belgab1980 Posted November 28, 2013 Share Posted November 28, 2013 Hi, H80i running with FANs in "Balanced mode" (~1200RPMs), Pump at 2250RPMs and coolant at 36,3° MAX. At first I had temperatures (at stock speed, 3.7GHz FUILL Load and 1,15vlt vCore) at around 31° IDLE and 72° with Prime95 A slight overclock by having all cores running at 3.9GHz in full load and 1.229vlt vCore) at 31° IDLE and 85° with Pirme95... having thermal throttling. After browing the forum and looked around, I've detached and reattached the thing, discovering that the dissi didn't make contact with the CPU very well (actually, not good at all!). Now things have improved a lot (around 10-12°, with H80i FANs in Quiet Mode) Stock speed topping at around 62°, while having all cores at 3.9GHz with 1.229vlt vCore (set automatically by the mobo), I can see it topped at 75° for a while, but now it's steady at 69°... no thermal throttling any more. Now, I'd like to ask more experienced users how I can determine if I have "good termperatures" or if the dissi isn't firmly making contact with the CPU properly like before. Also, which temperature should I look at? Right now (running prime95 @3.9GHz 1.229vlt), I can see: CPU 69° CPU Package 80° CPU IA Core 80° CPU Core #1 80° CPU Core #2 80° CPU Core #3 76° CPU Core #4 73° I have some thermal compound leftovers (see picture) I can use in place of the stock one, if it can make a difference (or even buy a new one). The other issue is due to lack of detection of the unit every time... I have to go in Device Manager, delete its HID Defive, redetect it and 90% of the times it's being found... I've tried to update the firmware to 1.07 (even if it wasnt supposed to fix this issue) and indeed it didn't. Running on a freshly installed (with nothing installed but "burn-in tools") Windows 8.1 x64 OS. Regards, Gabriele Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
