So I'm stumped on this temp thing with the i5-2500K...

As far as I can tell every thing is running the way its supposed to, the Vcore in the BIOS is reading that it is defaulting to around 1.040 - 1.090; it fluctuates...

Is it possible, that I might have applied TOO MUCH, Thermal paste? Could that actually cause the chip to run excessively hot? I applied 4 dots on each cornero of the chip, as was recommended from the Corsair forums, and the Water Cooling forum here on OCN, but I also took a razor blade and smoothed it out across the CPU so it was a nice flat layer. Whatever was left on the razor blade, I smoothed over onto the H50...

Thought it was a perfect spread... but if it was too much, could that cause the chip to run at 92c?

cjc75, People will tell you this and tell you that when it comes to applying thermal paste. I find it best to apply it however you feel is right and if for some reason the temp's are not what you expected just redo it using a different method and test again.

Chances are you may have applied to much. Over applying can cause it to act as in insulator and cause temp's to go up. What i do is use one very thin coat of mx-2 or mx-3 to either the chip or the cooler not both.

Ok i just tried this board with stock cooler and it still fails, any ideas, starting to think DIMM 1 and DIMM 2 slots are dead, here are my current findings

 

Slot 1 only, Fail

Slot 2 only, Fail

Slot 3 only, boots,

Slot 4 only, boots,

 

Slot 1 & 3, Fail

Slot 2 & 4, Fail 

Slot 1 & 4, Fail 

Slot 3 & 4 boot

 

My bios is 1.10, is this the latest? any idea before I take this back (or throw it out the window!) 

 

I'm using Corsair Vengeance 2x4 1866 dimms, they work no problem I tested on my Asus 990fx, its not the ram, when the system boots my cpu vcore is only 1.1< is this typical for i2500k, I'm used to AM3 cpus running 1.32+ vcores.... help please

Turns out it wasn't the TIM...

After redoing the TIM at least several times...

I have found the problem!

The H50's PUMP, was not properly plugged into the PWR_FAN header! It was only plugged into, 2 pins, on the motherboard and so was not properly fitting onto the 3 pin header.

BIOS now shows the CPU holding at a nice 33c!

So problem resolved!

BIOS is a little confusing, and though this is my first time working with a UEFI BIOS, it seems much of it is pretty straight forward...

I think I got it configured the way I want, I just changed settings on things that I know, and left everything else to default.

Little confused over the OC Tweaker page though, as I do not see anything for the CPU Multiplier? There is a CPU Ratio Setting, but not quite sure how that works?

So I ran into another interesting problem...

During the initial stages of the Windows Installation, the Setup did its normal reboot process and when the system came back up, it went straight to the UEFI and said something about missing a Flash, and gave me two options; 1 - Configure or 2 - Refresh Device.

Hitting the refresh did nothing...

So I hit Configure, which took me back into the BIOS.

Only this time it went all screwy, as though someone were holding down one of the arrow keys on the keyboard, and kept zipping through all the various screens on the BIOS. The Mouse was working fine so I tried to go in and force it to save/exit/etc... but it kept jumping off that screen.

Finally, I just hit the Reset button on the computer, and unplugged the Keyboard.

It rebooted right back into the Windows Setup and continued on is merry way!

Once the installation of Windows is finished, then I'll go back into the BIOS and see if it is still doing it; if so then I'll try plugging the Keyboard into the PS/2 with an adapter, instead of the USB.

By the way, with the above "fluke" in mind...

Where can I find out what version this BIOS is, and whether or not there is an Update available to Flash onto my board?

Got Windows all installed properly..

But now I've run into another problem. I am installing all the Drivers for the ASRock Z68. It did a normal reboot process and then came back up and is asking me to make a choice...

Select Source:
1. Generate the RAID?AHCI driver diskette for Intel Z68 Chipset
2. Generate the AHCI driver diskette for Marvell SATA 3.0
3. Exit



Well this is all fine, and I know which to select...

Only I can't do anything!

It is popping this screen up before its even initialized the keyboard, and I can't select anything.

I've tried with the keyboard plugged into the PS2 and still nothing...

I don't have any other keyboards that I can try at the moment, other then the one I am using now on my other computer, but it is a wireless KB/Mouse combo set and I can't shut this computer down at the moment... but maybe I can try it later...

But., has anyone else run into this problem while installing their ASRock drivers; or any suggestions?

Ok never mind the above...

I have to hammer the key on the keyboard a few times before it was register my selection.

However, NOW... no matter whether I select 1 or 2, it flashes a message that says "no support found" and then reboots and comes back to the same list of choices. If I try 3, then again it just reboots and comes back to the same thing....

I think I figured out that its trying to set up some floppy disk, but I don't a floppy and haven't used one for years, and have the floppy controller disabled in the bios.

I got around this by rebooting and taking the ASrock Driver disk out, now I'm back into Windows.

I'm not even sure what it was trying to install off the Driver disk in the first place, that got it to that point though...
