Thinking my temps are not correct..

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
So, the CPU is not the CPU in my sig rig to be clear, the one I am working with right now is an AMD Phenom II X2 560 Black Edition Callisto 3.3GHz

To be exact, its this:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103887


Now, the heatsink already came with applied thermal paste, so I was like sweet and slapped it together... Its been in use for a while now, doing some heavy gaming, but no temp checks were ever taken.. until we decided to O.C it, so we can Intel Burn to see how much room for overclocking we had with the stock cooler, and we were shocked to find we had none..

The temps we got were around 68C at max load, and if I am correct, around 75C is max for the chip, and even if its not, I wouldn't want to O.C it.. So I was like damn, so we actually underclocked it and lowered the voltages and clock speeds..

Right now the CPU is running I think at 1.2v @ 2.5 Ghz and our temps at max load are around 60C..


--------

Some things to now..

-Unlocked to a Quad Core, no problems with stability or anything..
-Came stock at 3.4Ghz
-Stock cooler is being used
-We have an excellent push pull fan system right now, a total of 6 fans.. great airflow..
-Ambient temps are around 65F never hotter than 70F.
-Using HW monitor to track my temps.

--------



Please don't tell me to buy aftermarket cooling.

Thanks for the replies and help

TL;DR- My temps are too high, even when underclocked on an unlocked dual to quad CPU using stock cooler.

Real temp does not work with my CPU I don't think.. It just says 0C the whole time... I cannot find one to work my with my CPU other than HW Monitor

anyways, running prime with hwmonitor right now.

Yea, just use HW monitor then, it seems consistent with RealTemp

Oh, that CPU temp is a no-no if you want accurate temps, mine undershoots by 7 C compared to the hottest core and some people's overshoots. You should really go by the core temps listed there, but looks like the sensors are faulty and you're having the same problem with Real Temp. Did you check to see if the sensors worked before you unlocked?

I don't know what you mean by sensors, I am somewhat new to O.Cing..

Yeah realtemp comes right out and tells me its not compatible before it even starts up..

62C limit?

Should I further underclock? What can I do..?

Do you guys think its the thermal paste? Should I apply my own, or is what AMD supplied me with sufficient..

I don't want to run it over the max lol, or even close to max at that.. I should probably invest in aftermarket cooling huh...
