i5 2500K High Temps? Return? - Page 2

post #11 of 35
Thread Starter 
Will do

I was looking at this thread and it seems somewhat similar. The guy ended up exchanging the CPU which fixed everything.

His new idle temps on the new CPU "33-35 deg C at idle and around 52-56 deg C under load"

Going to play with it more tomorrow and if nothing changes, I hope MicroCenter won't give me any issues for an exchange

Well I just reseated the CPU and applied a small amount of AS5 this time. Didn't change much. I think I will just go to Microcenter and get an exchange

Remember as5 has a cure time of around 200hours, also as other's have said, the stock heatsink is not that great. I would recommend getting an after market cooler. A really good budget air cooler is the 212+. Also ambient temps make a big difference when comaparing with other's.

those temps are high but not insane high you are running prime 95 under gaming and such i doubt it would go past 70C but return it if you feel the need

The temps aren't extremely high, just somewhat high. The 2500k can handle those temps perfectly fine. I'm running at 4.20Ghz on stock heatsink/paste idling @ 40-42C and max load 71-72C.

Getting another CPU isn't going to help either. It may have a slightly lower stock VID and maybe be a little lower, but most likely it is just the stock HS plus semi-high ambient temps.

Try.. http://www.mediafire.com/?n99nq4kn95u6i6a

Because versions of Realtemp/Coretemp don't report Sandy Bridge temperatures properly.

I recommend realtemp or coretemp, they are usually much more accurate than others. You can get the latest Realtemp from HERE
