Hey I am a bit confused with some of the temperatures with my pc. I just got a Hyper 212+ cooler and I was wondering if the temps are ok. I overclocked my CPU to 3.6ghz ,but my temps seem really weird. My CPU temp is around 53 Celsius 100% load but my cores are around 76,74,71,71, MAX. Why is their such a huge difference almost 20 degree difference in temperature.

Sorry here is current PC specs:

CPU
: Core I7 860
MOBO: MSI P55-GD65
CASE: Antec 300 Illusion.
GPU:SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 5770
HD:SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 500 GB
PSU: Antec BP550 Plus 550W
CPU cooler: Coolermaster Hyper 212

Cores are always a different temp to the heatspreader. My Phenom X3 runs around 40C idle, 50C at 100%, but the cores at 19C idle and 28C at 100%. I'm very surprised your cores are hotter than the spreader though.

Get yourself a copy of Everest Ultimate, it gives you very good temp readings!

You can throw the 53c completely out, there is NO sensor that can measure the cpu temperature, you have to rely on the core temperatures and they are too high already.
CoreTemp or RealTemp will give you a reliable core temp reading.

76C at merely 3.6GHz for 860 with Hyper 212 Plus?!!!!!

What is your room temp, thermal compound and case? Did you apply the thermal compound correctly and secure the heatsink sufficiently?

FYI, I have heard many 860@3.8GHz are at mid 60s with Hyper 212 Plus.

andy, he could have lost the CPU lottery and received a chip with an unusually VID.

Well... idk for w/e reason i'm getting a lot better temperature than i was before. Now max load is less than 60 Celsius I didn't do anything to it idk how that was such a huge difference. But yea if anyone can tell me the correct way to spread the thermal compound out on a hyper 212+ since i heard the line method doesn't really work which is what i did.

The cooler i have doesn't look like that the heatpipes are actually part of the surface that makes contact with the cpu theres little gaps in between the heatpipes as well

Method:

Two short lines measuring half the total length of the processor were placed on the two center mounting base partitions. Keep in mind that for this method, as well as the others, it is important to fill the channels level with thermal compound so that the the additional material may spread somewhat unrestricted to the edges.

I agree. My Core temp on my Phenom II X3 720 BE is usually 5 degrees cooler than the CPU temp. At idle (when it's not running with an unlocked core but overclocked at 3.4 ghz), it sits at around 27 and maxes out at around 45. My "CPU" temp shows it at around 32 and 50.

When the core is unlocked, I have to throttle down my OC from x17 to x16.5. It idles around 36 and maxes out at 50 with the "CPU" temp showing 41 and 55.
