4400x2 temps on a Lanparty SLI-DR Expert

post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 
I just picked up a 939 board and processor. The processor was free, the board wasn't -- got it on ebay.

I just put it all together and it's sitting on my desk and I'm wondering about the setup.

The chip is a X2 4400+ Toledo with a JH-E6 revision.

I was running OCCT and my core temps went from ~30C at idle to 50-55C under load, despite the fact that I have a TT Big Typhoon. I know this thing pushes 110W, are these temps normal?

I've mainly seen Thermalright coolers on DFI 939 setups -- has anyone had experience with a Big Typhoon? Putting the backing on the underside of the mobo meant covering part of the components with the insulator. I'm thinking I need to cut the backing off and reapply with a gap in it to promote heat dissipation.

Thanks!

How much VCore are you running?

Is the setup overclocked?

What are the ambient temperatures?

How much TIM did you use?

Do you know what the X2 4400+'s stepping code is? The reason I ask is that some of the last Toledos (CPUs from the LCB9E/LCBQE) have been observed to "read hot," i.e., their thermal diodes to register hotter-than-expected temperatures.

Any of these, singly or combination with each other, can raise temperatures.

The VCore is 1.33

This thing isn't oc'ed, it's running at stock.

The ambient air temp is probably in the high 60s.

The stepping is 2.

I just used a little dot of AS5, maybe 1/8" in diameter.

wsail, thanks for the information.

The stepping code I referred to is not what CPU-Z reports; it's a number that's printed on the CPU's IHS. You'll have to remove the HSF to have a look at it.

It will look like this:

LCB9E 0704TPMW or CCBWE 0546XPMW.

For what it's worth, it looks like the chip either runs hot or reads hot. I wish I had your ambient temperatures in my bedroom, and the VCore and the CPU speed are stock.

I'd reseat the Big Typhoon and see if you can get better temperatures.

Question: Which Big Typhoon is it? The VX, or the original version (which has the superior bolt-down mounting mechanism)? Also, what fan is mounted on the heatsink?

I had one of these board. EXCELLENT BOARD by the way! The only complaint I had with it was the temperature reporting on it was off. Mine wasn't far off the mark, but some people were reporting up to 15C increases of temperatures over what was really the true temps. This was on the old DFI-Street forums, which are gone now, so sorry, I don't have a link for you. However, you may be interested to know that there is a bios update on the dfi site which adds temperature level adjustment in the bios by 1 degree increments.

Thanks for the info. The code is CCBWE 0608GPGW. I took the cooler (the regular typhoon (PL-0114), not the VX) off and the AS5 spread was approximately 1" diameter just slightly offset from center. I'll reseat and check it again.

Any other thoughts?

slngsht's comments are interesting (see the post above yours). I didn't know that the SLI-DR Expert read hot. My only comment on that point, though, is that how wise would it be to adjust or offset the temp readouts if you don't know what the point of reference really is?

I would experiment with TIM application and tighten down that Big Typhoon as much as possible.

Good luck, and keep us posted.

lots of people would get a laser temp probe and read the idle temps and compare them to the reported temps in pc health status in bios and adjust the temperatures accordingly to what the probe reported. seemed to work well, although it was hard to do with the heatsink on. I personally pulled the heatsink for a split second to see what was reported. I was very nervous doing that though.

slngsht, how expensive is a laser temp probe? And where might I get one?

Thanks.
