Hi, i just got an intel i7 3770k and i'm using a noctua NH-D14 for cooling. I've not tested my new system for a long time but after one hour of battlefield 3 the tool coretemp showed up to 66 degrees celsius. This seems way too much for me with that kind of cooler. I've not OCed the CPU. It was running at its turbo boost of 3,9 GHz. Is that normal? I mean that was just one hour... I'm afraid i did not applied the termal paste right or not enough... Normally i spread the termal paste manually on the CPU so that its totally covered with a thin film. But now I used the thermal paste from noctua that came with the cooler. It had such a consistency that manual spreading was nearly impossible so I used the "drop in the middle" method for applaying. Now i ask myself whether that is the problem for this temperatures or whether its normal for that CPU even with that cooler. Btw. the whole tower is well cooled by two 120mm front, one 120mm back and two 140mm top fans (all from noctua). I hope someone can tell me something about that issue.
