Calling the Pros: Crazy high Q6600 Core Temps. - Page 2

post #11 of 29
my recommendations have already been given above (check thermal paste, fitting of heatsink on processor, fan speeds) so i will try to help ya with the vista problem, are you clicking on the shutdown icon on the Start menu? if yes thats standby by default not shutdown, and ur system may be going back online cos of some software which doesnt let it go to standby mode. to do an actual shutdown try clicking the right arrow to the right of the icon and select shutdown, that should do the trick.

Here's the way to change it to a real shutdown instead of standby.

even at 2.4Ghz at 100% load the cores still reach 75ish.....

Reseat and apply some quality thermal paste.

just a thought, check your bios and see if under the Power tab (maybe under APM configuration, depends on your bios) you have a setting for what the computer's state will be after a power loss, if its previous state try setting it to power off, may be causing a glitch with your windows/bios combo. if that is already to power off then im just out of ideas for now on that one

Edit: After looking it up it could be due to various ACPI related problems, try messing a bit with the acpi settings in your bios after having a look here

I don't think that is normal... A stock cooler should be able to keep a CPU at stock cooled.
