Solved Silver Arrow runs i7 950 hot Tags: Heatsinks Chip Intel i7 Silver Overclocking Last response: September 3, 2011 1:51 AM in Overclocking Share trihedral a b K Overclocking September 2, 2011 7:13:05 PM Hello! I have a Thermalright Silver Arrow cooling down a i7 950. Chip overclocked to 4ghz @ 1.2625 without vdroop & 1.317v max on cpu-z. chip goes somewhere from 35-42C Idle and 71-75C on load even on cold nights with two windows all the way open. i reseated my IC Diamond TIM twice but still got the same temps. (pea size on the center) When i use this on a AMD X6 1090T @ 4ghz i get 17-19C idle and 40C load. (1.38v) then why is it so hot on this intel chip?
