2500k 10c degree difference under load - Page 2

That sounds to me like a bad seat , paste didnt even out correctly .

My temps are 1-2c apart , even on 100% load .

i would reseat the heatsink and use better thermal compound , it can be tricky getting a good seat but you will get it if you keep trying .
The people that say it is normal have 2500k's just like the OP though.

I did. I wasn't anal-retentive about it, however, but I did do about 1 full rotation per side until both screws stopped.

You mean take the CPU out and plop it back in? I never thought that could be a problem, if/when I take the cooler off again, I'll give that a try.

One last question...hopefully. So is 70c+ normal for this overclock using the D14 + IntelBurnTest? Also, I get about 66c MAX on Prime95. I still feel it's higher than it's supposed to be, but what I do I know
