2500k Idle at 60c, I am quite worried? [solved] - Page 3

post #21 of 69
By intel boost, you mean the overclock you did with the software from msi?

no no, intel turbo boost. other than lowering the vcore i haven't touched anything, I haven't tried to overclock yet, i'm using what's default.

First thing - Use Motherboard software to check temps. I used to use HWmonitor and it told me my CPU was so much hotter than it actually was!

*Is the CPU clocking down and undervolting when idle?

*Though all chips are different I would say that voltage looks a bit high for that overclock so you might want to set it up manually through the BIOS. I would imagine somewhere around 1.3v would be good but you'll have to do things properly with patience and stress testing. Some great overclocking guides on here. I used this one to overclock my CPU: http://www.overclock.net/t/968053/official-the-sandy-stable-club-guides-voltages-temps-bios-templates-inc-spreadsheet/2240#post_14466483 Also, avoid using software for overclocking as it often causes trouble!

*Also make sure you have a good airflow through the case. Take the sides off the case and leave it idle for 5 minutes. How are the temps? My CPU idles at around 20c and hits 58c Max on a 12 hour blend test with Prime95 just for reference.

* Good luck thumb.gif

Not familiar with any of that software, i'd uninstall it and reset your cmos, you can always install it again, imo the stock cooler simply cannot handle that OC, perhaps a combination of that and to much paste or something, if you can get back to stock it will be easier to find out.

and you said the bios options are greyed out? not familiar with your bios and can't seem to find any pics but I'd assume there is an option called something like "manual overclocking" that you can enable and it will allow the greyed out options? That's usualy the case..

Go into the bios and check your temps there for us please wackydude

That is extremely odd to say the least.

I would check the airflow in/around your case.

You need to learn how to set your voltage and clocks using bios, especially since your using the stock cooler. This will help greatly with being able to control you temperatures. Do some reading around the forum and if your unsure keep asking questions.

Side note, to whoever said to use the motherboard software to measure temps, you are so very wrong. HWMonitor says it's hotter BECAUSE IT IS. Please don't spread misinformation

I imagine you'd find it here (http://uk.msi.com/product/mb/P67A-GD53--B3-.html#/?div=Overview) somewhere? Make sure to choose the right OS type before you download thumb.gif

Also this is a great thread which I often refer to: http://www.overclock.net/t/968053/official-the-sandy-stable-club-guides-voltages-temps-bios-templates-inc-spreadsheet
