Oh, it's good to have C1E enabled.  Although, there's also nothing really wrong with disabling it either.  In the old days when Intel's "Core2" series was the hottest thing, we preferred disabling C1E for overclocking, but that's not necessary with these CPUs.

 

So, since your temps went up that high, I have another question:  is the heatsink installed very securely?  Like, does it feel loose, even a tiny bit?  Or, does it feel solid as though it's welded to the motherboard?  It should be extremely solid and immovable.  If it feels loose at all to any degree, then that would be the culprit for the high temps.

When I installed the cooler it was attached like cement, but I've never actually tested to see what the hold was to the CPU. But if it was installed incorrectly, wouldn't my idle temps shoot up in the 90's too? Under load it's usually 50.

No, but good point.  I think the idle temps would be hovering in the 40s or low 50s.

Do you mean when it's not overclocked?

Yep, when it's not overclocked and on default settings.

What does CPU-Z say the voltage is when it's at stock with Prime95 running?

 

Also, check the temps again at this point just to be sure.

I have an AsRock Z77 pro 3 board. Setting I am using are.

Cpu Ratio= per core ( each core set to 40)
Speed step= off
Turbo boost= off
Internal PLL over volt= off
GT over clock= on
GT over clock frequency= 1150
GT over clock volt= +0.05v
power save= off
CPU offset= -0.020v
CPU LLC= 100%

BIOS version P1.50 (07/13/2012)

Here are the temps/voltages after running for 15 minutes.


-I have no idea why it's at x 36.0 I never made a voltage change.
post #19 of 37

That's turbo mode.  :)  I know, it's not a big boost, but mine doesn't give me a big boost either when it's at stock while running Prime95.  I think the highest I saw was about 3.6 GHz too.  lol

 

Anyway, these temps are extremely high for only 1.080V.  Something isn't right somewhere, either with the software, with the CPU, with the heatsink, or, I don't know what.

Oh damn. I'll try to re-seat the heatsink tomorrow since it's almost 12 here. I really appreciate the help though, thank you smile.gif.

I'll keep you updated when I re-seat everything.
