Default Re: PROBLEM! HUGE CPU temperature on extremly cooled, non-OC QX6700 on 680i

I still want to OC the CPU to from 2,66 to 3,2 but I am not sure if it won't harm my computer due to high stress temperature I have when it is rather warm inside...
Not all quads are equal, but I got mine from 2.4 - 3ghz without even touching the voltage. The difference in temp was only about +3 degrees.

There is much debate about the max temps for the quads and one common figure is 65 degrees. But, I would have thought if the chip was near its max temp it would throttle back the speed first, then if the max temp was exceeded it would shut down before doing any damage.

Mine runs perfectly stable using various stress apps at 70 degrees.

Speaking of voltage, might be worth checking what voltage your mobo is using for your cpu.

Max tJunction (Die temp) for Q6600 and QX6700 is 100C (CoreTemp), did read somewhere it starts throttle @ 83C.

My Q6600 runs at around 50 idle, 65 load. But the bios shows it at 15-25 degrees! I almost cooked it by having the cpu fan set to bios controlled.
My bios is reporting the correct TCase temperatures which are always about 15C lower than CoreTemp's TJunction.

But, my question is, could it be just caused by wrongly measured temperatures by the sensors?
I'd recommend you remove and reapply thermal grease yourself. Never trust anyone else to do the job right. If temps are the same after reapplying grease then its probably a faulty sensor.
Also 70c with just Orthos is crazy because only two cores are working. Get four instances of Prime95 going and you'll get an idea of true load temps

I don't get it. I've read a lot of places that people say you need to run 2 instances of Orthos because it only uses 2 cores... but I've only run 1 instance and it maxes all 4 cores!

Task manager shows all 4 cores at 90%+

That is weird, I've done a few reinstalls and it's always the same two cores. I wish I was as lucky because its a pain in the rear to run four instances of one app

Two possibilities: 1) IHS is concave or corvex. This limits the heat transfer from the IHS to the heatsink for efficient heat dissipation. 2) The bottom of the heatsink is not flat, thus it limits the same thing. It would be wise to use some kind of perfectly straight object (razor blade, credit card or a ruler) and measure across the middle of the IHS or bottom of the heatsink and make sure they are not the culprit before going any further.

If no heat is being transfered to the heatsink because of the two cases above, you wouldn't possibly feel any heat when trying to touch the heatsink. How can you since no heat is transfered from the IHS to it? You would only feel it as slightly warm because of it.

Yes Asus boards suck with regards to temperature monitoring.

I remember having an Asus A7V133 long ago and the temperatures it reported would be 15c higher then any other mobo with same cooling and chip set up.

Have u selected 'Any CPU' in the drop-down list. If so, to make sure you're maxing all the cores, open 4 instances and set one to '0', one to '1', one to '2' and the last to '3'. That'll do it
