Core 2 Quad Temperature

Today, I just replaced my stock intel HSF with a Hyper Master TX3.



The thing is that when I use my stock intel hsf, the temperature is consistent all cores at load and idle.

Stock HSF IDLE =

Core0: 40C
Core1: 40C
Core2: 39C
Core3: 39C

STOCK HSF LOAD =
Core0: 70C
Core1: 70C
Core2: 68C
Core3: 67C
___

HYPER MASTER TX3 IDLE =

Core0: 40C
Core1: 40C
Core2: 37C
Core3: 34C

HYPER MASTER TX3 LOAD =
Core0: 61C
Core1: 60C
Core2: 54C
Core3: 48C

___

How come my core 2, and 3, for the Hyper master is so much different than the Core0, and Core1? -_-

Answers will be appreciated.

  1. Bump.

    Help anyone?

    Is there a solution to fix this huge temperature gap of 5-12C?
  2. Bump please
  3. Are you sure that the HSF is installed properly? It looks like one pushpin is not fully seated.
  4. cool fan!

    Well, it's not falling off, it's sturdy, so I don't think that's the problem.

    Not falling off doesn't mean that it is properly installed and secured. You need solid and even downward pressure on the CPU heatspreader to ensure maximum cooling efficiency. I would remove your cooler, clean off any excess thermal paste from your cooler and your CPU using isopropyl alcohol and cotton wool buds or a lint-free cloth. Then reapply your thermal paste sparingly. You don't need too much since the idea is only to fill in the tiny microscopic gaps between the two surfaces. Too much will have an adverse effect. When you're done the paste should be so thinly spread that its almost see-through. Then attach the cooler again ensuring that you have good even pressure and secure it in opposite corners - do one corner and then the opposite corner instead of going around in order. This ensures it is seated correctly. Try this and then post back with your results.
  7. Hmm seems like 1 push pin on the bottom left wasn't all the way push down.

    Now my temp =

    IDLE

    Core0 38C
    Core1 38C
    Core2 37C
    Core3 38C

    LOAD
    Core0 55C
    Core1 54C
    Core2 52C
    Core3 49C

    I did put too much thermal paste, it gave me a supplied thermal paste which was 1/4 full, and i used all of it.
  8. have you installed thermal paste ???
    it can really make a difference.
