i7 930 Stock Load temps 68-71 with Zalman 9900MAX. Help?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I bought the system in my sig for DIRT cheap from a friend, and have been looking to overclock it.

I've been running p95 for about 30 minutes and the temps are about 68-71c on all cores with this Zalman 9900MAX heatsink.

I'm thinking that these load temps are a bit high for stock speeds, and that something is up with either my case cooling (doubtful with a stock Phantom), the way the thermal compound was applied before, or I just have a crap chip.

I'm thinking it was just a bad application. Or are these actually good temps? I haven't OC'd an intel chip before, last I had was AMD.

Can anyone give me some insight into what might be going on here? Thanks! - Jessekin32

What TIM have you used and what was the method? I doubt you have applied it correctly, temps shouldn't be so high.

I'm not actually the one who applied it. it was my friend. I'm assuming he used whatever came with the Zalman heatsink.

I'll probably reapply the heatsink tomorrow afternoon and see what happens. (Hopefully I can find my Arctic Silver 5)
