If you managed to knock off the cpu fan then you may have broken the pins that hold it down. you may need a new heatsink. mrblazito May 28, 2010 8:54:55 PM How can the cores reach 90C+ but the cpu itself only reaches 40c? what are you using to read the temperatures? DaeM May 28, 2010 11:41:32 PM i was using everest ultimate and now switched to coretemp got myself a new cooler this afternoon and reapllied the thermal pasta after cleaning the processor cap things seem to be working fine now OCed it to 3.4 GHz idling at 30-35C and 50 under load so i think problem solved! thnx for the input guys appreciate it Can't find your answer ?
