My i7 runs at 88deg. Need some help... MasK May 2nd, 12, 12:45 AM #1

Hi guys..

My i7-870 (2.93GHz) seem to run at 88 deg (according to bios) while doing nothing much (rebooting, etc while re-installing OS). And I get random BSODs while booting up or shutting down. I had to shut down the PC wait a while and it'll work normally.

Under computer properties, it also seems to have down-clocked automatically. With all these info, can I safely say that 88deg is way too much for a CPU? I havent been in the OC scene for a long time.. and I remember older CPUs not even hittng 60degs..

I've forced underclock my CPU to 1.33Ghz and it seems more stable now, but slower of course.. and temp is 75deg. My CPU setup is stock and fan is working.

Any idea what I should do now? Is getting a CPU cooler a good idea.. if so, any good and cheap one to recommend?

Thanks for reading!

Have you check on the thermal paste?

Take out reapply then boot again. See is there is any improvements.

Or check for dust level in the casing.

Dust could be a little high.. but now ive been keeping casing door open.
It's a total stock setup.. so how can thermal paste change it's properties over time?

Thermal paste can harden and loose its effectiveness in heat transfer. I can suggest swapping your stock cooler too.

Your system is in needs of something like this:
Cooler Master TPC 812 First Look and Review - A Noctua Killer?

You can rule out upgrading your processor, mobo. Spend that money on a brand new SSD and get yourself a nice cooler. If more money available, get a new casing.

Thanks alot of your replies!
Well, I already have an SSD and I'm using a CM nVidia casing, which is pretty neat imho

So I have considered the following now:
CM hyper 212+ (~$60?)
CM TPC 812 (~$100?)
xigmatek gaia ($38)

Which one would ya guys recommend and bang for buck? Tentatively I don't intend to OC and I'm looking for something that will be stable and maintenance-free .
Probably will head down this evening to get one of these!

Only an idiot will create/buy/have black heatsinks. Totally forgotten what a heatsink essentially does.
