Megahalem hight temps please help!

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
ok so I have had my Megahalems for about 1 year now and I have always had high temps and never bothered to ask for help until now

I wan to push my OC to 4.2 but the temps i have at 4 are pretty high alot higher than most people with the same cooler

originally i thought it was my case but now i have a cooler master Haf X with all the fan ports taken I have reapplied my TIM (OCZ freeze) like 5 times yesterday i re did it smoothing it out with a credit card yet I always get same temps.

ambient today is about 22C usually about 27-28C

here are some pics please help guys

100% Load load after 10 mins of prime95 (these temps get up to about 85-89 on a normal day, fan at 100% output)

System, the fan is in a push position and the rear 140 is pulling the air out of the case

It doesnt seem that high to me.

try lowering the vcore and see if your OC is still stable. That will lower temps.

1.25 volts is pretty dang good for 4Ghz on air. Have you taken off the heat sink to check the mount and see how the tim spread out. What cfm is the 38mm, as i'm guessing 80 maybe?

CFM is 114

I just ran out and bought some AS5 load temps are now 74-77 across all cores after 10 mins of prime95. alot better (since my room as actually pretty hot right now) but still not the desirable 60's on load that some people have on here... guess ill have better luck in a few months when the winter rolls around

Do they continue to get hotter than what you show? Because It looks that Prime95 screenshot is just a minute into running Prime.

Well that is a lot of cfms indeed. I got the same cooler but the shadow edition. And all i use is 1 yate loon on it and i think it is like a 80 cfm and it cools my 980 fine with just it. My only thought is that heat sink really doesn't need a high cfm fan on it. But to each their own.


I guess honestly it was either a bad tim/mount issue or the thermal paste was getting old maybe then. Glad you got it down though. Have fun.
