I am having some trouble with my new build, and want to get it worked out by BF3 time on Tuesday.

I seem to be having problems with different programs reporting very different core temps. I upgraded my motherboard to the newest BIOS, re-seated the CPU a few times, and I am still getting weird temp readings. The picture only shows mostly idle temps, but I was doing some stress testing before and Speedfan and CPUID ( under the temps under my ASROCK motherboard) would report about 55-60C but core temp and realtemp would report 95-103C. I am sure I have the CPU seated correctly, and when it is stress testing, I felt the heatsink and it doesn't feel like it is 95C, more like 50-60C, and I know thats not where scientific, but I am sure the heatsink would be pretty warm to the touch at almost 100C. Any insight would be appreciated. I just updated my profile to reflect the new system, finally retired my old 4.2GHZ core2duo.

*edit* haha forgot to add the picture
I just upgraded to a 2500k this weekend too, with the same issue! My old system is still in my signature.
The ASUS software included with my p8z68v-pro shows temps 8-10c lower than realtemp, hwmonitor, fanspeed, etc. I was getting load temps in the 90s using these programs, which would be the 80s in the ASUS software. I, too, reseated my heatsink several times to no avail.

I found one of these at my local Fry's for $10 (open box) to use until my HeatKiller mounting hardware arrives. I slapped an old antec case fan on it, and it dropped my load temps by at least 20 degrees. So yes, Intel coolers are VERY junky

I just don't understand how I am getting temps from 95-100C and it is downclocking my CPU within 45 seconds of starting prime 95. This is at stock settings. It is downclocking it to 2.4ghz. Is something wrong, or is the stock heatsink really that terrible? This has been reseated multiple times is on there pretty tight with some as5, and still no improvement.
