    EDIT: I had left my response to wazza up while I went to make dinner and saw that Acebmxer's response...which has me concerned. I'm in the process of following up on that....

    Great info...So it sounds like I should be a little concerned w/ the CPU temps...I guess it's time for me to upgrade my stock CPU cooler (yep...I still have the stock on there). presuming I do get a new one in the next couple of days, should I still lower my setting in DVID? I've not messed w/ it before, and honestly wouldn't know quite where to set it...but if a CPU cooler resolves the issue I'm ok w/ that plan of attack.

    thanks a ton for the advice!

    yes try and lower cpu voltage,its alot for stock clocks imo,and your at your limit really with 3.2ghz on stock cooler,just go in bios and set cpu voltage to normal then look in the window to the left and see how much cpu voltage its using and post here,then i can try and help you in finding stable dvid voltage,it will help reduce temps a little at least

    oh and double check your coolers fully clicked down,those intel push pins are useless imo

    This is a new case, and I moved over all my components the end of December, so I'm wondering if I messed up the cooler during that process...

    My next step are:

    1) get the info as requested by Ace
    2) reset my cpu cooler (then buy a new one)
    3) set my vcore to normal in bios (presently set to auto and it looks to be at 1.28)

    it might use more or might use less when set to normal,can leave on normal and boot into windows then see how much is used in easytune/advanced/voltage1 then you can add or reduce if needed later with dvid


    EDIT: this is where you should be temp wise at stock clocks and using good quality cooler like thermolab baram or megahalems cooler

    Yeah I would try reseating the cooler or make sure all 4 pegs are pushed down if its the stock cooler. Then you can try finding stable voltages using dvid which will help reduce the idle temps. Like wazza said 3.2 with HT on is pushing it with stock cooler. Till you buy a better cooler you can disable HT or lower the stock clock to 21x133 would require less volts and still just as good till you get a better cooler.

    Correctimundo

    Can you load up your game or Prime95 / LinX or something and look and see what CPU-z show vcore as underload.
    the second screen cap I did was actually done w/ my game still up on my second monitor...As soon as I saw the red LED come on I did a prt scr...

    After getting in there, at least 2 of those pegs were not in there very well on the stock CPU fan...I must have jarred something loose when I swapped cases a while back...That has been corrected and the temps are posted below (albeit w/ nearly zero usage)

    GA-X58A-UD3R v2 / CPU Over Voltage LED = Red-sys-spec-post-reset-jpg

    But y'know...All this talk of the CPU @ 3.2 got me thinking...Isn't the stock rating on this 3.07? What causes that to shoot up to 3.2ghz? Regardless I will be ordering a new fan before the night is thru and should have it early no week.

    I sure am glad I asked the question, and I am very thankful for you guys!

    Nice to see you got this sorted out!! And nice you caught it before anything happened to your CPU!

    Be sure they click into place and lock, if they don't click when you push them down you need to push harder or reset them and try again.

    To reset all you do is twist counter-clockwise, then pull up, then push back down again and it'll click and lock into place. Turbo boost is how it jumps to 3.2GHz, that is by Intel design

    looks better now,you still could lower voltages though if you use dvid and normal for cpu voltage,but thats up to you,make sure you get a cooler with a backplate,it will be a pain if your case doesnt have a cut out for a backplate it means you will have to remove the mb to fit it,but once fitted its much simpler to fit the heatsink,im lucky i have a cutout on my case to fit one

    About an hour into game play and all temps are in the low-mid 60's (occasionally high 50's)...WHEW!!! I'm still gonna pick up a new CPU cooler tho...I don't believe my case has the cut out (Thermaltake L10), but I haven't looked yet...so get a cooler w/ a backplate...got it.

    I wish there was a donate button, cuz you fella's saved me some $$ and a LOTTA swearin'.

    (I still gotta load that BIOS that Ace set up too...just seems I'd rather goof around...but I will!)

    Thanks again!
