e4300 running HOT!!! - Page 2

post #11 of 16
What are your temperatures now with orthos? I checked out the case on Newegg, it looks like the 120mm intake in the front has a hard time pulling air in through that mesh. I'd try either removing that mesh or try running the system out of the case to see if it helps.

I feel the air pulling through the mesh, though I can't comment on whether it is enough or not. Don't really doing any case 'mods' atm unless everything else fails. I have run the system with the case doors open and a large fan blowing towards the inside with little effect. Going to attempt the undervolt. Will be back soon.

Again, thanks for the quick help everyone

first undervolt taken to 1.20000. orthos running the stressGPU gromacs core or whatever brings temps in speedfan from 49-55c and in Core Temp .95 to 65c on both cores. Honestly I'm not sure which program is giving me honest temps.

What Orthos test gives best results when stress testing CPU?
What temp reading should I really be looking at and in which program?

Going to undervolt again.

Don't undervolt too much. Even if you are able to boot, it doesn't mean you are stable.

If SpeedFan says 49-55C and minus 15C from Coretemp 65C = 50C, I think SpeedFan is correct.

I prefer to use Stress CPU with Gromics. Some users have passed memtest for RAM, but failed RAM test on Orthos for some strange reason.

running stable so far undervolting @ 1.20000 at 9x300 (2.7). Getting same temps as I was at stock clock at stock voltage. So long as it's stable, I'm a happy camper. Haven't done an Orthos test at lenght however. Will run one as I sleep tonight. Thanks to everyone who has helped me with this. I did in fact have an issue with comp not posting when I was too aggressive with my timings and undervoltages, but as was suggested to me, resetting cmos did the trick.

Good thing I told you about resetting the CMOS.

It's good to hear that you came back with positive results. You undervolt and overclocked, how much better can that get?

Just remember, try to stay below 55-60C Orthos load and you'll do fine.

Well, have fun now!
