Need Help/Advice! (Q660)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I seem to have a bit of a problem with weird temp readings....
Ive got an abit ip35 pro xe board and I had some problems to start with when I first tried installing the freezer 7 cooler to the MB, as the plastic pins bent back, so I couldnt fix it, and in the end had to use the stock intel heatsink
Am currently running at stock speed (2.4ghz) but am having a few issues with temperature readings etc
I dont bother going by the bios readings as ive read with this MB that they arent correct, in windows though I am getting an idle temp using real temp of around 39-40 on each core, but if i run prime 95 or run a power hungry game, a the temps shoot up rapidly around to 90ish and drop back down just as quick after I close the program/game
Surely this cant be right? ive been leaving the side of the case off as well, and even felt the heatsink and it doesnt feel hot, i think its mounted properly as I had trouble fixing this to the MB as well. am worried in taking it off as well in case it wont mount again!
Anyone know why? could it be a bad chip?
Ive got a 550w psu, and im running 2x nvidia 8600gts cards

90 is pretty high for the stock cooler at stock speed. Are you sure all four pins are in all the way? Those things are a royal pain. Which is one reason why I only use bolt-through.

Is the CPU fan control enabled in the BIOS?

It doesnt feel hot because it doesnt seem like any heat is being transferred into it, that and the thermal compound on the stock cooler is horrible.

Go pick up some OC freeze if you can, and if not, you can get as5 everywhere and try to reseat it.

I did originally want to try and use the ac freezer 7 pro, but couldnt get it fitted in the board, and now i dont think i will as all pins are pushed back:



Also is it possible that it isnt seated correctly due to my idle temps at around 40, and then shooting up to 80-90 because its creating more heat due to usage?
Is it worth trying to resit the stock? or should i try the ac again?

Edit: I have got some as5 as well....

Ok, what you need to do, is twist the black thing, and then pull, it should come off. There should be a little arrow, but for me, its to the left.r

No worries, I managed to sort it!
I took off the heatsink and tried to mount the ac freezer 7 back on again, and this time ive managed to mount it properly!
Idle temps are now around 26, and on full load under prime 95 they are only going upto 45 max!!
