Core 2 Duo E8400 3GHz. Is getting too hot to handle :| - Page 3

I havn't started with that I just tested all the three softwares that you recommended and have posted the results. They all show the same temps.

Yeah, that cooler is definitely not mounted correctly. Make sure you got the proper amount of TIM applied (in other words just a small dot in the center of the CPU), and make sure its CLEAN before you put it on there. Then ensure you have all 4 clips put on properly.

You should not be running that hot at stock with the stock cooler, period.

Also, your first and foremost "bottleneck" is your PSU situation. Replace those two garbage units with one of higher quality, and I'll bet your overall stability will go up 10 fold. Even just a simple Corsair CX430 (at USD $30) is enough for your rig, and its a good quality unit. You only need a good quality 400w unit......so long as its quality.

Well since you have the case open I figured it would have been done first. But if all the software reads the same you are most likely looking at a hardware issue, bad sensors or heatsink. If the chip is really that hot and the cooler is correctly mounted that cooler you practically burn you so be careful of that and fans.

My buddy's core 2 started being sluggish during some intensive flash games one day, turned out one of the flimsy clips on the stock cooler had finally become brittle and snapped... several weeks before hand. chip always ran great even with out a cpu cooler mounted to it. biggrin.gif

Yup tried that too, it works smile.gif E8400 was one of the best chips ever. I hope the i7 chip I choose is this great.

The clips seem to be the problem. They aren't broken or anything and they are also attached properly but when I apply pressure on the fan towards the chip the temperature starts dropping. I can get the pins but I think I will go with the Cooler Master processor heatsink and fan that was suggested. Will also try my hands on overclocking with that biggrin.gif

Thanks everyone for your help really appreciate it.

Again, you really should be careful, and I wouldn't overclock a thing till you get this taken care of.....

You're just asking for a fire or other form of failure with such a setup like that. A setup like that can and WILL take out anything and everything connected to those 2 units.

They aren't clipped properly then. You have to turn them some way when you re mount the cooler and I believe they make a click when they are in all the way. It's been awhile since I've used one for this very reason.

Using 2 units is very common actually, you just should know which connections to combine and thats it.
I have been using these two SMPS for over 2 years. The only inconvenience is having one power cable run through the front of the pc.

I know how they are clipped but it seems like something made them like loose :|
Well I decided to use 4 nuts and bolts and bolted the heat sink on the CPU tongue.gif
It has brought the temps down to 60 degrees on idle and 90 on 100% load smile.gif.

What makes you say that? Running 2 PSU's is just fine.

I would go ahead with the purchase of the 212 EVO and do a good clean of the cpu and proper mount. This should make a huge difference.
