Another CPU Temp problem

So this is the build c2d e6750. Asus p5k-e wifi ap mobo, nvidia 8800 gts 640 mb, and an antec sonata 3. i tried to read the guide about c2d temps got half way and then it got really over my head. at idle CoreTemp says core 0 = 67c and core 1 = 63c. At load with prime95 within 60 seconds it jumps to about 95 c on both cores. This just seems way to high. I built the computer about a year ago. I dont have any problems with it at all. Even when heavy gaming ie crysis, cod4 etc. I only got worried when i went into bios one day and my idle temp was 55c. Nothing is OC'ed and the cpu fan/heatsink are stock. I really want to know what is going on.

Thanks alot.

idle temps are way too high. At load, it is throttling the cpu. I would reseat the heatsink and put new thermal paste (clean the old one off first).

To me that sounds like a serious Voltage problem.

Find out the proper voltage for that e6750, and make sure bios has that set correctly. Reseating the HSF with fresh thermal paste, wouldnt hurt either, but check that voltage first. I assume it should be around 1.2v

Cheers

So i checkes voltage its at 1.35 atleast thats what coretemp said. im reseating hs and reapplying thermal paste(arctic silver 5). Any tips on the heatsink reseat. ive been trying to reseat it for about 30 min but those dang clips are so frustrating. i dont know if thee isnt sufficient room behind my mobo for the clips or what. o how i loath these clips.
thanks alot.

I simply remove the push pins and opt for 4 screws and 4 tiny little bolts that are 99C at home depot. ;)

When you checked voltage for the CPU, you mention maybe being at 1.35. Did you look at the VID? That may be 1.3500.

Use CPUz to check real time voltage to the cores, just to be sure.

Anyways, with a push pin cooler, its all in the push pins! As in, works fine without them, sucks with them, hehe!

coretemp reports VID which is different from the actual operating voltage in most cases. use cpu-z and see what that says. if your acutally running 1.35v you should be able to turn that down quite a bit i would think. i have a q6600 that i can run under my VID at 3ghz.

ok ok ok sooo.... after about an hour of fiddling i got to stupid push pins to work. the problem was with my case the motherboard sits very close to the sheet of metal that it was bolted to. just loosened acouple screws and wha la. even though i thought i was going to snap my motherboard in half trying to get the last pins in. its running at a chilly 26c im so happy!! at load with prime 95 it runs at about 46c. o man so happy i stumbled upon the temp in bios one day just messin around checking things out i hadnt checked in a while. btw my voltage is 1.18 =) not 1.35. thnx again.

Socket 775 push pins are a PITA, good job on getting it right.
I once had hi temps on my first &&% during it's build, I was using a celeron to flash it, and the temps went to something like 72c. That's when I found I had not set the push pins correctly. As you, my temps went way down after I fixed it.
