i7 930 @ 3.82GHz temps are wack. Help?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm looking at both my Mobo's LED display, and RealTemp to see my CPU's temps at idle.

It's clocked at 3.82 GHz, which isn't too intense when coupled with an h50.

CPU: Intel i7 @ 3.82GHz w/ Corsair H50 191x20 for 3.82 @ 1.2875 vC
Motherboard: EVGA x58 SLI LE


RealTemp @ Idle: 48c
Mobo's LED Temp Display @ Idle: 33c

RealTemp @ Load: 88-90c
Mobo's LED Temp Display @ Load:74-75c


Any ideas? And which should I trust more?
The H50 does feel to be kicking out a good amount of hot air, so I'm a little worried. I know this chip shouldn't be running this hot

Thanks everyone, let me know what you think. - Jessekin32

Edit*: and yes my CPU is seated properly. I've resat it 3 times now. frown.gif Decent Pea sized drop of Antec TIM (I know not the best) Unspreaded. The CPU sitting does a good enough of a job at spreading the tim IMO. And even if this isn't the best way of applying, the temps should NOT be that high with RealTemp.

Edit 2: It's a D0 chip. And I was also wrong about my voltage. It was at 1.2875 vC. It's now at 1.29. (voltage set in bios. On a load, CPUz says 1.317 - 1.329) It IS 3.8Ghz as of 191x20. This was corrected above.

That voltage seems much higher than it should be.

 

If you don't need it turning HT off had might not be a bad idea either.

 

Edit:

Oh man, I didn't see your GPU. Not sure what to say about HT now.

 

Quick question...

Which revision is your chip?

isn't 191x21 about 4ghz?
am i missing something?
anyways, i wouldn't push anymore.
90c at max load is really high but as long as it doesnt exceed 75c during real usage
i would say you are fine. i always go with the highest temp registered just to be on the safe side.
btw what revision is your chip like ryleh was asking?

Wonder where the chips was made. Is it Costa Rica?

Sorry about that, I was tweaking with the multiplier and core speed a while ago and messed the numbers up in my head xD
It's 191x20 as confirmed by CPUz.

Also, it's a D0 chip. And I was also wrong about my voltage. It was at 1.2875 vC. It's now at 1.29. (voltage set in bios. On a load, CPUz says 1.317 - 1.329)

I just got back from work, and when I logged on, my chip was much cooler, but has gone up since typing this.

RealT says 84-85 now, but said about 64ish when logging in
and my mobo said about 54c when logging in. But my mobo says the temp is now 70c.
I've been running prime since posting starting this thread (almost 8 hours.), so I don't know why the temp would drop so much just from waking the computer up.


I have no idea what's going on biggrin.gif

Editss: Grammer and settings corrected.

For me, I always trust my program to tell me the temp, so if Everest and Realtemp match up, then I know which temp I'm getting.

Now yes, if you have HT on, you can turn it off to get better temps on load and to be honest, even with a "CPU-heavy" program, the HT on Bloomfields aren't too great so it won't make a huge difference. Maybe a 3 ~ 5 min difference when rendering using Adobe Suite.

What I would recommend you do is, activate your power-saving features when you're "100%" sure your OC is stable. This is so you don't get BSODs on power-saving. This will lower you idle temps, but will do little to none on your load.

The next thing you could do is buy a better cooler, but if that is not possible, either get better thermal paste, change it from 191x20 to 181x21 because 21x multi usually gets you stable at a lower vcore, and the next is probably your last resort, is lower your OC.

I have mine @4.4 w/ HT on and it's @1.392vcore. It gets to 85C with IBT and with regular load, goes to around 70C. So I'm good. As long as your "IBT temp/Prime temp" is below 90C and your "regular" load is around 75C, then you're fine. I like to keep mine around 70C or below, or I start getting anxious and everytime I get a BSOD after that, I tell myself "Damn I damaged my CPU" even though I know that I didn't. OCD aint good.
