I have recently purchased some equipment from yourselves - to build the following system:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6300
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3
Graphics Card: PowerColor Radeon X1950 XT
PSU: Hiper 580W
RAM: 2GB OCZ 6400
HDD: 250 GB Western Digital
Unfortunately, when idling in windows the CPU is idling at 76 degrees celcius, and rising.
I have followed the instructions on mounting my heatsink - to the letter. Growing concerned, I consulted with a professional computer technician. I was informed that there was absolutely nothing wrong with my installation of the heatsink and CPU (Being overcautious, this was reseated as well). The technician advised me that perhaps the CPU its self is faulty or defective.
I am posting here to confirm if this is your thoughts also, and whether the CPU should be RMA'd with yourselves? My order number is available upon request (pm or email).
