Why is my mobile chip so hot?

Ok so we all got the now so disclosed mobile barton but honestly Im not inpressed. I can do more but it burn a lot hotter than my desktop chip ever did. I got the IQXFA0348XPMW chip, which is supposedly one of the good mobiles. I can do higher at lower voltage but the damned mobile chip burns much hotter than the desktop chips. At the 1.7v I got my newest mobile chip in, I have to use the slk-947u with a 92mm tornado fan so I can play games on hot without the chip melting the socket. Well I do live in florida and the temp have been hitting the mid 80s now but I do keep my house nice and cool. So what the hell am I doing wrong with these mobile chips? Thanks.

  2. Yeah that is wat I am thinking but I am already so hell-bent on getting this chip to work. My other mobiles do 2.5ghz with very low temps except this one. Needs to be smacked up a litte if you know wat I. mean

  3. is the heatsink hot? what i mean is, maybe re-install the heatsink, maybe not enough/ too much paste the first time you did it...

  4. The heatsink does get VERY hot. I know how sensitive AS5 get with overapplications already and I only put a little line dab on the die.
