    quad & high temps

    just upgraded my rig with a new abit ip35 pro and a GO stepping quad cpu with retail heatsink & fan.
    Switched on and alarm sounds so into bios and temps at 85, switch off check heatsink reassemble and i get the same result.
    Any ideas?
    thanks

    Sounds like one corner of the heatsink isnt on properly. take it off, reapply the paste and refit the heatsink, and dont be scared to push the clips in hard, and then turn them clockwise to lock them.

    Thanks
    Even though i had thought that and had taken it off and back on again then when you posted went back over and checked all the connections they appeared okay.
    So i thought i would try 1 more time and now getting 40*c at bios no system installed yet so happy that the problem is solved (although i think i will upgrade the heatsink)
    Thanks

    Question Re: quad & high temps

    Another quick quad temp related question.

    I've noticed a 5-6 degree temp difference between cores. Is that an acceptable difference, or should they be more uniform?

    These are the temps from CoreTemp at idle, stock voltage, FSB 334.

    3006.00 46 45 40 43
    3006.00 46 45 40 43
    3006.00 47 46 45 45
    3006.00 46 45 40 43

    clock speed - 3006.0MHz
    FSB speed - 334.0MHz
    multiplier - 9.0x

    Cheers,
