Intel i7 930 @ 4.21GHz and coolermaster V8 running at 68C idle! help?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So i overclocked my pc too much earlier to 4.21Ghz i only wanted around 3.8 to 4 but since i didnt know what i was doing i accidently ramped it up a bit...
i was getting 68C idle and on prime95 it was at 100C i quickly closed prime95 and reset my bios to safe settings but ive noticed im idling around 51/52 at 2.40Ghz? whats going on? why is it at 2.4 to start with and with a large cooler like that why is it soo hot?

Did you remove the plastic film over the base? Also, did you apply the right amount of thermal grease?

I only downloaded CPU-Z to do the overclock so i have no idea what the temp was before, ive decided to reseat it tommorow and im also going to buy windows 64-bit aswell.
My GPU is now running at 70c idle with the new 266 update so im back dating it now to see if that helps. which might cool down the cpu a tad aswell.

70c idle?! Your accidental OC may have done more damage than you originally thought. Are you sure you reset to factory defaults?

The first thing i could think of for your cpu is that auto volt was on, had the same problem with my 960 running way to hot and that fixed it.

I'd check on the just to make sure it's turned off but im unsure of your graphics cards
