85 Dedgreee Celsius Newbie Help!!! - Page 3

post #21 of 30
to be quite honest if you have an old PC laying around id start taking it apart and putting it back together to get some experience and then i would just rebuild the PC you currently have with the help of us. The Zalman HSF unit you have should be enough to keep it cool and as most others have said is either improperly installed or with too much TIM. I hate to see companies ripping off people like this but happens all the time. Like i said though read some of the tutorials on this site and get some practice on an old junk machine.

If you need any help thats what we are here for =)

Edit: btw where do you live? If your in the US why did you buy a comp from a Canadian company?

Live in Detroit area. Looked through many different computer companies online and ran accross this one which has sold lots and lots of computers online via Ebay store with rave reviews from customers. Here is the link http://cgi.ebay.com/Intel-Core-2-Qua...1.c0.m14.l1308
That is the item I bought. 3796 items sold on Ebay with 98.3% happy customers. Maybe the problem is simple, honest, error of improperly installed cooler. Also http://www.zalman.co.kr/product/cool...D_775_eng.html here is the list of compatible Motherboards for this cooler ..Mine isn't listed!! My MB is ASUS P5K/EPU. Not there. Anyhow thanks again.

its for any socket 775 motherboard.... Yours is socket 775...

Again, its improperly installed on the motherboard...

You can either try to reseat the zalman or just run it til it fry's and use the warranty..


Im sure they build computers on a regular basis, and while its common for a Q6600 to reach 3.4, not all will safely, and for them to sell a "professionally OC'd to 3.4" pc, Id think they would know how to install a heatsink, so small human error, maybe it was put together late in the day on friday and they messed up a critical part.

I would not waste my time sending it back unless for a full refund.

You could also look around in your area for a computer shop that will do it for you for probably the same ammount youd pay in shipping

I think I fixed it on my own!!!!!!!!! Unbelievable. I opened up the case and noticed that a bundle of about 20 wires coming from the power supply were looped around the back of the cpu cooler and kind of stuck on the circular casing that goes around the three copper coils. I carefully stuck a pencin in the and coaxed the wires out so they were way far away from the cpu and just grazing the top of the casing. Now all 4 cores 100% for 10 minutes at 3.2ghz is giving 68 degrees core zero, 63 degreees, 55, and 57 degrees down from 85 degrees!!! wow. It doesnt make sense to me how this helped but it did.
post #25 of 30
wow sounds like they did a bang up job on cable management lol! you own the thing now so like a previous poster said just fix it yourself with help from memebers here and by the time you are ready for your next rig you will be building it yourself.

Please to go the userCP and edit your system specs, it will make it easier for us to help you! Take photo's of what you just did also it will help. We love pix!

Well looks like after 20minutes 4 cores 100% tops oout at 71 degrees, 69, then much lower on last two cores. Yes pics coming as soon as i get batteries for flashlight to illuminate the parts. Will update profile. Thanks again.
P.S. the computer store I took it to said 'the heat is just where it should be at 3.2ghz! That is way to much OC reduce it down to stock. I can't help you" I argued with the guy for 10mins and he said overclocking.net has no clue what they are doing. LOL. I pick up the computer and of course it's some 20 something year old kid punk.

Were the wires blocking the fan from spinning? I've had that happen once or twice and I got those extreme temps.

Those are still a little on the up-side - but still within acceptable limits.

You know, it's really weird. Even with the wires there, the fan was still spinning. If the fan was still spinning but 'nicking' the wires, one would think I could here a noise from that - no noise, perfectly silent. It is possible when coaxing the wires out that I nudged the cooler luckily into a better spot or more proper spot??? Doesn't really make sense to me but I'm just guessing. Or maybe the wires were just impeding the air flow.
post #29 of 30
Well done. Those temps seem more reasonable. Wires can really mess up air flow.

p.s. The guy that said overclock.net doesn't know anything should come visit the site more often. Maybe he can learn a thing or two. Everybody here could have told you that your temps were way too high. Even if it seemed stable it is not recommended to run over 70C with that chip. At 100C the cpu would have saved itself by turning off but nevertheless its better not go there.

I would still reseat the heatsink. It's worth a try to possible lower temps!
