amd phenom x6 1055T extremely high temperature

post #1 of 79
Thread Starter 
Hello, I have a AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Six Core, 2,8GHZ/3,3GHz Turbo AM3, 9MB, 125W, Boxed
on a ASUS M4A89TD PRO, Socket-AM3 AMD 890FX+SB850 motherboard.


It runs at extremely high temperatures, at idle its around 45-47 C, and when I stress test it, it doesnt seem to stop increasing in temperature.
With prime95 it increased to 75 C in no time, before I shut it off to prevent damage.

The CPU is not OC any more than the turbo thing does itself. I was planning on buying a cooler. But when its so high on stock Im afraid a cooler won't cool enough to get any much higher GHz.

Is there something wrong with my CPU?. Fans ran at 4200 RPM when the temperature was 75C

Download Cpuz or HwMonitor, tell us your voltages. ASUS boards sometimes overvolt the chip to extremes.

Example: If I leave my AI Tuner to Auto it instantly sets 1.35 on the CPU/NB when stock is 1.1.

Stock values:
CPU Vcore: 1.25
CPU NB: 1.1

Also what is your case airflow like? You need at least 1 intake and 1 exhaust.

Post pictures if you can so we can see what the setup is like smile.gif

I suspect the heat sink isn't making proper contact with the chip. Did you forget thermal grease, or to peel a plastic cover, or ???

Does the heat sink also get hot?

Thank you for your answers.

I only had the thermal paste that was already on when I built the computer.

The Case has 3 fans so I think thats enough.

I found someone with thermal paste, so I opened up the CPU and removed the dust in addition to add new paste. Now the CPU seem to be alot cooler. It idles at 8-9 C lower than it did before, and it reached 59C on stress test for 11 mins. In the last 5 or so mins the temperature increased by 2 C..

Before this the CPU became 75C in less than 1 minute.

Is there room for overclocking with my stock cooler, or is it waste of time to do that before I buy cooler?

And do you know if I can reach 3,8-4. GHz with a ASUS M4A89TD PRO, Socket-AM3 AMD 890FX+SB850 motherboard? Ive heard its some problems with limited VRam that prevents me from overclocking too much.

3 fans? Where are they located and what models are they?

CFM is an important factor in airflow.

Also, is that screenshot load temperatures?

The heat coming off your graphics card is probably warming it up also, I would consider an aftermarket cooler, stock cooler will get you nowhere.

There are some pretty cheap cooler you could purchase that would do a big difference in temperatures, then you can really start the fun of overclocking thumb.gif

If you need advise on what cooler we're all happy to help smile.gif

That motherboard is completely fine in terms of overclocking, basically my M5A97 PRO. From using the 1045T on that board I can say it is able to reach 5Ghz as long as you have that lucky chip smile.gif

Sounds like the dust was a big issue, probably clogging the HS fins. Your temps are better now, but they're still on the high end of the scale.

Can you post a pic of your case, with the side removed? I wanna see where the fans are located and which way they are blowing.

Try running a stress with the side panel removed, and report the resultant temp.

Yeah, that screenshot is load temperatures. Temperatures during stress test.

M5, isn't that a newer motherboard than mine?

The fans are those which came with my case, CM Storm Scout Midi Tower Black. Don't know much more.

I'm thinking of buying a cooler, cheap one like hyper 212+ or invest in water cooling. Tips would be great

I've been told that I need to get at least 4GHz clock speed to prevent my CPU from bottlenecking 7970 if I buy that, so its important that the cooler is good enough. Buying new CPU would mean that I have to buy a new motherboard because of the difference in socket size.

I will post a pic of my case as soon as I can. I have one fan on the top, one in front and one at the back off my case.

Actually your M4A89TD PRO is better than mine. The 990FX chipset (newest) is basically a rebadged 890FX chipset.

Your boards chipset is probably more capable than mine. Mine is just an FX ready board.

Your board has 6+2 phases like mine, and are very good quality. You probably have Digi+vrm (load line), that boards capable of running 5.2 Gt/s (2600mhz HT). Not only that but your processor is clocked higher than mine (yours has 14x multi?) meaning its much easier to hit 4Ghz, you only need to raise the HTT/FSB to 285 which that board should do pretty fine. Not only that but you may find you need less voltage if you have a lucky chip tongue.gif

The Storm Scout is a good case, probably CMs own fans which are actually decent. Yeah a good cooler and some good thermal paste should do the job.

The Hyper 212 EVO is a good choice, I have a Thors Hammer and at the moment no thermal paste (waiting for new cooler) and this chip hits 57c on load, thats at 4Ghz (297 FSB). The hyper evo is better than my cooler so is the hyper 212 +.

If you want to go water cooling you can, if you are going to be using it for other chips, because you will be limited on this chip because its not unlocked.

Hyper 212 EVO
Thermalright true Spirit 120/140
Scythe Mine 2
CNPS10X Extreme

All good coolers, Thubans like cool air, they get shaky and unstable after 50c.

Also I doubt it would bottleneck it, check it, run a game and note the percentage of the GPU in use. Anything will do, I use MSI AfterBurner to check smile.gif if its low you know its being bottlenecked. But to be honest it shouldn't. Thubans aren't the best for gaming I have to admit, Deneb does much better and unfortunately the new Vishera chips do a lot better.

I moved from FX to Thuban. Even if you clock it to about 3.6Ghz you'll see a noticeable difference. These chips are very good performers.

That thing will get hotter because its 125W TDP, so good cooling is essential for these to overclock good smile.gif fun to OC though

What do you mean by that the chip is not unlocked?

Will I be able to use same water cooler on newer CPU's too, and will it make a big difference?

m4a89td pro is a fine motherboard..you could get 6 ghz out of it.
yes..all amd coolers are compatible..
