What are your temps after a few hours of Prime though?

I bet you will be closer to 50 after 3-4 hours of Priming.

Here is mine after almost 5 hours. I also lapped mine to get a perfectly flat surface. Before my temps were almost 8 deg c difference between the cores.

I'm starting it now and I will get back to you on that.

As for lapping, that is one thing I wish I would have done with the DD TDX waterblock. I thought about while I had the system apart before the build, but decided not to. I really should have...

I've just made it a habit now. When I get a new CPU I lap it first thing.

Well, I'm not too happy...



It was spiking to 58C after 1 hour during certain parts of the testing Prime was throwing at it. Average was around 50-52C but that spiking did not make me happy.

yea prime is tough though. you will never get that high gaming. Maybe if you were encoding or something using all 4 cores @ 100% for that long - which would be rare in a real world application.

If its any consolation here are my temps @ 4.0Ghz.
