I can post a screen shot of HWMonitor as soon as I get home, but room temps are around the low 20's C.

Or which software program most accurately shows temp? I know I could get an infrared thermometer, but even that's just going to measuring the temp of the heatsink and not the actual core...

I always look at the area under the CPU name.

Kind like this

AMD Phenom II x4 955
-Core 0
-Core 1
-Core 2
-Core 3

I never even looked at TMPIN.

Sooo... I realized I wasn't going to get the temps I was after without some adjustments, so I ordered the following:

2 - XIGMATEK eXTREME SILENT Series XSF-F8252 80mm Case Fan (the silverstone Grandia GD05 has a rectangular vent for exhaust that fits two 80mm fans)

1- XIGMATEK eXTREME SILENT Series XSF-F1252 120mm Case Fan ( the case came with two on one side but had another spot for one more fan on the opposite side of the case)

and last but definitely not least..... 1- Scythe Big Shuriken 2 cooler!

hopefully this takes care of my problem....

Move the 2 side fans to one pushing air at front and one pulling air out the back to create a flow, need pull heat out the case, have you tried lowering the volts on the CPU, you might get 1.2 volts. What's the stock voltage now

this reminds me of a build i just finished for a mate, idles were mid 50's on stock cooler, hyper tx3 took them down to 40's after the AS5 cured....benched with cine and it went to 58c. he is currently playing Skyrim with no major heat issues (high 40's to low 50's). Is it a 95w chip? Max temp on them is 72c...currently searching for his tread

edit: my post using his username http://www.overclock.net/t/1171810/new-build-temperature-issues-help-required-please/10

he still idles around mid 40's but temps don't go overboard on load (was there last night, hit 49c after 3+ hours of rimming blinksmiley.gifblushsmiley.gifwhistle.giftongue.gif )

Just a couple points of clarification.

While the computer is in the BIOS, the CPU is NOT idle, so the temp you see there, while it should go up and down with CPU frequency and vcore, it is not equivalent to idle conditions.

OP, what are your ambient temperatures, and does your case appear to have sufficient airflow?

Seems to me you are reading the motherboard CPU temp, which on average is 10 to 11C higher than the actual core temps which are what you need to be keeping an eye on.

375

Same processor, OC'd :

CPU 4142 MHz @ 1.425 vCore
FSB 259 NB @ 1.15 V
MULTI x 16.0
NB 3106 MHz @ 1.36875 V CPU/NB
RAM 1726 MHz @ 1.55V
HT 2071 MHz

You can see the core temps read 55C and the mobo-cpu temps are 64C. This is with a 92MM push-pull CoolerMaster Hyper N 520. Ambient temps were 70F.

I wouldn't let my cores go over 60C, I wouldn't pay much mind to the CPU temps from the mobo.

If you unlock, you can't see actual core temps - if this is the case, assume that your core temps are about 8C lower than the reading.

DONT OC WITH YOUR CASE OR COOLER.

I see you got some fans and a cooler, this will help and you should be okay with that processor at about 3.8GHz and 1.32 vCore or so... maybe a little higher. Test it with the lowest volts possible and work up in tiny increments to find a max stable OC on the least possible voltage for the lowest possible temps!

Good luck, let us know the new temps with a screenshot when you get the fans installed.

ALSO- based on your OP - it seems to me you added thermal compound to the heatsync without removing the stock paste on the cooler. If this is the case, too much thermal paste (your thermal paste is great, but not mixed with stock paste on top of it) can actually insulate your chip rather than transfer heat. Shin Etsu by MASSCOOL is what I use, and swear by now. Many others do as well. It has no cure time and works wonders at transferring heat. Cleans up nicely and is easy to work with. Is also non conductive.
