AMD X2 3800+ Idle Temps @ 40*C and Load @ 62*C - Page 2

post #11 of 27
update bios for that motherboard, dropped my temps 10+ c. When I first ran my computer, I had the same prob. as you. 40 celcius idle. Did everything you have done, change as5, etc... updated bio... 10+ c change or more. I run at 28 c now

Don't tell him to buy new hardware. What he has is fine.

How is your case airflow? Make sure that your case fans are setup for good airflow. Remember, heat rises.

Here is the thing:

I've been overclocking for a year now. I recently had a AMD64 3000+ Venice up to 2.4. I decided to go Dual-Core and got the 3800+. The layout is entirely the same except for the processor. The old 3000+ never got over 45*C oc'd with a load.

But this 3800+ is running really hot. I've got a 120mm in and 2 x 90mm out. I've got Freezer 64 Pro sitting on top of the cpu.

Anyone else have this heatsink? It seems like it doesn't quite cover the entire cpu. But that never affected my all processor at all. It's like the heatsink is just barely smaller than the top surface area of the cpu. Do I need to seat it in a better position or something?

I just don't understand why by just changing the processor and leaving everything stock settings, my temps raised 10-20*C. It's so wierd.

Did you check in the bios to make sure the voltage is set properly? Maybe it's still high from when you were overclocking your old chip. Another possability is that the temp sensor could be bad. In that case feel the base of the heatsink while it's running. Warm = 40C, hot = 50C, and burning = 60, roughly.

Wow, so you hit 2.8 on the 3800.

What is your vcore, memory voltage, cpu clocks, and memory clocks set at?

Yep, it's my suicide. I run 2.6Ghz 24/7, but I bet I could run 2.7Ghz stable if I tried. See my CPU-Z link, it should have all that information in there. Vcore is 1.525v, but my PSU is a little too weak for my motherboard. I'll post back when I get my new one.

Go for the 2.7!! i've got mine doing 2.8Ghz 24/7. have done a suicide 3Ghz. tryin to get stable at 2.9Ghz but i think my Ram is holding me back. need faster ram. maybe some Corsair twinx Pros.

LMAO your HTT is 300Mhz! Lol up the multi to 3x and you'll be set. What is your divider at?

Drop your memory command rate from 1T to 2T. I don't know of anyone with that high of clock being able to run at 1T.

That's my advice.
