    Maximus X hero / i7 8700K settings?

    Hi there,

    I installed yesterday a maximus X hero, 8700K and Trident Z RGB

    I have an Eisbaer AIO LT 360



    I was quite surprised by the temps..

    Coming from a delidded 4790k which maxed out at 60 degrees (non oc) in game or stress test, seeing 70 degrees in Assassins creed origins and almost 80 in a 15 min real bench stress test ....

    I plan to delid my 8700K tonight (a friend will do it for me with the dedicated tool)

    But i have some questions about tweaks and bios settings to get the best of it (without oc for now) and reduce heating.

    First, are those temps normal? I read everything and its opposite about it and some people on FB groups claims to have a 8700K running 60 degrees max without delid and on an AIO.


    about vcore.

    Do you set vcore auto or manual? If manual, what value ? I considered putting 1.20 but maybe i can go lower?

    I deactivated Asus multicore enhancement and so i have :
    1 active core : 47
    2 c: 46
    45
    44
    44
    43

    Is that ok?

    What are the other settings you could advice me to change to have a stable and less warm CPU?

    Thanks a lot.
