25~35c idle, under load? I have no idea. Yes, those parts are compatible with your computer.

ok thanks, what do you think i will get with a CM 212 on idle? and are those safe temps?


I'm using CM 212 Evo, my idles are 15~23c, under load with prime95 and OC to 4.3GHz, 76c max. To me my safe temps are as long as it is under 80~83c. As for your safe temps question, they are safe.

Thanks alot man! Great info! What CPU do you have btw?

Ahh, it's on my profile, it is an i5 3570k.

Um, I would actually expect about 50-60 degrees celsuis under load, the stock cooler isn't that great and it is primarily designed only to keep ot from overheating under stock clocks. You have a margin of overclocking room, but you should really consider something aftermarket if you want to get the most out of your chip.

im not huge on overclocking so i prolly wont OC. But thanks :)

you should at least consider taking it to around 4 GHz. Most overclocking motherboards will have an EZ overclocking feature which should manage it even with stock cooling. With aftermarket cooling, you could probably push it to around 4.4-4.6. Depending on your cooling and your motherboard.

I have that board and cpu and can get 4.3 on auto voltage all you need to do is change the multiplyer

Stock cooler load temp with Turbo Mode enabled ~75*C

is that bad? and will the fan be going 100% and be loud as fuck with the stock cooler?

No, it just means you are recommended to not overclock with the stock cooler.
