Windows 7: Overclocking Site Solves Mystery Behind Higher Ivy Bridge Temperatures

Overclocking Site Solves Mystery Behind Higher Ivy Bridge Temperatures

Quote:
Intel stepped up to the plate and seemingly hit a homerun with its Ivy Bridge architecture (which, by the way, is now showing up in retail). It's the first commercial processor to boast a 22nm manufacturing process and 3D transistors, a combination that ultimately leads to better performance with less power consumption than previous generation processors. At the same time, some have reported higher temps with Ivy Bridge compared to Sandy Bridge, and it could have to do with the way Intel attached the Integrated Heat Spreader (IHS).

I would be very leery of an extra 20c anywhere in the processor chain. That bothers me and will keep me away from these chips no matter how well they perform. Seems odd that they use less energy but run so much hotter.

Would it be possible to replace the thermal paste with a better type?

Not without removing the IHS and completely and totally voiding any warranty on the CPU, and even then it likely wouldn't help any. The way I understand it, it isn't the type of TIM used but that TIM was used in the first place and not solder.

I think Intel would use the best paste they could muster and their process for applying it would be more optimized than you could do. The real difference may be between using fluxless solder and paste TIM, for which you can do nothing about.

Then that begs the question of how much if it's a savings at all going away from solder and to TIM is costing. It would seem if they could lower the temps even half of the difference then we would gladly pay a few more dollars for lower temps? Hell make two models a soldered model for X amount more and a TIM model and lock down it's cores.

The temps are lower for non-overclocked, which is most of the market. If the higher temps are due to just the change from solder to paste TIM, then it makes no sense for Intel to not solder the k series, though it would require different manufacturing. I think there must be more to this than just the TIM.

They will get a lot of bad press for not using solder in the K versions.

After reading on the subject, there are a few that claim certain settings can reduce the temps a bit, still not ideal for an OC'ing version.

Intel bally-hoos over-clock-ability, makes a chip that overheats when done and voids the warranty if you do it.
In reality even when I use software that kicks in the Turbo-boost my temps are well within reason, less than 60C. It is Prime95's and IBT's fault.
In my experience it is only stressing that raises CPU temps, YMMV.

LOL, that was easy.
