2500k reporting wrong temps

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,
I am having some trouble with my new build, and want to get it worked out by BF3 time on Tuesday.

I seem to be having problems with different programs reporting very different core temps. I upgraded my motherboard to the newest BIOS, re-seated the CPU a few times, and I am still getting weird temp readings. The picture only shows mostly idle temps, but I was doing some stress testing before and Speedfan and CPUID ( under the temps under my ASROCK motherboard) would report about 55-60C but core temp and realtemp would report 95-103C. I am sure I have the CPU seated correctly, and when it is stress testing, I felt the heatsink and it doesn't feel like it is 95C, more like 50-60C, and I know thats not where scientific, but I am sure the heatsink would be pretty warm to the touch at almost 100C. Any insight would be appreciated. I just updated my profile to reflect the new system, finally retired my old 4.2GHZ core2duo. devil.gif

*edit* haha forgot to add the picture

What does this program tell you? It is way better than the other softwares I used before. But realtemp should be spot on.

Are you overclocking? Did you clean the old tim off and reapply new to the clean surface? What cooler are you using?

Reaktemp is one of the programs reporting insane temps, 95+C. CPUID and Speedfan are the only ones that seem to report more realistic numbers.

I did clean off the heatsink and CPU with 90% isoprophyl and applied a nice thin coat of AS5. I am getting a coolermaster v6 from newegg, should be here on Tuesday. I will try that program and report back.

The above program is showing 38-40C on the cores at idle, and speedfan and CPUID report consistently 31C. I will check full load and see what it comes up with.

I am getting temps up in the 95-98C on stock clocks, and I actually just noticed it is downclocking my CPU to 2.4. I checked the heatsink over and over again and it is on there pretty tight, I know it is the stock cooler, but my CPU shouldn't be underclocking itself.

Is the fan running properly?

I had issues with the stock cooler not being seated properly. Are all the little pins being popped through the mobo all the way?

Yeah I check it over and over, even turned the little pins until they clicked, is it possible that I could of gotten a bad chip that would run so insanely hot at stock?

EDIT
fan is running fine, about 2000rpm.

I just got it last week, so I thought I'll see if the new cooler would help, I just read everywhere how well these ran on stock with the stock cooler, it just scared me to see those kind of temps.
