weird Q6600 core temps

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
There seems to be another post on this topic, but it was months back, and my problem seems to be a bit more severe.

The temperature readings I get for my cores (with Core Temp v0.99) during 0% load are:
Core 0: 37C
Core 1: 33C
Core 2: 30C
Core 3: 36C

I know that temperatures usually have 3-4 degrees difference, but Core 2 sometimes drops to 27C! A 10C difference with Core 0. This 7-10C temperature difference is also apparent while under load.

I currently have my Q6600 OCed at 3.465 MHz and I have replaced the stock HSF with a Freezer 7 Pro. Could it possibly be that I messed up seating the Freezer 7 Pro? So, if I reseated it I could achieve around 30C for all my cores under 0% load? Or, are these temperatures normal?

yeh that's pretty normal, just try re-seating your heatsink and applying the thermal paste in the quad core way. Across the 2 cores in a single line.

Mine is currently folding @ 61-61-56-55. Also i hear lapping it helps the difference, but for me it just bought all the temps down, so i'm not complaining.

Those temp differences are way too drastic. You need to reseat, and might I recommend a lap job. Those cores are not all getting even pressure. I can't guarantee 30C on all 4, but they shouldn't be that far apart. They should be within 2-3C of each other. Of course, the closer the better. I'm running a Q6600 @ 3.0 with a TRUE, all lapped, and my cores are 38,37,35,36. You should prefer closer temps like that. If reseating doesn't do the trick, and you're sure you have even pressure on your chip, then it's definitely an uneven IHS problem. Get a lapping kit here, and get everything on a level playing field. Just make sure you apply TIM evenly and don't overso it! Good luck and post back and let us know!

You might want to consider relapping either your CPU or your HSF, you could get better results. It sounds uneven to me. Just a suggestion.

My Q6600 is just as weird with different core temps. Lapping it didn't solve it either. It's not a big deal.

Sounds like a good suggestion to me. My lap was pretty half-assed . I can't lap my HSF because i don't have one, water block.

Is there a FAQ on this? Which way is "the quad core way"?

EDIT: Nevermind, found it.
