2500k load temp over 80C!!! - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Thats way too hot. Those are the temps I was getting with the POS stock intel cooler before I got my water block in.

Did the system come pre-overclocked? I would take it back and let them deal with it.

As others have said, the vcore setting might be set too high.

Possibly the heatsink wasn't seated properly, or someone forgot to apply a thermal paste.

Either way, since you bought it I'm going to assume that you're probably not yet qualified to be taking it apart to find out, and since it has a warranty, I would contact the people you got it from or send it back. They should have done load testing on it before selling it to you.

And wPrime isn't nearly as stressful as something like LinX or IBT would be, which I would assume would cause your PC to power off from reaching maximum safe values.
Unreasonable maybe, but still well within the limits of the processor.

Within the limits -- arguably. If OP is using stock heatsink and stock voltages, no reason he should be hitting 80c. If he is using aftermarket heatsink and/or overclocked -- still no reason unless Vcore is 1.45+ and speeds in excess of ~4.8GHz. I say Vcore is too higher, heatsink is not seated properly, too much/too little TIM.

I agree, something is obviously not right. Just saying they could, legitimately, say that it's within spec for the processor ifthey didn't want to fix it.

well considering the warranty.... just run ibt like 500 times till it cooks if they dont want to listen to you, maybe its on auto vcore and overclock.... idk need more specs

Alright, problem solved, as people guessed the cooler wasn't properly in place. I didn't want to touch it (because usually whatever I try to repair I just end up breaking more ), but since the company is so slow in doing anything, and I can't wait for days without a computer, I started fumbling around with the cooler and got it in a bit more tightly.

Temps for individual cores now show 27 / 40 in SpeedFan, ~43 / ~55 in CoreTemp (idle / full wPrime load). Dunno which ones are correct, doesn't really matter, I'm just satisfied that they are now in the safe range. If you agree these readings are ok, then I'm not going to mess with the cooler any more because I seriously suck at messing with things.

Thanks again for the answers!

I'm still curious about a couple of things, though. In BIOS hardware monitor screen the CPU temp showed 45C. (Quite a bit of CPU load in BIOS for some reason, made the temp go up to 85C when the cooler wasnt properly placed.) When I pressed down on the cooler carefully, the temperature went down from 45C to 40C. So I guess the cooler still isn't very well placed - or is this normal?

I also find it strange that changing the CPU fan speed does nothing to the temperature, idle or load. There's a physical knob that I can turn to set the CPU fan from ~1000 rpm to ~2000 rpm (according to BIOS, I get no fan readings in SpeedFan), but I see no effect on temperature, just makes a lot more noise. Perhaps another sign that the cooler it's not as well placed as it should be? Or is this normal too? (It's Scythe Yasya as I mentioned earlier.)

Yes usually there is quite a bit of CPU load within the BIOS (although I forget exactly why, I just remember hearing that that a while back)

Also the fact that you pressing down on it makes the temperatures go down doesn't really sound right... because the cooler should be held down with enough pressure so that it really cant be pressed further down onto the CPU.
