Q9450 high idle/load temps (2 of them)
 
Well, I have 2 Q9450s and on one of them 1 core idles at 32c and the other 3 are at about 47. Under load the 3 go up to about 55c on stock speeds. On the other 3 cores idle at about 42c and one is at 50c. I've tried reseating the heatink, tried different thermal paste, etc.

I put my Q6600 in and the temps are normal. The Q6600 idles at about 34c (on all 4 cores) overclocked to 3.4ghz. I am using a ThermalRight Ultra 120 extreme. I've tried Arctic Silver 5 and MX-2.

This sucks.......

How exactly are you measuring the temps? Some times inaccuracies can occur due to the way you take the temps.

I've been using Everest and Core Temp, they are both the same.

can this be due to a bios issue with a new cpu

not sure...
The temps were the same on the eVGA 790i as the Gigabyte x48T-DQ6.

on the first CPU it was the #4 core that was lower than the other 3. On the second it's the #1 core thats higher than the other 3.

Not sure whats going on.

Nice find. I will give it a try.

Thanks

Seems really weird.

All my cores are idling at about 30-32C (with Zalman 9700NT, silent settings). On load, they range between about 40 and 44C, but I think it's primarily because of the g92 sitting right below.

Get the latest bios and make sure everything is seated correctly. It should not be an issue with both processors honestly.

I have the latest BIOS for both motherboards.

The digital thermal sensors on the 45nm chips are all screwed up, defective or whatever. It's a known issue.

Well, I got RealTemp and started it up. At idle cores 1,2 and 3 are 30c and #4 is 19c. The idle temps on the first 3 look like what they should be. Still sucks that a sensor is bad (it seems).

On the other CPU it's the same deal pretty much except that core #1 is about 8c higher than the others.

It seems to be normal with the 45nm chips. Just google around and you'll see tons people are reporting the same thing with the thermal sernsors. You can try your luck by RMA and see if you get one with near perfect sensors. But I recommend you keep it unless it's a bad overclocker.
