[SOLVED] i7 4770k not OCd at 100 degrees celsius?!

post #1 of 68
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I just got a new CPU, I havent even OC'd yet and its giving me 100 degrees Celcius ! :O

http://abload.de/image.php?img=100cqms2h.png

This happens when I play BF3 multiplayer and when I render, both CPU intensive. Box cooler fan goes berserk, spinning so fast I can hear it whining through the case and my headphones and ingame sound.

Is this a reason to RMA? Or could it be the thermal paste? I remember, when I attached the boxed cooler I had to fumble around a bit and pressed and removed it several times onto the CPU.

I was hoping to overclock it to 4.4GHz ! :/

Any advice / help much appreciated! smile.gif


EDIT: Solved: CPU was a bit of a hot head, also it's Haswell. And the boxed cooler is simply not good enough. I am using a Macho HR-02 now and am in the process of RMAing the old CPU.
The new CPU is 5C-10C cooler

That sounds like an improperly installed Heat Sink, no doubt. If you are certain that your cpu's actual fan is functional, I would check the mountings and if that fails reapply thermal paste.

My gut instinct is that the cooler isn't placed correctly.

Kk, well I bought a new cooler, I might as well go ahead and install that one, do I just scratch of the old paste with a toothpick or something? nerdsmiley.png

btw I installed HW Monitor and it reports the same high temperatures

If you got it, use isopropyl on a piece of cloth/paper to wipe it completely clean.

Razor blade might be decent to remove most of the old thermal paste, then complete with isopropil alcohol, as already suggested.

Honestly, the stock cooler seems to be unable to wick-out all the heat while stress-testing an Haswell CPU.

all in all, if you bought Haswell, you WANT a decent aftermarket cooler and some good thermal paste....also, you want to make sure you installed it perfect.

IMHO, I bought the 4770K and wanted to overclock..I read the reviews, they mentioned HEAT, then I bought a 100$ H100i cooler....just saying....

I recommend Coolermaster 212 EVO or Noctua NH-u12P (or whatever equivalent) as known as great heatsinks...EVO being cheaper, if ou never OC...
,
The best for Haswell are Noctua NH-D14 or Phantecks 14-something, or self-contained water cooling like the H100i, the CM Seidon 240, the Kraken X60 or the thermaltake extreme 2.0....

You don't have to go out and buy anything special. Just wipe it roughly off with toilet paper, then maybe finish it with a cloth. Make it look like new at the end and make sure no dust is anywhere when you install your new stuff.

To remove thermal paste just take a piece of toilet paper and some isopropil alcohol (I substitute this will nail polish remover) and wipe the paste off.

 

When re-applying a CPU cooler :

 

use a drop of thermal paste (I recommend Arctic Silver 5) the size of a GRAIN OF RICE (Less always = better).

Place said amount in the center of the CPU

Put the cooler on firmly. You DO NOT want it to slide around. apply even pressure.

Screw it on like you would a car tire so the pressure stays even.
