Odd CPU temps

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
i recently overclocked and it was working fine up aroudn 3.8ghz no problems at all cept for my bios which would bring the clock back down once in a while.. anyways, im playing counterstrike and i minimize for a second and i notice tht my cpu temp from speedfan says 58C i was like ***!!!!!!! its usually ide at 36C and load at 48-50C so this is way off beat.. i do however tend to use alot of AS5 when i put my big typhoon on :S could this be the source of my problems? i have good intake and output (120mm in the front blowing in, 120mm blowing out in the rear, and one 80mm that blows directly into my big typhoon.
anyone got any ideas on how i can get my temps lower.. i just ordered an 80mm fan for a mod that im going to use in 2 of my cd bays and a 120mm fan that is gonna sit on my BT to replace the stock one (no difference just with blue led's)

**im going to bed now but i will be on at around 10am EST just leave a message and ill check it ASAP TY!

How lnog ago di9d you put as5 on. If not long, then let it heal, usually takes 200 hours to heal completely.

the amount of as5 could be the result of the higer temp but you are still within limits try and keep below 60c if possible but 65c i believe is the max you would want. When you get your new fan for the BT just take all the as5 off and re-apply with a thin layer
- get a small ziplock bag and put ur hand inside spread the as5 around envenly until you get a thin layer and then put your BT back on
-You can also try lapping your cpu this would help to drop another 5-8c if done correctly
-another thing to try is this.. LINK

the as5 is probably only a month old :S but i did use excess.... :S i just bought some more fans as i said so mabey that will get more air flow in there

airflow wasn't your problem, that was killer airflow. Its more than likely your heatsink seated on massive amounts of AS5. Take it off, clean both surfaces and re apply, check out a couple guides to see how much. No more than a grain of uncooked rice

Do NOT use that much AS5.


It not only hinders heat transfer, but it will cause heat creep. Which is where the heat will slowly climb over time while running. This is because the heat is building up.


Remove your heatsink, completely clean the heatsink and CPU, and then re-apply only a small amount of AS right in the center.
