Yikes! E8400 at stock speed running too hot?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just put together a new machine with a core duo e8400 @ 3ghz and haven't gotten around to doing much with it in the way of overclocking as I'm still using the stock cooler. Today I thought I'd mess around with it a bit and got it running at 3450mhz with no real trouble, but when I ran orthos on it, it jumped up to 70c pretty fast, so I set it back to stock speeds.

On a whim, I ran orthos on it at stock speeds, and it climbed up to 72c before I shut orthos down. Not as fast of course, but it still got up there...

Is this a normal temperature range for this CPU? I've been in the AMD camp for a while so am not sure, but 70+ seemed really hot to me.

I'm thinking I'm going to pick up a zerotherm nv120 when I get a little spare cash, but right now I'm strapped from picking up this new system :\\

your problem is the stock HSF

especially if you are overclocking

i would keep everythign stock until you can get a new HSF

Stock coolers are just bad, I would get a aftermarket HSF asap.

Yeah - I knew that it would be pretty bad, certainly not good for overclocking - I just didn't expect it to be -that- poorly designed that it couldn't keep it cool running at stock speeds.

That seems irresponsible on intel's part

70c is pretty bad for 3.4ghz. Mine e8400 runs at 4.0ghz with 60c load.

BTW, use RealTemp to monitor 45nm processor as Coretemp and the likes reads the 45nm wrong. It reads 10 hotter, meaning 70c in Coretemp= 60c actual temp.

Good to know. That was my problem, using realtemp I max out at 60c, but that is running stock speeds. I've read some decent things about Zerotherms nv120 so I thought I would give that a whirl. Hopefully soon so I can get some more speed out of this bugger.

also sounds like the stock HSF might be mounted improperly. Like maybe a loose pin or something. It could be that the fan isn't spinning at full speed like it needs to (i have had a friend do this. he got bad temps with a Freezer 7 pro until he realized his fan speeds were turned down to like 25%. He turned them up and got a 10*C drop and he was @ stock speeds and volts)
