What is your tempurature and what cooling device are you using for it?
Mine is reaching temps of 82c and higher and yesterday it finally turned itself off!!!!
I'm running it with BFG GTX in SLI and on a MSI P4N Diamond mobo. Why is this getting so hot?
I did the paste over again, and it's perfect and I'm using a zalman 7000b. Is this not good enough? Am I the only one going thru this? I'm flipping out over here.
Would a bigger heat sink help? Or go water cooling? You mean to tell me that who so ever gets this chip has to go thru the same thing?
At idle it's 60c, then when playing games, right up it goes.
Thanks guyz
 
Welcome to the world of Prescott.

Very good after market cooling / water cooling is recommended with these chips as they run stupidly hot.

Sounds like good heat sink... Whats case do you have, you need a perfect airflow with Two 7800 right under this Presshot!

What are, case/ room temps!?

Something isnt right about your setup. You shouldnt be that hot. Pressies run hot, but the newer ones dont get this hot unless something isnt done properly. My first guess would be that your heatsink isnt seated properly.

More likely an airflow problem. Most people think they only need fans blowing air out of the case. The worst is when they have the side fan, right over the chip sucking all the air away from it.

Thats probably part of the problem, but he still shouldnt be hitting temps that high. He certainly shouldnt reach the point that it shuts off. I played around with a 670 a few days before the hurricane hit. Used the factory heatsink and didnt have temps nearly this bad. The factory heatsinks can be tricky, I have a feeling hes not making good contact.

Ive knoticed with all of the coolers out there that just a little extra paste can be ban for temps. That cooler should not be doing that horrid of a job even if there is low case flow.

Make sure that the cooler is firmly in place and is getting enough pressure against the chip. Also, It does not take much paste to make proper contact!

It can be very tricky to get the heatsinks mounted properly to this socket. Ive got a feeling its not making good contact. If its sitting there idle, it should only run at 2.8Ghz so theres no way the temps would be that high unless its not attached properly.
