Okay last night I bumped my i7 930 up to 3.6ghz. Right away it started crunching into the lower 90C temps! None the less I backed it down to the default 2.8ghz. Now for some reason it is still running well into the 80C's during the crunching. This is reporting both in RealTemp and CoreTemp.
Now I am running a Xigmatek Dark Knight on the chip. I pulled the cooler to check the coverage of the TIM which looked fine. I cleaned everything and reinstalled Ceramique TIM to the chip. As it was stated it is crunching in the high 70C's and low 80C's at the default 2.8ghz.
Do I need a better cooler? Using AMD chips for several years I am not sure what a great cooling solution is for these chips. Any suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated.
