38C average or hot for an e8400 under a zalman cnps9700? - Page 5

post #41 of 54
so 45nm experts

If my overclock is giving me 38 at idle and around 44 for load, can I push it higher?

What voltage are you using at 3.8? Sometimes I've found that even when an oc is stable at a given voltage my temps will drop some when I increase my volts a little. It's sort of like finding the sweet spot between oc and vcore.

Im at stock voltages.

dont ever trust the E8400 temps. most of them have a bad sensor in them. sometimes mine says im at 32C idle and 55C load other it says im at 49C idle and 51C load LOL

I dont see why not. See if its stable at those voltages and clock it higher. If its unstable then give it a small voltage increase (dont go higher than the vcore limit for the proc) and see if its stable. I would try to keep it upper 40's lower 50's if you can at full load but I think you can have upper 50's and be fine. 72c is the saftey limit but I would try to stay as far away from that as possible.

Another thing you want to do is download realtemp if you dont have it already as realtemp will give you more accurate temps for 45nm procs. You may have also applied too much as5 as you mentioned already...how much DID you apply?
I used the guide for C2D procs on the Arctic Silver site, which shows a thin line of as5 running vertically down the middle of the chip. I think I may have made the line too thick, though. I had to re-seat the proc last night, and it did look a little heavy when I removed the HSF.

Yes too much as5 will actually make the temps worse. I would almost recommend redoing the as5 application using just a half grain of rice worth of paste. Make sure that it is spread over the cores as the guide recommends and reseat the fan. Also, the temps should drop a little more as the as5 cures (maybe 1-3 degrees). Good luck, let me know if you do anything else to it.

Im now overclocked to 3.9 with stock voltages and ran prime95 for a couple hours with no crashes. I am idling pretty high at about 45-49c but my loads never go over 60 (it hit 61 during the prime 95 but never stayed there). What do you guys think?
post #49 of 54
What's your stock voltage for 3.9 on your cpu?
I need 1.216 for 3.6 and 1.28 for 3.8
My stock voltage is 1.15

Its telling me mine is at 1.35 but I have not touched it.
