Here's from CPU-Z

Does everything look like it should? is everything okay? im sorry but im REALLY lousy at this, i dont know what should be what etc. thats why im asking here..

i bought:
i5-750 2.66ghz
Gigabyte p55a ud3
8gb corsair dominator 1333hz
NH-U9B cpu cooler

also: i get pretty high tempratures (60-75,80) at full load, even though i dont use the stock cooler.. could it be that i put too little thermal paste on? or anything else?

sorry for all these nooby questions lol, i appreciate answers!

More about : allright wrong

as i was not allowed to edit:


Edit: i have an 8800gts 640mb, there was 2 gfx card slots on my mobo and i put it in the one furthest away from the CPU because it was a real pain to try to get the card into the top slot. it says in my win7 gadget PCIe x4. i guess i would get a higher x- if i moved it to the top slot, yes? would it be a big difference in performance and graphics n such?

Can't really tell a whole lot from that CPU-Z, but it looks correct. I'd look at those temps though, that's a little high. How much thermal paste did you use?

(Note the quad-core application you need to use, per AS5)

I think you're in the wrong slot there. Your board has one PCIe X16 2.0, and one PCIe x16, that runs at x4.

im gonna move my gfx card when i remove one of my hdds later then, thanks

i used MX3 compund and made a 0.5cm dot in the middle. when i redo it, what tempratures in celsius should i expect to be "normal" in full load and idle?

Well, according to AS5, you're supposed to do a horizontal line, but I've always done the dot too. I usually apply about 3/4 of a grain of uncooked rice to my headspreaders. I don't have an i5, but I couldn't imagine them getting above 50C under 4x100% load, and if had to take an educated guess, I'd say somewhere around
20-25C idle.

allright, one more thing, if you look at my picture again and look at the memory.. why does it say frequency "444, 518 etc.." my corsair dominators are 1333mhz 7-7-7-somethingsomething :S

and what temprature would you not rise above- cpu wise.

Well, memory isn't my strongest point, but it looks like you're fine. The bottom right image shows your memory speed at 683.4, so multiply that by 2, since it's DDR.
February 4, 2010 6:10:57 PM

do i multiply with 3 if its DDR3? or just multiply by 2 in general for all DDR memories?

Just by two for all DDR, DDR2, and DDR3 SDRAM modules, AFAIK.

allright, but if you look at the picture again it says that the latencys etc. is 9 9 9.... but when i bought them the specs said that it was 7-7-7-24(or21) memory..

Looks like something you'll have to manually set in your BIOS if it's rated at 7.

is it normal that the i5 cores are very un-similar in tempratures?

core0- 27c
core1- 22c
core2- 15c
core3- 23c

would be awesome if all of them were like core2-15c.

I'm not sure for the i5, but some quads do do that. Core 0 is what gets used the most, so that will usually be the warmest. Give it a few weeks, AS5 takes time to cure, and after that period of time you'll see some definite temp drops.
