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.
I have no idea about ambient temps in my basement, but upstairs the temperature on the thermastat upstairs it says 76 degrees. My parents set it, I don't. But, the basement is a hell of a lot cooler than upstairs, I couldn't imagine myself trying to be on my computer up there.

Nobody ever told me what TIM was so I'm just going to assume that it's thermal grease, and I'm using MX-2.

The method I planned on using was the pea sized dot method where you just turn on your computer and let the thermal grease spread itself out, but when I was trying to mount the cooler, the cooler did move around a little bit, spreading the thermal grease.

I just updated the bios and my idle temp went up but when running prime95 my temps went down, never going above 50c O.o

Well, I hear MX-2 is supposed to have a couple hours of cure time, so maybe it was just cured when you finished installing bios.

with the CM hyper 212 the fans dont get to max when at stock its once you start overclocking they will rise up and you notice the temp difference also maybe another reseat might help more

Sounds good, is that at stock? you should be able to get around 4.5ghz and stay within a healthy margin of 70/80c. Good luck and let us know if you need any help getting there.

On that note, come visit the Sandy stable club (link in my sig) it has overclocking, voltage, cooling and temperature reference which you can use to compare with.

Hope that helps bud

Alright thanks, I'll look at that page, I'll try to overclock it tonight then I guess and run prime95 all night to see if it's stable. What's the worse that could possibly happen while I'm asleep though? I don't want to start a fire O.o

if you have the fan plugged into the fan header on the mobo the fan will speed up ( you will hear it) and the temps change so much at stock my i5 650 was getting 45-47c load overclocked to 4ghz around 55c load now at 4.3ghz i get a max of 62c which goes down to around 58c then jumps up n down from there

lol worse that could happen is that bsod during prime and it restarts that's it or your temps get so high that throttling will cause it to shutdown, apart from that you should be fine. Don't worry about it

Alright I'm looking up the basics right now cause I'm new at this, I got my ram at the right settings finally which was easy cause it was a drop down menu, I gotta figure out the efi bios overclocking, but I'll just look that up.

Thanks for all the help guys, let me +rep you all
