I am sorry to hear you are having problems but let me help you with your query.
Please note that the temperature your processor has is completely normal. 86F- 93F is 30C-33C which is just fine.
Intel® Processors have been tested under heavy and full workload to make sure customers will have high quality units. It is also important to say that the temperature you are currently getting is normal since the processor can go up to 78C (176F) without any problem. Overheating is considered when the processor temperature reaches up to 92C or more but the system will automatically shut down at that point for security purposes.
As mentioned before, you are under the normal temperature of the processor but If you want to check something additional, you can try with the instructions below:
- Check if the unit worked before. If it didn’t most likely is an integration/compatibility problem.
- Verify if hi low overheating siren is on after rebooting.
- Run PIU/ cpu diagnostics tool and Provide the results and discard possible overclocking
- Discard incorrect integration; fan is seated properly, remove reinstall fan, no obstructions affect the fan.
- Verify fan is clean from dust.
- Verify fan is connected to correct header
- Check fan speed and noise: ticking, high pitch, erratic noise.
- Update BIOS
- Reapply TIM
Thanks for your reply. That's reassuring to hear regarding the cpu temp. I'll ahead and check out your suggestions to make sure everything is in line correctly.
I had a program crash on me and I feel like that shouldn't be happening with a brand new system, hence my question. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks again.
So here's what I have so far:
I ran PIU/cpu diagnostics nad it failed almost immediately:
Detected CPU Frequency is --> 3.44514
CPU Frequency Passed!!!
--- FSB NOT Supported on this Processor ---
--- Running Base Clock test ---
Detected Base Clock --> 101
!!! --- Base Clock test Fail --- !!!
The IPDT Version = 220.127.116.11.MP-17-11
Can you explain this to me?
My BIOS is up to date.
Intel Processor Identification Utility identies my processor just fine.
Fans are clean, they're pretty new. No erratic noise.
Also, apparently, like you said, I was wrong about the temperature. There is no overheating.
Are you familiar with Prime95?
I ran that test several times. The first trial, I had a worker fail after 4 hours and 37 minutes.
The second trial, I ran it for 4 hours without a problem.
The third trial, I had a worker fail after 1 hour and 43 minutes.
The fourth trial, I ran it for 7 hours and 19 minutes without a problem.
These are some mixed up readings.
So with all that said, any suggestions?
