CPU Temperature Spikes

HP Recommended
HP Omen 880-130
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hey guys


So I have an HP Omen 800-130 that has a liquid-cooled I7 8700k in it. Recently I downloaded CPUID HWMonitor and have been using it to monitor the temperature of my CPU. I originally had overclocked the CPU using the Omen Command Center to 4.7ghz with default voltage and cache ratio and when gaming I noticed that after a session of a few hours, HWMonitor had shown a max Package temperature of ~95C. 


I restore the CPU to the default of 4.3ghz and another night I did the same thing and gamed for a few hours with HWMonitor in the background and after I noticed the package temperature had maxed at ~91C. 


As I am typing this I have HWMonitor open and nothing else but this browser and I see the CPU package temperature at an average of 34C but even now it has split second spikes to 75C while doing almost nothing. 


I know the I7 8700k runs hot but these temperatures are not normal especially for a liquid-cooled system.  Can anyone speculate on what the problem may be or how I can fix these temperatures?

@KyleK66, welcome back to the forum.


The first thing that I would try is, use a different app to monitor the temps to see if that makes a difference in the readings.  I have seen situations where one app reads temps one way and another app reads differently.  The idle temps seem to be running the same as my i7-8700K OC'd to 5.0 GHz and voltage at 1.20.
