Rendering video and hitting 93C-96C average

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is this OK if I do this for an hour and a half? I tried running stock, redoing thermal paste and remounting heatsink. It's not helping. Should this CPU be RMA'd? This is in like 27C ambient with a lot of case fans. Edit: uh oh I'm hitting 100C now.

I don't understand why this CPU runs so hot.

Realtemp is accurate right? I'm using Sony Vegas to render.

Looks like realtemp had a tjmax set to 105°C which should of been 100°C.

I use RealTemp + hwmonitor. RealTemp is exceptionally accurate. Sorry but you didn't mention what type of heatsink you're using with your processor, I wouldn't RMA the processor instead you might want to find walkarounds to get your issue solved.

I would start with the windows power options because having the system running at high performance all the time means the CPU will run at maximum voltage + frequency most if not all the time.

Secondly I would run your CPU at default settings or even downvolt it since you're really reaching the high 90s under load.

if you're using a custom cooler and yet getting those high temps I would recommend trying another cooler however if you're using the stock cooler, you would expect the cpu to reach 85 - 95 under extreme cpu loads.

I hope this helps. Good luck thumb.gif

CPU Cooler is: Noctua NH-D14, default settings use a CPU Voltage of 1.296v max while my overclock uses 1.308v max.

Also running balanced power plan, power saving settings are working as usual. with C1E / C6 / C7 / EIST enabled.

How much will the temperatures drop with hyperthreading disabled?
Could I blame the Corsair Vengeance C70 case having two hard drive cages that are populated with 2 SSD's and 2 HDD's?

I get a idle temperature of around 34°C, it's summer here atm, almost autumn now. Thanks for your input.

Temperature drop will differ from one case to the next ofcourse however since you have yourself a very, very nice air cooler, your processor should NOT be getting those temperatures that you have mentioned in the first post. I would re-mount the entire cooler along with its base / support. there has to be something wrong in there.

reaching 100c on default clocks + the NH-D14 is really not normal at all... I would reply thermal paste again and I would also check for the thermal paste spread to verify that the cooler and CPU contact is good.

I wouldn't blame the case right away for having drive bays however I would at least make sure that there is an acceptable amount of airflow in the case. Luke over at "LinusTechTips" have posted a very recent video regarding poor/good case airflow, drive bays, and much more useful information about the subject, I am currently using work computer and wont be able to access youtube to send you a link.

I hope this helps. Good luck

I have already remounted and re-TIM'd multiple times for the NH-D14. I ended up moving onto Cyberlink Power director, for some reason it's rendering my video alot faster and is only getting my cpu to 85C without putting full load on it.

What on earth, my computer decided to restart without BSOD (didn't shut off). Is my overclock unstable?

Edit: I think I've fixed it for now, disabled turbo boost and changed K OC back to auto instead of enabled. Also set memory fast boot to normal.
