0.) Make sure the pins are secured properly, they are a PITA.
1.) Disable HT
2.) Set core voltage to 1.15
3.) Disable turbo / Set manual clocks and disable stepping.



The CPU is set up properly. I'm sure. And if I had to disable HT, change core voltage and etc, why did it start warming up so much after a few months of work? :/ Why didn't it start warming up from the beginning? :/

OK. I cleaned it again and now the temps are better. For 1 min at the stress test it got to 70 Celsius. 20 Degrees improve! But still, can you tell me for the Thermal Pastes? I mean.. This is probably the Intel's Thermal Paste. Is the other one better? How much improvement will I see? I mean... 70 Celsius is still a very big value. :/ It's a LOT better than it was but I want to keep it cooler. And thanks to everybody!

hello kristiannn i got a 870 and i was having the same problem with my PCU, i brought a corsair H70 (watercooling). but it still heating a little bit (around 35c at 0% and around 55 and 57 at 100%). i don't know but i think it can be a manufacturing probleme.
