Uneven temps

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
So I just got my new rig together yesterday and something i've noticed is my core temps are 10 degrees, core 1 being the coldest and core 4 being hotter. Under load and at idle. I'm useing a 2500k with a 212+. I've tried reseating the cooler 4 times, reapplied the TIM useing a rice sized dot in the centre, and tried making a line across the CPU. Still no difference. A friend of mine has a 2500k on a stock cooler and his temps don't variate more than 2-3 degrees. Should I just start RMAing stuff till it goes away or is this normal?

I have a similar variation. I've been told that its normal for Intel CPU's to vary like this. I came from AMD cpu that had even temps for all four cores, so I was worried. If you are unhappy with the temps, then you could potentially RMA it, although, if it is working fine, I don't see why you would. Are you planning on overclocking a lot?

Also for a 212+ a rice sized dot of TIM is probably not enough. Most of it probably went into the cracks between the heat sink plate and the heat pipes. You probably want to put a little more than that. The way I did mine was to put thin lines on each of the silver parts between the heat pipes.

What are your temps btw?

25-27 at idle for cores 1 and 2, 33-35 at idle for cores 3 and 4. And yes I'm going to try re applying the TIM again after work, I just saw an example of placing lines of TIM in-between the heat pipes like you said

Yes I do plan on overclocking it to at least 4.5, which I think is pretty close to the limits for this cooler anyways

With the Hyper 212, You need MORE that a rice sized bit of Paste. You should apply a good amount to the bottom of the cooler and use something to spread it into the sides of the heat pipes. Get it into those sides good and then use your rice sized bit on the cpu

Same story for my processor. My 2nd core always runs 6-10C hotter than the rest of the cores. I've redone the TIM and tried different ways of mounting it.

There is usually a 5 degree difference between my highest and lowest temps when I used the 212+. Ten degrees is a little high, but your temps look fine. What are you temps under load?

Core 1 is 38, Core 2 is 40, Core 3 is 44 and Core 4 is 46 at 100%

I should probably add this is on stock settings, no overclock at all.
post #8 of 18


It's normal. My core 1 sometimes gets 15c over 2-6. Doesn't matter how many times I remount my block.

I don't see why you would.

Thanks for all the input. When I'm off work ill try using more paste. If that doesn't work ill just live with it
