After filling those gaps, you can go ahead and apply paste as you would with a flat-based heatsink.

If you don't do this, then you'll continue to get bad temps like this.  Your temps are safe, but they should be maxing out in the 50s with your overclock and core voltage.

I did exactly that. My temperatures are low compared to others but his temperatures are just out of this world.

But if your core voltage according to CPU-Z is about 1.2V with an overclock of 4.2 GHz, then your temps should not be at 72.  Instead, they should be in the 50s.  I mean, I would expect 72 for Ivy Bridge, but not Sandy Bridge.

 

If you filled the gaps, then the only other thing I can think of is perhaps the heatsink isn't tightened down enough.

my i5-3570K @ 4.2GHz (1.216v) runs cooler than my 2500K...
I use the spread technique with thermal paste, not the pea size then drop heatsink..
as stated though my ambient (room) temps are probably lower than yours...

good-luck.

I was wondering if this motherboard (z68 deluxe) includes a SSD of (4gb) to be used as caching or I'm just dreaming or cofused about this? tongue.gif

I have run into a strange issue with my board that I can't figure out. I recently relaced my gtx260 core216 with a gtx650ti. All I did was swap cards and now my computer is hosed. I made it into windows upon booting up and updated the drivers and when I rebooted that was the last I ever saw of windows. My board gave me the red death light by my memory sticks. I unplugged the power and tried again. It forced me into the bios and after a reboot all I got was the red light by the memory sticks again. I tried just one stick and got it to post after 3 or 4 tries and the same thing after a reboot. Red light again. Swapped the single sticks several times, tried both sticks and nothing. I tried the different (black) memory slots and got it to bios once. After this try I never got it to post again.

I tried slipping in my old video card and it was a no go. Tried onboard and nothing so it's not a card issue since it won't even get as far as posting. Tried the memory check button many times and nothing works. Is this some dead memory or has something gone wrong with my board. I don't have another system available to test either and see which is bad. I thought maybe static did a number on my memory but I never even came close to touching them, or the board for that matter.

have you cleared CMOS.?
post #7687 of 9343
Yes. One of the first things I tried. Luckily G,Skill memory has a lifetime warranty so if I narrow it down to that I can get it replaced. I just wanted to be sure that was the problem and not the motherboard.
post #7688 of 9343
a different set of RAM will eliminate / troubleshoot the issue and if the problem still occurs then motherboard..

That's the issue. I don't have the extra ram to check it out and I don't want to go out and buy a set and them not be the issue. Money is just too tight right now for the guessing game.

It's just really strange that I could get it to post a couple of times and then the error after the reboot. After another day of not even getting it to post I gave up and swapped out my motherboard for an older e8400 setup so I could at least have a working computer.
post #7690 of 9343
so the board is out of the case right now.?
look for any busted/blown caps.?
(I ask because now it won't even post..)
