High temps with i5?

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
I just upgraded to an i5 2500k. Little concerned about the temps though when idling. 45 c at start up and about 55c after about 15 mins. I turned on Turbo mode for CPU fan profile, and seems to be the only option to allow the Fan to run faster if needed.
Ideas as to WHY its running so warm? I applied the thermal compound just right and have the heatsink on nice and even.

Those temps are rather high just for being idle no OC. Is the fan plugged in? It's honestly the only thing I can think of if you have the TIM on correctly.

I don't want to doubt you're TIM applying skills but I would suggest resetting the cooler and see if temps drop. If temps stay the same put on the stock cooler and see if that helps or hurts, because faulty coolers aren't that uncommon.

well just looked at a review of the op's cooler and when a qx9770 was overclocked to 3.6ghz with 1.4v.. delta temperature was 35... the 2500k should be cooler, but at least it will give you an idea
