I recently swapped out my old stock cpu cooler for a nice new one.
Hooked everything up, posted and Temperatures all read between 25-35 Degrees. Besides from core 0, which is stuck at 60. doesnt fluctuate or change like the others at all.
My question is, should I be concerned about this? Or is it safe enough to say that since all the other 3 are well below danger, the 0 one should be fine...?
Also, This is probably my fault. The new cooler wouldn't fit on my mb, so i drilled a hole in the mobo and bolted it in. I know, stupid, but I had an identical backup, so I thought might as well. If i did scratch at something, should I be concerned?
I did boot onto windows and leave prime95 running for about an hour, temps stable...
Well considering you did drill into your mobo which i really wouldnt suggest,. The motherboard like any other chip boards are made of 2 pieces sandwitched together, and inbetween, lots and lots of tiny copper cables running about
However as you're able to boot into windows then no harm done, i imagine you may have damaged a sensor
If it doesnt fluctuate or change at all that's all i can think of. If it's constantly at that temp for some odd reason then still theres no worries, CPU's are fine at that temp
Just make sure your cooler is fully in contact with the cpu and it should be fine
