2500k - 80c Idle / 50c Heavy Workload !? Please Help !

post #1 of 3

Hey Guys,
here are my computer specs..

Intel® Core™ i5-2500K 3.30 GHz 6M Intel Smart Cache LGA1155
CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo Gaming Cooling Fan (Heatsink)
8GB (2GBx4) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory Module (Corsair XMS Gaming Memory with Heat Spreader)
Asus P8Z68-V LX Intel Z68 Chipset
650 Watts - Corsair CMPSU-650TXV2 80 Plus Power Supply - Quad SLI Ready
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560
Creative Labs SB Audigy SE

Nothing is overclocked.

Now the problem i have is when i open up SpeedFan.
It's saying my CPU idles at a 80ish Celsius temp.. But when i play BF2 it runs at a decent 50c..

Also when i'm just on the internet and listen to music - sometimes my computer will lock up..
for example

When you're listening to a CD and it starts to skip, so it repeats a second of the song you were listening to and loops it repeatedly and the computer freezes, then goes back to normal five seconds later.

Anyone know what the problem could be?

Thanks !

Steven

I would suggest you ditch SpeedFan and get RealTemp or CoreTemp as temperature monitoring programs. SpeedFan is outdated and just isn't exactly the best program to use.

50C in Bad Company 2 sounds just about right. The temps should be lower while idle, SpeedFan is probably just picking up some arbitrary number.
