3rd Core runs hotter than the rest??

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Is this normal?? Did I mount my cooler incorrectly or something?

Also are the idle temps good for the Antec Kuhler or should I be getting lower? The max temps on the picture is while playing GTA 4 for around an hour.

Here is a pic. Sorry for all the noob question this was my first build hehe.

I'm not sure, but (just a guess) could the TIM have worn out around the area of the 3rd core?

EDIT: I've just noticed some irony; your username

It could be due to the coverage of the actual heatspreader on the CPU. My i7 960 used to have this same problem, and it was unfixable.

Interestingly, I also had an Antec Kuhler (620 version) and I had the same temps... Although Nehalem is known to run hotter. I tried remounting it numerous times and it never helped me, but you could still give it a try.

My old 5000+BE also had one core way hotter than the other. Reapplying TIM didn't help it, so I suspect it was the IHS as well

OP, try reapplying TIM

I used the one that came with the Antec Kuhler. So best bet would be to clean it off apply TIM and remount the cooler? So what im getting is not normal then?

BTW I got some Artic Silver 5 how do you guys like that one vs the one that came with the Kuhler?

personally i would use a aftermarket TIM i rarely use what they give me if at all.

btw if the TIM was already on the heatsink then ur problem is caused by air bubbles.

Yeah it was preapplied to the Kuhler 920. So best bet to use the silver 5 I got?

So I do the spread or the drop method? Mounting the cooler on the CPU was a b*tch

All cores will not run the same temp. It maybe a little higher than normal, but at idle I do not think it matters. When stress testing and all four cores are under a load is core 3 still that much higher? If it is then you may want to remount your AK 920 and use some better TIMM.

What program do I use to stress my CPU??
The pic I posted was just from playing GTA 4 a while.

I got another readout does this seem more normal? Or do I reapply TIM?
