Hello, Am I seeing the death of my Q9550? Core #0 & #2 show 100 degrees, never changes, Core #1 & #3 fluctuates from 88-93, auto settings, no OC. Have a zalman cooler, are all these temps too high?

I would dust everything out and re-apply thermal paste. If that doesn't help you can try a different cooler but 100 degrees celcius is really hot.

"rds1220" has said it all. What thermal paste are you using currently if any at all ?

Everything is clean. Using Arctic 5 paste. It's 100 Farenheight, about 40 Celcius. Degrees are farenheight, celcius is celcius, just saying, lol.
The cores are running 100,90,100,91 the 100's seem to never change, the zalman was just installed.

bought the cpu used, used to have a e8400 that was nice, always ran cool with factory cooler even when I OC it. Have this one OC to 3.2 much better than the auto settings... Thx

Something is very wrong. When you installed the heatsink did you clean the old thermal paste off the heatsink and CPU and rub it clean with rubbing alcohol? Also did you make sure the heatsink is on right and fully seated? Lastly is the heatsink fan working?

The heatsink was brand new, never installed. All the old thermal paste was cleaned away. Fan is working. I was getting odd temps with the old CP heatsink too, but it was more like 122,109,108,109 farenheight. Thats why i changed the heatsink to hope it would lower and level out the temps. Thank you.

100 Fahrenheit is about 37 Celsius and that's totally acceptable

I don't think you have anything to worry about if the PC is not shutting down

what program are you using for reading temps? I use Core temp. sometimes the temp reading program will not function with your comp. it all depends on your bios. but usually if your comp. is not shutting down to over heating you should be fine. try and find another temp reading program that will be compatible with your comp.
