E8400 temps , too high ? Tags: CPUs Last response: July 26, 2008 12:21 AM in CPUs Share sidereus July 25, 2008 6:38:20 PM hi , I just assembled my new rig and now I am some test with it . So here is my temps after running prime95 for 1 hour I decided to do some tests because I tried to play a game and after 15 mins everything stopped and the screen went black...the fans kept spinning but nothing appeared on the screen and from time to time i receive weird errors like : your program must close ....blablabla send report or not ? ...you know...these kind of errors just to add here are my specs : intel E8400 heatsink : ocz vendetta ( maybe i misplaced my heatsink, this may cause the high temps ?) memory : xms2 ddr2-800 4gb ( 2x 2gb) gfx card : hd 4850 mobo : asus p5q-pro ( p45) thanks for your time More about : e8400 temps high alex_oneill2006 July 25, 2008 7:47:46 PM Hey mate, they seem pretty hot..................... i have my e8400 running at 4.0Ghz on air, and it barely hits 62.......
