Too hot

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
I watched a youtube video and followed settings for my cpu. Multiplier x 20 and clk 200. Mine overheats. I can only get it stable at clk 155. Also when I change clk the RAM speed goes up too. Does anything else change? I think it's overheating because I'm waiting on thermal compound to be delivered. Would it affect the heat that much? Can you put thermal compound on the heatsink and the CPU? Can you put too much or too little on? Also how can i check for the best voltage for each setting? Is there a program? Can I leave them on auto? Very new to this. Help would be much appreciated.rolleyes.gif

Few things:

-Fill out your system specifications in your profile
-Don't use a system without thermal compound
-Uncooked rice sized spot of compound on the cpu before applying the heatsink is good enough
-Manually set the voltage, leaving it on auto will make the motherboard use more than necessary to keep the CPU stable

Fill out system specifications in Forum Signature or somewhere else? I completed the my rig section. Also to manually set the voltage how do you know when it's good or not for each setting? Thankyou That Guy

You have to make sure that you get Thermal paste in between the grooves of the copper pipes on the cooler its self.You should also be using a pea sized drop on CPU also.thumb.gif

The only voltage you should need to set is the CPU's voltage. Lower your voltage until it no longer boots into Windows. Then increase until it's stable enough to get Prime95, a system stressing program, started.

There is a thread for the 1156 cpu here. Just give it a read and get familiar with your board, cpu and ram. As everyone's hardware will perform different and you have to find your limits of yours. But this will give you a basic stepping stone to get started. You can apply the thermal past and then remove the heat sink. Then you can determine if you used enough, not enough or just the right amount. Too much will cause more heat and too little will also cause heat build up. Need anymore help post away. Thanks

That's not an overclocking board..and the tx3 is one of the worst coolers I've ever had..
Here's a link to a good cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835214023&nm_mc=OTC-Froogle&cm_mmc=OTC-Froogle-_-CPU+Cooling-_-Enermax-_-35214023
and a good 1156 board for $75

1.4v max for cpu
1.3 max for vtt
Set the voltages manually and do NOT enable LLC on that platform wink.gif

I still have that tx3 around here somewhere..butchered :lachen.gif:

I am not looking to upgrade at this stage. Just looking to go to around 4.0 to 4.2 ghz. That is possible with my current MOBO and fan isn't it?

You said that you guess its over 100C, did you have any temp monitoring running- or is that literally a guess? If you are adjusting settings and working to OC your computer, download a temp monitor. YOull really be able to keep an eye on your temps easily with it in your system tray. Itll come in handy if you start stress testing as well. Coretemp, Realtemp, both work very well. What Im getting at is that without knowing what temp you were at, you dont really know that temp is what caused your PC to shutdown- its just a guess. You could literally guess that it was anything, that doesnt mean thats what caused the crash. See what you come up with after manually setting your voltages, and watch your temps.

4.0/4.2 is quite an overclock on your CPU though. Even if you had to settle at 3.5, thats still quite an increase over stock. I think temp is going to be your biggest issue. On my i7 920, I couldnt get to 4ghz with my Freezer 7 Pro, temps were just getting out of hand before making it there. Even with this H60, Im getting 71C (hyperthreading off) at 4ghz. Youve got to keep in mind you are taking a 2.66ghz CPU and trying to run it at 4ghz, thats a pretty massive OC. Temps will be quite a bit higher.
