Intel Core 2 Duo, Prescott Edition beware of the red glow... - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I was hitting 72c also at load until I realised the heatsink hadnt seated properly (one of the 4 clips on the stock intel h/s hadnt fastened properly). After an hour or so of frustration & not being able to get the cooler to fit I turfed it for an aftermarket. Funny thing is though, I got the same temps on bootup again (add to this the fact I had also happened to swap to a different board), but a closer check revealed the same problem..ie it hadnt seated properly again (& Ive built tons of systems..)..

A reseat again (with another dab of arctic silver), bootup, & sweeeeet....30c..

dont take a C2D above 60C or the chance of cool smoke effects increases significantly.
