Hello community,

I'm using HW monitor to watch temps on my 6700K cooled with a Corsair 115i. I'm trying for an OC of 4.8@ 1.38. Using HWMonitor the temps sit around mid 70-80C on average running real bench but occasionally Max at around 90. The thing is when it hits max it's only for split second and then the temps tend to be ok. Does anyone else have the same issue, is this normal?

MSI 980 Ti SLI

Cheers and thanks,

Thanks! In the end I'm just gonna settle with 4.6 at 1.35V. I managed to get 4.8 but just found it running a bit hot for what I like.
