FX55 High Overclocked Temps

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Ive uped the multiplier to 14, so i got 2.8Ghz, it wasnt stable so i upped the voltage until it was stable, 1.62vcore, ive checked the temps and they are 42-44 on idle and 60 on load. Is this unusually high. Im using a Zalman CPNS9500LED for cooling which is a good air cooler but these seem unusually high.

Artic Silver5 i presume?

If you're using not so good Thermal Compound that could cause poor conductivity...

That's too high and you need to remount your cpu heatsink. You most likely have air bubbles or used too much or too little thermal grease or paste. Also, you don't want to use a higher multiplier, you want to use a lower one and increase your fsb/ram for better performance.

Well, just to give you an example, I used to run my 3700 at 2.86 ghz on stock cooling at my load temps were 48 C max. Do you have decent airflow inside your case? (being sucked in from the front and blowing out from the rear?) You never want your cpu max temps to exceed 55C and 50C is a better figure to aim for.

With that rig, and what your trying to get out of it, that cooler not going to do the job for that kind of overclock, never go past 55c. and I would go with a typhoon or water cooling and use as5 thermal compound.

I found that my temps increased really fast as I inched up in speed. Even at idle my system is at about 47C. It goes up to about 53-55 now under load. But it is stable. I was thinking it was something I did. I have re mounted the cooler about 8 times, no change. I am thinking it is my case. But you seem to be having the same temps as me.

im might look into a vapochill or water cooling. What sort of temperature does water cooling achieve.
