Is my system running too hot? - Page 2

post #11 of 30
did you just re-use the residual thermal compound from your last CPU as opposed to cleaning the HSF and applying new thermal compound? From what I read, that might be what you did, which would explain the poor temps. Also, what are your ambient temps?

I was using hmonitor to monitor my temps, but the owner of that site is a skank and doesn't inform you on his website anywhere that new motherboard = new licence.

So I'm using CoreTemp.

How do I find out my ambient temperatures? Do I need some optional sensors rigged up in my case?

And yeah, I reused the old thermal paste >.< I'm going to try resitting the heatsink today and ill be buying some more paste on payday.

For 45nm CPU's, apparently "RealTemp" is more accurate at reporting true core temperatures than other temp reporting software out there--give that a shot.

Ambient temperatures--if you have a thermostat in your home, just go by that (sure, it won't be exact, but it's a good enough estimation)--just a rough guess.

Yep, I'd say with 98% confidence that your temps are so high 'cause you didn't apply thermal compound to the new CPU--likely the residual from the last HSF mounting isn't nearly enough, and likely there are probably many air gaps, not allowing heat transfer. Like you said you would, go ahead and get some new thermal compound, slap it on there (not too much...) and you should be good to go. Good luck!

You might want to use realtemp. Supposedly its more accurate with 45nm CPUs and it should read a bit lower at load.

I would go with the re-used thermal grease as a problem.

I recently purchased a prebuilt rig, it's temps where high (not as high as yours) and I went to change out the cooler and noticed whom ever put the cooler on put the grease in an "O" shape... That was the worst way to apply thermal grease... I cleaned the surfaces and reapplyed new thermal grease and tried out the stock cooler... The problem was the grease not the cooler...

I suggest read instructions! If you get Artic Silver 5 find the instruction for your chip type and read (and follow) the instructions.

You said that you use auto settings in the bios, becareful with that my board when i put vcore to auto sometimes goes berserk and ends up with 1.5+vcore thats why even with default voltage i always put it in bios and dont leave it to auto

You really need to apply the TIM once agin an reseat the heatsink.
Even Im using gemin II and only with a good application of thermal paste it works well..

well remove you heatsink , vacum it using brush attachment,use IP or iso propyl alcohol (available at medical stores) and a little cloth to get the old paste off,do the same for processor,apply new paste on cpu horizontal line for quad and vertical for dual cores.
place cooler on top move it in a way that it spreads the paste on cpu and heatsink.
tighten the bolts at the rear in an X way that is
1 3
4 2
and taking care that they are equally tight,,,
boot up pc...check temp in bios,check in windows,check after benchmark,and report back

Yeah, Realtemp was giving me about 10C lower temperatures, but, I don't mind going with CoreTemp's higher temps, because I'd rather catch it early than too late.

I'm going to give it a clean now after this post. I'm going to have to reuse the paste that's on there. Will have to gently remove some and reapply. I intended on getting the cleaning fluid too. I've seen some paste on OCUK that comes in a nail varnish type bottle that's 90% silver or something. I'm going to splash out and get that. It's apparently easy to apply.

What you think?

Don't reuse paste! It is cheap get some from Best Buy if you have to, but recommend hitting a computer repair shop and getting something decent!

The older versions of core temp have a bug for reading 45nm chips temps. What version of core temp U using?
