    Well, I set the affinity on one of the othos to 0 and 1 and the other to 2 and 3. Nothing produces more heat than orthos.

    About the coretemp thing, it's actually a known issue that Arthur is working on for the 0.96 release. The affects many people and might be due to some trivial setting in the BIOS. Do you know of a piece of software that can read your BIOS settings and dump them to a text file? I know the P5B allows you to save "OC Profiles." I'd be cool to get them in text format and compare mine to yours.

    Sh*t dude, who really has money to burn? You only go around once in this life, what's the point of dying with $$$ in the bank? You do have a point about the free replacement though. Oh well, too late now.

    How does Everest fair with Quad Cores? That's what I've always used (though the old version despised the chipset in my laptop)

    As someone on another forum so aptly put it;

    The aim in life is not to arrive at the pearly gates in a perfectly preserved body, but to skid sideways, motorbike in one hand, chocolate bar in the other, smiling crazily at St Peter, and scream, 'Woah, what a ride'

    Well comments about loss of warranty aside... I think that its a great result! Reduction by 9C for one of the cores - I reckon thats fantastic.

    You can also get better cooling results sticking your system in the freezer, doesn't make it a good idea either though

    If you do some bios shots, Ill compare with mine.

    I do get what u saying, maybe cos Im not that experienced etc I just dont take as many risks. The way i wud have approached it though is like Clunk said: get the cores as close together 1st, cos they were 6C off to start, something wrong there right? And then maybe if u needed/wanted it lower then do a bit of lapping. Well done on gettin it there anyway, u did get them much lower in the end

    If you use the bolt thru kit for your heatsink, you can tweak the cores so that they are all within 1c or so of eachother using coretemp.
    As bolt thru kit costs £4/$8 v q6600 £336 i know which route i'd explore 1st

    luck

    Have to admit I like lapping, warranty or no warranty

    Has anybody ever sent off a CPU to be replaced then? I personally have never read on a forum of somebody ever doing this.

    To the OP - well done on getting the temps down and within a few degs of each other.
