Crazy High CPU Temps Out Of The Clear Blue Sky - Experienced overclocker stumped - Page 2

post #11 of 16
That is a hard one to answer, your best bet would be to try that CPU on a different motherboard and see how the temps are on there(This is just to eliminate the possibility that the motherboard could be giving the CPU too much voltage on its own without you knowing it due to a faulty board_

If you get better temps on a different motherboard then its definitely is that your motherboard power regulation is bad_ If your still getting the same high temps on a different motherboard then there's the possibility that your CPU is just messed up/damaged. But who really has another motherboard laying around to test on right? lol Goodluck and hope you find your problem

I am an experienced overclocker and have been doing this for over 10 years, but I am at a complete loss here.

I have a Phenom II X3 at 4.1GHz w/ 1.42 voltage with a zalman 92mm cooler + artic 5 thermal paste. My load temps are typically around 52c at the very most when gaming and around 38c while im doing regular internet browsing or whatever else.

Now I was playing Bad Company 2 a few hours ago and my screen went black, so I restarted my PC from the tower. Then tried to play again and it happened again.

So I checked my CPU temps and they were at 80 degrees celcius.....yes I said celcius.

I opened my tower and checked my heatsink and everything was fine, fan was spinning, there was no dust and the heatsink was properly seated. But I reseated it and checked the thermal paste and it looked fine. So I turn my PC on with the case open, and boot up into windows and check temps...and its still 80c. So I restarted my pc immediately and went into the BIOS, lowered the overclocks down to 3.2GHz and lowered the voltages to stock as well and now temps are at 52c just sitting at the desktop screen. As I type this my CPU temp is 51-52c.

Why are my idle temps at stock settings, as high as my load temps were when overclocked?

Why did my CPU suddenly do this. The temps don't make any sense.

I have had my CPU overclocked at 4.1GHz for over 6 months and have never had heat issues. I game with HWMonitor on at all times and 52c is the max I have ever seen it go.

I am completely stumped. What is going on?
Maybe its a bad sensor, shouldn't 80C completely fry a pII

I run my unlocked x3 740 at ~1.47Vcore and ~1.48V CPU/NB 24/7, highest temps I get in BC2 are about 45C (or 50C when I turn off my 90mm front fan)

Doesn't matter if you haven't encountered problems. 4 hours of prime is nowhere near enough for stress testing.

I think we need more info from OP. How long has he had his rig stable @ that OC for? How long has he had the chip? Did he buy it new or resold? Did he stress test it thoroughly before gaming? What motherboard is he using?

EDIT: I'd like to add that I have the same cooler for my CPU. Did you accidentally turn down the manual little fanspeed controller that it comes with? (assuming you have it connected)

If not, how many RPMs is HWmonitor telling you the CPUfan is running @? I am not running a Phenom, but my CPU is OC'd 26% according to Everest. This cooler seems to be able to handle a lot of heat despite it's small stature.

^This. And i think a Phenom II should shut down it self when it reaches 70+C, no?

What's bios saying about temps ? Is it consistent with mobo's own software ? Simply, try to determine the difference between CPU and Socket temps.
