CPU HeatSink?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

 

I currently own a SwiftTech MCX462-V with a 92mm fan running at 2860 RMP, my temps are as follows:

Case Temps:32

CPU Temps:51

CPU Diode:66

Chip Set:40

Vcore:1.79

Vagp:1.79

VDimm:2.91

+3.3:3.25

+5.0:4.92

+12:11.86

 

I am also using CpuIdleExttreme, does this app help in anyway?

I have 2 front 80mm fans and 1 80mm side side, 2 80mm rear fans and 1 hard drive fan cooling one of my hard drives. I am using Antec TruePower480. My question is should I get a better heatsink to get better cooling?

 

Thanks,

J

Are those idle or load temps? If they're idle they're way too high. If they're load they're a little bit high.

 

Does your mobile really need that much vcore to run 2200?

 

I'm not sure about the heatsink. I mean... it's not a Thermalright... ;) .... but I read a review and it didn't look bad.

 

I don't know much about CpuIdle Extreme but the NF2 Cooling Patch is quite effective at lowering idle temps.

That seems a bit high on both voltage and temps, have you tried starting over and overclocking from scratch? I could be wrong on the vcore, its been a long time since I've done anything with socket A's, but I seem to remember it didn't need all that much for 2200.

Those temps are pretty high for that heatsink.(Unless you live in yuma and it's summer) Has it got good paste on it Is the paste job messed up somehow? You may need to clean and repaste that critter.(Alchol and qtips on the chip die and alchol paper towels then qtip on the base of the sink. You may have to re-lap it too.(If it's tore-up where the cpu chip contact's the sink) Be careful and cleaner is better.

Thats this one right: http://www.pcabusers.com/reviews/swiftech/mcx462v/p3.html

Sorry about the double post everyone. I read some of your other post about that I don't remember if I posted there or not but from what I've gathered the problem heat transfer. Caused possibily by bad contact with the chip die. Appication and the quality of the paste. That is a fairly good sink it really is. If you try to upgrade to a fangled heatpipe you may be dissapointed. (Seen that a few times) The TT's are really good though. They're sayin'' the TR's are even better could be too.

Also be sure you have a prefect flat fit between the top of the chip core and the heatsink base.. Case temp 26c cpu 46c cpu Or 31c Case 51c cpu. depending which thread I'm following.That kinda' indicates some bad heat transfer. Also the heatsink should be getting quite warm.If it's not then you know you need to do repaste and reseat the sink..(Again? Yup most likely) I've had to redo a few meself. That heatsink should be good for nearly any overclocking you want to do. But it has to be fitted right. Also that fan could be a tad on the weak side.Also KoN is right 1.80vcore is a might much for 11x200 try say 1.575-1.65 max.Also that vagp is really high try 1.5vagp.(You could cook yer'card)Don't worry too much most of us have been known to overvolt jus' a tad!Hehe. I myself have been known to overvolt the wrong thing. If you are getting errors. Try memtest86 1 memory stick atta' time I'm startin' to think you have a bad stick o' tccd. KoN had the best advice.(I musta' still been typin' when he posted that last time.)Sorry KoN I didn't see that.

Well get er' cooled off and well help overclock it. You'll have to be more forth comming with yer' specs though Check my sig. Mines not the best example of that but it does list my settings. volts timings.ect. 1 last thing what powersupply have you got running all that.? I sure hope it's a pretty big one. That's enough outta' me. Back to readin' "Clay"

Guys what do you think about this?

 

Thermaltake Big Typhoon 4-in-1 CPU Heatsink w/ Heatpipe Tech

 

Weight: 813 g (28.7 oz)

 

That seems awfully heavy. I'd stick with what you have for now. At least until you figure out what you can really do with it.

 

If you'd like more recommendations on heatsinks please post in the Recommendations and Hot Deals section.

 

thanks
