My System Specs

Default Watercooled i5-750

I'm not sure if I should post this here or in the WC section, but here goes.

I just got my i5-750 under water in preparation for the chimps challenge. It's currently running at 4 Ghz, 1.4V Core, 1.3 V IMC, RAM at 1.5V. I'm getting a max temp of 65-70C on the various cores while folding with SMP and my 580. The thing is, the GPU maxes out at 42C under full load while folding (1.1V, 900 Mhz).

The CPU temperatures seem high to me when compared to the GPU temps. Are these CPU temperatures normal? If not, is it worth reseating the CPU block?

WC gear:
  • Supreme HF Acetal, plate 1, gelid GC1 thermal paste
  • Heatkiller GTX 580 block
  • Rs 240 with AP-15s in pull
  • EX 120 with F-12s in push/pull
  • TFC 120mm thick rad in push
  • Swiftech micro res V2
  • D5 vario (set to 3)

I used to have my I5 750 running @3.8ghz with temps around 65-70 under prime95. (Noctua nh-u12) I'd say your temps are safe.

Those temps are fine under full load, pretty good actually.
