955BE temps and performance?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have a PII 955BE.I have done no overclocking in it.It is running on stock fan and my case is old presario.
i have turned on cool'n'quiet in BIOS and my cpu automatically drops to 800MHz.I don't know why this is happening. It is dropping my CPU's performance considerably.When i raise it to its stock speed 3.2GHz with AMD overdrive and restarts my PC it again drops to 800MHz.

And also when i raise its speed to 3.2Ghz it idle temps increase from 41C to 47C and load temps when i play game from 45C to 58C.My fan also starts to spin very quickly and creates a aircraft like loud noise.

Please help me. I am freaking out.
My mobo is Asus M4A78

Cool'n'quiet downclocks your CPU when the computer is idle, it goes back up to 3.2ghz when you're using/doing/playing on your computer.

about the temp, try re-seating your CPU cooler, how do you have your TIM applied?

Edit: I reckon you have a stock cooler installed? It's not really good and you cant really expect low temps with taht cooler, you will have to get an aftermarket one to lower the load temps ^_^

Disabling cool'n'quiet on your bios will prevent your CPu from downclocking to 800mhz

58c is pretty hot

dont use software to overclock
oc through bios

cool & quiet will lower the cpu multiplier and core voltage when idle
first step to oc is disable c&q and c1e

qfan will slow down the fan when temps are cool (under ~45c)
and speed it up when temps are hotter (above 50c)

Thanks, it solved speed problem but temperature is not solved.TIM is pre-applied on my CPU.I have not opened its heatsink once.Do i have to re-apply the TIM.How do i spread it.

For sure remove the stock TIM and replace with something good like AS5 or MX3. When you remove the old stuff, use alcohol to clean both the heatsink and the CPU. Make sure not to leave any finger prints on either as the oil will superheat the CPU. Some guys will recommend the line method on the TIM job, I prefer a BB sized dot myself. Has worked on quads for me for years. Just apply a dot on the cpu and DONT SPREAD IT. Just attach the heatsink and wiggle it around a bit. If you spread it out, you will get air bubbles in there and get less performance. You defintiely need to do this as 58C is WAY to hot for stock

to remove the stock heatsink, unhook the latches, and twist the heatsink about 5º (to free the tim) then lift it off

clean the heatsink and cpu with isopropyl alcohol
wait for it to dry

put a grain of rice to quarter pea sized dot of heatsink compound on the center of the cpu

about like this


place the heatsink on and latch

Huh..this thread helped me as well, thanks for the detail. Mine idles and loads at almost exactly the same temp, so I think I'll have to reseat mine as well.
