Question Are these 7700K 4.8 overclock temperatures normal?

I have used my mainboard's TPU II setting to overclock my 7700k and I was wondering if my temps are all right. It overclocked the CPU to 4.8 GHz

Asus Maximus Code IX
3200Mhz Ram
Corsair h115i water cooler
i7 7700k
I used Thermaltake TG-3 Thermal Grease

Here are the idle temps and temps under load.

Yes it stayed at that levels. Went up by 1 degree in 5 minutes.

But I'm confused about cpuz reference. It looks like my 4.8ghz 7700k is about the same speed as 7700k at factory 4.2Ghz. Is cpuz giving me wrong information?

That's pretty high, CPU-Z's stress test is actually not hard to run at all, it doesn't push temps really that much. So if you were to run something like ROG RealBench I'm quite sure you'd hit the 90s.

Are you sure you installed the CPU cooler correctly?

The Asus auto oc utility, in my experience, runs far too much voltage. Have you attempted a manual overclock?

As techy said cpu-z bench doesn't hit the cpu that hard. Try realbench or prime95 for temp stability.


Also as mentioned make sure the cooler is properly installed and functioning as it should. I also found icue to give different readings than hwinfo64 when it came to temps. Not much, but worth a try to see if they're reporting close to the same.

Always state your ambient (room) temperature.

CPU-Z is not a 100% TDP workload; it's only about 80%.

If you want to run a valid 100% TDP workload, then run Prime95 VERSION 26.6. If you already have a later version, do NOT use it; run ONLY version 26.6. The Small FFT's test provides a steady-state 100% TDP workload which conforms to Intel's Datasheets.
