RMA my 3570k?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
So I'm pretty much tired of troubleshooting this issue I've been having for two weeks. For whatever reason, I started getting 90C+ temps on my 3570k when I decided to open it up for some more stress testing. Updated BIOS, reseated a couple of times, bought a new motherboard, and still I get this issue.



Why is it at 50C at IDLE and STOCK voltage!? If I have swapped mobo's and I'm getting the same issue can I assume it is the CPU itself?

So I'll just do a quick recap of what happened:

Was on my Extreme4 and used Real Temp to monitor temps for Arma 3. I see temps get up to 90C so I quickly turn off and proceed to reapply thermal paste. Did it 3 times with NT-H1, cleaned with 91% alcohol, secured correctly with NH-D14 and then EVO 212 and got same thing. Went to MicroCenter and got a UD5H. Tried setting to x45, and within seconds got up to 94C. Thing is BIOS shows me I'm idling at 29C.

Near the beginning of May I had absolutely zero issues. Temps were 76C max on IBT max at x45 on my ASRock. What could have possibly gone wrong?

  • Did you try other monitoring programs?
  • Have you touched your cooler when it reaches high temperature? Is it Hot?


I've rarely seen all four cores the same temperatures and same max temperatures but if you answered yes to the previous questions and you are saying that the temperatures were fine previously, I would highly consider RMAing the chip. Maybe stuck sensors but I would think the chip has something wrong for sure.

I have 2 x 3570k, I swapped mobo and they maintained their temps in different rigs.

However, after reseating and removing coolers and looking at the pattern of the thermal paste, I think that the contact patch is pretty uneven on the THS. Perhaps your backplate is worn, or not applying even load?

Thanks for replying guys as I was really just about to give up.

I have tried OHM and Core Temp with the same result. And for me touching the pipes, they are warm but not 95C warm. It is making good contact because if it didn't it would be cool to the touch, right? And if it was actually running at 94C and I touched it I'd probably burn my finger?

I've never had to deal with Intel RMA before so hopefully it goes well. My main two worries is that first I will get rejected for some reason. I've read enough motherboard horror stories that just seeing RMA scares me. And two is getting a bad chip. The one I have now did 1.2v for 4.5 which is pretty good, so let's hope the next one does the same (though overclocking is the least of my worries ATM.)

Will keep you guys updated.

If there's nothing else wrong with it and it clocks so well, I would just keep it. You know as well as I do that with luck being what it is, your replacement chip won't clock as well and you'll probably regret not just putting up with the inaccurate temp readings haha. Who knows, it may sort itself out. You may also figure out what's wrong in the coming days.

Whats your ambient temp?

About 26C. Definitely feel it a lot hotter in my room but I got my intake Noctuas at 1200 RPM to keep everything cool. GPU idles at 30C and max gets to about 55-60C.

And I know rockgod, but honestly rather have a chip that can do at least 4.2 and having no other issues than have the one I currently have. I've been unlucky ever since I build this computer, but maybe if I do RMA it I'll just get lucky this one time. tongue.gif

Honestly though I think it is a pretty big deal. If one day my temps are actually that high but I think it's just the bug, then I'd be in trouble. Don't know if it would degrade over time, but I don't even feel like playing games just because I think if I start up a game it'll get to a high temp without me knowing and cause even more issues.

Try 4.2ghz and 1.1v and increase from there. You could always delid biggrin.gif

Another option could be to purchase an actual thermometer. Perhaps something like this:

http://www.xoxide.com/xspc-lcd-temperature-sensor-blue-v2.html

Most likely would receive that quicker than sending out your CPU, waiting for them to complete the RMA, then having them send it back and go without a CPU in that rig for however long it takes.

I've been needing to get one of those. I'm assuming there isn't one in a local store like Home Depot?
