Intel stock cooler problem - Page 3

post #21 of 29
Thread Starter 
Update.

I reduced the voltage of my processor to 1.15 Vcore, which dropped it to 1.08 volts. It's now running under 75 degrees for almost an hour on P95, and appears to be stable so far; I'll obviously have to test the stability for a while longer, but it seems good to go at the moment.

It passed 12 hours of P95 at 1.08V; thanks everyone.

So appears the problem was new mobo pushing more voltage to CPU?

I'd assume that something happened between the TIM and the CPU as well; it dropped at least 5 degrees, while the ambient temperature increased, after I just left it for 12 hours.

Whatever the problem was, it's fixed now.

That 5c sounds like air bubble/s in TIM between CPU and heatsink getting out... And/or a TIM seating kind of thing..

I just put a blob of TIM and seated the cooler; though, with the difficulty of seating the cooler, I can imagine air bubbles getting in. Why did Intel ever decide that these push pins were better than screws?

Sometimes I have wife play statue and hold cooler very still while I tighten mounts. She's sometimes cold enough to be a real statue. tongue.gif
