Your temps are HIGH. My temps run lower then yours at my OC and on load.

Attached, you'll find pictures of my cabling. It isn't "UBER GAMER L33T", but its mostly clutter free. You can see the bottom 120 and the top 3 120mm fans if you look closely. All are pushing at full blast.

So, I after I took the first pictures, I put the ultra-vortex-room-cooling fan directly on the case, and took another picture. (As proof to you heathens!) I then fired up Prime 95 for two minutes. See temps.
How did you apply the paste? Did you remove the plastic cover on the bottom of the heatsink? Maybe you just have a crappy hot cpu.

If it were mine I wouldn't worry about it one bit. You have a warranty...

yea it can get that hot in prime95, what did you expect from stock cooler.. better stay away from intel burn test lol


buy new cooler, problem solved



btw; in bios it stresses cpu a little, idk atm but i think its ~50%, that's why you saw higher temps..

Just a thought for trouble shooting purposes Q. Are you 100% certain each of those crappy little locking pins are fully seated?

The cooler came with paste already applied. It was in three sections - no plastic on it thank goodness.

I'm not too worried.

New heat sink is on its way. I expected the stock cooler to perform in the 60s under load like the rest of the web is reporting.

During the first install, I checked each pin going into the back of the board. It looked good and there was no movement on the posts or on the heat sink.

Now with it in my case, I'm just popping it off and back on. I get 4 clicks and keep pushing! I've installed about a dozen of these crappy heat sinks, so the posts are always the first thing I check.

I think it may be your vcore might just be a tad high, that's all. Idling at 30C is regular, then it's spiking hot on load. All points in that direction anyways.

His vcore is 1.28 under load. Which is what it should be.

For the average enthusiast, overclocking is a way of life... and a free upgrade. And since most enthusiasts replace hardware every year or so, it's not a big deal.

After a burnt CPU/Mobo catastrophe earlier in the month (faulty motherboard), I finally received the RMA parts yesterday. Everything seemed to work fine this time. I was surprised that W7 64 SP1 installed from bare bones to working OS in like 25 minutes. Super awesome performance on the desktop!

P67A-GD65

So I thought I'd check my temps after noticing a reading of 65C in the BIOS!!!

In Windows, I'm typically getting about 30C on idle across 4 cores with an overall reading around 40C. Under load with Prime/Linpack/etc, I got up to 87C!!! I've taken the stock cooler off and reseated it, rotating 90 degrees, and applied some Arctic 5 paste. (I used stock originally). Now under load I'm hitting 83C max with 80C being the norm across the 4 cores.

"The Googles" tell me that the normal load range is in the 60C's. So what's wrong with my configuration?

Everyone on the web is running a 2600K. I can barely find anyone with the vanilla 2600. So what's the big difference?

http://hothardware.com/printarticle.aspx?articleid=1610

Scroll down and eventually you'll see two VERY different coolers. I was suspicious of how small the stock cooler was. I have a 1.6 GHZ Celeron with the same cooler.

On all the reviews I read that the only difference between vanilla and K was $30 and the ability to overclock. WRONG. The coolers are vastly different. 80C-87C is way to hot when the T Junction is at 99C. Its either buy a new heatsink or be super paranoid and clean the dust every two weeks. (Not that I should let it get dusty anyways, but that's way too close for comfort).

You've been warned. Even if you're not overclocking, spend the $30 for the cooler with the 2600K. Or invest it into an aftermarket cooler.


EDIT:
Roadhog mention later on in this thread...
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...6&postcount=19

That the 2600K actually comes with the same crappy cooler. A few Google searches later and it looks like he's right. It seems like there might just be something screwy with my setup.
I have the 2600k and using the stock cooler, running stock speeds for now. Got the k so I could overclock later of if I upgrade the cooler. Anyways under load my CPU sits around the 60 degrees C

Put it this way. The TIM I use on my cpu needs to be burned it at 100c for 5-10 mins. My cpu still works just fine. If your cpu ran at 99c it's entire life it would last the full 5 years or whatever it is rated for.
Somebody doesn't know Sandy Bridge very well, obviously. SB doesn't have as high a thermal tolerance as Nehalem. 85C is maximum recommended temp for SB. Maybe check some specs before opening the mouth? Your situation is irrelevant to the OP, as is your advice.
