Phenom II 1090t getting way too hot with a cooler master hyper 212+

My phenom 2 is getting up to 52c under load, and is 42c idle. I'm using a hyper 212 that is definitely seated correctly. My case cooling is fine. What could be the problem?

Hi :) 

There is no problem ...my 1100Ts run at around 35 to 40 IDLE and around 50 to 55 Under load....

If you really want that temp down, I would suspect your CASE cooling NOT your cpu....

How many fans have you and where >???

All the best Brett :)

+1^
Your temperatures are fine, I myself run the Phenom II X4 955 and it idles typically around 30's and max load (prime 95) is 50. Those are my temperatures at stock, when I had my overclock my temperatures were high 30's for idle and high 50's for load.

^ I had a 965 BE, and it ran that hot as well. That temp is fine.

Now it's getting up to 70c... no OC or anything. Sorry, I haven't stress tested in a while.

70 seems to be a problem, check your voltage on the CPU. It may be too high for a stock clock.

Download HWmonitor and do some stressing on the CPU to bring it to max speed (if you have Cool'n' Quiet on) and tell us what it says in the CPU Vcore section, either value or max will do fine if you are stressing it out.



Edit: Ignore those temperatures, those were at start on a really chilly day (in the house :lol:  ) I also switched my CPU cooler to the Antec Kuhler 620 H2O which is equivalent to the Hyper 212. They are within 1-2 degrees of each other in load and idle.

it was 1.500 when stress testing. the minimum value is 1.272

I don't own your exact CPU but 1.5 seems quite high. Do you know how to lower the voltage in the Bios? I would say decrease it to at least 1.45 and then slowly back down by small increments. I would guess 1.4 would seem ok but that's just me I do not own the Phenom II X6 but the Phenom II X4. Also I hear every chip is different and some can overclock higher than others (overclocking and voltages are related).

Hey Brett, whats the voltage on your 1100t? Is 1.5volts too high for stock clocks and is 1.4-1.45 around the normal for it?

I have a fan at the top, one at the side, and one at the top back.

Is the Top fan an exhaust? the side fan an intake? and the top back and exhaust?

Seems like negative pressure, you should try and get a bit more intake fans. Don't you have the fan slots in the front of the case? Should utilize that as intakes then.

Hi :) 

You DEFINITELY NEED intake fans at front...bottom usually...

Ah, so 1.5 is kind of big for stock clocks then right?

Thanks for answering my question :)

I figured out what the problem was. My motherboard decided to randomly OC to 3.7ghz without telling me. I'll definitely look into more fans. Thanks so much.

Well it could just be HWMonitor, but if no one hasnt noticed. Your +12v rail only has 8v on it, which is really bad. Again it could just be HWMonitor as sometimes its not accurate.
