Default cpu core temps are too high

when i check the temps on my comp when playing games, they are about average, but the processor core temps are dangerousely high. what should i do to lower them? i'm planning on replacing the heatsink in a week or two would that help with the core temps?? but the regular processor temp doesn't seem dangerouse

Default Re: cpu core temps are too high

One out of three isn't bad, could you answer my questions please.
  • What are you reading the temps with?
  • What processor is it? (obviously dual core but which one)
  • What are you using to cool the cpu at present?
  • Have you cleaned any dust build up from the fans?
  • How is your case cooling? (what is your fan setup?
70C is not good.

To post a pic you need to host it online at Imageshack or similar then paste the URL into your post using the "Insert Image" button (the yellow one on the formatting toolbar in the post reply window)

Default Re: cpu core temps are too high

Can you do a reading with coretemp beta, post the results of both idle and load.

CoreTemp d/load

Nice case, the Zalman 9700 has a fan mate fan controller iirc, the 9700NT runs from the m/board (no fan controller)

Being a reasonably new pc I'd expect the temps to be lower than the ones you've stated even on stock cooling, did you mount the cpu? If so what thermal compound (TIM) did you use? have you checked to ensure none of the (stupid) push pins has come undone? (they have a bad habit of doing that)

Default Re: cpu core temps are too high

Do you have any paste? best to reseat it really, there would be foreign matter in there by now (probably not a major I'm just fussy)

It would probably be OK just clipped down if you have no TIM.

Keep an eye on the temps, if they don't go down then reapply the TIM and remount the cpu cooler.

Default Re: cpu core temps are too high

Go with the 9700. Its newer, and I'm running it on a Quad core, and achieving in the 30's overclocked idle on the cores, and around 50 at load on all 4 cores. Not bad at all!
Its also very easy to fit (something in which a certain one I can think of isn't *cough* Tuniq *cough*)

Default Re: cpu core temps are too high

9700 for sure if you're going Zalman, have a look at Thermalrite Ultra 120 Extreme and the Tuniq Tower as well, they're both probably better coolers tbh, if you're going to get one, just make sure you have enough room in your case (they're big suckers)

Default Re: cpu core temps are too high

From my results at least, the 9700 seems to be outperforming the Tuniq on the two computers I've built...
I haven't tried pushing the Tuniq one though, since the Asus board is a bit...well...rubbish at overclocking, so its a bit of a waste.

Default Re: cpu core temps are too high

Trust me, when I say you can turn the fan to minimum which is almost inaudiable and still get almost as good results.

Thats a definite improvement!
