Did i mount my heatink a bit wrong?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
ok i just got done setting up my new rig the CPU is a 2600k I7. I have a Frio heatsink with both 120mm's

My idle temps are bout 30-32. But when i start up prime 95 they go as high as 73c.

Does anyone think this is a bit too high for this heatsink?

Ambient temperature? TIM? Overclock?

What are your ambient temperatures? Depending on your ambient temperatures it may be running hot or your room might be hot.

It's thermal paste/goop. Came with your cooler. Did you put it on?

Thermal Interface Material..i think that's a little too high for stock with that cooler..hope you have a tube of TIM..take it off clean the base and the cpu..put a pea-drop in the middle..and..here comes the hard part:squish it down and secure it without letting up on the pressure..looks like you have a bad mount..it happens.That's a fairly decent cooler..at stock..probably shouldn't go much over 60-ish..if that
