    Are you measuring core temeratures or CPU temperatures?

    CPU. core temps were all 45-50 (I actually just finally found where the core temps were lol). CPU temp is still at 55-60. I just lowered the volage down from 1.24 I think it was at, to 1.17. It also says in the bios that the CPU is running at ~3.2, but when I go into the advanced frequency settings it says its running 3.06 (which is what the 950 is specced at).
    The thermal paste I used was Arctic Silver 5 and I was suggested to use Arctic mx2/4, would it really make the difference of the ~20 degree's cooler I should be running at?

    Even with arctic silver 5,its still on the high side mx4 would improve temps a little,did you lower temps to a fixed manual setting or set to normal? If fixed voltage it won't throttle down in speed/voltages at idle,3.2ghz is correct I think with Intel turbo boost?

    Yes, 3.2ghz is with the turbo boost on. I turned it off, just to see what would happen. Still nothing. Switched the CPU FAN over to the NB FAN and that did nothing so I'm going to just assume the connectors are all working.
    I put most everything on standard/normal (off of auto) except for voltage I did manually, which is now down to 1.15 and its done nothing. After the computer has been on for 5 minutes its still sitting at 55 idle temp in bios.

    Going to upload a vid of my bios settings, I've already changed a couple things but don't want to muck around too much more incase I start screwing things up.

    Edit: Youtube / watch?v=JwTyU4g7ee4

    Jeez sorry, thats horrible quality. If its too foggy lemme know and I will hook up my monitor so I can get a better recording.

    All voltages are fine on auto except for CPU,qpi/vtt and dram if your at stock then they should be fine,if I were you I would re apply your thermal paste,apply as thinly as you can across whole CPU surface,its job is to fill in the microscopic indentations so keep it thin just thin enough so u can't see the metal surface underneath,then tighten down the cooler/header in a criss cross pattern and don't overtighten just finger tight,then see if it improves things,plug cooler fan in CPU fan header the other headers will be slower

    For YouTube vid,copy and paste the imbedded code here

    Thinned out the layer that was on the CPU, there may have been a bit too much. Temps still pretty much unchanged, idle at 45 and get much hotter after running dungeon siege 3 for a couple minutes. Just doesn't make any sense if everything is working as it should be but still seeing such high temps at idle. Getting kind of frustrated, will have to take it in and get it checked out tomorrow. Been up for 32 hours, time for some sleep :S
    Thanks for your time and assistance, if anything this at least was a bit of a learning experience.

    I think there's a cure time on arctic silver paste not sure,if so try n run it hot n leave to cooldown ect,you can also set a manual CPU fan speed from within easytune,I always do this rather than leave it on auto fan speed,just set it as high as you can while remaining quiet,usually around 1500-1600rpm,you could test with the stock cooler just to rule out a faulty corsair unit,temps might be the same as your seeing now,if they are higher then you know the corsair seems to be ok

    Yes AS has a cure time. I think it something like 1000 cycles or something crazzy like that. I have had great success with Tuniq TX-2. I suggest when trying a thermal paste or new block or new method of mounting the cpu cooler to try 1-2 times before mounting the cooler and powering on system on. This way you know if you are making good contact.

    I see some mentioning of fan headers on motherboard.. Side note Sysfan_2 runs a half speed fyi....

    Obviousely CPU temperature cannot be higher then core temps, so there may be a problem with the diode sensor or the BIOS.
    45-50 are core temps under load? Which software did you use?
