Intel core-i5 2500k+ overheating, no overclocking

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I just bought this:

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=500648&csid=_22

and my cpu seems to be overheating when using 100% load. I'm not overclocking at all, and it goes up to like 95C. My processor downclocks itself at that point to prevent damage. I installed it all correctly, no dust it's only 3 days old. What could be the problem? Everything else seems to be at a normal temperature.

Check to make sure all four clip that hold the cooler to the mobo are pushed completely in and are locked.

Since that kit did not come with an aftermarket heatsink, i am assuming you are using the stock intel cooler and since you are not overclocking, you probably have installed it wrong. Since the stock heatsink has preapplied TIM, try to to first re seat the heatsink. Second, did you connect the fan connector to the CPU_FAN header on the motherboard. Can to go into detail somewhat on how you installed the cpu cooler or post pics.

I plugged in the heatsink to the motherboard. Maybe it's not tight enough I don't know. It is the stock heatsink, and the stock thermal paste. Right now my cpu won't let itself go past 50% and it's at around 80C when I'm that that load. When I'm just idle it's like 40-50C.

inb4didn'tapplyTIMcorrectly.

My first question is, have you ever installed a processor before?

Failed heatsink mounting job. Remove cleane off paste with 9% or higher alchol on both cpu amd heatsink. Apply a pea sized dot on tue center of the cpo (without spreading) and make sure the heatsink is tight on all four sides.rolleyes.gif

No this is the first time I've installed a cpu, or built a computer at all.

Those plastic pins that come on the stock cooler are a pain to get set correct. Make sure that each one is fully inserted through the back of the motherboard. You should see the little corners of the plastic pins sticking through the holes in the motherboard.

EDIT: Found this.

Did you firmly push all 4 corner pins down? How is your case air flow? Cable management?

And room temperature?
