Just finished my setup. I know AS5 doesn't cure for a bit, but these readings look odd. And which should i be watching then? The CPU temp, or each individual core temp?

You want to look at the core temps. Is that idle or load temps?

I just put all the parts together. That is idle btw. At load they move up to about 65 ish.

Seems so high. And why is there such a difference between the CPU sensor and the cores?

Actually, i will do a primp 95 test, and re post. Either way though, they are so high. Perhaps i will re-apply the thermal paste.

Get core temp and make sure the readings are the same as that EVGA utility.

Here is the 2 compared. Basically the same temps.

I still feel like they are kind of high...

I have good Flow, are coming out of the Radiator is 80F, and plenty of air in the case.

That's interesting, all the temperatures in the EVGA utility are exactly 2C higher than real temp.

Again, those temps are idle? From now on only show load temperatures, as they are much more relevant to how well your loop is performing.

Now take that chip to 4.0 and see what temperatures you get!

Here's at full load. A vast improvement from before, but still awfully high.

Before I begin overclocking it, i want to have good low load temps. >_<

What should I do to lower them?

How do you have the Heatkiller oriented? I think it may be overlapping some of the capacitors near the CPU socket.

If that is the case, you need to rotate it 90°.
