First REAL build, CPU temp problems!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
First off, here is my build:

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...m%20PHAN-002OR

CPU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115072

CPU Cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835181015

GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161373

MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157229

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231416

PSU: Corsair 650w


I was used to getting buy with my prebuilt HP and 6950 till now. Just built my first rig last night, what an experience that was. Extremely satisfied and proud.

Ran into a bit of a problem today however. I ran Heaven benchmark to see what how it would compare to my old crappy build and I was extremely satisfied till I saw my CPU temps! They were up to 90 degrees Celsius per core after the test had finished! My idle temps are in the high 30s and low 40s. During about an hour or two of trying out several different games the temps were in the 60s.

I haven't even bothered OC'ing just yet. Is there something I did wrong? Installed my H60 heatsink incorrectly? Or perhaps the thermal paste? Any tips and or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I would detach the heatsync. Remove and re-apply thermal paste. And then make sure you install it correctly.
