Idle temp still high?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
my core are idling at 38c/34/36/34 (around there)
i was at 4ghz went to 3.5ghz so i can lower voltage. i went from 1.3v to 1.09v.
but idle temp is the same. but intel burn it is 15c cooler.

ambient is 26c about.

I don't have too much experience with i7's, but my old QX9650 had it's temps stuck at certain points. Maybe your core's just aren't reporting correctly. Either way, I would only worry about your load temps.

Heat transfer happens much more quickly with larger temperature differentials. The loading temps are really what's important - between 3.8 and 4.0 my load changes 12C. Idle is exactly the same.

Just my setup, though.

yeah weird idle and load temp at stock speed. with 1.1v is the same as when it was 3.5ghz at 1.11v maybe 2 or 3c better at load.

HT off would probably help a lot. but i like it on more =X
