I seem to be getting some wildly different temperatures across the six cores of a 3930K when fully loaded at 4.6 GHz. I have used different TIMS and different cpu coolers, and still get the same kind of results. Here is a sample:
Core Temp results:
c0 = 81c
c1 = 79c
c2 = 72c
c3 = 74c
c4 = 78c
c5 = 82c
Notice that cores 2 and 3 are *much* cooler than the others; a delta of ~10c. My most recent re-TIMing / re-mounting was flawless. Subsequent inspection showed an even spread across the entire processor, with evidence of slightly less TIM centrally indicating tightest clamping there. The cooler was tightened down as tight as it would go. But still uneven temps.
Never encountered this kind of problem with my x58 build across multiple cpu cooler / TIM tests over the past three years. What I see when inspecting the TIM after dismounting would yield excellent results for my i7 920 system.
Any insights or suggestions? Anyone else experience this when overclocking an x79 build???
