    i7-6700 (non K) temperature spikes


      My cpu temp is constant 25 celcius, but whenever I run a process it jumps to 40-45 for a second and gets back to normal.

      When cpu on full load, about 30-35 celcius and jumps to 70-75 for a second.


      At first I tought its related to unstable vcore voltage, so I turned off the C states in bios, and yet even with totally stable vcore voltage I got the temp spikes.


      I only started looking into it because my fans went crazy.

      Even when PC is idle the fans go full power for a few seconds whenever a background process starts.


      Everything else is working perfectly, no lags or freezes.

      But because my fans are in PWM mode, every spike causes them to spin faster and back to normal in matter of seconds.


      Is it normal for a cpu to act like that ? Or maybe its some uncallibrated sensor issue ?


      Motherboard temp: 30 constant

      DDR temp: 30 constant

      Max GPU temp: 57 (during heavy gaming)
