Have had random restarts for the last few weeks, and decided to investigate as the problem persisted. With speedfan i've seen temps in a core almost double the lowest. I've never heard of such a vast difference. Anyone have any suggestions

-> Already reapplied thermal compound twice

EDIT: Moved from Vista forum to more appropriate Internal Hardware ~ Hamluis.

what CPU, motherboard, heatsink, and case are you using, and what kind of fans and how many. Also, may be helpful to know make and model number of PSU and video card(s)

if this is a prebuilt, what brand and model number.

How much thermal paste did you use?

custom and random either way if that were the case it would cause an overall rise in temp not in particular cores yes?

it could yes. improper cooling can cause an overheat. so can a overworked PSU. Im not asking these questions to be nosy but to help you. Custom and random don't help me help you help me help you:

I need:
Power supply brand, and model number.

Case setup, if you can't find a brand. is it mid atx, micro? and how many case fans of what size, located where.

this is important, heatsink. Stock, or aftermarket, if aftermarket, brand and type.

Video card. Brand and model number.

Was having a similiar issue, I added an intake fan and it helped out alot, also could be there is too much thermal compound. Try mounting a fan to blow across the heatsink aswell, may help. If all else fails, water kits are cheapish now.
