Hello, I have a problem with my i7-930


My gear
Asus Rampage III extreame
CPU i7-930 2.8GHz (stock no OC)
Corsair 1000W Silent Pro Gold
3X4 Corsair memory vengeage - 2000MHz (running at 1066)
Standard intel cooler
Tthermal artic grease MX4
Room temp about 20° C
Processor temp about 44° C idle



temperature


voltage


settings



Even outside the case on my desk in the bios shows temperature at 45 ° C without load.


I googled and found several similar cases without a clear answer.


Can someone help me to solve this?

I just try with my V10 form coolermaster and don´t get a a significant change

Hey Foti, I don't have an anwser for you but I'm in a similar situation. I've got a i7 950 with an asus mobo, stock intel cooler, running at 50C idle. I re-seated the heatsink a bunch of times but no change really, except when tried without thermal paste - that was hotter obviously.

People are suggesting that the Asus board auto settings might be over-volting the cpu. As far as I can tell that's not the case though.

I hear that these i7s run pretty hot normally. I'm putting in a Corsair water cooler system tomorrow and we'll see how that helps.

Anyhow... sorry I don't have any concrete advice for you but I do feel your pain.

even with a coolermaster v10 you got the same temps? Strange.

check your thermal paste. However i7s run a bit hot, I've heard its normal but 45 seems a bit too hot, but your on a stock cooler. But the fact that your coolermaster didn't do any difference is even more strange.

The difference is only 5 ° C to 3 ° C with V10

before my board with a 4.0GHz OC ran at 45 ~ 50 ° C (V10) very stable

what if you reduce your voltage a bit?

Reducing the voltage with temperature ~ 42 ° C.
However it looks better when I reduce the CPU clock

Everything worked well with the OC reaching a maximum of 49° C running at 4.0GHz ( room at 20° C) and after the exchange of memory for this http://www.corsair.com/memory/intel-memory-solutions/in...

you could go for liquid cooling, also 49 C was idle right?

your motherboard voltages seem within normal bounds? Did you make any changes before the temps went up?

Only chage the memory now I waiting to get my old memory to check.

Hi, fil1p you saw in the right direction.

I found a problem in my MB on voltage settings ( auto settings dont work well, only in manual settings works fine ).

The cause of the problem in my case was an electrical problem on the motherboard, since replaced the motherboard and the cooler for a H70 these are the results.











Room Temp at 19º~21ºC.



Thank you all for your help.
