    Hello all,

    I recently delid my i7 7700K, and replace the stock paste with Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut.
    There's a massive difference in temps, form 90 C to 65 C under full load via Prime 95, and in game temps barely touches 60 C.
    Although there's a huge difference in temps under load, there is no difference in temps at Idle.
    At idle it was average 45 C before and its 45 C after delidding.
    So did I do anything wrong in the delid process..???
    My room temperature is 33 C
    I use corsair H100i V2 Cooler.
    Everything is at stock, NO OVERCLOCK.

    Hi, i recently had my 7700k delided by by an ebay seller using Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut and my idle temps dropped from 35c to 28c, its the full load temps that make te difference though.....57c instead of 85c and no random spikes during idle so no hissy fit from my Corsair h110i gt.

    I would say considering room temperature is 33C, 45C idle is not far fetched. Maybe it can go down to 40C. Do you have a custom curve? Try to maximize the fan speed (wear ear protection for those stock Corsair fans :p) and see if the temp goes down. Also where is the cooler located and in which direction is the airflow going? Front/Air in, Top/Air out or Top/Air in?

    I am not sure about the room temperature, as its 42 C outside so I took a wild guess, so it maybe more than 33 C.The liquid temp shows 37 C in corsair link.
    I did turn up the fans and the pump to max and it was idling at 39 C.(All 4 cores)
    Radiator is located at the top pushing the hot air out, also I have a big case Cooler Master Stryker, so lot of space to move air, I have 2 120 mm intake fans at the front and 1 140 mm exhaust fan at the back.

    Forgot about the liquid temp. Since it's at 37C, the CPU temp cannot be lower than that. Maybe the only way to decrease the temp to 40C without having jet-engine noise constantly :p, is to put the fans as intake to push fresh air in although I doubt it's worth the hassle and might not make a difference at all. I'd say since it's pretty hot, 45C idle is normal. And I think that' what I idle with the same cooler (different fans and CPU) when summer comes.

    About a month ago or so it used to idle at 36 C without delid, because then it wasn't that hot outside.
    The temperature will rise and summer will be at its peak for the next 2-3 months so I guess Idle temps may rise further more.
    Which fans are the best for this cooler and what you use.

    Are they better than Corsair fans, because they have lower rpm than corsair sp120.

    Have you disabled your power saving settings in bios? 45c does seem high for stock idle. What is the cooler temp at...your cpu temp should be with in a few degrees off that and room temp.

    I would check to see if your cores are downclocking or not and what you vcore is during idle.

    Cooler temp is at 37 C when Cpu is at 43-44. Sometimes 45.
    I have not disabled any power saving in bios. Vcore is 1.1xx at idle.

    It's his ambient temp, if it dropped to around 22c - 24c it would make a huge difference.

    Actually when Slimmy427 said the " cores are downclocking or not" it gave me an idea.
    I went into power options, and saw it was set to high performance, so the cpu was all the time at 4500 mhz and v core at 1.26.
    I switched to balance mode and now the cpu is about 900 mhz and Vcore is at 0.6v at idle.
    Cpu temp is 41 C while the liquid temp is 37.2 C.
    So this basically solved my problem.
    Thank you everyone for their help.
    Really appreciate it.
