Help with x6 + Hyper 212+ Heat Issues

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I am trying to get my overclock stable and I noticed I am getting high temperatures. I have my Phenom II x6 sitting under a Hyper 212+ with AS5 applied (has spread nicely each time I apply a rice-sized portion to it), but while sitting in the BIOS I am getting about 41C, and from what I have read that is probably more like 51C because of the temp bug in the Phenom x6s.

I have tried reseating the cooler twice now and cannot get the temps any lower and it is causing my computer to crash (or at least throttle) when OC'd. Currently I am overclocked to ~4ghz with 1.44v reported in BIOS.

Any tips on what I should try? I am hearing conflicting things on using the Hyper 212 with the x6, so let me know if it is the cooler...

Thanks!

That's very odd, considering;

Your using a decent cooler- at least gives most people much better temps than your getting
You've managed to hit 4GHz on a a low voltage for AMD chips
You've tried reseating, and the curing time on the AS5 wont give the temp drop you need- especially if it's high enough to crash your system.

Regarding the 212 not supporting the X6's, this thread provides a lot of information.

Please provide your ambient temps as well as the fans your running on it and their speeds.
Puny Power!

I read that same thread, so I figured that shouldn't be the issue!

The fans I am using are the stock Coolermaster fan that came with the 212 plus a more generic 120mm fan (may be one that came with my NZXT case....). I believe both fans are running at full speed (for now) at about 2000rpm.

Am I correct about the temp reported issues? Or does the BIOS compensate for that you think?

I feel like there is something goofy going on with my motherboard. I have just been re-testing everything and there are a few things I am noticing. For one, in AMD Overdrive the CPU temp does not seem to be fluctuating even while the CPU core temps are fluctuating. I may try re-flashing the BIOS.

If in doubt, use HWMonitor, compare the core temps and CPUTIN temps. Under load, the CPUTIN temp will be about 10c higher, but Core temperatures are more accurate.

Thanks for the tip, I will get that installed.

Hmmmm again the CPU temp isn't budging in HWMonitor either. Individual cores are fluctuating as expecting, but core is stuck.

Edit: I should probably also note that the core temps are typically in the acceptable 24C range

Sometime you need higher voltage on the 1055T to stable out at 4.0ghz.

If it helps, I have deltas on my Hyper 212, just one right now not push pull anymore like my sig says, too loud, but anyways, when Im at 1.425v or higher and run stress testing it pushes the 60c threshhold and I usually end the test. Thats why Im at 3600mhz at 1.29 right now. But I idle at 17-21c with cool n quiet enabled. To be honest the Hyper 212's are great for x3 and x2's but x4 or higher is really pushing them. Im dying for a Megahalems right now!

That's about right for a air cooler. Any higher then 4.0-4.2 and you have to go liquid.
I'm at 32c idle, 51-59c load. We're good to 65c+ by default.
