I have I7 with Asus P6t deluxe v2; it runs at stock speed 2.67 GHz, but temperature is always 47-50c (idle). When I overclock to 3.2 - 3.6 temp reaches to 55-60c. I wonder is it normal or kind of high?
I re-seated cpu cooler fan & reset bios couple times, but i did not change anything.
What's the right temperature for I7 without overclocking?
Asus P6t deluxe v2 (using its thermal pastes)
Cooler master V8
XFX H4850 video card
6 gig dominator 12800
window xp 32 bit
Could someone tell me what's wrong with my machine?
Is the CPU cooler warm to the touch after the machine has been under load for a while? If so, then it's probably got a decent thermal connection to the CPU and your problem is more likely to be insufficient airflow through the case. Do you have any case fans other than the one in the power supply?
I have not loaded anything on my computer yet. Just wonder is there something to be removed on heat pipe of Asus p6t deluxe v2? Something block the heat from CPU to outside. Anyway, the temp inside the case is 12c, nothing inside the case is warm except heat pipe
The motherboard heat pipe. Anyway i just loaded a game and played for 2 min and temperature went up to 65c. I was afraid it could go up more, so I stopped it. Is it possible the motherboard caused overheat? I have few days left to return the motherboard. I need your opinions asap.
You said nothing was warm except the heat pipe on your motherboard? If the CPU cooler isn't warm then it doesn't have a good thermal connection to the CPU. You probably need to remove the cooler, clean off the old thermal paste and be sure that the mating surface of both the CPU and the cooler is clean and free from any debris or finger oils. Then apply new paste, mount the cooler and make sure that the mounting hardware is applying strong pressure to clamp the cooler down onto the CPU.
I have a question about CPU voltage. Is it ok if I set my CPU voltage to 1.0v instead leave it auto? Does it affect the CPU operation in the long run? When I set CPU voltage to 1.0v the CPU temp drop from 41 to 32c at IDLE & 53c for prime95.
