Question CPU Temps high on my i9 10850k

I am having real issues when I do any video digitizing. Sometimes when gaming, but it is usually only when I am pushing the CPU with creation content.

Here are some examples:

Idle Temps

HandBrake Temps - The real issue

COD Temps

My Setup:

Corsair ICUE 4000X Mid-Tower ATX Case
Gigabyte Z490 AORUS Ultra MB
Intel i9 10850k
EVGA RTX 3080
2 x - G.Skill Trident Z RGB 32GB DDR4 3200Mhz
GAMEMAX 850W 80+ Gold Powersupply
3 Front Mounted 120mm Cooling Fans
1 Rear mounted 120mm Cooling Fan
Top Mounted - Thermaltake Water 3.0 240 ARGB Sync Edition CL-W233-PL12SW-B Water Cooler

Any thoughts on how to lower these CPU temps during digital workload?
 
240mm radiators (in general) can be/are often considered 'moderate' at best for a hard-working 10850K...

As none of your links to pics/graphs were functional, we have no idea what temps you were actually seeing, or what clock speeds are being sustained during your workloads...; but IF running with power/boost duration limits disabled and attempting to run near max 4900-5000 MHz all core turbo clock speeds sustained, you can likely count on 90-95C temps.

With Intel's XTU, you can specify AVX offsets (reduced clocks in 100 MHz increments for AVX workloads, as knocking off 200-400 MHz will help), and/or specify lower clock speeds for all-core workloads... (knocking off 100-300 MHz from the specified all-core turbo might allow you to slightly lower core voltage as well, both of which can/will drastically affect temps, as it's often that last 100-200 MHz which needs an extra .1 V on core voltage which can spike temps by 12-14C)

Thank you for your reply. Unsure why the links are not working as they work for me.

Let me spell it out more:

At Idle it shows the following results:

Frequency 4901.18 MHz (100.02 x 49.0)
1.2925v

Power pull 8.3 watt
Avg core temp of 37 C
Top Core @ 38 C
Bottom Core @ 35 C Avg Load 1%

With Handbrake active digitizing:

4898.82 MHz (99.98 x 49.0)
1.4382v

Power Pull 221.0 Watt
Avg Core Temp: 95 C

For detail here is each core:

Core 0 : 92 C 92% Load
Core 1 : 86 C 91% Load
Core 2 : 99 C 91% Load
Core 3 : 93 C 94% Load
Core 4 : 100 C 89% Load
Core 5 : 99 C 90% Load
Core 6 : 98 C 91% Load
Core 7 : 99 C 92% Load
Core 8 : 91 C 90% Load
Core 9 : 93 C 93% Load

COD Temps:

Frequency 4901.18 MHz (100.02 x 49.0)
1.4681v

Power pull 66.9 watt
Avg core temp of 58.7 C
Top Core @ 73 C Load 63%
Bottom Core @ 53 C Load 20%


Hope this helps. Thanks so much.

Aww no, the auto voltages are out of wack on that board. It's related to this:

Still running over 1.40v even under heavy load? That's absurd.
Bring on the negative voltage offset, if you know how to do that.

I also believe a 240mm isn't adequate for the hardware you have - especially if this 240mm AIO is mounted at the top; it needs to be able to cope with the heat from not just the cpu, but that gpu too.
Both of them at the same time is a bit much.

I agree. Any decent 10850K does not need anywhere near that voltage.

@Txtdawgs72 - What software are you using to report CPU voltage? Core Temp only reports VID voltage which is not the same as actual core voltage. Try using HWiNFO and see what is reported for VCore voltage.

Here is my 10850K running fully loaded at 4900 MHz. Cinebench R23 only needs 1.190V to run reliably. You could easily drop your full load temperatures by 20°C if you learn how to lower your CPU voltage.
