Cpu overheating Tags: CPUs Core Last response: April 7, 2012 5:19 AM in CPUs Share hyder13 April 6, 2012 1:50:29 PM i am having problem with my cpu E5700 at 3.0 GHz with stock cooling at idle the cores show these temps(measured with hwmonitor) core 0 38 C core 1 36 C my room temp is around 28 to 32 C. now the problem is when only playing video in youtube the temp goes upto 55-56 C and while playing games it goes up to 75-77 C in core 0 and 68-70 core 1 which is way over danger zone. I ran prime95 and temp shoots up to 78 in about 5-6 minutes. so i took the HSF ,cleaned it up and placed it again firmly(HSF doesn't wiggle a bit) but nothing changed. whenever i play games temp is around 74-75 C. so what should i do next? checked other forums and threads but they all said to clean the HSF and place it firmly and properly(even applied thermal paste no luck ) i am using a crappy thermaltake V3 with only the rear exhaust fan that comes with the case(rpm around 1750) and cpu fan around 2400 to 2870 rpm depending on load condition. ( checked the task manager no background program only running hwmonitor and firefox and writing this and temp is hovering at 53-58 C at core 0 and 47-55 C at core 1) and no oc and vcore is 1.3v thanks in advance More about : cpu overheating Max1s April 6, 2012 3:09:03 PM Thats normal. My i5 2500k runs at 85 degrees with stock cooling. I dont use stock cooling, mind you, but the lesson is that its fine. I've seen a 24 hour prime 95 run at 101 degrees on a first gen i7. m 0 l das_stig a c 109 à CPUs April 6, 2012 4:51:09 PM To get the temps down, you could buy a Frezzer Pro 13 that uses the normal push-pin mounting system or if for the best, remove the motherboard and fit a Hyper 212 EVO, both should cost £25-£30. I have the older Hyper 212+ on a E5400 overclocked to 3.6Ghz playing 1080 movies and the cpu fan never goes over 800rpm. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
