No, those look about right under load with air cooling.

Yes, this is normal
When your CPU is not working (idle) its saving energy.
You can turn this off in the bios if you want to.

Those temps to look strange to me, rather high to low very quickly... what run on prime did you do? and why is you cpu underclocked???
Guess thats you problem

well heres my temps for stock on stock air cool

also what does the sensor movement mean?

I'm also going to point out the difference in your core temperatures, that looks like possibly bad contact with cooler if i'm not mistaken (i probably am)

well with prime95 max heat consumption, it run 65 degrees full load. 3ghz and 1.3vcore.

i buy new coolers all the time and non work. everyone says badly seated. this cant be the problem every time, could be mobo be bent of the metal thing that holds the cpu down, that looks bent till i instal the cpu and pull the metal thin stick to lock it in place.
could these be the problem.

its already disabled. i think the quad core is broken, i cant even get it stable at stock speeds never mind stop it recuding its multi automatically. am in huge trouble.

my voltage is also lowering itself from 1.28v to 1.64 and back to normal every couple of seconds

Recheck your BIOS and see if your settings were kept. If your PC failed on an overclock it may have set itself back to the "safe" settings. As Nlclock stated you can disable this in the BIOS.

On my MOBO...."CPU EIST function: Enables or disables Enhanced Intel Speedstep Technology (EIST). Depending on CPU loading, Intel EIST technology can dynamically and effectively lower the CPU voltage and core frequency to decrease average power consumption and heat production".

If your PC went haywire then you may have defaulted back to a last known good BIOS setting...my board does this.

Take things STEP BY STEP. You may want to try resetting your CMOS. On my board it is done by "jumping" the two prongs at the lower right hand corner with a screwdriver or similar item for a few seconds.

After you have done this start by doing NO OVERCLOCKING or voltage manipulation and see how your computer works. If it is running fine then just go with BABY steps and see how she does. There are many schools of thought on how to approach OCing but I take things VERY slow and try to learn just what each thing does. I am SLOW and METICULOUS when doing this as I am just learning.

Give that a shot and see how things go.

Oh and one other thing....I am not familiar with Quads but you MAY want to make sure your CPU cooler is seated correctly and that you used the right amt of AS5 on your chip. You need a VERY SMALL dab.

The reason I suggest you start with the reset and the NO OC before removing your cooler is because this takes very little time to do without having to remove your cooler.

Hang in there buddy......some folks with Q6600 knowledge will be able to comment on the temps as I have no exp with them....but folks will be able to help you....just take your time!

i cant even get the quad stable at stock speed and stock volts, even vcore of 1.4v.
i want to downgrade my bios to f5 but i cant get onto the gigabyte website through any browser i try, i also need at bios.
