i7 Temps :/

Just checking the temps with my new i7, and this is what I was presented with...



I'm pretty sure it's meant to be running a lot cooler than that. I'm using a Titan Fenrir V2 cooler. I set the fan speed to about 1600RPM usually, but I just turned it up to2190RPM to see if it makes any difference.

Speedstep is on btw.

That is definitely hot. With speedstep on a D0, and the Fenrir isn't awful either, you shouldn't see much above mid 35ish.

Although if you live near where I do, today is blazingly hot. Got a decent case?

ATCS 840. I just pulled the cooler off to find that I really hadn't put enough thermal paste on the CPU. It wasn't even covering the whole area, let alone getting in the gaps of the heatpipes. I put more on, but I ran out, so I'm hoping it will be enough. I will buy some more paste but I want to overclock it now lol

Yeah I know lol. I'll do it in a minute. Temps are the same no matter what clock speed it is. There is no difference between 12x multi and 21x multi lol

Just OC'd to 4ghz using the Gigabyte PDF. I started intel burn test but Core Temp jumped from 55 degrees average to 85 degrees average in a matter of seconds. When I stopped the burn test, the temps literally dropped to 55 a split second after. Is this reading properly? I'm pretty sure there aren't many materials that can lose heat that quickly.

Just ran intel burn test, maximum settings with full 8 threads and Core Temp said two of the cores were 228 degrees. Whereas Speedfan said 75. Speedfan was always about 10 to 15 degrees cooler than Core Temp, I don't know which one to trust. I will do some Prime95 testing and see if it's stable. It seems to be at the moment.

Was that 228 degrees a typo? I sincerely hope so! If not, I'd preferentially trust speedfan as 228C would surely fry your cpu no?

Try using OCCT for stress testing and measuring temps. If that doesn't show anything near that high then it's probably a core temp bug of some kind
