2500K with stock cooler on P8P67 Pro - High temps

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I haven't been around for a while. I'm back now because I'm in the process of doing some upgrades!

(If you want to skip ahead, just read the last paragraph!)

I installed a 2500K (with the cooler it came with) on my P8P67 Pro and booted it up for the first time yesterday. I went straight into the BIOS and was alarmed to find that it was reporting the CPU temp as 55° C and rising.

So I left it rising to see where it would stabilize. It eventually reached 70° C and I just shut it down because I knew something was wrong.

I re-seated the HS and made sure everything was tight and good. Now I'm getting a temperature of 52° C on idle (idling at the NTLDR missing msg), and 60° when idling in the BIOS (apparently the UEFI BIOS puts a load on the CPU?). Is this normal? Should I get a better HS?

YES, upgrade your heatsink at once, those stock ones are rubbish!

Yes, it's normal for the UEFI temps to be higher. UEFI does put a lot more stress on the CPU. There are also no reduced power states in bios so its running at full speed.

Just go straight to Xspc rasa kit you be very happy, don't mess with any other coolers. Its the best bang for the buck for cooling.

Also dont rely on your mobo for temp info because it averages the cores into a single number. This will give you misleading numbers. My bios told me i am idling at 60c then with realtemp and speedfan i am idle at 39c(which is correct.)

This. Try using RealTemp in a load environment. Idle temps are useless as they don't show what temps the CPU will experience when actually being used and the UEFI isn't an idle environment.

Water cooling is never the best bang-for-the-buck.

39C seems awfully high for water cooling

Definitely upgrade cooler man, I'm stuck with the same set up while i wait for my Corsair H50 to come in (a week now damn Amazon >). AT STOCK SETTINGS it actually thermally throttles when encoding video and playing GTA IV, and this is with a decent HAF case!
