    ok, ran Prime95 and recorded these temps:

    Full load.
    72c - 67c - 71c - 71c

    idle
    all temps hover around 50c

    Owch! I would strongly advise you not to overclock at the moment with those temperatures.

    Do you have any thermal paste to hand so that you could try and re-seat the processor HSF?

    Something seems off, as my temps on the stock HSF were about 40c idle and 62 load.

    yea ill redo the thermal paste. i had the heatsink off today and that might have messed with it.

    i redid the thermal paste, and i am monitoring temps right now. they are still sitting at about 50 at idle. isnt there an amount of time before the thermal paste really works to its best?

    wait now....i see now up above all those temps there is a tempurature for GPU which is been going between 43c and 44c.

    is that the temp you wanted?

    realtemp should only tell you CPU Core temps. I've atached a picture of what it should look like at the bottom of this post.

    Depending on what paste you use, it may improve as you use the PC. Arctic Silver 5 will improve by a couple of degrees over time, not enough to worry about really.

    Before doing this, on the BIOS main menue, select "Load optimised Defaults" save and exit, just so we're on a blank canvas, then reboot and re-enter the BIOS. All this sounds like alot to do, but its worth it. Be ULTRA careful to be precise in entering. Write these settings down in an easy to read way or better, print them. Enter them, then read through and check to be 100% sure.

    I'd recommend you disable the Full screen Gigabyte logo, so you can see the POST screen showing CPU speed, RAM amount etc. Re-enable it later if you like. The setting is in "Advanced Bios Features" Set full screen logo to [Disabled]

    Just to check that you have the correct voltages going to the CPU, please check the following in your BIOS in the "Intelegent Tweaker" section. Adjust the items with the values in red to the ones I've written. This will make sure your board hasn't gone mad and started over volting things.

    Enter everything as seen here into the Motherboard Inelegant Tweaker section and its sub menus. I have highlighted in bold italics the settings that need to be changed from auto, and added extra notes by the side of a setting if necessary.

    Enter everything here as shown, then save and exit.

    Procede to re-test your idle and load temps in the same way as before.

    I used artic silver 5 and it seemed like the temps were a few degrees cooler. I may take a trip out to a local computer superstore tomorrow and get my hands on a coolermaster like yours.

    and yea i have realtemp 3.0 that pic is of 2.7 it has a spot on it in 3.0 for GPU temp and mine has been pretty constant at 44c.

    Ok, if you've entered those values, and everything's booted ok, you can safely repeat the tests with prime and see if that helps any.

    To be honest if I had more money and could choose my HSF again, I'd go for one of the following, the TrUE and Scythe being my top choices.

    • Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme (TrUE)
    • Scythe Kama Angle
    • Noctua NH-U12DO
    • Zerotherm Zen FZ120


    All these are reasonable in price and cool great!
    You may have varying luck trying to find one of these depending on where you live.

    In England, most local computer shops I've been to suck for heatsink choices unfortunately. Never managed to find a good local retailer sadly. Thank God for online shops and debit cards.

    i think i need to get off the computer for today! jeez Ill be back tomorrow and im gonna get a new HSF unit. so hopefully i can cool these temps off. i bumped up the fan speeds on my antec 900 case so now i have them all running at high. cores are still holding around 50c at idle. but at load, they were 69 - 66 - 70 - 68
