What are normal temps for i5 2500 with stock cooler?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have finished assembly of a new mATX core i5 2500 system on a Asus P8H67mATX board. Using the stock cooler. Temps read as mid toupper 40s C in EFI while core temp shows mid to upper 50s. No OCing has been done and will not be done as it is an office build. Also these temps are with essentially no stress on the system. At most the system will be doing EMR, office and scanning records for the EMR. Are these temps normal with the stock cooler?

What are the load temps (as idle temps matter very little)? I would say that the processor will remain around idle temps for most of its life, but as long as your load temps aren't above mid 70's, low 80's its fine.

Friends i7 2600K that we built a couple of weeks ago idle temps were around 40oC with stock Intel Cooler. So I would say they look ok. Mine i7 2600 non K is around 30oC idle but its under clocked.
