temps making me sick.. and destoying my heat sink and cpu. please help

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I know I already posted a thread about this but I've yet to get help, or even suggestons besides reseat. Well I have reseated it... about 20 times or so now. My TRUE has a few scratches on it now from all the reseats as does my cpu. I've tried everything I can think of.. Penny mod using a mechanical pencil tip to apply a small line.

So far my best result is penny mod(1 penny) + small line + very very tiny dots kinda of near the corners..

My temps under idle are 35/37(this has never dropped below 37 even when I had it at stock and the other core was 31-32)
At load my temps are 50-52 (52 max) after 10 min of prime 95 small ffts (i find this to generate the most heat)



I'm using realtemp. My overclock is 445x9 so 4005mhz. My vcore under load is 1.264. My ambients is about 73-75 atm(this will increase to 76-79 during the hottest part of the day)


If needed I could try to take some pictures of the as5 on the heatsink / cpu after I remove it and maybe someone could tell me if i'm using too much... not enough... or need some in another spot.


EDIT* I forgot to mention that using small line + small dots near the sides has knocked 1-2C off the max temp. and 1-2C off the idle temp on that one core

Edit again before asked.. My rocket fish is modded with 7 case fans (110 CFM each) and I'm using a scythe ultra kaze 2000 on my true. No difference in temps with side on or off

52C load is good for that oc.

Why do you feel 50C-52C is too hot? That doesn't seem like a lot to me at all. I know you have a killer cooler and a 45nm dual, but still.


edit: Also, what application are you using to measure temps? While I won't get into the whole "all temps are wrong" speech, there can be large variances between applications.

Not sure what you are so worried about imo. If 52c is your max then you have 20c left in headroom before you are at any danger.

How low do you want your temps?? Maybe go wc.

imo, your temps aren't that bad but then again I don't have a E8400 so maybe they are supposed to run at like what 40c when oc'ed.

Thanks all for the comments. Maybe I should settle for 52-53 under load.

To answer a few questions:
I'm using realtemp as I hear it is more accurate than coretemp for the e8400's
From all info I have gathered <50 for everyday and <60 for benches... I'm looking for everyday.

With my house AC unit... I expect to hit 54 during the hottest part.

Thanks for all the replies so far

EDIT: You all replying faster than I can reply to first 1-2 replies. So I'm going to take these temps, unless someone posts that thinks my e8400 should run cooler. I have reseated so many times, counting my Vendetta 2 I went through 2 tubes of as5( about 75% of a tube was lost trying to get the pencil tip to work, I had as5 all over me and it's a pain to get off.)

Even if you hit 54c during the hottest part of the day you will be fine running it 24/7 at those temps. Your vcore is great, and from what I have read that will be what kills the E8400 before temp is too high a vcore.

mid 60's loaded is fine, so you have plenty of room. It isn't the actual temp shown that is important so much as the delta to TJ max. It really is moot what the numbers show, it is the diatnce to the limit that is important. Since different application can read this limit differently, you can have one reading 50C and the other 55C while they are really the same distance from TJ max.

Don't worry about idle temps.
Load temps are what to watch for.
Distance from TjMax is usually constant between all the programs.
RealTemp uses 95c
CoreTemp 105c
Everest 100c
SpeedFan somewhere in-between.

Yeah I've been reading up on it some as I was kinda of scared of using realtemp despite people say it's more accurate.

I moved my computer directly over my AC vent now and temps have fallen.. 51-52. I don't think the AC vent would be cold/hummid enough to cause condesation, right?. I may rearannge my room a little so I can get the bottom intake fan directly over the vent also.


Distance to TJ max is 44 at the moment.

Once again thanks for the very quick replies..

Edit: After sitting my case almost fully on the vent my temps have now dropped to 48-50C. So my goal of <50 is met if it is safe. I believe AC air to be very dry, even with that being the case is it safe. I have a fan on the bottom that is sucking in the air, according to a temp. probe i have the air an inch above the vent is about 55F(which is about how high my fan is off the ground)
