Prime95 stopped working the second core due to a hardware failure on one of it's test, I think my CPU is bad. thoughts?
No it's not it's user error use this much TIM
Use the size of 1 of these:
If it is still producing bad temps, when you put your head next to the H80, is there a sound of a pump?
have you tried increasing fan speed?
Have you tried taking of the mounting plate and remounting it?
What Vcore is the CPU running at?
If its running auto place Vcore @ 1.05V or somewhere around there
Is it hot in your room? How hot?
Lots of questions i could ask.
