[Solved] Is this 2500k temp right? - Page 2

post #11 of 35
Looks like too much...

Put a healthy rice sized piece on the CPU and thats it. It'll spread. with all the pressure.

I tried a pea size last night when I was applying it and I may have put too much haha

You can evenly spread it over your CPU, I took some of the plastic from my fan packaging and use that, worked fine for me . You know, the stiffish plastic, just cut a small bit from that so I could use it as a spreader.

Spreading it with a plastic bag or w/e isn't efficient, creates air bubbles.

This, spreading would help because your using stock cooling an the pressure is not enough to spread the paste well. Also like I mentioned, try updating the BIOS, I was idling in the BIOS with 1305 around 45c and 33c or so in windows, once I upgraded the BIOS to 1704 my bios readings (37/38c) became very close to my actual windows reading (32/33c).

I'll give that a try. I turned it off when I saw that climbing every few seconds. This is my first build and I'm really worried something might go wrong lol

Did I say a plastic bag? No, I said a stiff peice of plastic, which with more viscous thermal pastes such as IC diamond which is what I use, regardless of the amount pressure you put on the heatsink it won't spread out effectively.

Also, the air bubbles are minimal if you take your time and get a nice flat layer.

Alright, I'm re-added some paste so let's try this again..

If the CPU gets too hot, will it tell me and shut the computer down?

EDIT: ok, the CPU in the BIOS says 54C and goes up slowly every once in awhile.
post #20 of 35
sounds better

And yes, it will shut down your machine before it does any damage.
