CPU overheating???

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
hi guys...
just a while back i tested my cpu with linx and prime and found it stable with max temp being 85(stock cooler)...

and in games it barely went over 72 except for gta 4 which could take my cpu upto 78 sometimes....

but yesterday i played assassins crred brotherhood for just 1 hour and my cpu temp was 77
usually before, it always hovered around 68-69 degrees in assassins creed brotherhood....

and today i played fallout new vegas for 2 hours and again i found my cpu temp around 87 degrees
and usually my cpu never went over 72 in this game ever...even after 4 hours of playing....

and so just to be sure i ran linx and prime again today and found my temps crossing 95 degrees mark

im using core temp for noting the temps...

everything in my pc is at stock except graphic card....
my case is custom modded and has sufficient airflow....

so what could be the reason for sudden temp increase....
and the weather here also has not changed much in the last month.....

pls help!!!!

EDIT: ambients r around 30-35 max.....at night it dips into higher 20's.....

Um,

85c is hot, Manually set your Vcore to 1.12 and then increase it until you're stable, the BIOS always gives it too much VCore.

Also, if you're running the stock cooler the thermal paste is pretty shoddy on that. I'd have a look at some aftermarket thermal paste or even a new cooler. The CM212+ is a great Aftermarket budget cooler.

Comps

Edit - You're in india, what's your ambient temp?

Buy a better cpu cooler and you will be fine. Stock coolers isn't that great. They are just enough to get you buy on. Can't believe you are running linX on a stock cpu cooler. Or leave the side of the case off to get a little more air flow inside the case.

the fact is im running my cpu undervolted at 1.14 volts i have seen that the vdroop of my mobo sets the stock voltage to as high as 1.34 volts....

and thats why i ran linx and prime and i was happy with my temps then...but since 2 days i dont know what is happening.....

i know stock tim and cooler r pos...but it was working fine a few days back...what could have gone wrong??????

i notice you are in India. what is the ambient temp?
this can have a big impact
i bet its getting hotter week by week, and your cpu temps are creeping up as well

also please please get a proper cooler

thats a good suggestion. Your surrounding temp plays a big role. Get a better cooler please since you oc'ed your cpu. Get a hyper 212+ with some As5 and you are good to go

No offence, but if you're going to be rude then you might want to go to another forum.

He posted that whilst you were posting yours.
