Heat Issues: 4000+ X2

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Today I decided I wanted to run Prime95 to see what my max temp was and this is what I got.



This is a few minutes later.



It gradually increased my temp's from the 2nd picture to the 1st and I was afraid to let it get any higher so I stopped Prime95.

My CPU is currently clocked to: 2713MHzx10.5 , my Bus is 258 MHz and my HT is 1033 MHz.

I used to have a 3600+ clocked to 2.7 GHz on a stock cooler that never got past 50 C, I switched it with a 4000+ because I thought it would over clock better and also bought an Arctic Freezer.

What would you suggest I do?

The temp variation, were you load testing during both readings?

Did you use (new) thermal paste/grease?
Did you apply the thermal paste according to the directions for that paste and core?

I find that many users do not read nor follow the directions on their thermal paste and apply it wrong... Which leads to major heat issues!

well I did apply new paste when I installed the 4000 and the Arctic Freezer... Maybe I need to do it again?

I did have to mod my case to get the Arctic Freezer to fit, its a pretty tight fit.

I'm actually surprised that my computer did not crash on me. Insane temps...

Those are really high ;l Well compared to my 4000+ I used before I got the Q,
I had mine running at 2.7ghz 24/7 on stock volts and stock cooling and it never went above 60 if I remember correctly. I even had it at 2.9ghz for a while. I'd try a reseat or something, what's your vcore at 2.7?

Also did you try more than one temp monitoring prog? Alot of 4000+ brisbanes give false temps so i'm told.

I have a 4000+ running @ 2.8 GHZ (stock Vcore). On full maxed out load, I never go above 40 C. Even when I clock it to 3.0 GHZ (upping Vcore), it never runs much higher than 40 C.

Your temps are insane, and if I were you, I would stop running Prime95 until you reinstall your HSF. You either didn't install the thermal paste correctly, or your AF PRO has a warped base. Try the "razor blade test" in order to determine how flat the HSF base is, and then do the same on the processor itself. If both the HSF and processor are flat, then do the following:

1) Clean all the thermal paste from the processor. Use an old cloth and rubbing alochol. Make sure there is no residue left.
2) Do the same to the HSF base.
3) Get some AS5 or other good thermal paste and apply one BB sized dot in the center of the processor.
4) Lay the HSF on the processor, and gently rotate the HSF about 10 degrees in both directions. Make sure the HSF is snugly on top of the processor, then latch it down.

If that doesn't help, the next step would be lapping. This is a PITA, however.
