Weird Load Temps(Pls Help) - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I agree that the V1 probably isnt the best for a quad, but you still shouldnt be seeing your temps rise that high and keep rising. This is usually the symptom of a weak or non-existent fan, but you say it works so thats kinda strange.

The only thing I can recommend is the same as the others; reseating and/or apply less thermal compound. Also make sure you are getting good airflow around the heatsink, and that hot air isnt building up in your case.


BTW, nobody is talking down to you, its just that these are the most common problems with cpu heatsinks. Its always either bad contact, too much thermal paste, poor airflow, or a heatsink that is not adequate enough to keep the cpu cool enough.

K i re-seated it and no change in temps at all....
still doing the same thing... just rises and rises....
Fan works....
exact amount of compound...
i have an antec 900 case.... look it up... i have 4 fans blowing in....
1 exhaust fan in the back
and a 200mm fan chimney out the top.....
Adequate air flow.... cpu fan is at 2200 rpm
using artic silver 5
clips on heatsink are clipping in fine....
im slipping them in diagonal for an even seat

1st and 2nd im pushing down simoultaneously
3rd and 4th....

1st - 3rd

4th - 2nd

my cpu idle temps are AWESOME
and temps while playing games stay at or around 45C

Only thing that is Screwing up is the prime95 test.... its raising the poop out of my temperatures....

my ambient temp is really cold and low. MY TEMPS

Anyone have any other suggestions ?

Man something is wrong there....i will ask this though it might be something you already know. Have you been on AS5's website to see the application method for a quad?
Also can you check within the BIOS if the voltages for other components are too high?
Sometimes it could be seating the heatsink (i understand you are familiar with seating a heatsink) but some heatsinks have different behaviour.
Also have you tried checking whether the heatsink you currently own is concave?

Assuming you are seated and TIMed properly, it sounds like an airflow problem. My TRUE got my 6600 up to 82c until I got a wicked fan blowing over it, then it climbed right back down. It was the same pattern you describe though; it went from 36C to 82C in 8 minutes!! You're right to say "***!!"

okay.. you guys really help me out...
you got me thinking....
maybe the fan is just not strong enough and doesnt have the power to blow the heat out.... when its maxed. at idle temps the heat flow and conductivity is very small so its easily blowing it out.... maybe i should try putting a 120 zalman or antec fan somewhere in there to see if that helps blow the hot air out...(right in front of the heatsink fins and fans.)
Never heard of thermaltake producing high quality fans... even if the rpm is 2200...

i'll check it some more when i get home... and the heatsink bottom had a mirror finish... i could see myself in the bottom like a mirror.... so i doubt it is concave.... but maybe ill set it on a book or something and check.
