    4790K Burning

    Hi all,

    I'm a 3D Artist, bought a new PC for work. The problem is my 4790K has a temperature of around 45 Celsius on idle and goes beyond 100 Celsius when I simply render a small texture. (I don't dare running a heavy test on it). No overclocking, stock cooler. (thermal paste and cooler aren't the issue).

    After lots of research I came to realize lots of people have the same problem and it's coming from the motherboards. Whether Gigabyte or Asus it has something to do with voltages and TDP. I unfortunately have no experience in this manual voltage settings. It says on Intel forums some motherboards have no good voltages set for 4790K by default as per this document.

    I have not been able to work for 2 days ATM because if I do it certainly burns down the CPU.
    Please someone share with me the optimal values I have to set through my Maximus VII Ranger bios.

    Thank you.

    Edit: Extreme Tuning Utility's Manual tuning page loads blank on my end.

    Hello maximum - Dev

    The 4790k runs hot, especially with the intel stock cooler.

    With everything at default/ stock/auto settings, your cpu will get over volted some. You can lower the cpu voltage in the bios and this should help with temps a little. I will recommend you to upgrade your cpu cooler to something like the corsair h100i, if you don't like the liquid coolers then a noctua would do a good job too.

    if you went with the corsair h100i you could overclock your 4790k to 4.8GHz - 4.9GHz, just be sure it will fit in your case.

    You aren't giving us much such as what case and hsf you're using. The stock cooler is worthless especially if you're using onboard graphics which adds to the heat profile.

    Sounds like the HSF isn't making proper contact.

    Here is what I use on maximus vii hero, bios 2201
    The bios for my board is bugged, notice in the first foto the values of 11 and 14, the real values are multiplied by 8; if I read them in windows (intel xtu) it will show 88w and 112w. Feel free to use 88 and 110 in these fields, maybe your bios is better, just check the values in windows; default is 4096w for both, so ending up with 88x8 is safer than the defaults
    And please invest 50 bucks in a decent cooler, these settings are helpful but that cooler is not for rendering textures...
    edit : regarding xtu - at least use it to read the values and make the changes from the bios
    I had some problems with it at first, it did not show cpu speed and temp after benchmarks; after a fresh OS install, I did not install any of the asus rog software (ai suite etc) and everything is ok now, so I advice to stay away from rog software.

    Hey Maximu-Dev, I think you posted again but for some reason I can't see it.

    Not sure why I don't see the posts I send myself too.
    I suspected it might vanish so I kept a copy of the text.

    @Mayh3M, As I have stated in the OP, unfortunately XUT doesn't give me anything on that page. And even if it did I would have not known to change values to change what. http://8pic.ir/images/a54o3t30idkfcepbzz0d.jpg

    @Nate152, I have just bought these and unfortunately I don't have enough money for a good cooler, and I can't make money if we don't get this to work properly. Sure the stock cooler isn't enought but 50 degrees on zero load and 70 degrees in bios is still much beyond the the usual temps for a CPU in this condition.

    Currently these are the values in my bios:

    CPU Core Voltage 1.008v
    CPU Cache Voltage 1.154v
    Initial CPU input voltage 1.856v

    I assume you meant to lower the CPU Core Voltage? If so, lower how much?
    And here is my CPU Z stats if you need. http://8pic.ir/images/pxfvdg6q2qf1j4tggyzt.jpg

    @Puffnstuff, No I'm not using the onboard graphics.
    @Squall_Rinoa89, I have checked both heat sink and thermal paste multiple times before posting. Trust me.

    Thank you all. I hope you'll help me get this working alright as soon as possible.

    Your posts were moderated because you're a new user posting links (anti-spam measure). So resubmitting the same post is only going to have multiple posts in the moderation queue. I believe it should have informed you but if not sorry for the confusion. I approved the last one and deleted the others.

    Thank you for that xeromist

    We were communicating via pm and Maximum-Dev is reapplying thermal paste, so we'll see if that helps with his temp issue.
