Unusual High temperatures.. Tags: Heatsinks Cases CPUs Overclocking Last response: February 16, 2010 10:14 PM in Overclocking Share xaviertwav February 16, 2010 7:45:42 PM hi i built a system recently, the specs are as follows.. CPU: Phenom II X4 955 3.2Ghz (stock AMD cooler) RAM: A Data DDR3 1066 MB: Gigabyte GA-MA785GGT-UD3H AGP: Gugabyte HD 4870 1GB Case: random case. After doing some reading on the forum i think my cpu idle/load temperatures are really high. it idles at 45C and 60-62C underload (prime95) i have tried to vaccum and clean the fan and reapplied thermal paste properly i.e. use cleaner to clean heatsink and cpu before reapplying. I am using Akasa 450 silver compound. Currently i have 2 80mm fans sucking air out from rear, 1 80mm side fan sucking air in, and 1 120mm frontal fan sucking air in. i am really bothered by the high temperature i bought a new cooler (OCZ vandette 2) but its too large it wont fit in my case but even with the vandetta 2 running in an open case environment it still idles at 40C?

Have you tried to re-seat it with the vendetta? Make sure you dont use to MUCH thermal paste. Beginners tend to over-apply. xaviertwav February 16, 2010 9:57:19 PM i've only apply a thin layer, as advised by the forum members. i just cant think of anything i;ve done wrong =/ i have to resolve to undervolting the CPU now for a lower temp Related resources Unusually high core temperatures while idle, frequent turning off. - Forum Getting unusually high idle + load temperatures - Forum AMD FX-6300 Overclocking Unusual Temperatures - Forum Temperature's unusually high, noisy laptop fan. - Forum Core i7 & Coolermaster V8; Unusual temperatures. - Forum Can't find your answer ?
