Windows 7: CPU with high temps!

CPU with high temps!

I installed a Quad q6600 on my board and replaced the thermal paste,the issue is that my temps are going very high... 48/50 on idle and 65/70 on full ...
The thermal paste that i applied was white "silicon based"...
And before i applied the cooler had just the preapplied paste and gone nice back then!
I broke one pin (they are very easy to,if we dont have good care) but i fix him with glue,i dunno if this bad temps have something to do with it!

Hope to get some help here...

Thanks.

Ok one bent broken pin will do alot of damage
I doubt glue will be a good thing to use on parts like that most likly it will burn up and take everything with it you have a defective chip now so would look into replacing it

Never stick a cpu that has any broken pins into a slot and the contact from the pin that was broken is really broken there is no way to assure you glues it in place for it to be conductive

Best thing is to get a new chip unless you want it to get worse and it will

Also for your sake the pin doesn't stay stuck in the board after you fired it up probally melted the glue and the pin in your cpu slot which will force you to replace that too

I'd guess you didn't really fix him with glue and that you have a poorly mounted heatsink.

That's easy to do even if all 4 pins are good.

I wouldn't expect the thermal paste application to make a major difference as long as you used a decent paste.

I'd recheck all 4 corners of that heatsink mount and get a new pin, rather than try to glue a broken one.

Another thing to consider is which version of the Q6600 you have. There are two "stepping" versions (B3 or G0). The B3 is a 110 watt model and the G0 is 95 watts. The B3 will run a bit hotter. The box it came in should have the number on it.

I used to have one of the B3 models and as I recall, it ran in the mid-to-high 40's at idle (Dell pc with stock Dell heatsink/fan). My current CPU is the Q6700 and it's running right at 40 C as I type.

I dont think the CPU is defective as you say... He work great... and CPU's or work or just dont! Dont exist middle side effects... The problem is probably from the heatsink or poor quality of thermal paste... when i open the case the fan is not on fire,lol... i touch in there and is not even a bit hot...

I think he is a "GO" model,dude!
I have to say too,that he only reach to 75/80s on pcsx2 emulator...
Cause normally he is on 47/50 idle and on proper games for Windows he goes up to 55/60 maybe!
Right now he is on 46 idle... thats a stable temp but not the right temp for idle... a good idle would be 39/40șC maybe... cause i'm doing nothing more than writing this reply on the web!

Well that is your opinion and you are welcome to have it
I'm saying for me ,I would have never done that and not to mention you must have some steady hands and eyes like a hawk to get that pin exactly where it goes lol

My FX had some bent pins i tryed to carefully move back in place they ended up breaking so i went and got another and returned the other chip and still kept my money

long story short playing 50/50 like that will get you in the end

If they worked good with glue, the manufacturers would make them with glue. The broken pin is your trouble.

Is the broken pin a cooler pin? If yes buy a new cooler that fits the PC (~$30) and throw the old one out.

The thick white thermal paste I've seen looks very difficult to apply thinly. Buy a little tube of Artic Silver 5. Go to their website and they will tell you how to apply it for your CPU.

Use high purity (99%+) isopropyl alcholol and paper coffee filers to clean the old CPU surface. Spend some time and get it perfectly clean without stuff dribbling down the CPU sides. (Note: don't remove the CPU from its clamp when doing this).

Yes is a cooler pin,not a cpu pin... we can name that thing "pushpin" too i guess...
That thing is the worst kind of heatsink ever... they break very easy... and most times you think that shi# is well applied and dont! That pin is well fixed on motherboard but is broken... so,maybe the heatsink dont apply the necessary pressure to dissipate the heat...
