CPU Fan Obstructed, Big Overheat

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey I just went from a Phenom II 1055T to a i5 2500K and after installing I noticed as I booted up that the CPU had an Overheat. I found out that because I didnt unwind the fan cable all the way, the fan got obstructed. My computer since has booted up, but most of the time at 91 celsius/ 206 farenheit. i booted up for the first time only about 25 mins ago, and I have been re booting up the computer every 2-3 mins, until now, where ive decided to let it sit. Is this going to be permanent to the i5 or do I just need to let it cool down? How should I let it cool? Any advice would be appreciated

91c? It shouldve cooled down a bit. Did you apply the TIM right?

Tim is obviosuly not on right, reapply

keep the system off for a tad. let it all reach room temps.
then basically start over, re apply the TIM the correct way and see how it all turns out.

The fan wire that wraps around the heatsink? It won't cause temps that high, maybe 5c more at most. Sounds like you need to reseat that cooler.

Uh oh... I'm used to the heatsinks having compound pre installed from the AMDs. I thought intel did too??? Because when i tried removing the heatsink the cpu did stick so it must have something on it

No, you need to reseat your heatsink, there is definitely something wrong. Your CPU shouldn't stay hot.
