Let us know if you more questions

Good luck
yep, 710 can also unlock cores ^^

Using AC Freezer 64 Pro rather than stock cooler, with cool master paste I would not expect such high temps, I have 80mm rear case fan and 2 side fans one controlled by case sensor. MB is GA-M720-US3, F4 bios, VGA Sparkle GT9600 (stock speeds) Let me know if you need further info. Any advice help would be be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
man, reseat the cooler and clean it

Knocker, 80C seems extremely high for full load. That temperature may not actually be accurate. Can you post a screen shot of speedfan while the machine is running at full load? I recommend downloading Prime95 or OCCT and running a quick test to monitor temperatures. Perhaps speedfan is displaying incorrect temperatures. Try a few other applications and compare the temperatures. Check out Coretemp and Everest if you can.

Let us know

Good luck

I have re-seated twice, I may go back to stock cooler to see how that performs.
I would like to OC this CPU as I had my old Athlon XP2800 running as a XP3200 for several years max temp 55 under heavy load.
Could I have a duff cooler or CPU?

Knocker, it is possible that the base of the cooler may be damaged (scratched/dinged). If the surface is convex or concave then that will also prohibit the cooler from working properly. Same goes for the IHS (integrated heat-spreader) on the processor. Have you thought about lapping both surfaces? It's not always recommended that you lap but it is something that will HELP lower your full load temperatures. If you're thinking about it, here is the first guide that I followed here on OCN:

Hope that helps

Luslero, it could simply be just a inaccurate reading from the application. 80C seems extremely high...I can't imagine your machine still being on while running at that temperature especially for a 45nm Phenom II. These processors really dislike high temperatures. At 70C it should have already locked up...

Good luck
