Temps out of control! - Page 2

post #11 of 15
2 points I want to bring up.

Is the CPU 'sink getting fresh air? I mean, does it have a steady supply of cool air coming from outside the case? I found that no matter how good the fan on the sink is, it only works with the air it gets. The fan just pushes air through the fins and if that air cannot absorb more heat... well, you know...

The other is that I haven't had much success with the BB approach to AS5. I tried it like 3 times and over the course of a couple days the BB would never spread or the resulting spot would be way too thick. Then I tried spreading... (oh my god, say it ain't so!!!).
I put that same BB in the center of the CPU and kind of smeared it with the edge of a credit card. Then, and brace yourself for this one, I used a sandwich bag over my finger to pull and drag the AS5 VERY VERY slowly out to the edges of the CPU's heat spreader. Some ended up on the bag instead of the CPU. In the end I had an extremely smooth, thin layer on the processor, then seated my heatsink. Boom. 1 hour of Prime's torture test gives me 36*C. And this was with a heavily undervolted fan, mind you.

So I guess what I'm saying is just MAYBE there are more strategies than just the one and if your careful you can avoid a lot of the things people dislike about spreading, IMHO.

I'm just a n00b who's built only one friggin' rig. I could be DEAD WRONG.

I welcome criticism from those more experienced...

Yeah, i spread my as5 with a knife, you might want to try spreading it out instead of using a little blob.

Before you reseat though, try using another sensor to measure heat. Ive had motherboards before that were over 10 degrees off measuring cpu temperature.

LOL not sure a knife would be a good idea .Try speading it with an old credit card .Make sure it,s even and thin

Seems to be a bios problem. I would try to reflash to a more current version.
On my last rig, my board reported temps 20c higher than what they actually were, I flashed and all was good. Most likely it isn't overheating, and it's just a bios querk.
Do a search online for that exact mobo and see if others have run into the same problem, or go over to an MSI forum and see if there is another solution. I bet it's the bios.

Well I know it's running the latest bios because that was one of the first things I tried. Right now it's back at my friends house so I can't really try anything right now. I'm just assuming it's a misreported temperature and ingoring it.
