Cant keep 955BE under 60C @ stock voltage with 212+

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I idle at 47C, but even prime 95 sends me over 60C. I don't know what to do honestly. I never was this bad but now its running hot all the time. YES I checked and re-seated the heat-sink, I even disabled fan control so they are going 100% 24/7. But I just cant keep it cool anymore. Got any ideas?

What about your TIM how did you apply it and what did you use.

Arctic silver matrix, applied in thin lines down the heat pipes. I read all over and most people said it was the best way for this heatsink.

Try using a rice grain size in the middle, I'm using a lower-end 101A and I'm overclocked to 4.2 with 1.45v with idle of 25C and 45 prime.

Try completely reverting your overclocks and run the CPU at stock and try the temps.

That's a very nice oc, i'm going to reboot and check what stock is. I put different fans on the 212+ I have 2 120MM CM R4-C2R-20AC-GP in push pull, so its extra disappointing that the CPU is still to hot.

well check your seating again or if screws are tight because that temps are insane. thats what i get with stock cooler!! too much tim perhaps?

Running stock everything right now, all fans at 100%. 53C in Prime95 but climbing very slowly

BTW do you mean in the middle of each heat pipe? Because if I just put it in the middle of the pad it will fall completely into one of the grooves.

I used this method with my CM 212+ with the included paste but to my surprise my entire processor was only partially covered in TIM (about 60% coverage) after I took it off after a few weeks. My temps were very close to 60C under Prime at 3.8Ghz stock voltage (dual fans, btw). I do live under hot weather too.

Check if there's any defect with the cooler. There's no way that it has such high temps. Try the rice grain way to put the cooler on, and try again.

Make you dont have too much as too much will have a load of paste around your cpu, suffocating it.

You cooler might actually have heatpipe fail

Clean off the paste. Rice grain method = rize grain sized dob on the centre of the CPU, then mount the cooler making sure that you don't lift it up once it has touched the paste. A little tricky, especially with some coolers.
