Exclamation PROBLEM! HUGE CPU temperature on extremly cooled, non-OC QX6700 on 680i

Hi, I wonder if my CPU temperature sensors on my Asus P5N32-E SLI are working properly... I cool my non-overclocked QX6700 with Scythe NINJA Revision B cooler. Before that, when I used the BOX cooler, the temperatures were even above 70*C in stress, not mentioning, that computer was working without right case wall! Now, in stress, temperatures are slightly not above 65*C with the NINJA. On idle, they are about 15*C lower with Ninja than in BOX cooler (55*C in idle with BOX cooler) In addition to that, my computer is still working without the right case wall, to 'lower' the temperature, and also with additional exterior 20cm desk fan. Im am using the newest Everest Ultimate to check the temperatures. I checked the temperatures in other programs, with no difference in measurements. I didin't update my motherboard BIOS. Should I update it to 1103? Would it solve my bad temperature measurements (I suppose thats the problem, not the cooling way) and would I be able to overclock my QX6700 from 2,66 to 3,2 without any temperature problems then?
Thanks in advance!
RC

Thats how it works:

Thats running very hot hhave you used thremal grease like AS5 or just used the stuff that came with the HS? If you have used AS5 then you may have put too much on the CPU. It is woth reading the guide on the AS site.

Use CoreTemp or Everest to read the temperatures...

My Q6600 runs at around 50 idle, 65 load. But the bios shows it at 15-25 degrees! I almost cooked it by having the cpu fan set to bios controlled.

I really don't know :P I had the NINJA cooler mounted in computer service, so I have no idea what type and how much thremal grease was used :P
But, my question is, could it be just caused by wrongly measured temperatures by the sensors?

Yea it could be reading wrong as Jon said I would use Coretemp to check it.

I checked it with CoreTemp. Each of the cores have temperature above 70*C (in stress). Is that normal?

My Asus reads high in comparison to the Asrock DualVSTA I had. I am even using a better cooler now (Tuniq) versus the stock cooler then. This is with the same apps as well. It baffles me. I can only assume that Asus boards may be out of whack when it comes to temperature readings.

Have you touched the heatsink? If its scalding hot and you can't lay your finger on it for even a second, then its most likely telling the temp right.

I know Capt. I still can't figure out why the differences. I originally thought I botched my AS5 application, so I redid it. It may have changed by a degree if any. My overclock is a bit higher and all, but when clocked the same I still am showing around 10 degrees higher on average with coretemp, speedfan, etc.

I had a Q6600 for a day or two a few weeks ago. It maxed out at 65deg with the standard cooler and about 58deg with the Noctua cooler at stock speeds.

I had a go at overclocking it but could only get it to boot at 3.0Ghz and the temps sored to well over 70 deg under load. I was not at all happy about this, so I sold it the next day.

I'm affraid the only way you're gonna be able to 'safely' overclock this CPU is with water cooling. Intel set the temp limit at 65deg for the QX6700.

Personally I wouldn't run one of these CPU's with air cooling even at stock speeds. They're just too damn hot. They're not gonna be a worthwhile upgrade until they drop to the track size to 45nm and they run cooler IMO.

BTW: I use PC Probe that came with the mobo for these readings. It's bang on accurate!

ok, so what we are saying is temps are summat like this:?

Stock cooler
Idle 55
Stress 70+

Ninja
Idle 40
Stress <65

Idle temps are much better than mine (Q6600 @3ghz)... but strange it jumps so high under stress... My room temp is kept at 27 max during summer though.

Only thing I can think of is, what temp is your room? Also, how are you stressing it?

I measured my 65 degrees stress playing R6 Vegas... cause thats mostly what I do (play games)... but I bet if I run Orthos for a couple of hours I can get it to 70+. That kind of temp would worry me... but as it never reaches that under "normal" use, I sleep well at nights.

Yes, thats what I am talking about:P

I touched the heatsink, it is warm but I cannot burn my finger on it :P It really doesn't feel like 60*c or even lower :P So thats why I thing sth is wrong with the temp. sensors

Temp. in my room is varies around 23*C. I use orthos to stress my CPU, temperature is around 65*C then.

At present, it is 17*C outside, whereas temp. in my room now is around 19*C (due to opened window) and the CPU idle temp. is 37*C and in stress around 57*C :P
I still want to OC the CPU to from 2,66 to 3,2 but I am not sure if it won't harm my computer due to high stress temperature I have when it is rather warm inside...
