    What should the idle temp be for an i5 3470 + H80i?

    Im intrigued to know as I get around a 37 degree idle temp, which doesn't seem right to me.

    I used Arctic MX-2 thermal paste to apply it. Any ideas?

    That is not ok. Unless the PC is next to a radiator.

    Would say between 20-30, depending on the ambient temperature.

    Does it clock down in idle? EIST enabled?

    It used to be in front of a radiator, but it was set up as exhaust. I'll add some pictures and more info when I get to my pc

    Re: What should the idle temp be for an i5 3470 + H80i?

    Hovering around 0.9V

    I spent the most of yesterday re configuring the fans etc and I've now got it set up as follows: http://prntscr.com/5ixeqj

    On idle, it's hovering around http://prntscr.com/5ixeya

    However, it can jump to 37 ish http://prntscr.com/5ixfhj

    Re: What should the idle temp be for an i5 3470 + H80i?

    I have the same chip, idles at 31-32 with fan at 1900rpm (I run it at 1250 with a target temp of 65C, thought I would give best case scenario.) Which in fact does not make any difference. I think the die shrink make heat dissipation awful. This is on a HDT-1283, in a P183 which has horrible air flow and needs a dust. Ambient is about 18C. Voltage 0.95 to 1.05. I have a the free 4 bin OC so it runs at 3.8 to 4.0.

    prime95; large FFT; 4 mins has stabilized at 58-60C for the 'package'. fan hitting high of 1290rpm. These relatively lightweight direct touch coolers rely heavily on fan speed.

    I would not worry about the idle temps but more the load tbh. Sounds fine to me.

    That sounds like a normal temp

    My stock Intel cooler would be lower than that. And quieter.

    When you're spending 60 ish pounds on a cooler it should perform better than that.

    Re: What should the idle temp be for an i5 3470 + H80i?

    It does seem rather high for a idle temp. My load temps aren't that high. Seems more like temps from the stock cooler. Have you tried reseating the block/pump? What are load temps like?
