Core i5-750 Idle-50C Work-80C !!! Tags: CPUs Core Intel i5 Product Last response: June 29, 2010 6:14 PM in CPUs Share aaron92 June 29, 2010 4:49:13 PM Alright this is really scaring me... I am using an aftermarket cooler that seemed to have nice reviews and would suit me fine. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I am overclocked to 3.4 Ghz but even at stock speeds, I have the exact same idle / work temperatures... So I ask you, is this normal and why hasn't my computer asploded already, and what can I do to lower my temperatures?

If the paste does not create a proper seal, temperatures are often significantly higher than they should be. m 0 l aaron92 June 29, 2010 5:37:01 PM Do you have an example of what is the proper method? m 0 l Related resources OC intel core i5-750 - Forum Core i5-750 @ 3.2GHz temperature - Forum What is the manufacturer-specified max temp for Intel Core i5-750? - Forum INTEL vs AMD: Phenom II X6 1090T vs Core i5-750 - Forum Core i5-750 & GTX 470 SLI - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Your voltage is too high for stock. 1.328v is voltage that people use to typically overclock up to 3.8GHz or so. Normal stock voltages I've seen are around 1.26v or less. m 0 l user 18 a b à CPUs June 29, 2010 6:10:55 PM This seems to be a good guide. It's not for your specific CPU, and is a few years old, but goes over many of the important factors in applying thermal paste. http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_conten... m 0 l user 18 a b à CPUs June 29, 2010 6:14:12 PM Read this thread too, it has a lot of good info. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/256233-29-blob-spread... m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
