E7200 3.7Ghz; running hot!

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
I'm currently running at 3.7Ghz; running an ORTHOS test with RealTemp in the background.
Minimum: 42C
Maximum: 68C

EDIT: I've only ran ORTHOS for about 3 minutes, so I'm sure it can get hotter than that.
EDIT2: I have my VCore set to about.. 2.8V?
This seems like a really big gap, though it may be because I'm overclocking...
I'm just worried that my heatsink isn't properly seated, though I'm sure it is otherwise my temps would be off the wall, right?

I had a Arctic Freezer 7; but it wouldn't fit my mobo, so I had to go to another CPU fan, I can't remember what it's called, but it seemed to keep my temps about the same as the AF7 when still clocked at 2.6Ghz.

You guys have any tips to reduce heat? I'm tempted to purchase a new sidefan / backfan (as long as their quiet; you guys got any newegg suggestions?)

I can't afford to buy too much; perhaps a new heatsink / fan?

If your vcore were set to 2.8v you should look at your cpu quick and say goodbye.

All kidding aside, check that number and see what it really is.

Might indeed be the heatsink/fan. You'll need quite a beefy one with such an overclock. The Arctic is already borderline imo, and anything less than that is insufficient.

And how much can you afford?
this is a really nice cooler:

What are you talking about? People around here are saying it only gets dangerous when it gets past 3.6V

(That's what I set it in the BIOS, my actual CPU is using 1.3V)
I don't think I can drop it any, everytime I drop it a bit my PC refuses to boot.

That one seems to be in a good price range, but will it fit my mobo? For some reason they were saying the Arctic can't because it was off by just a few.. And it was causing the heatsink to pop out of place.

When I was installing the AC7 it was almost touching my northbridge, it was a REALLY tight fit.

3.6v? You do mean 1.3625v as said by Intel. So you are sure you are at 1.3v which is ok. The name of the cooler you are using would be nice but since it seems like its just as crap as the stock is I guess it woulden't matter much. At 3.9Ghz iam using 1.344v and load at 61c, thats 13c under thermal spec (74c) with a Zalman CNPS9700 NT. For 3.8Ghz I only need 1.296v so if you need 1.3v for 3.7Ghz there is something wrong.. I will assume its the build up of heat.

What is your ambient temp? Ambient is the temp of the air around the PC. Can you also run the sensor test on RealTemp and tell us what the movement on each sensor is.

Hmm, well that's what CPUz is saying, who knows how accurate they are.
Now CPUz says 1.24, this little program that came with my mobo says 1.26.
Ambient temps don't seem that high either.

I just don't know how I can lower my voltage while still successfully booting and have it stay stable.
You want me to list my BIOS settings and see what we can tweak around?
(EDIT: I havn't had a chance to do a real ORTHOS test, but it seems stable.)
