    Question 8700K Temperature Check - Which application?

    Hi Carbonites,

    I want to have a look at my OC possibilities on the 8700K, but I'm not too sure which application to trust regarding temperature of the CPU.

    My BIOS GUI shows about 19-24c today, but Windows never shows any lower than around 35c (looking at RealTemp, Corsair LINK, and MSI AfterBurner).

    I installed the MSI Command Centre application, and that application shows a different temperature (which is very similar to BIOS temperature). Check out the following image, while idling in windows a few minutes ago:



    I've highlighted above the temperatures and maximums noted so far. Which application do you think is actually correct? 22c or 36c while idling?

    Also, check out the snippet taken while running IntelBurnTest:



    Is the real temperature of the CPU 60c (MSI application) or 75-77c (according to RealTemp, Corsair LINK, and MSI AB)?

    Let me know if anyone else is struggling with temperature on the 8700K

    Not sure if this will help but my 8700 non-k idles in 30's and peaks in early 70's. Using cooler master seidon aio.

    I use CoreTemp and HWMonitor. But you might be having the same problem as I do, my 7700K runs way too hot to even try and overclock. Saving grace is that I run it in one of the Asus boards, so with Core lock the board runs it at 4.6 during gaming. If I start touching any of the clocks the CPU runs into the 80's within 10-20s of starting Prime95.

    I am at the point where I would have to delid before I can extract more speed out of it, but on the flip side need to hold off in case I need to sell it on with warranty intact.

    Are these hot running CPU's by nature?... I get better temps on a 6950X at 4Ghz with a Corsair H75..

    I use Intel XTU to stress and measure temps though..

    Edit I am asking a question not trolling before someones panties get knotted..

    I get max 72 degrees on xtu on 8700k.this is when cpu turbo set to 4.7ghz. 1.2v.

    This seems normal though.

    I'm still not sure which application to trust. MSI Command Centre shows same CPU temperature as the BIOS. HWMonitor, CorsairLink, MSI AfterBurner and RealTemp show much higher.

    What's your ambient temperature? Hard to believe it's running at 22C while you're in Centurion.
    I think your MSI software is giving false temps and better go with Realtemp.

    Ambient temperature is sort of cool in the room - between 25-30 (higher if there is a heatwave).

    I have found something very interesting with this CPU and Motherboard.. the VCORE goes up to 1.45+ during stress tests done with IBT above. I have manually changed the VCORE to a strict 1.1v and have the following results:



    Thats a 18c temperature drop by manually under-volting from the "AUTO" setting. I have done a similar volt/frequency curve on the GTX1080 to only use 0.975v during boost (instead of 1.09 I think). I'll run 3DMark to check if all systems are collectively stable.
