Can I live with these temps? - Page 3

But even regardless of that, the CPU heatsink itself is dead cold all around during load, including the heatpipes. I'm no expert, but the heatpipes should conduct heat, and the ones on my GPU and MB are all usually either warm (idle) or very hot (load), meaning they work. Maybe I'm wrong, I dunno. But seems to make sense. Not to mention the fact I screwed the damn thing so tight it should be warmer than the cpu



Another cooler it is then. Just unsure what to get. Very limited selection here. I got the mugen2 as it came highly recommended and, more importantly, it was available. Zalman, artic cooling and scyhte is pretty much all the air cooling I can get here.
I also have thermaltake big typhoon left from a core2duo build, but no way to attach it AFAIK.
Okay you had 90c at room temp of 25c, now you have same room temp of 25c and your cpu is at 75-80c on load? thats about normal,and dont trust the idle temps.
Also why dont you show us a screen shot with Real Temp, and with CPU-Z, I don't know what you are showing in the OP

Two solutions:
1) lap your heatsink and cpu until they are mirror flat.
or
2) Just use more paste. Too much paste might not be ideal for heat transfer, but at least it's better than having a air gap which provides ZERO heat conduction. Do that for now until you decide to lap or RMA.

There is a difference between 'load' and p95 stressing. Some call load the temps upon bootup. They are always some higher than idle.

Yes dont worry too much about idle temps. The sensors are less accurate at lower temps.

Thats way too much work, and you should NEVER suggest anyone to glop on the paste.

I suggest you do it right, or let it sit. No reason to try to cobble things and cause more issues than what you have.

When I say load, I mean prime95 small FFT load. In standard usage it rarely goes over 65-70C

Here's the detailed info:




This is now, under load, and is maybe 2-3C less than yesterday (before remounting and cleaning).


oh and BTW, my location is Croatia. So if you know any good shops here, let me know
But seriously, ordering a 1kg heatsink online and paying for that shipping would be a waste of money. So I'm stuck with the very limited choice here.
Also found Cooler PROLIMATECH Megahalems Rev. B so that's also an option..
here's a list of my choices if anyone wants to check out

Thats looks like a nice CPU you have there!!
Also I did not know that the 930 could do a higher multi than 21, thats awesome.
I think you are at the limit of your cooler, and your case. These 1366 CPU's run hot and most People that OC have case's with a lot more ventilation, try getting more air into that case, most Overclockers/extreme gamers have cases with 5 or more fans, and or water cooling.
You should be looking for a case or start reading up on the case mods to mod your case and adding some fans! Or you could look in the water cooling section and maybe go that route, but either way if you going to be doing overclocking with the i7's then you need to keep them cooooooool
80c wont kill your i7 and 90c will not kill it,I just would not want to run it above 70-75c for everyday use. and don't worry about those idle's......

So you think these temps are tolerable?

You're right about the case; I was looking for a quality case that was as silent as possible (I'm into sound/music production the i7 being my DAW PC, so I need my pc to be fast and quiet), got the NZXT hush, which seemed nice at the time. What I didn't consider at the time, however, was that all the acoustic foam inside the case, combined with only 2 big low rpm fans would be an issue when it comes to cooling. Not to mention the case being anything but quality designed, with sharp edges and some questionable design decisions.

As far as water cooling is concerned, the only choices I have here are the H50/H70 from Corsair, which I fear mostly for their noise levels, but also the ever present danger of giving my cpu a bath.
Also, from what I've read, they need to be positioned to blow air into the case, even though their radiator is mounted at the back of the case.

wrong, i had an H50 for over a year exhausting heat out the back of my case, it runs perfectly fine that way

We have found that for the best CPU cooling results, you will want to have the fan positioned behind the radiator pulling air from outside the case and pushing it through the radiator.

Still it's good to know it works both ways. Is the pump/fan audible while inside the case?
