Help! Sandy Bridge overheating! - Page 5

post #41 of 102
Thread Starter 
wait whats the stock voltage supposed to be when running prime95 (Like when that turbo boost kicks in and it runs at full speed)?

I'm flat broke, bought all this and a 42 inch lcd for my monitor. After hearing rave reviews on how the 2500k stock cooler was good, I didnt think I was going to run into this problem. I mean if it is the cooler, I guess I have no choice but to snag a loan just to buy a HSF.

Pretty sure that stock heatsink is just plain junk.

Go for this, you can't possibly not afford it.

I noticed my CPU Vcore jumps to 1.25v when under load and 1.0 idle, is it supposed to be 1.25v?

Please god dont get a loan for a simple heatsink.
you would have been better off getting a new GPU instead of that 42"
Anything over 30" is stupid for a PC. The resolutions just dont look right when its that big.

There's your problem. Shouldn't be anywhere -near- the size of a pea. Also, those pushpin coolers are a PAIN in the rear, make sure you're getting it properly latched down. It took me over an hour to install one once upon a time.

You need to go for bb to 1.25 bbs in size. (A bb is 4.5mm IIRC)

Oh, and 1.25 at load, with 1.0 at idle is normal. That's speedstep and the C-states working to conserve power at idle. When the CPU clocks up, turbo comes on, it powers up to 1.25v. That's how modern CPUs get insanely low power numbers at idle. We're talking single digits.

Don't take any insult I'm just curious: Do you have a stable job? I mean you got yourself a pretty nice build with the 2500k, 1TB drive so I figure you'd be able to shell out just another $30 to protect your chip investment!

This is a pretty good article that shows how thermal paste spreads for different ways of applying it.

Make sure the heatsink is seated right.

Seriously? Am I the only person in the world that doesnt have an issue with attaching those heatsinks?
You put some TIM on the CPU and then snap one clip in, then the one opposite and then the remaining two. Dont even have to remove the mobo or anything.
