E2140 Temps sooooo high?!?!?!?!
 
I use to get very low temps on my processor (40C-50C) and that was at 2.5 GHz. Now if I OC it to 2.5 GHz I get past 70C :eek:

The only thing I've done recently is put some MX-2 (rice grain-pea size shape on center of processor and pressed heatsink on) and upgraded mobo bios (GIGABYTE GA-G31M-S2L). What would cause this temp rise? I have the voltage control set to auto in the BIOS. Could this be the cause?

Make sure your heatsink is attached properly.

Sounds like its a bit loose.

Auto could be the issue, as it does over volt alot.

I turned off auto and that lowered the temps about ten degrees, but still, it is hot. I could check the heatsink, but i thought I seated it well. Though it is a pain to do so I might have done it wrong. If it isn't seated wouldn't the temps just soar an the comp would shut off?

not necessarily it just might be a slight bit off the heatsink, just push down on it and make sure the pushpins are in correctly if you have a pushpin HSF

Yay! Fixed it. I didn't apply the thermal compound correctly. I've got a Xigmatek HS with the direct heat pipe thing and I found out that if you put a rice grain size on each pipe it can make a *huge* difference. Now I'm idling at 25 celsius and 32 celsius a full load! :D

For future reference 50c is not low. That's hotter than I would like, especially at 2.5ghz. I'm running 38c idle at 4ghz.

Congrats. How far do you think you can push that E2140? It should be able to hit like 2.8ghz, at least able stand like a 1ghz overclock.

Actually you should be able to break 3ghz with a decent motherboard, good ram and a good cooler. Puddle Jumper hit 3.3ghz on an e2180, but he has a p35, an AC freezer 7 pro and XMS2.

Stupid mobo of mine won't let me past like 2.6 ghz :mad:

I should've been able to go very high now that my temps are undercontrol, but oh well.
