I have a feeling my cpu might be bad. It runs pretty hot at 98 degrees on a full load. Hopefully when my new processor arrives it will fix this. Ugh I hate waiting for snail mail.

If your CPU heats up to 98C with CM V6 GT cooler then you haven't installed your cooler properly..

Reinstall cooler and don't apply too much TIM.. (just a rice sized spot on the center of the CPU)


CHEERS..

CHEERS..
Agreed, Remove the CPU cooler and reinstall it with the perscribed amount of TIM above. Just make sure you reset the pins on the CPU cooler so it mounts nice a tight on the board. I've done this a bazillion times this past week trying to get my rig to not BSOD I should be a CPU Cooler ninja or something like that by now

I agree with re-applying the TIM & re-seating the CPU Cooler too as I OWN & USE the Cooler Master V6GT!
(look at my system's specs)
Don't be afraid to tighten down the CPU cooler ALL THE WAY DOWN on the springs (unless you start to hear cracking)...this will give you the best contact surface.
Also use the TURBO setting for the CPU Q-fan control management in the Bios settings so that when needed the fans
will run at full speed & no slower than half speed at all times.
(its not that noisy-screenshot below)

As far as the amount of TIM to apply, I always follow the TIM instructions...such as Arctic Silver 5 which I use.

Applying Thermal Compound:
With the triangle mark on the substrate pointing down and to the left, apply a line of thermal compound to match the red line in photo QP2.
Make the line approximately 1 millimeter wide.
The line of thermal compound crosses the quad or dual cores horizontally as shown with the metal cap removed in photo QP3.

Since heat from the CPU cores travel directly through the metal cap through the compound to the heatsink, it is much more important to have a good interface directly above the cores than it is to have the metal cap covered with compound from corner to corner.

Do not use those usual methods of applying TIM if AS5 is used. It's too thick and won't spread correctly.

If AS5 is used, you should spread it evenly over the IHS with your finger (What I have been doing for at least 10 years, with any paste) or use a credit card.

Oh I haven't installed the v6 or q9550 yet. This is my old ass pd 940. I reapplied with AS5 and it is stable. The nb voltages are good now too. I upped it a few notches.

I have never applied thermal paste with my finger. Let me tell ya why.

There are oils on your hand that heat up when energy, heat, etc touches it. Same reason why you don't put your fingers directly on sodium halide light bulbs. The oils may cause hot spots. Always apply with something else.

Glad to see that you know enough to know better (no offense turrican9) than to put oil into the mix...and you are correct on your info.
I NEVER use my fingers either, but put my finger into a plastic
sandwich bag & do it that way when tinting the surfaces with TIM prior to
the final installation for faster break-in time.

Tinting the Heatsink and Metal cap:

"Why tint the heatsink and metal cap? Simply put, it will lessen the break-in
period. If the break-in period is reduced you will achieve maximum performance
in less time."

I have always used my bare fingers I have very dry fingers.

Some will probably say, what about skincells? Lol! Skincells are everywhere, even on that plastic bag you use. They fall from our body all the time, and they are too small to affect the heat transfer between the cooler and heatspreader

I have done it like this for at least 10 years, and my temps has always been where they should be. And oil on my fingers... naahhh... Not enough to affect the TIM. There is something on whatever you use.

My most important point was anyway, that when using AS5, it is better to spread it out before the HS is mounted.

Depends on the person I guess. No doubt that there are some greasy finger types on a OC enthusiast forum haha.
