Hello to all Im new @ this so please dont throw me under the bus.
I have a Cool Master V10 and an i7 930 ( not overclocked ).
My idle temps with HWmonitor ( C0- C2=42 and C3 = 37 ).
Core Temp and Real temp are also reading the same as HWmonitor.
Now is Speed fan is reading the lowest @ ( C0-C5 = 25 to 26 ) while the system temp says 37c and CPU 29c AUX 37.
So which one is right? Everest 38 on the stabilty test. Aslo under full load with everest my temps got up to around 83c but for about 2 seconds it hit 87 so I was wondering do I need to check the Coolmaster V10? because of the high temps under max load. Also forgot to mention while playing Metro Directx 11, 4x 5970 ati cpu temps reached up to around 62-66 is that ok?

Why would anyone throw you under a bus?

Anyway 87C is too hot, is that Prime95 load? Its recommended that you keep a Core i7 930's temps below 73C, I would try remounting the cooler and make sure you've applied the Thermal paste correctly.

No it runs idle at 42 when I play games around 59-64 but when I did the full load test it reached 87c for about to seconds then stayed on 82

Yeah, Prime95 is considered a full load test.....

Like I said 73C is the recommended limit.

Reinstalled the cool master v10 with Artic Silver 5 and did a stablity test and my max load temps hit 64c and I ran it for about 5 mins, I not overclocking yet but going to start looking in to that. Thanks for all of your help omgitzfatal
