    Big typhoon cooling

    I have a E6700 in an antec p182 case being cooled by a big typhoon VX cooler with the default fan and about 3/4 way to maximum fan speed. I got the E6700 to 3.12ghz atm but upon running two instances of Prime95 torture test the temperature shoots up to around 64 degrees celcius on speedfan from around 35 degrees. I am using arctic silver 5 for my TIM. Isn't 64 degrees a little high for the temp? it seems stable enough but the temperature seems a little too high.

    how much tim did you use? it you use to much it can be as bad as none. also try using intel's thermal analysis tool. that should give you a better idea.speed fan can be unreliable some times

    I used around a small bead of rice and spread it thinly across the surface of the CPU using my finger covered in clingfilm.

    On TAT it shows 65 and 66 for core 0 and 1 with an overall of 72 on speedfan (speedfan shows 64 and 64 for core 0 and 1)

    Check the cooler is mounted correctly..other than that it might be down to an uneven surface on either the cooler or the chip or just a bad week code.

    I wouldnt do that cling film trick personally i prefer to let it spread by itself.

    I would expect the cooler isnt mounted correctly, it must be evenly mounted make sure its all touching..
    STEPS:
    1- Clean exisiting TIM thoroughly
    2- Apply New TIM (small amounts spread correctly)
    3- Seat Heatsink correctly.

    What VCore are you running? My 6700 is running at 3.56GHz and uGuru Clock shows temps at 46 Idle, up to 63 under load running Orthos. System is rock solid and temps reported by different products vary and are really a guide, methinks.

    Certainly check and re-install the HSF.
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.

    Thanks alot for the replies, I shall resit the HSF and post the results. To clean the TIM off can I just use methylated spirits?

    Okay it appears to work now, I tried to overclock and I got to 3.55ghz and went back down to 3.3 to be on the safe side, the temperatures seem normal to what everyone else gets but for some reason when I put on 100% load on the Intel thermal tool windows comes up with blue screen saying hardware error, contact manufacturer, strangely enough 90% works fine with normal load temps. My voltage is currently at 1.4250 and I am at 330X10, nothing else is changed in the bios atm.
