    Exclamation Think I toasted my CPU

    Good Morning! Long story short, I was following the advice in various threads throughout this forum, updated my base frequency to 175, left the multi alone, system was stable. Played about 3 hours of FallOut New Vegas last night without a hitch, plus the usual benchmarks. Temps were fine, got a little high during stress testing (86 degrees). This morning I tried enabling C1E support just to see what it would do, if the system would still boot. It did and when I loaded up RealTemp my temps were 90 to 100!!!! I shut down, cleared my CMOS, went back to a no-overclock setup and my temps are still at 88!!!!

    I removed my Noctura, cleaned it, reapplied the thermal paste (Noctura NT-H1) and I'm still at 88 stock no load!!!!

    What on earth did I do? Is there a way to re-calibrate my temperature sensors?

    Please help!

    For what it's worth, I don't feel any excess heat in the case. I don't have a way to measure the temp, but the air coming out of the Noctura is quite cool.

    CPU should be fine. Running at that temp for a short period should not do any damage. There is nothing wrong with sensors IMO.

    But now that everything is at stock, new thermal paste, RealTemp is telling me my new non-load stock temp is 88 degrees. Before this "blip", my non-load stock temp was closer to 50 degrees.

    I'm afraid I'm going to burn out my CPU just using Word or Firefox! LOL That's why I asked about the sensors, seems like they're outta whack, I mean how could my stock, non-load temp be 88 degrees?

    he said his sensor mess up, even at stock speed and it's still reporting 88c.
    Usually mobo goes first before the CPU, so I think the temp sensor screw up.

    Just to 4GHz... I've been there before no prob. Like I said, it was stable, the only thing I tried doing was re-enabling C1E just to see what would happen... and this is what happened... uggh... I feel like an ass, should have left well enough alone.

    Your temps are showing in (F) not (C) on the test below.....

    yes you can RMA the board as long there is no burn mark indication. You can check the back of mobo backplate socket.

    I realize that, but it's still way high for stock, non-load. Don't you think? I'm using a Noctura DH14... the thing cools off jet engines! ;-)

    if you have 86F at idle then it's equal 30C. It's about right.

    Have you always been using F setting or you just accidentally switch over without notice?

    LOL okay so I maybe a real a-hole here... sorry.

    I thought everyone was saying not to surpass 85 F under load... was that supposed to be 85 C?

    And yes, I may have switched to F accidentally... ;-)

    Your temps are fine!

    FYI, whenever people are talking about temperatures inside a computer on an online forum, they are almost universally talking about C, only us backwards Americans use F.

    Most people here don't seem to worry about the loaded stress test temps to much until they are hitting 85C or more, which is 185F.

    I'd toss in the obligatory dumb American comment, but I are one.

    Yes, that is correct.
