Re: Q9450 high idle/load temps (2 of them)
Well I was at a loss tonight when I took the Q9300 back to Fry's Electronics tonight. On my G33 chipset motherboard and my 780i motherboard, the CPU was reporting high temps. Tried it uder water cooling and my Big Typhoon. Both times with multiple reseating and they were 50 idle. They plugged it in at Fry's and the cpu was reporting 28 through the BIOS. I don't know. I will wait and get a Q9450. Don't know if it was the chipsets or BIOS's or whatever. Still strange.
