I'm new here and wish that someone could give me some advice on my current problem.
First off, here's my setup:
Asus striker II extreme
OCZ vendetta 2 cpu cooler
OCZ ddr3 2gb 1600 MHz platinum
Asus 900 ultimate gamer case
2 x 9800gt
Vista home premium
The "problem" is the heating quad core. Ambient temp is 20'C, case air flow is good. I could also bet my left nut that the cooler is seated right.
None of the parts are oc'd (yet, because of this current issue).
There is no unstability at all and the CPU temp in bios is 31'C.
Asus probe II shows 27 celsius on idle.
BUT it is the core temperatures that I am worried about, here are the temperatures other programs give me:
Thank you for your reply.
It's just that I have no experience on overclocking or core temperatures since pentium4 and I've heard of people running non-oc'd 45nm cpu's around 50'c with stock coolers. And the vendetta 2 is supposed to be at least a bit better. Core temps of 65'C on full load won't leave me any room to OC if I have understood all the articles I've read. And this setup was especially bought for at least minor overclocking.
Oh, and also the 10'C temp differences between the cores make me feel uneasy...
