Back in 2006 when I built my E6600 PC, I noticed extremely high CPU temps. After a quick check of my setup I noticed one corner of the heatsink was not making proper contact.

Get the answer RavenXE July 29, 2009 3:31:16 AM Like jaguarskx said check your heatsink fan installation and make sure the fan is blowing in the right direction (not inside yout case). if it doesn't work try your original cooler maybe the heatpipes leaked if it's the case they are useless and you need another cooler jayson1019 July 29, 2009 6:19:12 AM Okay, I had to take the mobo out of the case to properly seat the cooler, now im getting low to mid 60s, is that correct? and everest gives me 10 degrees less then coretemp. Which one do i trust? edit: the cpu is now* overclocked to 3.0GHz And the cooler fan is blowing right into one of the case fan. There is like only 3cm of space between them, is that bad?

As long as that case fan is blowing out rather than blowing in, and neither causing an obstruction to the other, no. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
