1090T + H70 = 60C+ Prime95 temps?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I picked up a Corsair H70 to help keep my 1090T cool while I went for 4Ghz. I'm currently stable at 3.9GHz @ 1.46v, however I'm concerned about my Prime temps. My cores will hit a max of around 53C on certain FFT sizes, which if you add the average 10C offset to Thubans makes for a 63C socket temperature. That definitely seems high compared to reviews I've seen, but I'd like a second, third, and however many opinions are posted in here.

Wondering if maybe I just need to swap out the stock fans.

For comparison's sake, idle is 18C on the cores, meaning 28C estimated socket.

You're at the max recommended safe temp for phenoms, Stop putting it under load until you get the temps down.

I would suggest to reseat your H70 before you replace the fans.

Well first of all voltage seems a little too high for 3.9, that will get your temps up real fast. Also better fans would help, but I'm guessing you are running a little too hot. Def reseat and see how that goes.

I have it set to 1.40v, but HWmonitor sees 1.46v, not sure what the deal is there.

Probably some sort of over voltage or something in your Bios. If you can find out how to lower that it should help, or just lower your volts to around 1.36 or something and see what it runs in Windows using HW Monitor. Should be enough to bring temps down 4-6 degrees, but you should reseat your H 70 first. Maybe its just not quite getting full contact, or maybe too much TIM.

I took off the heatsink and the stock thermal pad looked terrible. I cleaned it up and put some new TIM on, we'll see how that goes.

I can't find any explanation for the voltage discrepancy. I've tried setting it to 1.40v in BIOS, and 1.40v in PhenomMsrTweaker. In both cases, HWmonitor and OCCT read 1.46v. Which is fine, as it's probably a stable voltage for my target 4.0GHz, but I don't want to try that until I figure out why my temps are higher than most H70 users at 4.2GHz.

Ive heard from some people that the stock TIM is excessive sometimes on an H70, even though its great TIM, too much of any kind will kill your temps. Ive never owned a Gigabyte board, even though my next one may be, so I cant help you on the Bios and your volt settings, but see if the reseating helps.
