Guys i have a i7 6700k 40c on idle and 75c on load while gaming, are these good temps?

The i7-6700k doesn't even begin to throttle until 100°C. Anything below 70°C under full load on all cores is acceptable as being pretty safe and anything under 80°C, while not desirable, is probably not going to cause damage as it would never see those temps under normal usage. Still, if you CAN keep it below 65°C, that would be beneficial.

Are you overclocking? Thought about using an AIO water cooler?

What Bizzle said. Better to keep it under 70 though. What is your overclock? Also what HoldenCaulfield3 said. You need to use liquid cooling. What is your vcore? Have you tried lowering it?

Oerclocked to 4.5 ghz with 1.350 V.
The thing is that two days ago i had like 30c on Idle and 65c on load while gaming.

But then after that suddenly the temps went up like 8 celcius. I also know that i had to turn off the pc a cpuple times that day by pressing the powerbutton instead of Windows shutdown cause Windows was gettin stuck on the 'turning off' screen a couple times. Could that had any effect on the temp changes?

FullThrottle is amazing at this kind of stuff. He helped me with mine. Try to find him on ts. I'm sure he'll help you.

I would also recommend checking out JaysTwoCents on YouTube, he is an authority in this field.  I've watched enough of his videos and used his recommendations successfully to say his method is arguably the best. Long story short, you want to increase your core clock first, leaving the stock voltage alone, stress test and up the core clock till its not longer stable, then and only then increase the voltage in the smallest increments possible till stable again, then up the core clock again till its unstable, and keep repeating till you hit the wall so to speak. He has plenty of videos on this topic so I'm sure you'll be able to get a stable overclock under the 70c mark, best of luck!!

Musket,

Everyone above is correct. You may choose to follow any of those suggestions. Here's mine:

With air cooling, the overclock ceiling will be somewhat low. But that's fine, overclocking is still possible. Schyler said you have an ASUS motherboard, meaning you have access to AI Suite 3. This is one of the easiest ways to get a stable overclock. We will use this because we aren't trying to get too high of an overclock, otherwise manual would be better.

1. Go into AI Suite 3.
2. Click on 5-way Optimization.
3. Select Extreme Tuning, TPU 1, All cores, Start from assigned ratio (43).
4. Target CPU Voltage of 1.30V, CPU frequency 4600 MHz. Target CPU Temp 80 degrees Celcius. This will be a synthetic test, meaning your real world temps should be slightly lower than this.
5. Stress test duration 20 seconds. Its fine.
6. Uncheck EPU, Uncheck Fan.
7. Hit start.

Computer will restart, you may have to open AI Suite 3. Test will begin until target is reached, or failure occurs. If target is reached, you are good to go. If it fails, computer will bump down 1 notch and restart.

Let me know what you get. Each CPU is different. More voltage could be needed, but give this a try first.

I was able to get an I7 3770k @4.6 Ghz to idle at 0c, and full load at 40c

Delidded the cpu, hooked up an H110i with 4 high cfm fans running as intake.....then sat it in front of a 15,000 btu, window air conditioner.

Thanks for the tips and info, ill try this and some other things (renewing thermal paste etc), hope it brings my temp back down as before.

No gym at your college?

Absolutly, too bad thats a drive. But worth it

Long enough to go to the gym though.

Having a 2 hour break between classes kinda blows. Too short to go home, too long to stay entertained.

Also, the PVP aspect of it is really fun. It is comparable to Quake and Unreal Tournament.

If we keep growing we are planning on adding fireteam channels under the Destiny 2 channel so it isn't so crazy in the main channel.

I mean, I personally enjoy it. We have a pretty active crew (2-4) people who log in every day that can help you out if you have any questions.
