Question for all you Noctua owners. Temps and fanspeed

#1DARQ MXPosted 8/29/2013 8:17:27 PM
I have a similar style hsf style. The Orginal Frio. (no not the blue one out now that is smaller) Yes. I know it isn't as great as the Noctua but it was also $40 bucks less at the time and is the same exact style, except the Noctua has wider fins and they are separate, however this thing is huge to begin with and also has 2 fans and 2 heatsinks.

It runs at 1700rpm and well it is a nice hsf and really showed to have better temps than every single HSF out there and even comparing to the Noctua some bench tests it even showed 1-2 degrees better on some but I am sure that is just a case or better thermal compound but either way it matched up with the Noctua.

Anyway. It is getting normal temps at idle and that is fine, however. I see people on here with overclocked 2500s on the Noctua getting 32c? on idle? Like how the hell? I am not even oc'd on my 2500k and I get 33-35c on my "cpu package" Which I believe is more accurate than the individual ones because those probes are probably too close anyway to the other cores. However it says 30c on my cpu, I only have my fans running at about 1700rpm which I believe is about 50-60% and this thing goes like 110cfm or so.

What are your RPMS at? Also I am using AID64 for my temp monitor.

Umm, well the average idle temp for me is around 40c. I live in DC, and this summer has been pretty hot. Although, while heavy gaming, I don't reach above 55c, without any overclocking. Light gaming, my hottest core was 49c. I also put IC Diamond on the CPU, if that makes any difference.

yeah its about 78 degrees F in here at those temps but I have an A/C going on some days. I will post back when I have the A/C off and see what I get. I improved my cooling a little and put too 75cfm fans on top.

I've got a 2700k clocked to ~4.4 on turbo with a slight bus overclock so it idles a little faster than default, not much. Right now my highest idle core is running at 34c. I also run the limiter that came with the cooler so the CPU fans are running at 1300rpms. Running prime95 it gets to about 68-71c depending on ambient temps. Live outside Houston where summer has been crazy hot and my AC can't keep up so it gets to around 75-76f in my place.

2500k at 4.5 under a Dark Rock Advanced and idle at 32c, max at 65c. Both the Frio and the Noctua should match that if installed correctly (with average ambient temps). That's with a fan speed of 850rpm so something's not right if you're running at 1700rpm.

Try Coretemp and see what that reports your temperatures at.

I should do a prime95, haven't done one in years or on this build. Did you run prime95 for each core? or just one?

If you're considering purchasing a NH-D14, get the Phanteks PH-TC14PE. It's been proven to produce lower temps by 2 or 3 degrees, nothing major, and has the benefit of not looking hideous when the inside of your chassis doesn't have a Tatooine theme.

haha and it doesn't basically rid your rear exhaust fan by being THE exhaust fan? haha..

I am plenty happy with my Frio. If I oc and don't like the temps than I will consider it. Thanks
