SO i just installed the h50 in my pc... i was seeing core temps around 50C... now in coretemp its showing:
BUT my motherboard (EVGA x58 SLI LE) is showing on the LED on the board a "actual cpu temperature" of 25. before i installed this, it was reading like 36-38.
Did i do everything correctly? seems to me as the temps are STILL HIGH with the watercooling... is something wrong or am i just crazy? please help, im new to this all... thanks!
i think the "turbo" is enabled in the bios, the dummy oc is disabled...
hyperthreading is on...
all the fan settings are set to MANUAL and at 100% (so the pump gets full power) but it doesnt list like CPU_FAN, JSYS1_FAN...etc... so i dont know which is which or how to set those individually...
I'm running 4.0ghz HT ON @ 1.28v and i'm idling around 38-41c depending on ambient temps and 71-73c under 100% load after 15 passes of IBT on maximum.
Also about your EVGA readout I'm pretty sure its about 10c cooler than actual temps I know that my e760 is way lower than coretemp or realtemp.
Hope this helps!
