Man... mabey you should try the larger sink and hope you get a better leveled off/lapped sink.

I ran prime95's heat torture test and got an idle and max temp reading using that coretemp program.



I'm honestly surprised at your temps becuase typically zalman quality is top of the line.

What other type of cooling does your case have?

I have a 120mm fan taking in air in the front, a 120mm exhausting air out the back, and a 80mm exhaust on the top. When I get my next heatsink, Im just probably gonna get the Tuniq Tower, as I hear thats the best. Nice temps btw

This is after 20 seconds of stress testing... Freaking garbage.

It's stable, just hot.

Oh, so more proof that my heatsink is concave. Last time I took it off to reseat it, there were etch marks on the base of the heatsink from where the four sides of the CPU are. It contacts the edges but doesnt contact at all in the middle.

Kyle, dont be afraid to crank up the vcore I had my e6600 up to 1.4875 with that same Zalman you bought off me. Idled ~40c, but Im guessing your ambient is far higher

@ Steve, do you have any other CPUs that you can test with? DONT go and buy some other HSFs! Trust me! My friend's e6400's temps are really f*cked up and he flew through like 5 HSFs. It is not the HSF, believe you me. It could be the circuitry of the chip underneath the IHS of the CPU itself. (like the TIM under the IHS is not making proper contact with the core) Dont bother lapping it either - that voids the warranty. IMO You should use the warranty from Intel directly - I have read that many have had pleasant experiences with Intel's RMA process. Explain to them that your chip runs far too hot and they will set you straight.

Here were my temps with your same Zalman 9500:

For those that are interested, I pulled my mobo out today and installed the Intel stock cooler. I'm now running a few degrees cooler than the Zalman. Confirms my theory at least. GG Zalman

I can guarantee that youre not the only one with a hot Conroe. I have witnessed it first hand and read many many threads where people have this exact problem concerning temperature.

Trust me, go for a RMA.

Either that, or take off the IHS.
