i7 950 @ 85C - Page 2

post #11 of 15
the chips have built in features to protect themselves. It could be a bad sensor tho??? either way teh hyper is a good buy and will help non the less

i too got these temps with stock hsf on my i7...but i just undervolted 120mv and now the temps dont go over 75 degrees.............to op try undervolting as much as possible...its the best cost effective solution to heat problems........

i too tried reseating numerous times and using different methods of applying tim...but no use...finally saw my stock volts in bios and i was shocked,for just 3.2ghz it was running at a whopping 1.34 volts....so i lowered it down and the temps became manageable......but never got to know why my mobo or my proccy was having so high stock volts(so i presumed it might be my ****ty mobo....and i have checked in cpu-z too and the bios and cpu-z readings dont differ much)..............anybody have any explanation for that..........
sorry for going offtopic....

85C reading in software will be below Intel's Tcase rating. 100C Tjmax would equal their rated Tcase. Either way its too hot for stock clocks, poor contact from a bad mount, bad TIM, bad fan? Forcing the fan speed to manual 100% in BIOS would also help idle temps. Lowering voltage will help the most.
