This doesn't look good temp-wise. (i7-930)

While idle it ran hot, figured stock cooler wasn't doing its job even at stock speed. Got myself a Thermalright Ultra-120X with an extra fan to have push-pull config. It would still get very high at stock speeds and overclocked in Prime 95. Reseated, re-applied thermal paste, dot/line/thin spread etc. Nothing seems to work.

Looking at the maximum, it always got too high for my liking during stress testing. Is this just a bad chip or what?

temp over 70C dangerous !
Decrease Vcore if too high , Add fan for exhaust, open casing , Check in Bios Smart Fan must disabled ! test stress ! cool ... cool.. how much your temp drop,

x2 on the open case.... if the temp is drop a good amount... then your problem is the case....

check your vcore, is it on auto? auto usally have near max on vcore and cause more heat/volt then needed

These temps are bad -
Check you case cooling, fan properly mounted ?
Also use hw monitor, double check temps
Check v core, a high v core drastically increase temps/

Ok, downclocked to 3.88ghz, 1.225 volts and this is what I get: http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/5300/temps3.png

Eeeh... I hear hyper threading adds to the overall temperature. Is that true? This is the first CPU I have with that feature, my old q6600 had no such thing.

not really, One thing that hyperthreading does do is to make the cpu/operating system interface more efficient so that more stuff can be running at the same time, without idle (no-op) states. The more it runs, the more heat is generated, because it generates the heat least when it is doing nothing.

I doubt if it generates significant additional heat. In any case, the additional heat should only be important if you are over-clocking or if your case is filled with dust so that you are already close to the edge.

maybe your PSU up to 850W !

This is an entirely new PC so, no dust. Also, 1.225 volts led to instability. So upped it to 1.25. Highest it got was 82.

does your case have good air circulation? enough air coming in and even more going out?


think about changing yoru cooler?

For now, decrease your oc, 80 c + is not good-
Add more fans, if u can consider a new cooler, or just not oc too much-

maybe wrong read by SOftware core temp!
check in Bios how Temp your PC ...!
try HWmonitor Pro www.cpuid.com

Took some time for this stuff to get here... anyway, ordered 3, 140mm fans one in front blowing in, two on top blowing air out. Hottest it has gotten was 68-71 while running intelburntest, linpack and prime 95 at 4.00Ghz, it stays WELL below that during normal operations and multitasking. Was all just a simple matter of bad airflow. At least, I hope that was all.
