AMD 955BE X4 Extreme Temps! (Resolved) - Page 4

post #31 of 42
I find it humorous that people act like going over 62c will make your chip die in a year, yes it will lower the life of the cpu but even if you take afew years off so it goes from lasting 10+ years to 5-8 years. Yes it can cause instability if run at those temps constantly for long periods of time but its not the end of the world like people on here make it out to be. On that note of course you should get new cooler if you are running over the rated max, it isn't good for the cpu but its not like its going to go up in flames if you go afew c over.

Your motherboard will automatically shut down your cpu at a given temperature, but usually you have to enable that setting in the bios first...

I don't think my motherboard has a setting that can be changed for that. It must be on though because I used to crash on P95 often.

Check your airflow in your case as well.It doesn't hurt to add an extra fan or two. I've got a a Coolmaster scout and I added a extra intake 140mm fan below the unused 5.25 drive bays using 3m double sided tape.
Also, remember it is winter, so ambient outside temps will be lower then in the summer.
I know you will never push your chip to prime95 levels, but i did use handbrake for windows and encoded a 1080p mp4 video and that program pegged all my cores at a 100%.
also listen to what the guys in the community have to say, they know. It's great to say hey i overclocked to 4.0 but in reality, 3.6 will work just as good as that for 95% of the applications that use on a daily basis.
Don't get cheap on a cooler above all. A lil money spent on that goes a long way.and make sure you have a good board. I had one of this MSI boards where, yes the mosets caught on fire while overclocking, and it was not a 6 core chip.

I'm not surprised the stock HSF wasn't cutting the cheese. However, it is capable of cooling a 3.6GHz 955 C2 heat machine.

After lapping (it was far from flat), replacing the stock rug of paste with AS5, and moving the AVC fan's thermistor into the path of air (with the fan blowing ONTO the heatsink like it's supposed to), and with an updated bios with qfan that works right, it would peak at 60C and fall to about 58C once the fan wound up. This was that hot summer we just had too. However it got replaced because YES the fan WAS running in excess of 6500 rpm. I seriously kid you not I could hear the computer from OUTSIDE THE BUILDING if I had a window open, and I live on the second story IN TOWN.

Not cool when wanting to fold every now and then and it sounds like Maverick is doing maneuvers in the living room.

FWIW this was exactly the performance I had on the Thermalright XP-120 with the corsair 1700rpm fan.

Enjoy the 212+, it should keep you in the mid 50s.

Yeah, first post! I've got some major heat issues with the AMD 955BE. I am running a 3.6Ghz clock (200x18 @1.4V) on the stock cooler. Based on the overclocking guide I was reading, it said that temps don't matter, and if it gets to hot, the BIOS would shut the computer off automatically before any harm is done.

I found this baloney. I recently discovered that I failed Prime95 in about 1 minute (shutdown), so I check the temps. 70c after 1 minute!! This was insane to me because I had been running this clock for months with no problem. Turns out that I was using Cool&Quiet as a crutch to underclock the system, and reduce apparent normal operating temps. I've now turned that off.

So I ordered some AS5, cleaned the old stuff off which was extremely overapplied, tinted, and applied the paste. I noticed that the surface of the stock cooler was super rough, but I didn't have anything for polishing metal. Temps were still high, so I checked the paste and there wasn't enough on there (covered only the center of the chip), so I wiped and reapplied.

After a few days, my temps are 45c idle (40c idle with no Qfan(Qfan is the BIOS fan controller on ASUS motherboards)), and 64c-65c 100% Large-FFT load. Why so high?

The problem that I have is that my stock HSF can seemly only reach 3500-3800rpm. I know that it is capable of more than that! One time, I shook the computer really hard and the RPMs on the fan reached 4500 (that trick doesn't seem to work anymore), but Qfan quickly adjusted the PWM to compensate or it just slowed down again. With Qfan off and on, it seems to hover in the 3000s. I've heard of the stock coolers reaching 5000s from other people on this forum. Also, the fan is blowing air into the heatsync. Shouldn't it be pulling hot air away, blowing it into the case? It is blowing hot air right onto the CPU!!

If you are wondering about the case temp and case fans: I have 4 case fans that keep the inside a chill 33c (Motherboard temp sensor).

Ambient temps are standard: 69F-72F

My stock HSF blew up to about 5800 yesterday, idk how it is with the quad cores but i imagine they should be able to do that same.

I installed the Hyper212 so that the air blows vertically and out the top. The RAM is really close to the pipes, but I am not too worried because the RAM is covered by heatsyncs. I had to remove one of my 230mm fans (on the side wall) because the 212+ is so huge that the top stuck into the blades of that fan.

I also filled the cracks in the heat pipes with AS5, and tinted the CPU. I then used the middle dot method.

WOW! I am impressed. It idles at 32c and maxes at 45c under P95 test for 40 minutes. This is overclocked to 3.6Ghz!! And it should lower even more after the 200 hour burn in.

Any suggestions on getting to 4Ghz?

I keep getting a CPU fan error when I boot up the computer? Is there a way to disable this, or fix this. The fan is running fan, increasing with temps.

There needs to be a fan plugged into the CPU fan header, or more precisely, it needs to see some kind of signal on the RPM lead. Another possibility is you have your BIOS monitoring another fan input and don't have a fan there anymore.
