hi guys,

my processor is AMD phenom II X4 955 BE
- idle temps is 44 to 48 c
- system temps 30 - 33 c
- gpu - 40 to 45 c
- 2 140 mm fans intake
- 1 exhaust

----
loaded temps gaming 53 to 61 c
-
===
before on my athlon x 4 635
idle is 24 - 28 c ( browsing) and loaded is 30 - 35 c
(gaming)
------
I have already opened the side casing and put a fan directly unto the CPU and nothing changed ..

- cool and quiet is enabled , also tried disabling it and it becomes much higher
- checked thermal paste and reinstalled . still the same
===
Is this a case of a bad chip ? ... sorry im just a newbie , plus if given a chance to upgrade to 1055t for just 25$ will you get it? ... not much into overclocking just want to have a good processor that would last for 3-4 years , purpose would be gaming, surfing, reading files for reviewer etc .

Thanks.

And how is the Vcore on your new chip? In Low power state and at full power. Nothing obstructing good airflow through the case?
