Default Re: Thermal Paste

A. Could be bad contact and you used either too much or too little thermal paste. Take the heatsink off and check the contact patch. Remember you only need about a half pea sized blob.

B. 1 week = 168 hours so 1-2 weeks is correct.

C. You would likely see increased heat output upgrading to the faster cpu.

D. I doubt you were idling at 18C... Sounds like a bad temp sensor.

If I help you with something, you think I'm the bomb, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the star under my post.

That was my core temp reading 3 days with my e6600 OC'ed prior to my install running 3 days straight.

01:24:20 05/12/08 3000.06 33 36

this is from today, and its been running for about 32 hours straight.

I did the same TP installation with the same amount. I am just confused cuz my e6600 was OC'ed to the same speed that the e6850 is at stock?

Are you sure the fan is mounted correctly?

Try wobble it, if it moves then remount it.
Back to stay?

Default Re: Thermal Paste

all depends on teh Vid of the chip. Your new chip could have a higher vid than what you had your older chip set at. Also could be a bad temp sensor on the old chip.
Nothing to see here.
