Have you checked the CPU's IHS?? Maybe the contact between both surfaces is not good, hence the high temperatures.
Also, which program are you using to monitor core temps??
I'm going to assume you have inadequate cooling or your ambient temps are too high. There are plenty of people who can get 4ghz+ on E0 stepping w/ air and temps no higher than 70
try reseating again.Not sure about the Q9550 temps they could just run hot
Don't get frustrated...
Maybe there is not enough ventilation inside the case, trying adding a few fans or managing your cables better.
The IHS is Integrated Heat Spreader, the thing that covers the processor. What kind of voltage are you running through it? Quads are going to be hotter than a dual, that's for sure since it's basically double the chip in the same package.
IHS is the top of the CPU to put it simple. Its what your putting thermal paste to.
<--look at my avvy there are IHS (there just lapped)
How much voltage are you using? Here, try RealTemp it's very good for reading your cores: http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/1325/Real_Temp_3.00.html
That is what I was going to suggest, using Real Temp to monitor your core's temperature. That's the one I used with my previous E8500 and now with my actual i7 940.
Seems about normal with Linpack.
you raise voltage and your temps will go up, what was your E8400 temps ?
No, if you raise Vcore, temps will go up.
You must also bear in mind that the E8000 have a TDP of 65 W, while your new Q9550 has a TDP of 95 W, which explains the higher temps. Also, do you know what is your ambient temp??
The Q9550 is essentially two E8400s, so you have to expect temps accordingly. Just because it runs hotter than your E8400 doesn't mean the processor is shit. You have to expect quads to put out nearly double the heat of duals.
You think that 9550 runs hot? I7 runs way hotter m8 I run water on my quad personally. But u say u should have ran q6600 but that would have ran much hotter than the 9550 I think somethi g isn't right in your setup somewhere just my opinion
Definitely, the Q6600 would have run way hotter than the Q9550...
That is between 20 and 24 ºC. I think your heatsink is not up to the task properly. In fact, for that CPU I always recomend a TRUE or a Noctua NH-U12P (also the NH-C12P if the chassis isn't wide enough for tower type heatsinks).
If you really want I would swap you a q6600
I also run the same cooler are you sure your mobo is running the fan full speed mine never gos above 62C
also linpack nails your processor with a ton of heat and for a quad it is far worse
looking at your temps in bios would be another accurate way, wouldn't be any load on the cpu though
I know what the issue is already, the Hyper 212 isn't capable of handling the Q at all. http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/1701/vigor_monsoon_iii_lt_dual_120mm_cpu_cooler/index6.html There is a link to testing of the Vigor Monsoon, which is a 212 with dual fans and a shroud. The testing there is on a QX6700 equivalent test system. If the dual fan version with a shroud performs like that, I would totally assume similar temps to what you are getting out of that chip.
I have to think you are saturating the cooler. Try adding another fan or better yet add two better fans, and throw the CM stock fan in a drawer or the trash.
Nope, your temps are still fine. You have some overclocking headroom still. It should be noted that some processors just run hotter. I have an E8600 that runs hot as hell, but it goes like hell! I've seen countless of other processors with better temps than my chip at 4ghz and using more voltage.
I run a q6600 at 3600 with no problems with mine
get two good fans and strap em to your cooler...what $20 max with shipping?
If u wanted a lower heat quad core, you should have gotten the Q8200S.
