This cannot be right....
I thought Intel's chips shut down before that.
forgot the thermal paste on the heatsink?
Shit he must of forgot the heatsink altogether.
Naw, I got acrtic silver shit on it. This is after about 1hr of video encoding.
artic silver isn't that great.
did you put the whole tube of artic silver on it? that would cause some major heat buildup
what heatsink and fan are you using?
Whole tube? no way.... maybe a matchead, probably less.
Using the standard cooler, not overclocked.
It idles at around 65.
Shits, my box gets up to 65 at the highest, even when video encoding and stuff
Well, the QX has higher temps than the rest of the core2s, but its not recommended to go above 90.
Yes, your computer is going to explode .
IDLES at 65? Shit. That's waaaaaay high.
Idles at 65 ? I idle at ~40.
What mobo are you using? If it's an Intel get their desktop utility and see what you get from there.
evga nforce 680i
I've noticed consistent temperature drops of between 3-8 degrees Celsius when replacing zinc oxide paste with silver paste. Maybe just putting fresh paste on it is what makes the difference -- I swear that shit wears out after a while.
