Well my VCore is Auto set to 1.35, I've had no problems with that. I'm at 3.2GHz and I took my BT off, cleaned the BT and my CPU with 91% isopropyl alcohol, put new AS5 and I tightened the BT down as hard as I could.
Last time I didn't get it on there very well and it could slide around ont he CPU if you pushed a little bit on it. Now it stays put and I think I put the right amount of AS5 on it. I've had problems in the past getting the AS5 on right, like I'd put a dab on and let the heatsink spread it but it would always end up uneven. This time I spread it along the entire CPU heat plate, put the BT on tight and now it seems it dropped my temps a little bit. It also might be that my room is cooler than it was the other day so I'll see.
My idle temps have dropped from 40C to about 35C at the moment. I've also been told I need to allow the AS5 200 hours for it to work it's best, this correct? Will waiting 200 hours drop my temps any?
Also, in ASUS Probe II it shows one CPU temp, is that for both my cores since I have a Dual Core CPU? In Speedfan Temp3 rises from 36C to about 55C the second I run two instances of Prime95, then if I minimize Speedfan and restore it Temp3 locks at 125C and that can't be my CPU is it? Could it be an error on Speedfan's part?
