A8 6600K fan (heat) problem

Hi there,

I've built a home pc for my mate but i'am confused with fan noise that stock cooler produce. I think it's because of missreading core temps. When I watch video or doing any benchmark temperature runs up to 90C (using easytune6 gigabyte utility) and fan runs at 3.2k RPM which make my ears cry. When I put my hand on the back (right) side of the case where cpu located... I cant feel there any hot or even warm place, so the cpu is cold.. but it's shows 80C temp and fan is runing at max. Please help me with your suggestions.. how can i fix that.

Also core temp doest show any temp and I dont know why. And AMD OverDrive saying that "there is no AMD CPU found on this computer". Btw Windows 7 performance gave 4.8 for aero desktop perfomance (my A4 4000 @ work showing 6.6). What's wrong?

System spec:
A8 6600K @ 3.9 Ghz (stock cooler)
Gigabyte F2A88XM-HD3 ver 3.0 (lastest bios ver. which is F4)
500GB WD Caviar blue Sata3
1x8GB 1600Mhz Kingston KVR
PSU 500W Aerocool Strike-X 80+ Bronze
Case Cooler Master Elite 342 (with front fan)
Win 7 Professional x64

  1. I suggest reseating the cpu cooler AFTER you clean the old thermal paste off and apply a fresh pea sized dot to the middle of the cpu before putting the cooler back on. I sence there is air gaps between the fan and the cpu.
  2. Best answer
    Check this video on how to apply paste i think the pea technique is the best personally.

    So you think that paste was "bad placed" there? This is new box cooler that I put yesterday.

    Hard to tell for sure not sure how you put the paste on but usually high CPU temps are caused by improper installation of the paste + heatsink. Give it a try it it can only help if anything if you haven't used the pea method.
  5. Also I have this kind of problem. http://i57.fastpic.ru/big/2014/0107/ef/dbcda8596dd9ed12ead4f7132d6056ef.gif
    Why it's only 100hz and bandwidth is 1.6GB/s?
  6. I don't think thats anything to worry about since your gpu clock is where its suppose to be. Im not really sure what that 100hz is all about.
  7. Changed motherboard to MSI FM2-A75MA-P33 with latest bios update and all is up and okay now. Temperature is about 40-50C with 1600-2000 RPM and GPU-Z now showing 800Mhz instead of 100. I think topic can be closed now. Thank you.
  8. No Problem happy fragging!
