Installed the q6700 in my rig last night (still have to change my sig..) using some AS5 and my Zalman 9700. Everything seems to be looking good so far. I stressed it for about two hours just to see what kind of temps I was going to end up with - Idles around 30-32C, cores 0 and 2 reached 56 at their highest using prime 95+.
I had an e6750 before and the delta between cores under load was about 3-5C. I am seeing a 6-7C difference between the cores on the quad, is this ok?
I can't remember what temp my e6750 was pushing under stock..is 56C ok for a stock quad?
Can't wait to OC this thing, hopefully get it up to 3.2 today
