Dual core temps differ - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
Yes they are the idle temps. 35/45c.

It just dawned on me that i have cool & quiet installed. I disabled it in the Bios, but it still slows the fan down. How can I fix this??

Make sure any other fan speed control in the bios is disabled. In my bios for my asus its called qfan. Make sure thats disabled.

If you disabled Cool n' Quiet in the BIOS, then it will override the software in the OS. All that does is lower the VCore and multiplier when the CPU load is idle (power saving mode)
As for the fan monitoring, you should be able to access that in the hardware monitoring section of your BIOS. You can either select voltage, RPM, or a profile (depending on your mobo)
If you have silverstone fans you can use the fan controller and that overrides an BIOS settings.

I guarantee that lapping wont' fix the temp differential. I was at the same point as you last year. Trust me.
Honestly your temps are fine. If those are idle temps then they are a little higher, so you may want to lap for that reason, but reseating the HS won't change that at all.
That only works if its lapped, I know i couldn't see lines on either of my proc's.

Yea that's what I meant, if it's lapped to a shiny surface. It should be flat from the factory...that's a big should though
I guess another way would be to look at the pattern of AS5 when you remove the HS, and see where the contact surface was.

I think I may have a problem here. I tried to take the screenshot at the biggest discrepancy I saw. 13C idle is the biggest offset I've seen and the 17C is the biggest load offset.





Is there anyway to remove the IHS and re-apply thermal compound or is it a "once it's off... it's off" deal?

I think I will try re-seating the HSF to see if that makes a difference but from what I've read.. it won't. Any other advice?

I've got a Manchester X2 3800+ (in my office rig) that displays the same behavior.

Personally, if it doesn't otherwise behave abnormally, I wouldn't worry about the big T delta between the cores. (I don't, with mine.) It could be that one of the core T sensors (the hot core, most likely) is horribly miscalibrated.

Hope this helps!

Thanks (rep'd) - I just installed the X2 Windows hotfix (optimizer?) and that didn't change anything. Will reseat the HSF sometime in the coming week to see if that does anything. But I think your right in that if it isn't behaving strangely, why mess with it?
