Help! Sandy Bridge overheating! - Page 11

post #101 of 102
sorry to revive a dead thread (perhaps). i just bought an i7 2600k from newegg and I am having extreme thermal issues as well. I didnt even bother with the stock thermal goo, i went straight for the arctic silver 5 tube. within a few seconds of checking out the new EFI bios, I noticed the fan was reeling at 1700RPM without changing a thing, anything. volts are stock (1.24v cpu), clock speeds are stock (3.4ghz) and the system isnt in a case yet.

I tried a different mounting mechanism with a backplate and spring screws on the stock heatsink (leftover from a previous TRUE 120 and my desktop's extra lga1156 bracket). that also led to thermal shutdown within about 7 minutes just sitting in the BIOS. I then went back to the horribad pushpins and arctic ceramique just try another TIM solution. it appeared that the stock heatsink made good contact with the processor, but still, idling in the BIOS at 70+°C is definitely a defective processor by intel standards. there is no way in hell that a 95w processor is going to be putting that much heat out nominally. there has to be a problem with the IHS not meeting the die itself enough.

I filed for an RMA with newegg already. I am curious if anyone else ran into such extreme temps with a sandy bridge proc at stock speeds.

That does sound like a faulty CPU or something isn't making contact properly with the other surface (CPU surface to base plate of cooler, or vice versa). Also, stop using old pastes and go for the newer ones, you could at least see a slight difference in temps with them (but seeing as you already RMA'ed...). Get some MX-4. But I'd also probably try a new cheap but good cooler like a Hyper 212+ if you got the spare funds.
