Stock core temps - mid 40's?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I've just purchased evga 780i motherboard with a wolfdale e8400 and during my first boot the core temp reading was 44c flirting with 46c. Clearly this is terrible temps at stock speeds espcially with a Zalman 9700 heatsink for cooling. Any advice?

What are you monitoring your temps with?
You should use Realtemp with your E8400.
Also apply your thermal like in this thread.

I used Arctic silver 5.. thats what i purchased for my first build and never really did research since on thermal compound for any temp benefits.. AC5 is still one of the best? Is MX-2 that much better?

..Either way i had a gut feeling i put too much on, i spread it over the whole damn thing as recommended by my comp buddies yeat 45c tells me they dont know ship. Thats why i have you guys..

Ive spent a while doing some research on this and have seen two different ways of applying.. one being a dot and one being a line.. you recommend the line over the dot?

Line if it is not lapped. CyberDruid sales this TIM called Diamond. I tried it and it is great. My temps while folding was 58c-60c 3.87@1.46. So I decide to use this Diamond stuff and I can say it worked. Now it's down to 52c 3.9@1.46.

Thermal paste is subjective and if you get a decent one then your fine. AS5 does have a break in time so you will lose a few degrees once its broken in. I would think maybe you used too much/too little paste and need a reseating. I usually use the line method, and then put a tiny dot on the heatsink itself.

I just spent a while successfully removing the previous thermal paste and using arctic clean 1 and 2 to clean each surface.. then i applied the recommended line of thermal paste and after connecting everything back up.. it wont start.. it tries to.. the heatsink, northbridge, and aux fan all TRY to start up with some flickering and then dies or i shut it down. Im really confused as hell. Some forums tell you to never spread thermal paste while others tell you to spread it throughout the surface but a VERY thin layer.. i did not spread it on this reapply of the thermal paste and it wont start up. What to do?

when you clean it did you make sure all the liquid is gone? hope you didnt turn it on when it was still wet from cleaning it. i say remove it again. reset the cpu make sure all the wires is connected and maybe take a hairdryer to it and dry it out before installing the heatsink. good luck

You can't get into the bios, no post? If no post then check your power connectors to the board specifically the extra 4/8 pin connector.
