    Default High temps on Xeon w3520

    I am using the Gigabyte X58 UD3R with BIOS version F6B.I have my Xeon w3520 overclocked to 4Ghz using 1.25 Volts in windows, and I am using a Scythe Mugen 2 with two Ultra Kaze 3k RPM fans in push pull.

    Using Real temp 3.19, my idle temps are 45C and load temps using prime95 are around 80C(which is around the same as my old I7 920 C0 stepping at 4Ghz using 1.35V, except my idle temps are 10C higher on the W3520).

    I put the w3520 back to stock and it is idles at 35C and loads at 55C at 1.056V, which seems pretty high since I am at stock and using a good CPU cooler.

    Can it be that the new w3520 temps arent being read corectly, or is my chip just really hot or defective?

    Thanks to anyone that helps.

    Does anyone else have this chip and would be able to give me their temps?

    I have a W3520.

    Motherboard: Gigabyte UD3R, bios version F5
    Stock cooler.

    Idle: 55C, load(Prime 95): 90-95C max after 10-20 minutes.

    Edit: I forgot - all settings are at stock except memory which is at 1333. No overclocking.

    I have the same results as Shotweb
    I'm using bios F8d.
    Deactivated turbo boost, thermal montior, C1E and EIST, applied some artic silver and now my full load temperatures are at 80ēC. Still too high, never had temperature problems in my case before..

    I have the EX58-UD3R
    All remaining settings at stock

    It could be how your cooler is positioned on your CPU socket. I know with my Heatkiller 3.0, it was basically overlapping the capacitors and causing it to lift a few milimeters.. enough to cause a 9-10°C increase in temps.

    I simply rotated it 90° and went back to normal temperatures.

    What does your vCore say under CPU-Z? (idle/load)

    i dont know about zeons but my d0 idles in coretemp at 40c on the hottest core dropping to 36c on the last core,full load its 72c on the hottest core down to 67 on the last core thats @3.8 everything enabled turbo c1e ect,youll lose a good 5c @idle with c1e enabled as it reduces cpu volts=less heat when cpu is idle shouldnt affect overclock...im using akasa nero cooler single fan try re-seating your heatsink a few times,also its best not to put any thermal paste on the copper heatpipes but apply a small thin strip to the aluminium parts inbetween the copper heatpipes like ive done
