    Heatsink high quad core temps

    Hello all,

    I got myself a quadcore and wanted to overclock it so i set about reading the overclocking thread and decided on upgrading my heatsink + fan. In the end i settled on a scythe ninja

    http://scan.co.uk/Products/ProductIn...oductID=296802

    It fits into my case and i have the 120mm fan strapped to the side blowing to the back of the case where i have a second 120mm fan blowing out. Now i attached it as the quad core guide said with a thin line of paste down the centre of the chip and bolted down the ninja. Now i thought that i have serious cooling I can overclock this baby however my resting temps are 54-56 on 2 cores and 50 on one core and 52-54 on the other core. Ive tried fidiling with the bolts by tightening different screws but none of them dramatically reduce the temps. Also when i run prime 95 i get core temps in excess of 72 degrees very quickly so i stop it. Now the ninja itself doesnt feel hot so i feel something is not quite right. How could i fix this? Is it the paste? How bought smoothing off the core or the heatsink? How do i make better contact?

    thanks

    erm in the arctic silver blurb wasn't it a cross for quads? Anyway most people seem to smear a very thin amount of AS all over the CPU.
    2nd computer gigabyte P965ds3p, 7770 E2140@2.9ghz, corsair HX520 6 years stable, replaced now with E8400@3.9ghz and will overclock more when I'm bored.

    Re: Heatsink high quad core temps

    Its a thin line, through the middle, from side to side (the sides without the key holes, Dual core is the same but from key holed side to side)

    less is more and it can take several days of heating up and cooling down for it to properly settle.

    Also, quad cores run very hot.
