i have this cpu for 2 years now and recently ive noticed some stuttering while gaming. Then after restarting PC an error message popped up telling me to check the BIOS due to high cpu temperatures. I've then installed the MSI Afterburner and RivaTuner to check the temperatures while im playing and in some games it goes up to 90 degrees and other games it can go to 100 degrees.
Ive opened my PC and cleaned up the cooler, which is a Sapphire Vaporex https://www.overclockers.co.uk/sapphire-vapour-x-w-dual-fan-120mm-cpu-cooler-hs-001-sp.html
that didnt seem to help. I have ordered new thermal paste to reapply but im not quite sure if that's gonna help much. anyone else that had similar issue would be able to assist me here? what can I do to lower these temperatures? I'm afraid im gonna break it if I continue running it while the temperatures are this high.
So the Intel support engineers can have more information about your system, Download, run, and save the results of this utility as a text file:
Then ATTACH the text file using the instructions under the reply window ( Drag and drop here or browse files to attach ).
So, it is perfectly normal to see temperatures peaking in the 90c range, but having it peak up to 100c is not normal. You likely have an improperly installed, improperly configured and/or inadequate cooling solution. Let's go through these possibilities,
Clear as mud?
Well, that's kind of an overkill (and likely loud). Just set the ramp rate so that it reaches 100% at ~90c. If you need help doing this, take a picture of the BIOS Setup screen with these parameters and I will try to help you (please have them displayed in English; I cannot interpret other languages in photos and screen captures).
P.S. I use Arctic Silver 5. MX-4 is good too.
