    Default E8400@4.14ghz + ep45ud3p + scythe mugen 2 = high temps??

    Hi, i made this system not too long ago and while trying to stabilise and overclock the cpu i have kept running into high temperature issues.

    system specs are:

    e8400 e0 at 4.14ghz @ 1.325
    ep45-ud3p with f10b bios
    brand new scythe mugen 2 heatsink
    hyperX 4gb 1066 ram

    now at idle the temps according to core temp are 52/53C
    if i try doing an intel burn test or occt the temps will go over 99C and reach this temperature within just a few seconds

    even with the system at standard the temps are quite high, usually idling between 35 and 40

    i have reseated the heatsink twice and reapplied the artic silver and ensured the heatsink is screwed in as tight as i feel is safe, which is still quite tight!

    as far as i can tell the temperature reading isnt false as when the cpu temps go up, so do my gpu temps. i have also used rivatuner, core temp hwmonitor, everest and all give the same or very similar results

    Any help in this matter would be much appreciated i will try to add in my bios settings later on but all my voltages are quite low.

    I wouldn't be worried about idle temps lol. But wow those IBT temps are WAAY too high... I'm surprised your computer didn't restart after hitting 90c..

    Those are definitely not normal temps lol

    well the idle temps when overclock dont worry me, its the idle temps when everything is standard, because i remember them being lower with just the standard intel cooler...

    also when the temps hit 99 the system doesnt freeze the computer just keeps on going so its quite confusing

    also with everything at standard 3ghz etc, IBT peaks the cpu at about 60C

    well 60c for IBT at 3Ghz isn't too bad. My E8500 at stock 3.16ghz gets 57-59c in IBT.

    The temps at 4.14ghz matter more, because that's when your heatsink gets put to the test.

    Get a new heatsink, that's what I think lol

    The Mugen II is a capable HSF, and you're right to be worried about those temps.

    I'd definately check the back plate mounting and re-install the cooler. You should also check the base of the cooler for any imperfections in flatness etc. Also rotating the cooler by 180 degrees and then installing the fan back on the correct end may help.

    lol well i just got the mugen as the new heatsink, and someone else with the same heatsink gets much lower temps than i do, with slightly different setup

    so i know the heatsink is good, and it is properly installed

    It may be properly installed but how much paste did you use?

    yeah.. i just saw a pic of that heatsink, and it definitely looks like a capable heatsink o_o

    Maybe the fan isn't working properly? >_>

    What about ambient temperature?

    Have you tried Real Temp? (just trying to eliminate some variables here)
