Yes - its an E8400 =)
Ok I'm almost positive this thing has a funky temerature monitor. I've got it working ok for now (at least its not at 120C like it was
) but it seems like it reads correctly for a while and then just stay at some temp (like 28C maybe) for a few hours... I really don't know what its celebrating but if it keeps it up I'll RMA it. As to feeling the hot air, I took off the HSF and reseated it (with new thermal paste of course) and I'm positive its not running that hot. Thanks for all the suggestions
