85 Dedgreee Celsius Newbie Help!!!

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hello all from newbie to forum. I just bought a pre-packaged computer system from etc computers in canada. In a nutshell, q6600 (g0 kentsfield) already overclocked to 3.4ghz. No crashes, however I ran Core Temp and under load 85 degrees 0 core, 82 degrees, 72, and 71 on core four under load!! I called up the manufacturer and he told me that as long is it isn't crashing, don't worry. He said 85 degrees or under, no problem. Now, I am computer illiterate and know nothing about overclocking, but I have never read 85 degrees being okay. My question is: Should I worry? What can I do to reduce temperature? I'm in desperate need of help. Full system specs listed below.

Intel q6600 quad OC to 3.4ghz (g0 kentsfield)
Xalman cnps9500 AT pure copper ultra quiet cpu cooler
ETC 'Profesional OC service' to 3.4ghz
Kingbox ddr2 pc2-6400 2gbx1/800 mhz (micron d9) (quantity 2)
Asus P5K/EPU MB
ATI Radeon 512mb CrossfireX
RaidMax Sagitta 2 gamer case
Raidmax 450 W Silent performance Power Supply

You should take it back and get a refund. They've obviously not attached the heatsink/applied thermal paste correctly along with lying to you.

If it's really over 80 degrees, there should be many problems. even CPU function can be throttled.
Try some benchmarks see if all the scores and latency are appropriate regarding your setup.
If it didn't help, try upgrading BIOS. or re-mounting your Heatsink and Fan with some better thermal paste.

However, if they offer warranty on the system, I'd just listen to them and use it if there's no problem at all.

My suggestion...

A.) enter bios (by pressing delete at bootup) and check to see what you voltage is, and if its over 1.475 decrease it to a max of that, then be sure speedfan is disabled and any fan setting is at 100%.

B.) Remove Zalman and reseat with a small ammount of thermal paste AS5 or OCZ Freeze (size of a grain of rice dead center)

Ok. Anything look wrong?? Here is what the BIOS Says: (BTW 1 year parts 3 years labor warranty)

CPU Temp 41 (Obviously, idle)
MP Temp 38
CPU FAN 2636 RPM
QFAN OFF
Chas 1 and 2 Fans N/A

CPU Volt 1.328
3.3V- 3.296
5v- 5.136
12V- 11.872

Cpu Ration 9.0
CPU TM Function- ENABLED
Freqeuncy 3.22
FSB Fan 1432 MHz
CPUID 6FB
Ratio Status Unlocked
Actual Value - 9

How do I increase Fan Speed?
post #7 of 30
cpu fan @ 2636 is pretty good....

that 41 temp suggest something is wayy wrong... with those volts it shouldnt be past low 30's in bios.


Your going to need to re mount the Zalman fan on your cpu...

its probably either not seated properly or has wayy too much TIM on it...


Also what is your room tempature?

And run CPU-Z when in windows and see what the voltage is there

Don't know room temperature. It is a tad warm in here. The 0 core cpu was running at 85 with both of the case side covers on it. Without one side cover (the one with fan built in). the temp maxes out at 81 or so. I have a room fan blowing air into the open side of the case and it remains around 81 or so. How hard is it to remount the cpu fan? It looks to be held on with 2 screws. Just unscrew, take it off and put it back on? Could I do it with never doing it before? Thanks for all the help.

sounds like its held on with screws/back plate which would mean youd have to disasemble and take the motherboard out, which may be a bad idea being your new to all this..

Its something you should learn for sure, and if you are confident in your ability to remember where everything goes than its not that hard... Its something i do every other month to reseat/clean my fans.

it should be held on with 4 screws, once screws are out you simply twist n pull til the thermal paste lets go and its off... Clean it wth alcohol real well and apply a small ammount of thermal paste (which you should have before starting) in the center of the cpu and put it backk together


Otherwise you have the warranty and if you talk to this guy that sold it to you..

refer him to this Intel Processor Spec Finder and ask why he is contradicting intel on how hot you can run a Q6600

Just take it back to the store. Don't play around with it as you might void the warranty.
