I5-2500K problems - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I recently had a stock 2500k HSF combo that came "broken." The fan would spin, but only to about 800 rpm when hooked up at 12v and the bearings had a constant click coming out of them. Luckily I only used it to test the componets outside of the case for a few minutes.

Check your fan to make sure it's spinning like it should. Also try hooking it up to a 12v source and running it all full speed to see if your temps drop at all. Is your heatsink hot to the touch after it shuts down?

From the information at hand its definately a heatsink/ thermal paste problem. More paste is never better. A centralized blob, or small X in the middle as i did and push the heatsink firmly. Try not to lift AT ALL. And make sure the brace is securely fastended to the heatsink so its tight flat and flush with your cpu.

Ok new problem, fixed the issue with the cooler, underload max temp reached was 54 degrees celcius.anyway I setup my steam account last night and was downloading Red Faction/ Watching Hall Pass...I feel asleep and when I woke the computer appeared to be in sleep mode but I couldn't get it out of it...so I forced shutdown and now the comp powers on but does nothing...what do you guys think happened?

It happened to me all the time with my sabertooth p67.
I think it had to do with the LLC, not quite sure how I manage to get rid of this.
Update your motherboard bios the the most recent : 1305.
It should fix it.
