i5 2500k is it really much hotter than Thubans? - Page 2

post #11 of 27
Soda you sound just like me lol...

My i7 2600k With a H60 was running around 49~50 at Bios (checking temp)

I went out and bought Arctic silver 5 yesterday and just applied it. I havnt tested it yet, but i will soon.

Its like deja vu

They are completely different chips. What's "hot" for one is "cool" for the other. 50C for an Intel chip is quite good. Why you are just comparing the temperatures of the two is laughable. The fact that this alone was making you regret buying such a better chip makes me seriously facepalm.

The 2500K is 95w, 32nm, and doesn't require a lot of voltage to overclock. It runs pretty cool -- much cooler than that 125w Thuban. My 2500K is clocked at 4.4GHz, on a cheap ass $30 hsf, and idles at 32c (no intel power saving / EIST enabled). If you're getting some 50c idle reading in BIOS, then either: A) It's just a buggy, incorrect BIOS reading, and the board's next BIOS update might fix it, B) PEBKAC, from a poor install of the Corsair H50. Such as no thermal paste was applied, or too much was. Or perhaps the mounting screws weren't tightened enough, or C) Poor and inadequate case airflow/ventilation. You need to stick to CoreTemp or Realtemp in the Windows environment to get an accurate reading of its idle temps. Not go by what BIOS reads. 50c is what the 2500K normally does under load, not idle.

Same thing that happened to me.

My amd is running 38-39C at windows with like ~5%load. IT kinda made me doubt buying the i7 also lol

Idle temps are meaningless on Intels as you have no idea of knowing how far off from true they are, or in which direction.

I was not comparing temps I was asking because there is a temperature increase withing the 2 chips and don't khow how the i5 runs since i've never owned one.

Also I wasn't regretting buying an i5 2500k just because it's running hotter, the other factor to that is that the open box motherboard I got did not work now I'm trying to see if ASUS fixes it or I'll just have to RMA to newegg. I got it for $86 which was withing my budget actually I went up my budget with the mobo and the cpu since I was barely saving up for BullDozer. If I end up having to RMA mobo to newegg I'll just have to wait until I can buy the same or similar motherboard for a much higher price than $86. Right now I'm using the other one I ordered for my brother.

Anyways I just installed windows and i'm running cpu-z and speed fan.

cpu is at 1.6 "idle" and speed fan reads cpu temp at -60C and system temp at 27C.

I'll warn you right away: ASUS has no obligation to replace your open box board. You might get it fixed, but there are no guarantees. Be aware of that and return the board to Newegg if ASUS don't take it.

Also, why are you reading CPU temp? Read core temps.

I'm installing core temp, was looking for my flash drive.

I know that's why I'm kind of rushing ASUS RMA and see what they do and if they don't fix it, I'll RMA to newegg and save up for another motherboard.

Just finished installing core temp and this are the readings at idle:

tj. max 98C
core 0: 24
core 1: 24
core 2: 24
core 3: 24

Max in all fore cores 33C

So I guess I was freaking out for no reason ? I'm not that great at this

A 2500k almost certainly runs cooler than a Thuban, except at very high OCs, even if the temps you are seeing in software report the exact opposite.
This.

I was surprised that no one else in this thread before you referred to the fact that the temperatures between AMD and Intel are not measured at the same point.

You probably made a bad move by applying AS5. The stock paste on Corsair H series coolers is Shin Etsu which is very high quality and is not electrically conductive.
