    No not OC at all, just stock. Not sure why it froze?

    And how could I get core temp down?

    thanx again ^^

    Sounds like you just need a better cooler if your temps are that high as stock

    You can still Try to raise DRAM Voltage and then MCH Core ans see if it resolve the problem.
    Leave RealTemp/CoreTemp open so when it freeze you can see what were last temps measured, just to make sure it's not the temps.

    High temps may be cause by many reasons.
    Too much/not enough thermal paste or it is not applied properly.
    CPU heatsink is not seated properly.
    Not enough airflow inside the case which cause high air temperature inside.
    Not enough airflow around the case.
    High ambiant temperature.
    And the of course the CPU heatsink itself, but I think the stock heatsink should have been sufficiant for stock speeds, never had a quad so I can't really say.

    So you mean a better CPU cooler?

    And also, if I raise the DRAM and MCH core voltages that could fix my heat problem? when it froze Core Temp was showing my core at 71c when I started to run another program during prime 95.

    Also, what should my Core temp be at approximately when running stuff like prime95 with all stock speeds?

    thanx again guys 8)

    Yes, I meant a better cooler if your temps are in the 70C range at stock, that is terrible. Is this stock Intel cooler?

    no, its a Zalman CNPS7700-CU, Its about 2 years old, it was on my old E6600 that I upgraded from to this Q9550 I have now. I figured it would be better than my stock cooler that came with it.

    Do you think I should try the stock cooler, or does this older Zalman I have just need to be replaced with a better cooler?

    And uner Core Temp it says I'm idling around 41-45c and under load like with prime95, thats when it hits 71c.

    thx again ^^

    71c itself shouldn't be the cause for the freez then.
    Leave the new cooler as last resort, first make sure all the rest, case airflow/temps, CPU heatsink is seated properly and termal paste is properly applied.
    You can simply try an open case with a room fan blowing on it and see what temps you get then, if they significantly lower than you need better/more case fans.

    No the DRAM/MCH Core voltages I thought for the freezes.

    kk thanx again for fast replies guys 8) just a note the zalman I have has a speed regulator knob that comes off of the heatsync(which I have set to max) and my max rpm I get out of the cooler is 1800rpm which sounds kind of slow to me, is that slow or normal?

    And I only have 2 other fans in the case, one in the front blowing over HDD and one on the top sucking the hot air out. They run over 2000rpm all the time.

    thanx again guys, you have been all so helpful and patient with me 8)

    I had CNPS8700 at 1300 rpm, and truth is I didn't see much change with the Mugen 2 that's not a 2600 rpm 93CFM.
    Maybe I'm wrong I need to look what were my temps then.

    I had the AC in my house on the past 3 hours and a fan blowing infront of my open case and it only dropped the core temp 3 degrees. So gonna try re-seating the cooler. When I first got my Q9550 I first cleaned off the cpu contact on the heatsink with the special removal kit I bought on Newegg. As for how much arctic silver I put on, I made kind of a square on the inside perimeter of the cpu(not real close to the edge of cpu) and then put a dot of it in the middle of the square. you think that was too much/little of thermal compound to use? How much do you apply to yours?

    thnx again ^^
