i7-950 Temperatures too high? (I think so...)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Okay so a couple days ago I upgraded my Mobo, Ram, Cpu.

I am running an i7-950.

I am using the stock heat sink & fan, and getting around 55 degree idle temps, and I know that is over ridiculous sometimes when I am doing simple **** like 20% load I get 90 degree temps!

Any idea whats going on.


Note: My whole setup is not in a case, my mobo is sitting on my desk only thing cooling the CPU is the heat sink and fan, other than an 80mm fan near my 16x PCIE slots.

Wow. There is something wrong, definitely. Those kind of temps are impossible, especially on stock speeds, even on the stock HSF. Try reseating your heatsink.

BTW, how much thermal compound did you use? Cause using too much reserves its effect

Stock heat sink and fan so whatever was on the fan/heat sink was what I used.....


So reseat the heat sink and fan, and I dont have any thermal compound lying around so just use the stuff thats already on the cpu?
