ummm, I can't recall, but if I am not mistaken, they were around 70 on max.

do you think opening the case panel will benefit here ??

now after setting the voltage in BIOS to (+0.149) it's in Windows with Prime95 running, it stabilized to 1.192 then to 1.184.

so far, all workers in Prime95 are running, and the max temp is 82c, is this still safe as being far from 99c which is the TJ Max ??

it seems like I need to up the voltage even more, since I have just got an error with Worker six again.

do I need to lower or increase the VTT voltage too ??

do you think there are any relations with the errors I am getting and the VTT voltage value or those errors relate to the Vcore ??

Umm, around 70C at stock is really high. With an aftermarket cooler you shouldn't be over 55C or so stock. You may need to look into that before OC'ing.

The Intel recommended specs list the max temp as 72.3C or something like that. I like to keep it under 75C for 24/7 use. Stress testing I don't mind if it gets up into the 80's briefly using IBT, but I don't like to see prime95 getting into the 80's.

I'd stop right now, put it back to stock, and fix your temp issues.

uffff.. this is what I think I am going to do, and I don't think that I will try to overclock later.... unfortunately, I can't fix the temp issue, since I couldn't have better than this cooler, which I already knew it wasn't that high-end one, but I hopped it help a bit.. eh... anyway, it looks nice in the case...


hehehehehehe.


thanks for everything my dear.

I was messing around with my 860 last night and never went above 60C with the stock cooler. You might have installed the aftermarket one incorrectly. I would suggest removing and re-seating.

^This. It's not installed right. You shouldn't be seeing anywhere near 70C w/ an aftermarket cooler.

Well I'm not familiar with that particular HSF, but I'd start by taking it off and seeing how your TIM spread after it was installed, maybe you used too much, too little, or not enough pressure was made when you installed the HSF. It's hard to say what the issue is without seeing it.

when I installed the cooler, I only applied a small pea-shaped amount of TIM, and then put the cooler accordingly and firmly fixed the screws.

LOL... it seems like I have committed some mistake installing the fan ??

when I removed the stock HSF, I also removed the little square-shaped iron that has a hand to be fastened under a small hook to press the CPU, and just depended on the pressure supposed to be caused by the new fan after fastening the new cooler to firmly fit with the CPU, did I do a mistake ?? should I return it and then install the cooler over it ?
