E4300

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
First of all its my summer holidays and i was bored..So i decided to reseat my GFx card and my HSF..So i do the graphics card and put it to one side then go to the CPU and take the hsf off clean HSF and CPU and then put some AS5 on the cpu and rub it evenly with cling film aroudn my finger..So i put it all back together and i start it up..CCC says my temps are 30's idling, which is good for gfx..So to check the CPU i open up coretemp and its at 35c core 1, and 37c core2 as im typing this..When i load Prime95 it shoots staright up to 62c after about 30 seconds..Now do i have to wait for it to "settle" on it? Or have i done something wrong....Coz thats basically the same temps i was getting before and i thought they were a bit high....And also my CPU is not overclocked to 2.75Ghz liek it says in my sig i had to clear the CMOS shortly after that because everythign was messing up..So im all stock atm....I want to overclock but obviously if its that hot now im not so sure...



Second of all i was wondering if i should pick up a E7200, i have enough for one and they apparently overclock alot...So should i grab one? Will i see much of a performance leap?

Thanks for help guys

I would try reseating using the line method Arctic Silver recommend. As for the e7200, thats your choice - It should overclock better and has a little better cache. The only performance increase you would see would be from a higher overclock.

Ok i'll try reseating it...By teh line method just put a line of AS5 right down the middle not too thick not too little and just plonk teh HSF straight on top?

The best way to apply AS5 is to put a thin bead horizontally across the top of the cpu the size of a rice grain, with stock settings my e4500 would run at 22c idle. According to the company that makes it the AS5 compound does have a break in cycle, it will take several thermal cycles to achieve its full potential which is estimated about 3-5c lower than current idle temps.

Im almost positive that the temperature is out on these cpu's by 15c because with my sycthe infinity it says i idle at like 40-45 and load at 65 with my ambient at 20C. Also i put a thermal probe right on the IHS on the cpu and it said it was at about 28-30 on the probe( it was in the center of the IHS as well, so contact between the IHS and the Infinity would have been poor. These are my thoughts and observations so you can take em or leave em

Hmm for once Speedfan (which never reads the correct temps for me) reads the same temps as Coretemp...Hmmm ill wait for some more responses...+Rep for those that have helped

i have had a e4300 and it ran hot no matter what i did or how i seated my waterblock. i did lap it and it dropped a few degrees. what voltage are you running at? i used everest to see my temps it seemed to work well

Use RealTemp for the e4300. Last time I used CoreTemp it was telling me 65C load at stock settings with an AC 7 Pro...I really doubt that. With real temp it was more like 47C or so.

Edit: Also, RealTemp puts my core temps slightly above the temperature I'm getting from my motherboard sensor, which seems right. CoreTemp put them like 15C higher than my CPU temp from my motherboard.

Stock..Everythign stock...Last tiem i tryed overclocking Windows started crashing and dying in the end it wouldnt start..Tried settign everythign back to stock in BIOS and it still didnt work..Cleared CMOS and still corrupt Windows so i reformmated to the wrong hard drive then had to switch hard drives and put windows on there are format the other ones...So..Yeh..overclocking this has been hard..Although i did get somethign like 2.5GHz stable with stock voltages from 1.8Ghz...

i suggest you do the pad mod on it. its somewhere on these forums as well as many others. you can make it 2.4 stock and up the volts to 1.4 all in one swoop and not have to really change the settings in bios much. i would get the temp problem you have sorted first. are you sure the hs is seated properly? heres a link if you are interested
