Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum and I thought this was a good place to ask for help regarding my problem. I recently got a QX9770 cpu. I use this on a Gigabyte GA-X48T-DQ6 mainboard. However I seem to have very strange temperature readings. I'm using a Zerotherm Nirvana cooler with artic silver 5 thermal paste. I have remounted the heatsink several times with no improvement. IDLE TEMPERATURES: Bios says the temperature is 33°C PC Health monitor(which is a program delivered with the mainboard) 24°C Real Temp 2.5 : Core 0/1 41/41 2/3 32/35°C HWmonitor : Core 0/1 51/51 Core 2/3 42/45 ( The TMPIN1 is 24°C which moves in sync with the PC Health monitor cpu temperature) Core Temp : Core 0/1 51/51 Core 2/3 42/45 Speedfan : Core 0/1 46/46 Core2/3 37/38 Everest : Core 0/1 51/51 Core 2/3 42/44 The heatsink feels cold, I have tried 3 different coolers. I tried my old intel stock cooler for e6700 which resulted in a 48°C idle in the bios and 70°C+ when running Prime 95 Thermalright IFX-14 was 50°C idle in bios (no fans attached) I could potentially blaim this to bad mounting. However seeying how I'm positive the Zerotherm is mounted correctly, this situation confuses me, if anyone could give me any info and help it would be appreciated.
