Help! Sandy Bridge overheating! - Page 7

post #61 of 102
Thread Starter 
Ok, this is what I'll do, I'll take off the heatsink, take a pic, take a pic of how much I put on, then take a screen cap of the temps.

@ Lost, they didnt have any at microcenter or I wouldve. But the speeds arent supposed to be amazingly faster, just a few mbs, I even seen a few reviews where the adata was faster than the vertex so I dunno.

It's not just a little bit too much..

Try a significantly smaller amount. I bet 100% that too much TIM or an improper mount is your problem.

Wait, wait. 70C? That's not 'overheating'! These chips are just fine all the way up to ~90-95 man. It's certainly not great but it's not a problem at -all-.
depends on the thermal compound used.
IC Diamond 7 requires a Pea Size for the best result.

Snypa, I feel you need to use a little more paste than that; the spread (at least in my preference) should reach out to maybe 3cm away from each edge of the chip. Still, this seems like it's just the stock heatsink that is horrible.

I've tried all amounts. Honestly its not the paste. I've already tried more paste than what was in that pic and the temps are EXACTLY the same no matter what. Either a probe error or extremely bad HSF. Either way these parts are going back and being replaced with a new batch.

The copper contact plate on the stock HSF, at least for my Bloomfield is only 1" in diameter-and on my Nehalem will not cover the whole HS on the CPU....for a CPU IHS that is 1.5"+ on a side.

I'm still stumped why the OP should be overheating at stock with the stock HSF. I think a call/email to Intel would be warranted.

what the hell pust the paste on whole base of cooler
when you will change for aftermarket heatsink cover whole chip with very little paste, that almost but almost you see the chip

No wonder why your temps are so high. Its because its only contacting the middle of the chip!
Your setups fine, its the heatsink thats obviously crap.

Do you hear the stock heatsink fan speed up at those temps?!
You might have to enable smartfan in the bios or something!

@Lost-bio, I already suspected that and I did 2 lines, no improvement. I had prime running for the past 2 1/2 hrs and the temps was at 85c, but no failures or nothing so it's whatever. I'll just run them as is now then take them back in a few days when this storm blows over. I ran prime with it at 4.2ghz and it was stable, but before I did that I had prime running for about 30 mins at stock, same temps.
