Too friggen hot!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I managed to get my Phenom II x4 955 stable @ 4000mhz with 1.4vcore and 2600mhz NB with a slight raise. However the problem is heat. With 1 fan on my CM 212 I was getting around 62oc on prime. This is a little high for my liking so I added another 120MM fan with the cm 212 that was previously an exhaust fan and I replaced that exhaust fan with a 80MM fan. However now i'm getting 67oc on prime! I'm sure I set up the push/pull config correctly. Does anyone know what could be up? Right now its idling at 52oc and before it was at around 40oc idle.

Thanks
Silky Smooth.

52C is pretty hot... especially for idle.

Open up a couple of windows. Its starting to get cold. On another note how did you apply the tim?

The tim is applied properly. A little smaller than a pea size and then spread by pushing the heatsink down and tightening.

The 212+ is an HDT cooler. A pea size dot isn't the best way to apply to those.

Here is a good read. Here and Here. Read the "How should I apply the TIM?" Section

Even 40c is very high for CPU at idle. Your heat sink is not put on correctly or your CPU has a load on it at idle (malware may be the cause).

Whats the best way to set up fans in my case? At the moment I have finally gotten it to 58oc under load via intel burn test on extreme at 5 hours. However its really close to the reccomended high temp of 61oc so is my fan setting optimal?

At the front of my case I have two 120MM fans blowing air over my HDD's. Then I have push/pull on my 212+ followed by an exhaust push right infront of that to get rid of the heat. Would it be more beneficial if I had fresh air coming in from the exhaust, then push pull the opposite way and then the two fans at the front of my case as exhaust?

Please advise.

Blah, should have read your first post rather than skim it. I think I know what the problem is.

First: The 80mm fan on the back isn't strong enough to pull all the hot air out of the case

Second: It sounds like the fans on the 212 are different. Not only is it not optimal to have two different fans but you are also using ones for two different purposes. A case fan and a heatsink fan are different. Case fans generally have higher CFM but less static pressure which is important for a heatsink.

Check here for more info on that.

Get a better heatsink, you're probably hitting it's limits by now. I'm at 33idle and 44-46looad with a $25 rev B with the same set up @4.0Ghz and 1.368volts.
