Thread: cpu high temp - i5 3470 reaching 85-90+ on load

  1. #1

    Default cpu high temp - i5 3470 reaching 85-90+ on load

    Pretty much the title. Using the stock cooler. Should I get a new cpu cooler? Btw attached pic was not from fully loaded cpu. Idle temp ~50 and normal usages temp varies from 60-75.

    Edit: Cleaned whole cpu around last November / December.

    Yes, get a Haofeng Cooler, which looks similar to an intel's stock cooler, but is heavier, and should cost you 350/- to 550/- depending on whom you're buying it from.

    And make sure to use a bit of thermal paste. The intel stock coolers provided with this CPU is terrible and can't cope with the heat at all. I am using the same CPU for years now, overclocked to 3.8 GHz base and 4.0 GHz Boost, and it's been holding up in most games.

    If ur willing to spend some more money on a good cooler, I'd recommend the Cryorig M9i (2000/=) . Gonna keep that processor chilly even in a hot country like ours.

    I might gonna spend on better cooler but not sure though. Not going to OC anything and I believe anything that can lower down my CPU temp to anything reasonable range would be ok. Btw how is these 2 cooler? Searched internet and those seems to be pretty good choice too. At least for my simple purpose.

    After market Cooler can`t help u much. Reapplying thermal paste may improve the situation.
    HW monitor shows there is something wrong.
    I am using the same processor with stock cooler.
    Hint.. current value of Voltage,Utilization and Clocks of four core.
    Check mine.

    Are you kidding me!! In my Processor power management settings (Power > High performance) both min & max values were at 100%. After setting min to 5% my temp downed like 5-8 deg. Sadly I do not have much idea about these stuffs so have to search for suitable / ideal values.

    Thanks a lot!!

    Edit: About aftermarket cooler, almost every online reviews claiming improvement on cpu temp though.

    Edit2: It certainly helped to improve my idle time temp. Not sure about temp on full load. I usually kept my power settings as balanced but it auto changes to high performance. Gave up fixing that thing long ago.

    Cough.

    His power management is set to maximum performance, therefore the higher VCore. Since his CPU isn't switching to a lower power state, he has a higher temperature. But this doesn't change the fact that either he has dried up thermal paste, or that his intel stock cooler is simply inadequate.

    I have been using a Chinese Knock Off Replica of a Stock Cooler (with blue Heatsink and green fan with a Orange plastic shroud) for a few years now, and even with an overclock of 400~600 MHz my Intel Burn Test results don't cross 70 degrees. There's nothing wrong with the VCore reading.

    And if you want a better solution for monitoring temperatures, use HWInfo.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Seems like my stock cooling fan performing weak, so yeah, going to change that. Though which brand for air cooler & thermal paste, haven't decided yet.
