Unusually High Temps 1100T

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Greetings,
I'm new to this forum but not to building PC's. I recently build a system with the following specs:
AMD 1100T
ZALMAN CNPS7000C-AlCu
ASUS M4A79XTD EVO 790X
CORSAIR|750W PSU
GeForce GTX 560 Ti
8GB CORSAIR Vengeance

Currently CPUID HWM is registering the following values at idle (ambient 73F).
TMPIN0: 40C
TMPIN1: 36C
Core 0-5: 32
Vid TMP0: 43C

At load (Homefront) I see the follwoing values.
TMPIN0: 58C
TMPIN1: 37C
Core 0-5: 54
Vid TMP0: 61C

I figured that my sink wasn't sitting flush so I removed it, torqued down the mobo bracket, cleaned up the arctic silver, applied a new (very thin layer) and re-secured the sink. The temps remain the same. These temps seem awfully high and from what I researched the CPU's max temp is 62C which I can easily hit with the case door in place. I am not OC'd. Is there something I'm missing? Do I need to consider going water cooled?
Thanks in advance!

Well, you did put a really cheap heatsink on a 6 core CPU. The stock heatsink is probably better than the one you're using to cool it.

Damn. Really? Good to know. I feel like an old man in here. I used to build Athlon 1GHZ systems with water cooling 10 years ago. The Zalman had decent specs on a last build but I suppose it may be a big under spec'd for this build? I couldn't help but notice that the CM Hyper 212+ seems to be the sink of choice? Should I get that or get a PnP water setup and call it a day. Here's a pic of my case I built in 99'. It was a full tower server case I rescued from the trash. Installed the window and hit it with some PPG paint leftover from a C4 Vette. I love it too much to upgrade. I can't believe 10 years later the ATX platform is still alive and well.

That cooler is recommended for Phenom II CPUs up to 95W

It's a decent cooler, but definitely not for a 6 core setup. It would actually probably even have trouble cooling an x3 chip.

Your best bet is going with a decent air cooling, or going water. It's entirely up to you.
post #6 of 21
Yep,that cooler is not enough.I just did a 1100t build with the new Zalman 9900max and I have yet to see temps over 45c-ambients 28-34c and no overclock,this in a Fractal R3 with low-flow quiet fans.

I guess I run the stock sink for now, return this sink to Newegg and buy something better. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
Thanks!

Well, here's my two favorite coolers. They're valued really well and really easy to install.

Air: Noctua DH-14. Great air cooler, one of the best on the market as far as air goes.

Water(without the hassle): Corsair H70. I've installed this cooler in two systems so far. Intel and AMD. Both incredibly easy, they just take a few minutes of your time. It's a water cooler without all of the hassle and extra parts. It works incredibly well and to me, it's the best cooler you can get without going "real" watercooling.

With their pre-applied TIM my i7-2600k @ 4.5ghz at idle sits around 29-31c, and load never gets higher than 45c.

if you are planning to OC your 1100 - i hope so and you can easily OC it to 4000Mhz, you should go for champs like noctua D14, thermalright silver arrow, archon,prolimatech mega and so on..
