i7 950 Pre OC temp check

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, long time lurker first time poster here.

I've just build up a new rig as follows:
i7 950
Artic Cooling Freezer XTREME Rev.2
X58A-UD3R
4x 2GB Corsair XMS3

Its going to be my first overclock and wanted to make sure these temps are normal because they seem a little higher than my previous system

Idle - 39c
Load - 73c (100% for 15 minutes using Prime95)

Thanks guys!

It helps a lot if you fill in your system specs as completely as you can.

Seems a little high for stock temp and an aftermarket cooler no?
post #4 of 14
yea something may be wrong

I would reseat cooler to make sure you have the best contact possible

if you do and that is the best that cooler can do, then time to look to something a little better

Here is a nice one that will out preform an H70

to the OP ... your idle temp seems resonably close but your load temp is way high compared to mine (although, i think mine might be high too)

My temps:

Idle: 34*C Average
Load: 56*C Average (loaded via Prime95 for 10min)

As others have said reseat your heat sink. I'm guessing this is the stock cooler at stock clocks?

Neither the OP or me have stock coolers he has an Artic Cooling Freezer Extreme and I have a Megahalem w/ Push/Pull, and yes ... both on the stock 3.06 clocks.

In that case reapply your thermal paste, make sure you clean all the old thermal paste off first with rubbing alcohol before you reapply.

Just a noob-ish question but how much Thermal Compound should you use?
