E4400 overheating

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,
after a month and something i decided to overclock my new PC. I saw some articles that said e4400 should reach 3GHz without any problem. Now i am running my CPU at 2760MHz, and its way too hot. After to minutes of high load it reaches 60 C, temp. at low load is 39 C. I am using TAT. I am vandering if there is any chance for me to OC it even more or is this as far as i can push it.
My system:
-ASUS P5W HD deluxe
_Intel E4400 @2754MHz, CPU freq. 308MHz
Geil ultra @ 918MHz
procesor is cooled with stock cooler.
Thanks

You should really upgrade to an aftermarket heatsink and fan if you want to push 3GHz. If you can't afford it, apply AS5 to your current heatsink (after using isopropyl alcohol to remove the stock stuff) to reduce temps a bit. Also, what vcore are you running through the cpu? Is it a stable oc?

Read this thread: http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...about-tat.html

TAT may not be accurate for C2Ds. Do you get the same reading with Speedfan?

Readings in TAT are 2C higher.
I havent change Vcore.

OK, this is strange. I set all the freq. on default, and run orthos to stres CPU. Speedfan temp. doesnt move from 43C while temp in TAT still exceedes 61C. IMHO 43C is high for low load on CPU, but should raise when stressed, but temp shouldnt exceed 61C on stock setings. Help needed!

Dude, calm down. Your fine. TAT does not read correctly for c2d, especially teh e4400. Don't even use it. Most people are pretty sure now, that the 61.4c thermal specification is for the CPU average temperatures, or the CPU temps on speedfan, coretemp, and your mobo monitoring. Just make sure that doesn't go above 61.4c, I'd try to stay under 55c.

As for the Core 1/0 temps, don't worry about them.

But then again I could be wrong, and so could everyone esle.

If you want to know more, read these two threads:
