i7 950 Megahalem temp (again)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Sorry for posting same question 2 times but atleast now im able 2 post full load temps.
System:
I7 950@ 3.07ghz HT on
Asus P6X58D-E (Nothing changed in bios)
Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600mhz 2x2gb
Megahalem Rev.B with 2x CM Blade Master 2000rpm fans
Corsair TX850w
CM 690 II

Used thermal paste wich i got with megahalem and atm in case only haw 2 fans.

So is these temps good for my CPU becuz with time i will want to overclock it a bit?And since this is my 1st high end system im a bit paranoid if i put all parts right.

Well dont know what u want answered. Mite want to lower the cpu volts. My 930 @ stock needs 0.95 volts.
Need to put a load on cpu. The cpu tho can handle 100c . On idle dose not matter. Load is what counts.

No cant damage it lower volt can make it unstable But thats why we stress it to make sure its stable.
Get Linx cpu stress and prime 95.
Get core temp to monitor temps.
GO in bios turn on Line load correction on.
GO to volts. And i say to start try 1 volt or 1.0000
Looking @ yous Pic volts are @ 1.12
My 930 is a 21X133 = 2.8 I dont use an even multiplier= unstable for the I7 x58 chips(what you got)
@ 3.2 i need 1.0 volts i think , Cant find notepad.
Please before anything Look And find cmos reset. In case u change bios setting and pc dose not boot. I got same Motherboard as u. Look @ the Back of Pc. Where the I/O plate is. Where u plug mouse keyboard and other devices on back . Look @ top of it Under the keyboard, Little pin hole Press that and will reset the setting in the bios back to stock . The info is power.
ok Your chip is 3ghz. I Never ran 3 ghz. I did 2.8 3.2 3.6 3.8 4.0 4.2 All ghz.
I got pad of paper with all loads temps and volts. Blah blah.
Run linx now and watch temps. The load temp should never go past 90 deg C.
Put load on it . ANd look @ CPUZ (google it) and look @ volts @ load.
Try lowering the volts till it bsod (blue screen of death) Or error comes up . Then Bump volt +1bump and stress.
For Fast stressing. Do 10 mins then try lower volts and stress.
Then if u think you found the volts you like stress longer and do prime 95 too.
Well good luck.

I've got i7 950 and Megahalems to cool it down.

You're temps look like they might be bit (about 10°c +/- 2°c) higher than mine, especially @ stock. I'd recommend you to replace the thermal paste, for eg. I used MX2. Remember to use very little, try to cover the entire CPU yet very thin layer.

Undervolting did very little for me, got few degrese down but the time finding the right volts wasn't worth it. As I mentioned earlier, I'd check out the TIM and possible the airflow in the case it self. And for me it was really important to make the Megahalems horizontal instead of vertical.

But than again, room ambient does matter, its about 22-24°c in my room.

Well any new paste is good But spreading it over it 1st is a bad idea, You get air bubbles in past and drives up temps. rice gran size in middle and as u push down on cooler turn it 15deg bothways to spread it, Never lift up because air pockets will form. temps in every pc is different case fans cooler paste and air temp all vary.

For paste mx-2 mx-3 ocz freeze.

Just keep the temps under 80c
iirc my old 920 under my Megashadow was 67c load @ 4Ghz so that might give you a rough idea.

This. My old 920 loaded at 69c @4 GHz at ~1.3v.
