it wouldnt be a badly seated HSF if the heatsink wont budge at all right? and i mean ive taken it off and like 4 times lol.
is the OCZ Vendetta 92mm a good aftermarket cooler? btw in prima95 at 3.6ghz i get 64c..is that safe for a 24/7 oc? with the vendetta what would my temp be vs the intel hsf 64 c temp, btw i want the vendetta because i guess i can put it on w/o taking my mobo out, (and i get 10$ off it) otherwise id get the xigmatek but im gonna be worn out with cash
64c is a little high for idle temps. That would mean your load temps would be at or over 70c. You should put a better cooler on it to bring those temps down. Xigmatek makes a nice 120mm cooler w/ a backplate for ~$45.
Assuming you calibrated your monitoring software properly, and that you want to keep some headroom for hotter ambiant temperature, i'd say 64c is pretty limit for core temperature and a bit too high for CPU temperature.
OP, are you using SpeedFan to get the temps? often times you can get the GPU and CPU cores confused.. if your GPU reading is the same as the second core reading then you are actually reading the temp of the GPU core.
