Help i7 2600k overheating

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
This is really frustrating for me, I got i7 2600k not long ago with Asus P8P67 Pro Board.
I've heard a lot of good reviews about this from many different websites. Like how good the low voltage/temperature overclockability this one has, blah blah blah.
But the fact is that after putting it to merely 4.3 Ghz @ 1.27 v, the temperature goes to 72 C with Prime 95; and when I overclock it to 4.5 Ghz @ 1.32 v, the temperature goes to 78 c on Prime 95. I have a pretty decent cooler, Thermaltake Frio with fan speeds at medium; with a full tower Antec DF-85. I've tried reinstall HS&F on my MB and cleaned and reapplied Artic Silver 5, with no success.
Is it just me, or is the hype about Sandy Bridge Processors just not real?

From what I have seen from the many SB members on here, the temps are quite real. They run quite cool. I would say you have a bad mount, but you said that you remounted it. You sure you didn't add excessive or too little of TIM?

Yeah I am sure I didn't add too much or too little, I double checked after mounting it the second time, same temperature.
Perhaps I got a bad chip.

Less likely that you got a bad chip and more likely that the HS isn't mounted well.

How much arctic are you putting on?
Is it in the horizontal or vertical direction on the chip?

what temps do you get at stock speeds and voltage?

Put some better fans on that cooler. Those crappy 120x25 fans aren't going to work.

I would say you need more mount pressure of the heat sink

Maybe look into getting some Yate Loon fans. Cheap and quite effective.

Well, I had same HS&F on my old i7 920 D0 stepping overclocked to 4.2Ghz at 73 c max, I doubt it's the HS mounting since I remounted after the initial high temperature.
Arctic was put on a dot in the middle, I took it out after the 1st time and it was a thin layer covering the CPU no overspills or anything like that.
@default setting
Idle 33c
Load 55c
