Massive difference between core temperatures
I just bought 3 new 110cfm fans for my pc and after installing them I noticed that there is a massive difference between core temperatures in my Q6600, Also the temperatures are extremely high for such a mild overclock (3Ghz with 2.268v). Idle the cores are at 46, 44, 35, 35 but at load there is a 17c difference between cores - 73, 72, 55, 55. Could the cpu be failing (it was bought 2-3 years ago) and when I got it I could run it at 3.0 ghz stock voltage (1.212v) now I want to put It back up to 3.2Ghz but I cant raise the voltage anymore becasue the temperature causes core 0 and 1 to fail at prime 95. I noticed that the heatsink (TRUE) is cold to the touch so I reseated it and it dropped the temp to what is listed above but it is still cold - could it need more thermal paste?
