hey guys wondering if my cpu temp is too high right now its idling at 46 degrees i just bought a new case that may be problem, less airflow
im running a i7 950 dual 460s SLI 6 gigs a ram v core set to 1.25 volts
i have a monster zalman cnps 10x extreme
are these temps ok?
btw i bought a new case, and the evga x58 sli classified edition more room in case, but i think after i got these video cards up and running in sli correctly, the temp seems to have shot up it use to idle at 33 degrees just noticed a jump 20 min ago
They look high for a non-OC'd Core i7. With a 3.8Ghz OC'd i7 920.
thats what it looks like right there just took the pic
im measuring on the motherboard thermostat and e-leet, both temps match up perfectly, i also went into bios earlier and that temp matched up with the earlier readings as well
and you should be able to see the temp in that pic as well
I think you can rule out the Corsair 800D case being an issue as well. Reviews say the airflow and cooling is actually quite good, even for overclocked system.
What temps do you get when you put CPU voltage control on Auto.
everything is on auto atm in bios only thing i changed in bios was the ram to XMP
and it seems like the board auto clocked the cpu from 3.06 to 3.2
Using XM profiles shouldn't be any issue for system temps. After the system shuts down and cools... does the HSF assembly feel tight on the mounting bracket? Doesnt move around on you with a bit of pressure?
it did before, let me shut it down real quick after these sound drivers finish here in a couple min, im pretty sure its on good. my buddy who is a master at comps applied the thermal paste as a dot but didnt move it around. he said he wasnt a noob lol.(idk if thats an issue)
