    Now that you mention it I've had nothing but problems with the new intel stock coolers.

    your spreader is probably badly mounted... i have an athlon x2, that even has more than 10c difference from one core to another, whether another one,i have spare, and tested, has 3c difference;)

    Thanks, doesn't seem to mounted badly, maybe just design fault? the cpu contact area on the heatsink is only a circle and doesn't even cover the whole cpu!
    I had a problem when encoding videos with adobe premier, the cpu fan would go on a mad one. Ended up one of the plastic clips had popped out of one of the corners of the mobo!

    yeah, there are 2 places that are prone to bring you bad temps, and irregular core temperatures:
    -the top side of the heatspreader of the CPU, if its not flat, but bumped or pitted... happens relatively often, some series of procs are more prone to it,then others, some are even completly flat.;)
    this can be fixed thru lapping, tho it voids your warranty,when you do that
    you can test it with a brand new razor, if the proc needs that. if you seat the razor on the proc, and you see light shining thru, then its not flat;)

    -the underside of the spreader,where the die contacts the spreader.
    if its somehow an uneven amount of thermal goop on the die or air bubbles or simply an unstraight seating of the Heatspreader, youre core temps may drift from each other very badly.

    ah, these push pins are the worst invention ever! i hate them, they also dont tighten the cooler very well... its a little loose i find:D

    Thanks I'll try that tonight :toast:
    Hypothetically....
    If there is a SERIOUS wonkiness of the top side of the heatspreader, could it be RMA-ed?

    i dont really know, but i would suggest you, to simply ask the support of intel, if its possible;)
    if not, you still have the alternative to lap, so its win-win, when the lapping is done correctly:)

    will do shortly. I was just gaming on my rig so the GPU is going to be heating things up alittle so in like 10-15min i will run LinX.btw the GPU is on AIR but it still heats up the CPU somehow.

    EDIT:here you go...I see the LLC makes my voltage higher :ohwell:

    bad heatsink fans too... good casefans, but put anything in front of them and it turns in a handful of fail.

    This Zalman with its stock fan outperformed my D14, but the fan that comes with it is super loud. So I had to do something and these were on hand. I'll go with free and quiet over buying black ones;)
