Same motherboard, different temperatures? :s
Before I RMA'ed my Asus P5B-E, I got two weeks of enjoyable life out of it. My CPU ran at 28-30 degrees idle, and 35 stressed. Then I overclocked it and it ran about 35 idle and 45 stressed.
Because the motherboard died pretty quickly, I got mine replaced yesterday (FINALLY...) installed it all today and I'm back, but I've seen that my cpu temperature is now 40-44 degrees idle, without overclock.
The setup has not changed. My graphics card still runs around the same temps as far as I know (35 idle) and the motherboard is 32 degrees. Do you think this is a sensor issue? I know that I applied a bit more thermal grease on this one than before (Scythe Ninja by the way), so that could also be something to look at, but I doubt that would cause a temperature rise of 12-ish degrees.
What do you think?
