    Well, I'll start over. :)

    FWIW, coolermaster case with 4 fans running. I have room to add two more, but with a stock system... I'm thinking I really shouldn't even need the extra two I added. (But the bottom mount PSU makes me kind of wonder)

    Also... bear in mind, whenever I get into the bios, temp runs at 37 to 38c. Constantly.

    When I first fired it up (vista business), stock HS, coretemp shows heat ran around 48c at idle. I thot that was kind of high. So added the two extra fans and a freezer pro 7 HS. Virtually no difference. Case open... no difference.

    Now, it's varied over the months I've used it. (which is a grand total of about 2 months) Or rather tried to use it.

    Right now, it's idleing at an average 55c but constantly fluctuating. Not even close to stable. The temps in coretemp are constantly moving in all four cores. Fluctuating 2 to 5 degrees every second. (I'm assuming coretemp refreshes once a second) From a low of 48 to a high of 62. Back and forth, constantly. And each core has a variance of maybe 5c. No where near uniform. (never was)

    (Again, remember whenever I get into the bios, it's a stable 37-38c)

    What is odd is the fact that whenever I try to load it the temps actually drop as much as 5c. Now I don't have much in it to really load it, I'm talking about just running a search for a file or whatever which doesn't take more than a minute or two. It's almost like the smart fan doesn't work until it's under load. But the fan is running.

    Another oddity is that sometimes when I reboot it, the temps run maybe 10 degrees lower and average 48c. It has hit a low of 38.

    CPU temp and core temps are a whole different beast. And it is the Core temps ONLY that matter, which you will not see in the BIOS

    Stock cooler is the issue here for sure, I would save up and get a decent one for sure.

    And like I said, have you tried a remount? Maybe you used to much paste last time, or did not get it locked down good.

    Orthos will load your CPU if you want to load it up, if you meant you dont have anything to do so.

    Again CPU temp does not matter, it is the core temp you need to watch (Under 65-70 LOAD)

    Yeah it's certainly not gods gift to the heat sink. :)

    Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

    But newegg users said it did a decent job. Since I'm not OC'ing it "should" be fine. But I do plan a re-seat. I have a mount ordered to get around the sadistic 755 mount.

    Newegg.com - XIGMATEK ACK-I7751 Retention Bracket - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

    I'll have to pull the board but to me, it's darn near impossible to be sure you got a good seat when you try to do it in the case so I think I'd have to pull it anyway.

    Ya, that stock mount method is terrible for sure!!!

    Do users say that it is decent for quads?

    Is that your price range or just what you think you can fit in your case? I think a Tunuq would be better, but yeah there is plenty better. I do think that is one I often see mentioned as being used by users. Just never noticed if they had quads or not.

    But like you said if you do not plan to overclock you should likely be fine.

    Hey, when you did mount the stock one did you clean off the "cement" they put on there and use your own paste? If not, you will need to for sure this time anyway when you remount. Thinner is better!

    Ya, Best to pull it out always. I use a bracket as well, the thermalright one with my DD waterblock

    Oh yeah. Some say their stock quads were running as low as 25-27c idle with it. But again, that's stock. No OC. Which is all I'm really looking for. Wasn't really going by price, just what users were reporting. And since I'm not "planning" to OC, sounded good to me since I was running at 50c. Not really critical, but worrisome.

    Of course the way this thing gets a little cooler under load... could be the smart fan isn't working right. I keep forgetting to disable it to see what happens. If that's the case, I would assume the mobo has a problem or the HS itself is flaky.

    Yeah I used arctic silver and the 2 part cleaner. Just a small strip across as recommended. I'm just hoping it was a bad mount. But the way the oem mount is set up, it's practically impossible to be sure. I mean, when I first saw the mount I said to myself... I can't wait to see me do this! No idea what that sadist was thinking when he designed it.

    Hopefully that plate will lock it down solid. And If I ever need a bigger HS, it'll be a simple swap.

    Ya, that does sound good. I never run stock so I dont have a clue what old or new ones even look like tempwise

    Yeah that sounds like you did it good. Likely just poor design/mounting components. I think you will have much better luck with the one you are looking at

    Ok, looks like the back plate will be in tomorrow.

    But (I said it would bother me!) :) I ordered 4 sticks of XP2-9200 5-5-5-15 2.1V Mushkin. Think you can give me some settings to work with? No hurry since I probably won't have that for about another week.

    Right from mushkin.

    But seems I still have the problem. Shut it off last nite (Machines usually run 24/7) and just tried to boot... looping again. :/

    Ok, put 2 sticks of mushkin from the old machine in and booted right up. (Set specs best I could). But not sure if that's the problem since it was intermittant with the crucial.
