Hello, I recently built a new computer with an I9-13900KF processor and a H170i Elite Capellix. During full load I can see on HWMonitor that the temperature goes up to 100°C . Is this normal? If not, what can be at fault? My full specs are as follows :


Operating System
Windows 11 Pro 64-bit
CPU
Intel Processor
RAM
128GB DDR5 5600 Corsair Platinum Dominator
Motherboard
ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. PRIME Z790-A WIFI (LGA1700) 32 °C
Graphics
DELL AW5520QF (3840x2160@119Hz)
ASUS PB287Q (3840x2160@60Hz)
2047MB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (NVIDIA) 36 °C
Storage
5589GB Seagate ST6000NE000-2KR101 (SATA ) 35 °C
1863GB Samsung SSD 980 PRO 2TB (Unknown (SSD))
Optical Drives
No optical disk drives detected
Audio
NVIDIA High Definition Audio
Case : Be Quiet Dark Base Pro 900 Rev2

As I plan to use this computer for running simulations, 100% usage is often expected. Thank you for your time!

100c. max might seem alarming, but it is really not, so long as the pc keeps on processing.
That 100c. might be only for a few milliseconds.
Look at the current temps for incividual cores which should be under 100c.
The 13900K is a very large and strong processor that can generate lots of heat when fully loaded.
It is doing the best it can given the cooling which is provided.
You really need do nothing.

What is the make/model of your psu?
A quality 850w unit or better would be appropriate for a 3080.

If performance of your apps is not satisfactory, you are looking at a 13900KS or a work station with many cores.

Ok that's a relief to hear. My PSU is Be Quiet Straight Power 11 850w 80plus so should be good enough. I haven't noticed anything wrong with the peformance, the apps are running great, I was just worried when it reached the 100C mark. I appreciate your response!

What load?

So 100°c with a 420mm radiator is normal? That's insane!

It's normal for this thing if left like this: PL1 = PL2. The 12900K was doing the same thing, but a little less bad.
It also doesn't help that this is all inside a Dark Base Pro 900 Rev2; airflow*.

If OP doesn't want to touch power limits, then they need a custom loop to keep off the 100C core thermals.
