Edit: Getting to 4.2 Ghz stable - Page 2

post #11 of 59
If this was my rig, the first thing I would do is reseat the heatsink.

By the way, I also get the "Performance power management..." error. I believe it is due to the fact that I have disabled all of the power saving features in the BIOS.

Also, if you want a quick and easy way to view BSOD error codes, try BlueScreenView...

With a CPU load of less than 10%, why is the VRM temp almost 190 deg F? Do the NVidia cards run that hot at idle as well?

My cards at at 69c and 78c when I restart my PC, I'm running two 26" monitors and a 46" TV. My room is pretty small and it gets hot very fast.

Do you think I should just reset all the settings, upgrade my mobo BIOS and overclock all over again?

I enabled speed step and my temps went down to 67c when idle but I just disabled it and the temps are back to 81c idle.

btw what are normal idle temps for an i7 920 at 4.0 ghz, if I remember correctly about 50/60c right?

my idle cores i7 920 @! 4GHz are in high 30's c
I dont pay much attention to idle as much as load.
at load Prime blend 58c, linX 63c @ 4GHz.

I dont know a normal temp, it depends on ambient & airflow..etc

mine aircooled

WOW!

I definitely need to re-seat then. Even with having a small room, I think 80c is ridiculous. How are you cooling your i7?

I think I'll also reset everything in the bios and oc it again. Do you mind sharing what oc setting you're using with your i7, is it a D0?

Are all of your fans running? What's your ambient temperature?

My 920 @ 4.0 GHz runs rather warm. My ambient temperature is 22C, and my CPU idles at 40-44C. You really don't want load temps any higher than 80C (85 max), if you can help it. You might want to check your voltages, and make sure none are set too high. My BIOS settings are in my signature if you want something to compare.

Also, if you don't have a need for Hyper-Threading, you can disable that for about a 10C temp drop at load.

And, yes, as I said before, try a reseat.

Unless you have a real need to run the CPU full tilt all the time, leave SpeedStep enabled. Otherwise, that's like keeping your car floored all the time, even when stopped at a light. When the load requires it, the CPU will run at full speed.

Right click my computer / manage /+ event viewer / +Windows logs / System /

Scroll through Date & Time for error , double clik error for info.

Hey Thank you so much! I really appreciate it. I'm about to update my BIOS and then reseat my megahalems.

I'll check back tomorrow with my results.

UPDATE: Opened up the side of my case to unplug and found the main reason for 80c idle temps, MY CPU FAN WAS DEAD!

Man am I glad my cpu didn't fry. I just cleaned everything out and about to pick up a new cpu fan. Speaking of which can someone recommend me a good 120x25 cpu fan (price doesn't matter). My old one was a Scythe S-flex, and I want something more powerful but nothing crazy like a Delta.

Thanks for all the help.
