My i7-7700k is just too hot, plz help with finding an AMD equiv (or better for same price)
Tried:What price would this be? New? Used? Does this include motherboard?
Personally would identify the heating issue before purchasing new hardware. Have you done this?
what is the temps for your i7 7700k on load
100 degrees in rainbow six siege. 66 degrees idleWhat’s the problem with it being hot? As long as it’s not getting over 85c there is nothing to worry about. If you are going to get a new motherboard and CPU it might as well be an upgrade, seems pointless spending on a side grade.
What RAM do you have? Ideally for Ryzen you want dual channel and 2666mhz or above.
What do you use the pc for? For multithreaded workloads you can achieve big improvements with Ryzen. For single threaded workloads there isn’t really an upgrade.
Don't know the thermal paste, whatever came with the cooler, CRYORIG M9i 48.4 CFM CPU Coolerwhat cooler are you using and what thermal paste, also what is your room temps
Maybe.Get a better cpu cooler. Your current one obviously is inadequate or improperly installed (or broken, if it is liquid AIO cooler).
Going off this, it should still be 78.5 under load, and thats overclocked as well, which mine is not. So idk what it is.
That's not big enough.To answer your question, the best value CPU these days is the Ryzen 5 3600 (2600 is $80 cheaper but might give worse gaming performance than 7700k) which is around $190-200.
It should give equal or better gaming performance compared to the 7700k, also you'll be future proofing by having 12 cores (6+6) vs 8 with the i7 (4+4). I would also guess that it runs cooler due to 7nm process, and the stock cooler actually isn't terrible.Also, assuming you can actually sell the 7700k at a decent price, it wouldn't be such an expensive upgrade.
HOWEVER, obviously the most cost effective route is just buying a decent air cooler, this one is tried and tested and only costs $35: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005O65JXI?tag=pcpapi-20&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1.
The thing is.. thats almost exactly me, I'm in Australia, open windows, mid-day, but im in a cabin so its not really "in the sun" exactly. But it's still 38 degrees100°C load, 66°C idle, you have issues. Idle should be much lower unless you are in Australia and the pc is sitting next to an open window at mid-day, in the sun.
30-40 degrees CelsiusReapply thermal paste, reinstall cooler.
What is your ambient room temperature?
This is about 10 seconds, it jumps a lot View: https://i.imgur.com/c8Sd7rn.gifvplease provide the following
temp. of each individual core and not just the package temp , ( use a program like hardware monitor)
