Unusually high E2160 temps?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

Seems like with summer here, I just can't win. I've already scaled back my overclock some, and yesterday spent a ton of time cleaning, sorting wires, swapping fans, etc in my case. So today, an hour or so into a Mass Effect session I get my CPU temp alarm going off (which is supposed to happen at 75c). I shut down, break everything down, and this is what I've got:

VID: 1.325v
BIOS vcore: 1.325v
Speedfan reading: 1.28v

Ambient: 80f (27c)
Idle: 52c/51c
FAH Load: 68c/66c

Both CPU and Ultra90 are lapped. The fan on the Ultra 90 is a Sanyo Denki DC Mini Ace 32, good for 55cfm at 2900 RPM. It's plugged straight into the mobo, AbitEQ disabled. These temps are after a reseat.

Am I just not remembering what good 2160 temps are, or is my high ambient killing me here? These (especially the idle) just seemed really high.

considering the specs and your 27c ambient, you should be looking at mid 30C to low 40s max idle... take off the HSF, taking note of how well the thermal paste spread before you wipe it off... if there wasn't a very good spread, the lap job might have been botched

When you go to reinstall the HSF, tape a mechanical pencil tip to the tube of AS5 to get an ultra thin line.... apply as below and make sure to tighten the HSF as much as the screws will allow

Yeah, like said above your ambient temp directly affects your CPU temp. Obviously you can't go below ambient, maybe match it at ideal cases, but never below. I think 52°C is really high for an idle temperature... With ambient of 27°C I would expect you to idle at mid 30's. How is your airflow in your case?

Running caseless (and stock) now, still idling at about 45c with the same ambients. Load temps have dropped significantly now that I'm out of the case, so somewhere I had some airflow issues going on. F@H is only bringing me up to 54/51, which is much more in line with what I'd expect. Current vcore is hovering around 1.296v.

EDIT:
2700mhz
~1.288vcore
60/57 load
