Temps not going down for 955 BE with CM Hyper 212+...what gives?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I noticed my temps were going higher than usual. My idle temps use to be like 26C now its 32-33C. When I run my games (ps2 emulator) it use to cap out at most:37C and my GC emulator use to cap around 43-44. Now its a little higher.

I will add that I live in SC, and its getting A LOT warmer here now, average day time temp is 81 Degrees opposed to 32-40 degrees when I got the 955/CM Hyper 212+. Maybe that can be the problem

Anyway, I took my computer out, dusted it real good, wiped the old thermal paste off with some 90% Alcohol and reapplied thermal paste, temps didn't go down a bit.

What gives?

VRM heat spreading towards CPU, because VRM heat is not getting any cooling.
Not only would this contribute toward the heat, it is dangerous to run 4+1 unheatsinked VRM with 125W processor especially overclocked. And with ASUS' non low RDS VRMs they can get very hot.
Adding some MOSFET heatsinks & active mosfet cooling would not only help but be much much safer.

Probably to do with the raising temperatures. Fitted a 212+ in my budget rig today and it's performing great. Those temps are nice, anyway.

Hmm I thought so...I can add that my room is pretty damn warm in the spring/summer.

Well, you've said your temps have gone from 26 to 32-33, so 6-7 above average, there may be some other small factors but I'd say that the ambient temperature is going to be the most obvious one.

Once again if you haven't paid attention to my posts, heat from VRMs having to push an overclocked 125W and being a 4+1 unheatsinked, may be spreading towards the CPU socket. Due to complete lack of cooling in that area (CM Hyper 212+ blows no air to VRMs unlike stock cooler) the heat doesn't radiate effectively at all. This doesn't only add to CPU heat, it is very unsafe. And I know those MOSFETs run very hot, they are traditional and not low RDS. You should at least add some aftermarket MOSFET cooling such as Enzotech's MOS-C1.

I'm going to say this: FFXII on my PS2 emulator use to run @ 36C max, it went up a staggering 10C and now maxes out at 46C.

Somethings amiss here gentlemen. Also, XD, I never added that before, why didn't anyone say this to me before about CM Hyper 212+? I wouldn't have bought it if I knew that...

I opened the window to my room, everything has gotten a little cooler, and my idle temps went down from 33C to 28C. I really suspect that the climate change affects your core temps.

Guys...do you think I put the fan on the heatsink the wrong way? Maybe that is it?

no it's just the ambient temp, the main culprit is the weather so don't worry about it, my pc runs 5C hotter than 2 weeks ago so yea... I live in Georgia and it's getting hot air even though we're not even in spring yet...
