Temp Problems for 2500k

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hi

I've seen similar issues posted before, but none really answered my question, so here goes. Just put together my new 2500k machine with a P8P67 Pro board, and on first boot up in the BIOS I'm getting temperatures around 62+ C. Now I'm relatively new to this but that doesn't seem right. I'm nervous to even boot into a live CD to see if I get a different temperature reported.

On install I removed the stock cooler's thermal paste and put some Antec Formula 7 on. I know it isn't high end, but I figured it is better than stock, and it was free.

Help please.

Thanks
Heimdall

are you sure have installed the cooler correctly?, is they enough air flow?, are they cables in the way of the fan.

The only thing I even questioned when installing the cooler was if I turned the locks the correct way, but I checked the manual and I did (to lock turn away from the way the arrows point). I guess I may not have used enough thermal paste, but I put a decent dot in the middle and pressed straight down. The dot was maybe the length of a grain of rice and quite a bit thicker

And no, all cables are tied back, and the fan has plenty of airflow. The side is even off the case

My BIOS were reporting pretty high idle temps with my H60 (40-45C while the real deal is more like 30C) so it's normal I'd say considering you use stock. Try booting, it won't put a load of load on the CPU anyway so temps shouldn't rise.

The problem with that is I have no installed OS to boot to. I need to install windows on my drive, and doing that would require me to stop looking at the temps, and that concerns me. I have UBCD for Windows, but when I tried to boot I got a BSOD

Different BIOS reversions usually show different temps. I remember being on the 1505 BIOS and the temps in my BIOS were just over 50c, however in windows it showed that it was in fact at 30c. Once I updated the BIOS to 1850 on my P8P67 PRO, the temp reading in my BIOS was a little better, reading just below 40c, again windows temps were at 30c.

Hope the helps

EDIT:

When using the stock cooler make sure that it's firmly in place before continuing, refer to the manual if you have to.

I'm going to go ahead and pull the heatsink and cpu and reapply thermal paste, just to make sure. Could you give me a reference size for how much paste to put on? Everyone online says something different.

Just a little bit in the middle and then use something flat ( piece of cardboard maybe? ) to put it over the entire surface .

Dont start taking the CPU out of its socket! Once it's locked in place it stays there forever!!

Take the cooler off, clean the existing paste off very carefully from the CPU and the cooler underside.
You can use rubbing alcohol or specific TIM remover also cotton balls and cotton buds come in handy.

Once the underside of the cooler is shiny as a mirror place a pea sized blob of new paste in the center of the CPU.

Carefully align the cooler up and press in the fixings. I like to do one then the opposite corner repeat. That should ensure an even spread.

Reboot into bios and check the temps in the hardware monitor.

Hopefully this should work.
