i5-2500k OC to 4.3 Temp results

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Ok after my first day of over clocking. I decided to try for 4.3ghz. When I originally applied the thermal compound I felt like I used a little to much, I had some excess come out the sides. So Im wondering if I should reapply or wait until curring time is over. . My temps after an hour of prime95 are 60, 61, 63, 62. I just have the feeling I put to much thermal paste on and that I could get better temps, what do you guys think?

i5-2500k, with coolermaster 212+ with arctic silver 5, on p8p67 evo. vcore set to 1.23v at 4.3ghz

Perhaps it may be a little bit too much if its come out the side.

Its ideally as thin as you can get it,its only purpose is to fill in tiny imperfections in the surfaces of cpu and heatsink.

Apply it again a bit thinner this time and see what temps are like,trying it out a few times is the only way to learn i suppose.

They're a tad high.. When I had my 212+ at 4.4GHz I got 54-58C temps on full load. But I guess maybe a difference in ambient could cause the different temps.

I'd just go clean it out and use less. AS5 is capacative and you do *NOT* want that stuff getting into the cpu socket!! People have damaged their Video RAM by using AS5 on ramsinks and having the AS5 get on the pins and bridge gaps...

And you are going to have a hell of a time getting AS5 out of a 1155 pin socket...it was hard enough getting it out of a S775 socket...
Frankly, I'd use something like MX-4 or "Older formula" MX-3 anyway, as it's a lot safer than AS5.

yeah it was kinda freaky lol. It wasn't much, the rest of it I cleaned with a Q tip but yeah I think Ill re-apply and see what happens. Also should I invest in that arctic cleaning kit or just use 91% isopropyl alcohol?

Keep in mind that two people using the same processor and same HSF will not get identical or sometimes even comparable temps. My lower VID better clocking 2600k runs like 5C hotter at the exact same settings as my higher vid bad clocking 2600k, yet requires less vcore (well they reach the same speeds (5.4 ghz wall, 4.9 with pll overvoltage disabled), but the lower VID one runs hotter and requires less vcore.

I'm going to go ahead and try to reapply. I'm kinda scared though. I don't want to damage anything taking the compound off. But I just have a funny feeling that there is a little to much on there. Less is more right? Going to try the pea method and see what kind of temps I get.
