2500k Advice/Help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So just built my sig rig after waiting almost 3 weeks for parts to come and go...on to my issue

after starting the computer for the first time my temps on this cpu hovered around 38c on idle, after running a blend test for 10 minutes temps got to a max of 57c...after switching some fans around to different headers and speeding up the fans i was able to get it to hover between 33-36c on idle and in a blend test it would shoot to a max of 59c after 30min test...now ive rotated the cooler,wiped off the stock TIM on the H60 and applied some AS5 (was the only thing i could get quickly), change the P/P system from exhaust to intake and back to exhaust and checking temps after each alteration like a good little troubleshooter...temps never went lower than 33c on idle and so after doing all that im now hovering at 35c on idle...btw all above temps mentioned are on STOCK clocks no OC yet too scared of the high temps on stock

now i know from reading on these forums and other places on the net and talking with some people that this 2500k should idle between 26-32c on a comparable heatsink/cooler and same chip with a moderate OC can get as high as 57-59c in a blend test...maybe even lower for both idle and load

so what the hell is wrong with my cpu?

did i just get a dud high temp cpu? is my H60 a dud? a combo of both maybe? am i just destined to have high temps and in turn limiting my OC chances to have a high OC with good temps

so please i really need some help here...this has me totally nuts right now...my only focus is to get low temps like ive seen countless times here on OCN and else where...if anyone needs anymore info or pictures or a beer to get my issue fix i will gladly provide...even if you cant fix it and you have some suggestions im more than willing to entertain them

Just install the factory heatsink, if your temps go lower or are the same as what that corsair unit is giving you, I'd say you have a defective water cooler.

um what the?

did i miss something?


so an update...i swapped out my H60 for the stock Intel heatsink....temps are running between 37-40 sometimes dipping as low as 36c

now 38c is my original temp after just putting together the computer and starting it for the first time

so does that tell me the h60 is garbage or is that telling me the cpu just runs hot?

god im so frustrated
