My System Specs

Default Temps seem odly high for e4400

It could be the house and the ambient temperature, however my g/f's e4400 idles around 75C and at load it can go up to 100C (hadn't noticed the temps until i attempted to fold on the machine, popped on temp monitoring software and saw it jump that high). Is there any reason it would be this high at stock speeds, stock heat sink (loose heat sink maybe?)

Thanks for the input, i want to get the temps of this cpu down before any folding occcurs

wow that's way to high for an e4400 ( auto voltage is normally to high )

Tell me about it, i was able to clean the heat sink (there was some dust caked onto it under the fan) and now it idles at 65C, though i think the culprit could be the "default" fan speed which is at only 2000 RPM. I am going to go get asus control software and increase the fan speed to see if that'll drop the temp to more reasonable levels.

Edit: Apparently with the PC Probe II from asus the 2000RPM is the highest i can set the fan speed to, now that seems a little low and that i should be able to somewhere increase the fan speed more

Vcore is 1.34V
+3.3 is 3.26V
+5 is 5.14V
+12 is 12.25V

Should i lower the vcore a little maybe, remember this is all stock

Even that Vcore with a stock heatsink should run much cooler, there is another issue somewhere. I'd check the thermal paste, may have dried up and needs to be redone as well.

i'll have to check it at a time where i have thermal paste. What do you guys use to take old thermal paste off, i have a friend who would use either a microfibre cloth or tissue paper since neither hold static charges.

I use paper towels, never had a single issue ever and I have done this with hundreds of CPU cleanings including high end units.

Alright, well next time i see her i'll bring over my thermal compound that's been chilling in my fridge, lather it back up, put it back together and hope that was the problem (so the temps are lower and so her cpu can fold)
