I dont get it..
I did stock auto clock and left at 4Ghz, no turbo.. default vid which was around 1.33v.. and when pushing it via full stress testing loads it get up to 53-59 degrees... I just don't get it.
Do you think it is my first assumption, of it simply being the "reset of the cpu/cooler" on this new board? I re-applied the thermal paste.. as good as I usually do, I'm fairly certain..but maybe it just didn't get a smooth enough layer or the cooler isn't sitting just right? Does this make sense? All things being equal, I assume that *should* be the only factor that is causing this difference as the board shouldn't be doing this I would assume.. there is no reason why I can't run as cool as I did on the Gigabyte board, right? same cpu and cooler.. same settings...actually even LOWER when I go to stock speeds and voltages..so should be running nice and cool..
I guess without any other ideas or options, I'm left to take the cooler off, clean it up, re-apply more paste and reset it and try again....hope this works! if anyone else has other thoughts or ideas.. feel free to share your thoughts
