Works pretty damn good overall, but now i've got this problem. I cant help but to laugh... b/c its always someting.

Should grabbing some thermal paste do the trick? I was hoping it wouldnt be that tempermantal (no pun intended). Or should I let it run for a while at low OC to sort of "settle back" in?

If you pulled your heatsink and reseated the CPU, that means you should also have cleaned off the old thermal paste and applied brand new paste to the heat spreader. Did you? If not, you most certainly have bubbles and inconsistencies in the paste from removing/re-applying the heatsink without re-applying the paste. Time to do it again, this time with clean/re-apply of new paste.

Your temps are squirrely. You have 20C between the hottest and coldest cores. Under load, you ideally should be less than about 8-9C max difference. To much differential and you might end up with thermal stress on the CPU die. The highly variable temps are probably due to your thermal paste hack-job. =)

plus one, take it off, clean it good, add new TIM, (get non conducting kind, no offense but you not knowing to do that everytime you remove a heatsink means you probably havnt done it before, better safe than sorry, dont want to put too much on)

put a good pea sized amount (or enough that once the heatsink (levelly placed) will spread the amount perfectly around ATLEAST the die area (center of the spreader) or you can take a credit card and nicely and neatly spread it, less is more, but dont use too little.


just use enough to replicate what you had before.

^no offense taken. I'm a noob at this!


will do, that has to be the issue. I dont even get to 4.5GHz anymore without getting an overclock error msg.


Thanks guys! issue confirmed.

thanks for the response, but as stated before... the RAM issue was solved by reseating. Also.. i stated that i tested each stick one by one and they all booted the system fine, so they were working. Thanks for the reply though!

ya replied before i saw the issue


but it appeared it was the issue, since reseating it only correcting a seating error, (user error) smile.gif

Will definitely do..

oh also... just to give the background to those temps, which i should have done (sorry)....

Those temps were taken while I had a big music project running. the program spreads the load for the virtual instrumetns i'm using across the cores... but it might not always do it evenly. Thought i should point that out. Not sure if it makes a difference. i'm still going to reapply the termal paste (and not cake it on lol)


Here are the temps w/ nothing going on, just Win 7 and Mozilla open.
Core#5 still looks just too hot to me. so i'm guessing its from the paste not being on properly. thoughts?

Always check temps doing the same thing lol

need to make sure there results are comparable. idle, full load, or atleast doing exactly what it was before hand.

i use plain old idle, (fresh reboot) and prime95, AFTER a 5min timer or 10 min, depending on what I need to check.


keep in mind that after new TIM has been applied it can take up to almost 100 hours or so to reach its full ability the checmial process of breaking the TIM down or however it works, it needs to be heated and cooled a few times over the break in period (some people say it dont matter)

you will see a few degree drop at idle and load in about 1-2 weeks though after a fresh application
