Hyper 212+ temps 10C increase on idle

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
my CPU temp has increased about 8-10C on idle.

at first, my thoughts on why it increased was because of the dust .
took an air compressor and blew out all the dust in my system. blew around my heatsink and inside. and everywhere in my computer case. entire system is dust clean .

my room gets hot during the day, and the side fan was faced towards a wall, so air flow wasnt great entering in from the side panel, so i moved it , where it can get better air . at night when its not so hot, with my tower fan blowing to it, with the side panel open completely, still idles at 40. when i start up BC2 , i'm already at 51-53C . i've tested the fans attached to my 212+ both doing what it's suppose to do , push/pull theory .


my temperatures wasnt this high before , and i havent changed any settings ever since i finalized my OC .

would taking off my heatsink, and re-applying and cleaning thermal paste on my cpu , and re-seeding it , help my temperatures?

Yes it can, I would definitely give it a shot. What kind of TIM are you using and how are you applying it? Have your ambient temps raised in your room since the summer hit?

yes my room temperature has raised. im never home until around 6:00 PM when it cools down a bit, and i turn on my tower fan to air out my room.

even at midnight, when all is cool . im still idling at 40C

i put a dime size drop on the middle of my CPU and dropped the heatsink on top of it.

i have added a little bit of MX-4 on each copper pipe and i also added shrouds to my setup.
The ambient temp in the room at the time was about 70F.

EDIT:
What tim do you use?
Are you sure you put the cooler on right?

A dime size is way too much. A drop the size of a BB or barely bigger would be ideal. You could also try spreading the TIM over the cpu if you can do it properly. If your ambient are up then your cpu temps will go up with it. I like to reapply my TIM every few months to keep it fresh.

Follow this guide for applying TIM.

Has your ambient temp raised proportionately to your cpu temps? e.g. you said the cpu temps are 8-10C highers....is the ambient temp 8-10C higher?

If so, you can reapply TIM and reseat your cpu cooler all you want, it probably won't change your temps.

i wouldn't recommend spreading the TIM on a Hyper 212+ because it is an hdt cooler and its better for the cooler to do it itself..
OP: When you reapply make sure you have the cooler nice and tight and try to push down on the cooler a little bit before you screw in the screws. It will naturally allow the tim to go into the crevices that are needed.
EDIT: Also try to get a thermal paste that is doesn't need any curing such as MX-4(what i use) or some Shin Etsu(also used before,good stuff )

yeah i think i will try to re-apply my TIM on my heatsink and see if it makes a difference, meanwhile, i can clean my CPU as well.

i dont know the temperature in my room, so i can't tell how much of a temperature increase my room has risen.

noob question, what is ambient temp ? my overall system temp ?
