Haven't even oc'ed, bad temps?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
When I was putting thermal paste on my cpu, my mom kept calling me, so I'm afraid I may have caused air bubbles to form inbetween my cpu and the heatsink. I'm currently running it at stock using a cooler master hyper 212+. I ran prime95 and these were the temps I got. Nothing ever goes over 60 but it will say that it hits 60 at some points.

Here is the picture:



So basically are these bad temps? Could the thermal grease be the issue? I believe I am using MX-2 Thermal Grease, but I believe it has air bubbles.

Thats normal temps... Only will have air bubbles if you spread it around with something other than the pressure of the HS

I put it down, and picked it up off of the cpu a few times :/

Edit: It also moved around a bit as I tried to put the "x" thing underneath and screw it onto the mounting that I had installed behind the motherboard.

I agree, id say those look ok to me. When it gets over 80c during the stress test then you should start worrying.

You can always reseat for peace of mind, it only takes a few minutes. Even though the temps are normal, you might see a few degrees cooler with a reseat.

Oh alright, I wouldn't want to see 80c though, I'd like to see about 70 to 75c (at the most, that's even scaring me a little) under a full load. Will I actually be able to OC much out of it if I only have about 10c to work with?

Taking it off and putting it back on is quite a no-no. Unless you replace the TIM every time it leaves contact. (my personal rule anyway)

However, spreading it manually is not as evil as it is made out to be. My self and many others find it to be the best way.

EDIT: The Sandy Bridge CPU's are very tolerant to heat. They don't start throttling until 90+ degrees celsius. So don't stress. They can take a lot of punishment.

Yeah id say you can overclock. Just go increase a little at a time and test after you increase.

Ok, well that's good to note. I thought having 60c under load with this kind of cooler was a bad thing, seeing people being able to 4.5ghz with my cooler and chip, I was just scared that's all.

Thanks for the help guys +rep all

What are your ambient temps right now in the room?
What TIM are you using?
And, what method?

I can't remember my stock temperatures with my TX3 at the time. But I think I was around the low 50's mark under full load.

At the end of the day, if you're still worried. Go for another re-seat.
