Troubleshooting temps

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
New build, about a week and a half old. It's my sig rig. After replacing the stock intel CPU fan with the Antec Kuhler 620 I started monitoring temps and noticed it didnt keep my CPU as cool at all. So I thought it was a problem with the antec and I just replaced it with the stock intel CPU fan. Currently it's at 3.4ghz so a very tiny OC but I'm noticing the temps suck just as bad with the intel CPU fan. I do not know what the temps were before so it may have been getting up there but I do not know.

The temps, so at idle it's about 40-50 degrees, when I do something cpu intensive like gaming or SETI@Home it climbs to over 83 degrees celcius before I stopped whatever I'm doing. What could be the problem? I cleaned the CPU each time with isopropyl alcohol. Could it be that the TIM is still wet or is there something else that might be causing the problem?

Those temps were definitely too high with the Antec, did you have the pump on 100%?

The Intel HSF should do better than that, not much better, but better than what you are seeing I beleive. I never tried using mine. On the Intel HSF make sure the pins are pushed in all the way, look on the back, and make sure it looks like this:

Yep, It was "clicked" into place then the knobs turned into place. I've installed the Asus utility and it's a little more promising but it still looks like something's going on because it's getting way too hot way too quick.

How are you applying the TIM, and what kind are you using?

the only stuff I had available is the Dynex stuff from bestbuy. I applied a pea sized one directly in the middle. Then I put the heatsink on and clicked it into place.

what program are you using to monitor temps? what core voltage is being pumped through that bad boy? That seems high even for stock, those baby's run cool under stock conditions and you are very close to stock.

Radioshack, and staples also have TIM available locally is most cases. I'll run to Radioshack and pick up a tube of AS5 if I run out of TIM, and need some that day. Staples usually has some Antec stuff, but it's like $15. Just for future reference. I don't know how good Dynex TIM is, but even with the worst TIM ever you still shouldn't see those temps. Generally the difference in TIM is typically 1-4C depending on the quality of it.

It looks stock, I don't believe I've changed those values. cputemps.png
