Heat problems

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Okay, I know theres definately something majorly wrong here (Thats why I'm making sure I have almost nothing running to keep my tempritures low), right now, with 2% OS usage, and about 12% total load, I'm running (At stock, according to my external sensors) at 64.2c(It keeps getting worse every day from what I can tell), which worries me quite alot, the heat sinky is on correctly, nothings infront of the fan or anything, I have taken the heat sink off the CPU one or two times (Changing cases, I have a bad habit of breaking them), I'm wondering if thats the cause, or if something here is faulty (Not the temp sensor, I already tested that), I have a Bigwater SE in the post, but I do beleive theres something drastically wrong here, so I look to you guys, for possible solutions, maybe I put the sensor in wrong? (Its next to the CPU socket under the heatsink, its not keeping the heatsink from touching the processor though, theres plenty of space between the sensor and the heatsink, quite a loose fit), thanks in advance.


Edit: Thats with my window open and heating off (I'm freezing my arse off here x_x)

Are you using silicone???

Try looking at the temps in BIOS, It should be at least 25% less of what is in windows, 50 or less, less is better if not, some weird probe is shoot ahah...

I use silicone, that Suxx

it could be speedfan (are you using speedfan?)'s problem, i've had 64C on one of my temps turns out it was a empty sensor.

Every time you remove your hs, you really should clean the hs and cpu very well and apply some new thermal grease before you reseat it again. AS5 is usually recommended around here. If you remove it, then put it back on with the same grease or pad or whatever on it, your creating a wall between them for heat transfer and your temps will rise. If you do have some kind of pad, clean it off as well so you have two clean surfaces for maximum heat transfer.

Even if you just applied grease, and start to put it on already smashing down on the thermal grease, then say you made a mistake seating it and pull it partly back off again. Start all over, clean them again put more grease and seat it back once directly on and down never coming back up. Once you put new grease, you should seat it once and only once, not taking it back off.

Holy_Retribution,
You said you have re-installed the heatsink one or two times.
Did you change/remove the thermal paste that comes attached to Intel's stock heatsink in the form of a thermal pad and replace it with something else ?

You might wanna check this post out: http://www.tomshardware.com/2004/11/...oke/page3.html
Check the part where it says: "What is interesting is the result for thermal resistance. The cooler reaches just 0.37 K/W with the heat-conducting paste supplied with it, which is applied to the cooler in a similar way to a heat-conducting pad. When conventional heat-conducting paste is used, the thermal resistance rises to 0.51 K/W! For this reason, we recommend that you use the accompanying heat-conducting paste."

So basically if you're planning on using Intel's stock heatsink when you install your heatsink for the first time then it's better to keep the thermal pad that comes with it.

On the other hand (RoscoeMcGurk got me to it ), every time you take the heatsink off your cpu it is recommended that you always clean both your cpu and heatsink (with Alcohol because it's volatile and so it evaporates quickly) and re-apply a new very thin layer of thermal paste. Arctic Silver 5 is great, give it a try (http://www.arcticsilver.com/).
Just a quick note here, never mix different thermal compounds.

I never replaced the thermal compound, and no, I have seperate sensors added with an LCD screen which read near-identical (Its usually 2 or 3c higher) to what the bios says, but replacing the thermal stuff lowered it to 27c idle. (I grabbed some "Cooler master premium thermal compound" from my nearest pc shop for a fiver...) I hope my bigwater SE arrives tomorrow, its 3 days late already (working days, I let them off for the weekend <_>)
