Are my 8400 temps too high? *new question inside*

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
i am running stock right now at 1.128v and I am not sure if my temps are too high. I am at 40 degrees idle on a tuniq tower in core temp. Is this way too high? (Maybe I did a really crappy job putting my heatsink on lol)

Thanks.

Will 1.3v at 4ghz 24/7 kill my CPU?

I would suggest using Real Temp. Much more accurate for 45nm chips.

Available for download here.

So what is realtemp telling you?

Real temp tells me exactly 10 degrees lower than core temp. I am afraid if core temp is right because during stress tests, I hit 67 in core, and 57 in real.

Something doesn't sound right, I get 37-38 load with a Gemin...You could check Everest also...

Maybe a reseat is in order...

The real temp guy did extensive testing with his E8400, so real temp is the most accurate software monitoring program you'll find for the 45nm chips.

If only Intel would release the real tjunction specs for their desktop chips, then we would have a much more accurate reading for all chips.

Also I have another question. It keeps saying hardware failure detected in both Orthos and Prime 95. Is this due to unstable memory or an unstable CPU? (I am running 4050mhz at 1.264v in cpu-z and like 1.28v in Bios) (as for memory it is at 1060 up from 800mhz at 5-5-5-15)

Run Prime95's torture test and choose the "small FFT's". If you have problems there, it's most likely the CPU. 1.264v is kind of low for the E8400 at 4.0ghz. If you can get it stable at that voltage, you have one hell of a CPU. I have to crank mine up to almost 1.4 to get that.

For reference, here are my idol temps at 3.6ghz (it usually idols at 28C in realtemp...I just realized I snapped the screen shot while a scan was running in the background):

I am running orthos right now (the small FFT's - stress CPU test) for 40 minutes so far and it has yet to crap out. My voltage under load is 1.272 and idle it is about 1.3.

When I saw these i thought it was too good to be true, but I think I have one hell of a CPU on my hands. Just gotta re-seat the heatsink, and use AS5 instead of the AC stuff I used (the MX something, suppose to be really good). Load temps are 57 on real temp.

Although, I don't think I am going to see a 15 degree temp drop from re-seating, but who knows.
