AMD X2 3800+ Idle Temps @ 40*C and Load @ 62*C

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I just bought a AMD X@ 3800+ Manchestor ADA3800BVBOX. I get 40*C on Idle without any overclock. I've got a Freezer 64 Pro heatsink. And it hits 50*C on load.

However, on a 2.4Ghz overclock I still idle at 40*C. My concern is that the load is at 62*C. It shouldn't be that hot.

I've researched this processor and it seems like the max temperature is 66*C (For the ADA model). Am I safe running it at those load temps? Normally it'll never be at that kind of load, but still.

I think your best bet maybe doing a re-seat of the heat sink, maybe a lap\\clean-up job and making sure your case temps are as low as possoble. Also minimal and correct application of thermal paste is a must.

Load temps that high on that voltage is high. Ok mate compared to mine- At 100 % load both cores, ambient 25c it is running at 33c on standard volts at 2300MHz, Speedfan reported, a lot less than you are getting.

I'll try reseating it. What are the temps that you guys currently run?

Oh, and what's your voltage at? What's the stock voltage 1.35?

40c @ idle and 60+c at load, something is odd here!
What might be at issue...
1. The HSF can handle the load. (doubt that considering your unit is good one)
2. Excessive thermal compound used.
3. Poor case air flow.
4. Misreported temps.

The BIOS temp should reflect about 80% of the full load, unless one or more of the above are at issue.

Reset the heat sink and reapply as5 just a BB size will do, I have one @2.8ghz with 1.5vcore load temps are 47c. so theres something a miss with your setup.

Never forget! More than likely those temps are just fine.

you over clock your 3800+ to a 2.4. i know you did cuz the 3800+ comes stock at 2.0 the 4600+ comes stock at 2.4. just get a zalman cnps9500 heatsink. and don't connect the fan controller. as you lose 2000 rpm when you do.

Ok, so I don't know what the crap is wrong. But I did a reseat and used less Artic Silver 5 this time but my idle non overclocked temps are still 40*C and load 50*C. Why is it so freakin hot? I've got a nice aftermarket heatsink!
