My I7 920 temps

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey all

what are you guys running of temperatures on a 920 ? stock and Oc ?

I think mine is a a big high considering its running a watercooling loop.

the loop is a Thermochill PA120.2 running two fans at low speed,
and a passive reservoir mounted outside the case. only the cpu is watercooled.

my I7 920 is a C0 running @ 3200/3340 (BCLK 160) with Turbo on.

idle temps are around low to mid 30
Load temp running OCCT Linpack are on the hottest core 61'C

On a side notes though,
i ran a 30min OCCT linpack test with my system at the settings befor i started to OC, meaning stock settings, except for X.M.P enabled running the memory at 1600mhz. and it was getting a little bit hotter than my overclocked setup, around 2'C for avg.

So i did actually manage to shave off between 2-3'C of each core running the overclocked setup compared to the stock with X.M.P

Used Core temp and Real Temp to monitor Temperatures, which seems to be more accurate than Easy Tune 6 for monitoring temperatures (seems to be recording -10C compared to Real and Core temp)

OC made from Bios not ET6

without a definent answer to that as i don't have a room temperature gauge.
my guess would be around 23'C maby ?

Hmm, does seem a little hot for such a low o/c, What's your vcore and other voltages set to?

Vcore set to 1.1125V (stays between 1.04-1.07 in windows monitored mode)
Dram 1.600V
QPI 1.275V

Bios reads systemtemp around 29-30'C

Thing is thoug, it didn't change temperatures when i went from Stock to OC :/
i actually got it to drop a few degrees from changing vcore to manual setting
so maby its just my ambient temp ?

Have your tried reseating your cpu block?

Havent tried reseating yet, but wouldn't i reach much higher temperatures if the block had bad connectivity.

If it was bad connectivity between block and CPU wouldn't i see temp difference going from 2.66 to 3.2 ?

btw both Turbo and HT is enabled.

No not really because your vcore is below standard, Try reseating, i dare say that is whats causing your issue!

Ok Thanks
I will try to reseat the heatsink when i get home
what temps should i be expecting ? new paste needs breakin, but will i be able to tell the difference right away ?

also anyone knows if there is an expiration date on Arctic Silver 5 ?, guess mine is about 1yr old + the time the store had it.

Those temps do seem a little high, but bearing in mind the C0 revision of the 920's generally run hotter and are harder to OC, and take more voltage to do so. Here are my temps running with a VenX with one 1900RPM fan, folding (so 100% stress), but keep in mind mine is a D0, at stock, which, as I said, do generally run a little cooler and can overclock higher with less voltage:



About 21-22C ambient.
