E7200 Running at 60C at Stock Speeds

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know why my E7200 Wolfdale could possibly be running at 60C idle at the stock 2.5Ghz speed? Voltage and everything is also stock. I tried reseating the CPU fan, reapplied Arctic Silver thermal grease, and nothing worked. I heard these chips are supposed to run at around 30C idle at stock usually. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your help!

What are you using to check your temps?
This might sound noob but is that cpu 45nm?
Clred Cmos?

All i can think of
Hope i helped.

What CPU fan do you have? Stock Intel?

How's your case airflow? Have you tried running with your case open to the ambient air?

***EDIT

Oh yeah, what software are you using to check your temps? Realtemp by any chance? Coretemp?

My case is open when I'm checking it, but it's the same when it's closed. It's the stock fan from Intel. I'm using the BIOS to check the temps and SpeedFan and they're both reporting the same thing.

JoshsPC this is the 45nm chips. Which is odd because I heard these things always run cool!

Do your temps change at all under load? Download RealTemp and see what that says.

I forgot to check if it changes under load. I do remember that I tried OCing it to 3.0ghz and it went all the way up to 70C idle in the BIOS, so there's definitely something wrong.

I'll try RealTemp and report back soon.

EDIT: Also, just curious, are you guys saying that it's possible that even the BIOS is getting inaccurate readings?

Ok if its the stock fan did you remove the thermal goup from it?
First try Real Temp because its a 45nm
Secondly Update your BIOS if there is one available.

All i can think of atm but ill do some research for you now

Hope I Helped

The BIOS reads from a temp sensor on the mainboard under the CPU socket. It's never very accurate.

Realtemp/Coretemp uses the temp sensors on the CPU die.

What would updating the BIOS do? The BIOS isn't making the CPU run hot.

It's either:

- Too much voltage (which the OP said can't be it since the vcore is at stock)
- Bad HSF (bad contact, no TIM, stock HSF)
- Poor/No proper case airflow (not really it since OP said this happens even when case is open)
- Bad Chip (hope not )

Thanks a bunch for all your help.

I removed all of the thermal crud before I put on the Arctic Silver. (I'm still unsure of the proper amount, can anybody remind me of this?) I think it looks okay though.

I updated my BIOS a while ago, and that didn't appear to do anything. (I still see that typo in the BIOS settings, heh!)
