Hey guyz


Please can you confirm my temperatures are alright or what..


I get 84 c maximum in real temp with 100 cpu load

Is that tooo much...

I have a

Core 2 quad 8400
G31mxp motherboard
3GB ram ddr 2 667
HD 4850 512 mb vga

Also, are you overclocking? if not, those temps are out of control, if you are overclocking, then you might need to back down a bit.

Sounds like your heatsink is not making full contact with the CPU. You should take it apart clean off the old thermal compound then reset it with some fresh compound. While you have it off get all the dust out of it if it is dusty.

I'm thinking heatsink also since we do not know which brand or what its thermal design is but before you purchase, please ensure you have applied the thermal paste properly (too much can cause high cpu temps also) and that the retension mechanism is installed properly.

Dude Id pull off the heatsink, slap some thermal paste on, stress for around 15 mins, to check temps, if they are the same, buy a new fansink. ;D

If it is a stock Intel or even a lot of the aftermarket ones they have those dumb pins which can be a pain to get in. Sometimes one corner will not click totally and this will make your temps go crazy. Also another good idea is to pull the heatsink and look at the thermal compound make sure that it is makeing 100% contact. If you still have a problem with it after all that then its time for a new heatsink fan.

Last quick question what kind of cooling does the rest of your case have?

hijaz, 3 of us asked you some questions which have yet to be answered.

1. Are you using the stock Intel Heatsink?
2. Are you overclocking?
3. Is the heatsink completely and securely attached to the motherboard?

ok then, those Temps are really high, definitely take the heatsink/fan off and re-install after re-applying thermal paste.

It is a function where the CPU automatically lowers the multiplyer (slows down) when the CPU approaches the maximum temp.

Stops you damaging the CPU.

Not quite.
EIST is more power saving.

Thermal monitor comes in two flavours.
Thermal monitor 1 can adjust the fan speed automatically.
Thermal monitor 2 works in a similar fashion to EIST and reduces the core voltage and/or CPU multiplier when the temperature goes out of specification to avoid permanent damage to the CPU.

Up one from the bottom of the list. EIST is two places further up.

Just thought it would be worth using if your temps are that high.

Uhhh, your board does not seem to support it. Shame.
You can adjust the bios to increase fan speed (p44 in the manual). This already should be working hard.

How did re-adjusting the fan and heatsink go?

These are fine for that environment. They are are around the limit for the CPU specification, but you are very unlikely to get those temps under normal use, only when running stress tests.

If you plan to moderately overclock, get an aftermarket cooler, if not, you are safe.

It's a little more complex than that but basically here's how you will want your temps...

Idle should be between roughly 20c - 38c
Light to medium load should be between 30c - 45c
Medium to high load should be between 37c - 55c
Gaming should be about 50c - 65c
Stress testing should be about 55c - 80c

This is how it was with my Core2Quad with stock cooler. Aftermarket will bring most of those temp ranges down and allow for overclocking head-room.

His room temperature goes into the thirties. Getting his idle temps into the thirties can be doable, however I think if you are saying his idle can be as low as 20C, you may not have read the entire thread. Not the first however. :) 

@hijaz, you should try to keep your temps below 75C really, but if prime95 is giving you high seventies, you will be fine. Games will not make your CPU as hot as Prime. You are O.K.

Indeed, those temps are fine seeing that your ambient temps are higher than mine. My ambient temps are usually between 20 - 23 c
