i7 950 overclock temps - Page 2

post #11 of 19
I think you have a really high vcore for the clock, you sure it isn't stable with less vcore? Could help temps too if your not going to OC further

Btw dont take the cooler off to see how the thermal compound has spread, you'll get air bubbles. If you do it I think you should apply new again lol

I hit 74C on hottest core w/ 4.3Ghz, those temps are a bit too high.

Too much paste IMO


Pea sized is a lie, peas are damned big, you want to use under half the volume of that, like about 2mm diameter blob in the middle.

Don't swirl it to spread it either, moving the heat sink excessively can create air bubbles I believe. Just tighten the block firmly and the loading heat of the CPU will spread it out over time, that can take up to 200 hours of heating and cooling cycles, but it should improve temps with time.

These instructions are for Artic Silver 5, but should work for any:

I did the pre-tinting first, which seemed to greatly lower the "break-in" period.
Also, shut off Hyper-threading, you don't need it for gaming, and it'll lower your temps alot.

First of all, too much paste, second, you can try disabling HT as that will lower your temps as well, but please fix that paste, read up on how to apply proper paste as you put in a little too much bud. Keep us updated on those temps.

thanks for the ac5 guide, although i do not use ac5, but might just give it a try tonight!

as of ht, i guess i dont really need it, i do a lot of CAD FEA and CFD stuff, they do use quite a bit of cpu power, but not sure if they utilise ht or not i turned it off before, and didnt see much difference in temps, if anything at all actually... but maybe thats because i didnt apply the tim properly in the first place, will try mess about with it again tonight
