H50 odd temps between cores


Recommended Posts



Installed a Hydro H50 cooler on my new Core i7 920, running at default clock. I was kinda wondering if the temps shown in the included pictures, are good enough? Note the odd tempature difference between the cores... That's the only thing that worries me. I removed the original thermal paste and used Arctic Silver 5 instead. I followed this guide to the letter.


So the question remains if I put too much thermal paste on the CPU, or perhaps either the cooler or CPU aren't entirely flat.

4c difference is nothing, if you expected all cores at the same temp you will be waiting for a loooooooooooong time.

ive had a 10-12c difference between cores on my 2 quads until i lapped the CPU. intel has high corners on their chips and it can cause differences. but realistically 4c is nothing to worry about at all.
