Windows 7: Thermal compound question.

I'm not sure what your vcore is, but my machine would be around 60 +/- 3. You should not be getting temps like that. I would suggest rechecking the backplate and make sure the screws are completely seated in the backplate. The rubber gaskets go with the end with the tip on it toward the inside of the ring. On the 1155 and 1156 the screws go in the inside holes. Guessing now that yours go on the outside holes. Make sure the pump is sitting directly on top of the CPU screw it down to where you can put some pressure on it with your hand and it will not move.

BTW, the temp I gave you was overclocked at 4.4 vcore 1.288.

EDIT: I think your screws go in the inside hole of the retention bracket.

Is vcore the same thing as cpu volts? I'm at 1.33125 cpu volts.

Yes, vcore is just what my MB calls it. It is voltage to the CPU. My CPU is different than yours. what does your MB set the voltage at on optimized default? If I had mine as high as yours I would be much higher temps.. Try bringing it down as much as you think you can.

Intel specs max 1.375. I turned turbo boost off and c1e off and I'm down to 82 to 85c @100% load. I will lower the volts and see what happens. Thanks for following along. I have read on some forums that the 1366 does run hot. There are so many specs that I have seen for temps I don't know what to think. I have already check the mounting of the cooler and as far as I can see it is as it should be. The outside holes line up.

I have just been reading on newegg feedback about your chip. If you have it overclocked at 4.4, according to what I am reading you may not be far off. Some of the guys are talking about stock idle at 36 and prime at 75. It seems to be a hot running chip.

According to what I read at stock settings you should idle around 35-36 and they are getting pretty high on prime with aftermarket coolers.

Is their a chart somewhere that converts things like qpi=xxx, v core

Not that I have ever seen. I guess you have to do it the old fashioned way.What is the max temp on that chip? I think I would set it at stock and test it there. Those results should give you an idea how high you can go. You can only increase the voltage to where your cooling can keep up.

I put cup volts on auto and check cpu-z and was set to 1.4. I dropped it down to 1.28 and will give it a try. At 1.28 idle is 45 c. Going to run another test and go to bed. If that don't work I will set it back to default and slap it again with prime and see what happens. Thanks for all your help. After those test I hitting the sack.

Hope it works for you. I'll help however I can, but I have very limited experience with overclocking. All I really know is that most people are not limited by their chip, they are limited by cooling. That's why at the world championships they use liquid nitrogen.
