What's going on with my i5 2500k?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
My Temps using Speedfan and Real Temps, on OC setting for 4.0 ghz with 1600mhz ram. *Note have side panel open with only top and front 200m, no rear or bottom as of yet.

My major problem is on load my cpu temps were nearing 69-70... and my voltage for CPU is set at 1.6 voltz, I have read that is it unsafe for the voltages to be that high? I have a Asrock p67 Extreme 4 Gen 3 motherboard. Also anothing thing that is weird is that my BIOS states my CPU temps at much higher than speedfan of Real temps show them as.

1.6 volts is TOO HIGH!

Try 1.45 and see if its stable, then you can lower to 1.375~1.35v or closest lower voltage.

WOW! 1.6V! Turn that VOLTAGE DOWN!
post #4 of 32
Voltage is way too high. Shouldn't need more than 1.35v to get to 4ghz.

Yes, 1.6 IS WAY TOO HIGH, 1.35 to 1.4 is considered the high end of safe for most cooling setups. Back off that voltage or you risk damage or degradation to that sexy CPU tongue.gif

Edit: Most modern cases are set up to intake in the front and exhaust in the back (or some variation), creating a sort of wind tunnel effect that brings fresh air to the CPU and also cools some of the heat sinks on your motherboard. You may want to try running with the side panel on if you have adequate airflow.

Yes, that voltage is too high for that clock. And yes, your BIOS shows higher temps than SpeedFan and RealTemp because, while in BIOS, power saving features are off, these are turned on once you load the OS, that's why you get lower temps in Windows.

Don't use auto OC (if that's what you did). 1.6 V is too HIGH.

Same picture as above at idle clock speed? Did you change the voltage?

What cooler are you using?

What kind of cooling are you using? Is it the stock heat sink? Make sure the fans are spinning on it. You may also have to reapply your heatsink with fresh thermal paste.

Have you changed anything in your system lately? I'm worried about those temps, make sure you go into the bios and turn down that voltage!

Edit: Cpu Z is showing a lower voltage because it drops as a power saving feature when the cpu is not under stress but it will still go way too high under load unless you change it!
