Is it too hot?
1. Is this supposed to be a 100% stable OC that you run 24/7?
2. Complete following equations...
Lt = Load Temperature Increase = (64C - 19C) = +45C
Tj = CPU Tjunction / MAX_TEMP = ??C
At = Maximum Ambient Temp**
Headroom= Tj - (At + Lt)
**be generous about your maximum ambient temps. I set my HVAC temps to between 22.25C - 25.50C in the summer time and there are still days when it will get upwards of 30C in that room...
In general, it could also be a lot of different things. It already sounds like you have some poor contact related issues with the way you've described the fit... especially considering you've got an IFX backside cooler on there as well. If you get a TRUE-120, it will drop right in and you can still use your IFX-10 backside cooler (it's how I have my rig set up, using the same m/b, on a Q6600 chipset) however... :shrug:
You mentioned the heat-sink was lapped but the processor wasn't. Obviously you have to fix your other problem first, but whenever you mate these two devices together you should snap a picture like the one below to see how they fit. Trying to do the same thing with the naked eye is never as "telling" because blinding yourself, lol.
And, the damaged circuit, whelp, that solves all your problems, lol... pics?
