    i7 7700k temperature issue




      I have just bought a new deskop system as below;

      -MSI Z270 Gaming Pro

      -Intel i7 7700k + Cooler Master X6 Air

      -Corsair 16GB Ram

      -Saphire Vapor-X R9 280X (my old graphic card)


      I just play Dota2 in hight graphic, and my cpu shows spikes like from 60degree up to 80degree

      and after 15 min it is going up to 90degree, I also saw 99degree

      and now I'm a bit scared about that temperature, I don't think those degrees and spikes are normal!

      could you please advise how can I fix this temperature issue and spike problems.

          Check your CPU cooler installation, otherwise:


          "We appreciate the feedback you have provided, and your patience as we investigated this behavior.  The reported behavior of the 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-7700K Processor, showing momentary temperature changes from the idle temperature, is normal while completing a task (like opening a browser or an application or a program).

          In our internal investigation, we did not observe temperature variation outside of the expected behavior and recommended specifications. For processor specifications, please refer to the datasheet.

          Most motherboard manufacturers offer customizable fan speed control settings that may allow for smoother transition of fan revolutions per minute (rpm). Please consult your motherboard manufacturer’s manual or website for instructions on how to change default fan speed control settings.

          We do not recommend running outside the processor specifications, such as by exceeding processor frequency or voltage specifications, or removing of the integrated heat spreader (sometimes called “de-lidding”). These actions will void the processor warranty.
