Hey guys I recently put together my budget system and just put it together last night. I have a E7200 with a Xigmatek963, The CPU is currently OC'd to 3.8 at 9.5X400 with a 1.35Vcore. My core temps seem really high being at 50c idle and 70c under Load with Prime95. after some google searching it seems like most everyone else is getting temps 10-15c lower them me at load and idle so I am wonder what is up...'
I am using HWMonitor to record temps along with CPUZ for general information. Is the Xigmatek 968 that much worse then the 1283? I used AS5 on the HSF and applied the long bead as according to the Arctic website and even applied another bead on each side of it for good measure.
I am currently at school but when I get home I will post SS's of HWM and CPUZ showing you guys anything I might of forgot to mention but in the mean time, do these temps seem right for my setup? I didnt think my load temps were going to go over 60c
my voltage is 1.35 in the bios but cpuz reports it at 1.32 If ic ant lower the temp i will try lowering the vcore by .1 and running prime 95 till it becomes unstable then brining it back up to the last stable vcore but i doubt at 3.8 it will go much under 1.35 and 1.32 after vdroop
when I get home i will check temps with realtemp and try reseating with only the one bead of AS5 in the middle of the IFS and report back
Ok guys I got realtemp and ran prime95 for just a couple of mintues to see what it would do and the difference between HWMonitor and RealTemp is 10C RealTemp showing 10c cooler at load and idle over HWMonitor. Not I am just not sure what to believe my real temps are at how accurate can these be when they are so far off of each other?
Also In my BIOS my VCore for my CPU is set at 1.35 and CPUZ reports it as 1.32 at Idle and as low as 1.304 while running Prime95. Is this acceptable or is this telling me my PSU just isnt up to par?
I tried lowering the voltage down from 1.35 to 1.325 and it was instantly unstable even under light loads. But i seem to think the reason for the temp increase on HWMonitor has to do with a Tjmax set to 105 instead of 95 giving the temps and inaccurate increase of 10c. so all is well
I am at 3.8G, 400Mhz, 1.33V. Its been 7 weeks and stable. Any cpuv under 1.32 was unstable. CPUz shows ~1.3v, but Easytune and the bios shows 1.33v. My temps are 33c idle and 53c load. The pic below i had Prime95 runnin in the background and my temp was only 40c in easytune.
