Hi! Just installed a new intel 5960x cpu replacing my 5930k cpu. My friend who knows computers did it, carefully removing the thermal paste off the old cpu and applying a short line of it (maybe 3/4" long) on the new CPU in between it and my cpu cooler (Zalman Liquid Cooler). My system was build 2 years ago by company that specializes in creating systems for Premiere Video editors, which I am. They overclocked the new 5960x cpu at 3.9Ghz at 1.250v, just as they had done with the 5930k one and then they recommended I run Aida64 overnight and then when I shared the numbers with them they said "they were okay as they were within spec". Just wanted to share the results here and ask what you all think. Is it strange that every other core seemed to consistently be hotter? Cores 1, 3, 5 and 7 were all close to 10 degrees hotter than 2, 4, 6 and 8. Is that normal? The test I ran for a little over 9 hours and kept the CPU, FPU, and Cache boxes checked. No crashes or anything and it's run well this weekend as I was back editing again. See the attachment for the exact numbers and let me know if their reply of "it's okay as the numbers are all within spec" is correct. I generally trust them as they've provided great support the last 2 years, but just wanna make sure.
