I7920 stock ghz + true = 62-64 under prime 95 Tags: CPUs Core Last response: August 19, 2010 10:13 AM in CPUs Share ipwn101 August 18, 2010 5:43:13 PM AS title, is that not a little on the high side for a true cooler ? Case is a haf932... Wait, whats the difference between cpu and core temps? My core temps are 64 ish and the cpu temp is 53...

I don't know about your cooler (plus the brand is useless without the model number) but you are performing better than stock, from what I have read (I don't own a core i7). cjl a b à CPUs August 18, 2010 9:00:03 PM Those sound a bit high with a TRUE (Enzo: that's a ThermalRight Ultra Extreme). What fan are you using?

Not even warm, probably around 20 degrees. http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Thermalright-Ultra-120-e... Thats the cooler. Now I managed to clock it to 3.8 and core temps remained around the 70-80s with the cpu at 58 if I remember correctly. Then it was saying I only had 4gb of ram.... So I took it all back to stock to make sure the ram was fine, so now its back to normal ( 6gb 2.6 ) Then I ended up choosing that preset on the rampage which takes it to 3.2 I think. Given up tbh. Running fine as 3.2. Think I will do some more reading before attempting to overclock again. I think I had 1.25v at 3.8 and that was fine. Just said I had 4gb ram. It was stable though with prime 95 etc. TBH I have been building, installing etc that computer for the past 8 hours now so I think I will just relax Raidur a b à CPUs August 18, 2010 10:21:07 PM Hehe, you can always reseat your heatsink and reapply thermal paste, if you haven't tried. welshmousepk a b à CPUs August 19, 2010 10:13:47 AM +1 most likely a badly seated cooler, or badly applied TIM. clean both surfaces with isopropyl alcohol, and reapply. dont just blob it, use a bag or razor method.
