    i7-6700k weird temps?

    AnthonyP

      Hey guys

       

      Have a i7-6700k

      H100i GTX AIO cooler

      ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming Motherboard

      16gb Corsair Ram

      Gigabyte GTX G1 980ti

       

      My Temps at idle are about 23-29c

       

      But if i do anything, i mean even open up a browser the temp will spike to about 70-80c for a sec and then instantly cool back down to idle temps.

       

      If i run a stress test the temps will max out at 81c and then instantly as i stop the stress test the temps go back to idle.

       

      This is playing havoc with my fans as they will ramp up everytime i click something with the mouse

       

      I have checked and replied thermal compound. Are the temps reading wrong

       

      Any help would be great thanks

          Hello, AnthonyP:

           

          Could you please run the Download Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool and attach the report once done?

           

          Regards,

              Hi amy, since installing this program my temps are now only peaking at 65, down from 83, was there any micro code update with this Diag tool?

              Results bellow. the cpu is still spiking when i do anything just not as bad

                Thank you for the report.

                 

                According to it, everything seems fine with your processor, maybe you could try setting the default settings in the BIOS and see what happens.

                  Thanks

                   

                  I have attached an image that shows what i mean, the temp will spike 10-20c on the slightest of cpu usage. i have used a temp sensor and sat it on the side of the CPU heat spreader and i got a constant 27c on idle and 44c on load. but the readings from the CPU sensor dont reflect this.

                   

                  This image is just me doing basic web browsing no video or gaming and the temp will not stabilize

                    This behavior is normal. As long as the case temperature stays under 64°C it is OK, see here for the TCASE specification Intel® Core™ i7-6700K Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.20 GHz) Specifications.
