Curious about the temperatures while overclocking, we fired up Core Temp 1.0 RC3 while running the AIDA64 System Stability test. Idle temperatures were taken after 15 minutes after booting to the desktop. Load temperatures were taken after 15 minutes as well.
The average temperature of the Intel core i7 3770k under a full load with default settings was only 54.5 degrees Celsius. Once we started pumping 1.35 Volts through the processor our temperatures increased dramatically, our average temperature across all of the cores was 92.5 Degrees Celsius, and one of the cores was hitting as high as 96 degrees Celsius! The Intel Core i7 2600K was more than 20 degrees Celsius cooler than the Core i7 3770K ‘Ivy Bridge’ Processor under the same circumstances even though we were running more voltage through it!
