To High Idle Temps for i7 920 OC 3.6
  

Hi,
I have a Intel Core i7 920 processor. I am overclocking the same with Riva tuner. But I am finding that my system is getting much heated as compare to older times. I am not able to figure out what is the reason behind the same. I had increased frequency of the same a bit but now the temperature goes up to 80 degree and keeps on increasing. What should I do here.

Do this. Open your system case and then clean the cpu fan. If the temp goes to 65 ? the it is really hot. The fan on the system is not extracting heat out of the box. Try to change that and and some heat sink on the processor. You must replace the same after some months frequently which makes the system much more stable in overclocking.

The principle of OCCT is a fair test to 30Min determined stability of the system, if the PC hangs during the test (freeze the screen for example) the pc will not be 100% stable. If the PC does not crash, it is 90% Stable 10% since the book is how to torture that really proves the stability of the system. It must be fair to run the test for first 30 minutes and the check back the result.

That is right if you system fails in OCCT test then you need to update your bios which should set the Vcore to default. Which I think it is minimum at 1.75. Here your CPU requires a large voltage. So for that it need to be optimized first. Or else if your system get overheated then your processor might die. I made an update to my motherboard ABIT AI-7 with MS-DOS and a boot disk. It works well now.

The turbo boost can mount the frequency of the process if the weather permits but generally mounted in frequency involves disabling 1, 2 or 3 heart. The frequency that is mounted through the coefficient multiplier so if you on your Overclock coef multiplier applied the higher the processor will no longer be mounted as it is already at max. For advantage of the turbo boost your mounted BCLK while keeping it lower than 20x.

Do not put too BCLK high because if the CPU is stable . It has BCLK 180 x 17 which gives 3060Mhz full load it will BCLK has mounted 180 x 20 = 3600Mhz and this frequency there is nothing. So to be on stability (still on my example) it will do intend to argue the stability test has 3.6GHz and once on you then applied a lower coef in the bios and used the turbo boost.

Did you try a fair Clear CMOS. In my case the level of temperature is 160x21 = 3.36Ghz processor. The current temp lies on 40 degrees. It stays stable when I watch divx movies. Now after overclocking in game it increase to 45 to 50 degree and warmer. So I had tested the same in OCCT where it lies on stable 54. This was usually my fan which is weak.
