2500k at 4.2 Some saying temps too high some saying normal. Confused now - Page 2

post #11 of 32
I just built a rig for someone with a 2500k and clocked it to 4.4ghz at 1.34v with a 212+, unfortunately I had to use the coolermaster thermal paste that came with it and his temps were around 75°C running IBT. I'd say your temps are a little high since your voltage is really low, but I know that cooler is a pain to install so I wouldn't worry about it unless you were wanting to try and overclock higher. What paste did you use?

Click on the Sandy Stable club and check the Speadsheet in the OP. Click on the 'Cooling' sheet and scroll down, you should find quite a few 212+ entries that you can make comparisons with smile.gif

Link is in my sig.

EDIT:

How did you apply the TIM?


Here's a couple of entries from the Sandy Stable club that are running a similar overclock to yours:

Comparing it against those, I would say that your temps are fine smile.gif

Thanks for the replies guys. For everyone asking, I used Arctic Silver 5. I originally applied it like they recommend placing a single line down the center of the CPU then lightly spread it out to cover the CPU. I then prepped the bottom of the heatsink by spreading AS5 on it then wiping it clean. I did not use any alcohol or cleaning substance and used the supplied piece of paper to do the cleaning.

Sounds like you may have used too much TIM. Also curing time for AS5 is around 200 hours lol

Here's the 'best' way to apply TIM on HDT coolers like the 212+

450

Apply like the above and let the pressure of the heatsink do all the work at spreading the paste.

I think the consensus is for that cooler OC and such your temps are spot on. I personally wouldnt be worried by anything that didnt approach 80c. Course my experience goes back to overclocking the P4-D and I got used to the idea of baking processors biggrin.gif

So if I'm looking at that correctly, is that just two small lines down the middle 2 lanes? None should be placed on the CPU or anywhere else?

Hello mate wave2.gif

6c difference across the cores! Wouldn't that suggest his cooler and TIM are fine thinking.gif

Hey bud, how you doing? Hope you are well!!


Indeed 6c difference indicates that seating is good, however when OP explained the TIM application method, it seemed to me, that too much TIM my have been applied. Temps could probably improve with a reseat with the correct TIM application method and obviously counting the curing time. thumb.gif

I'm doing OK bud thumb.gif

OP, I'd listen to our mate munaim1 over me. He does have much more experience with this than me yessir.gif
And if you do re-seat it. As you're tightening it all down, give the cooler a twist "left and right from above" to help it seat and squeeze the excess TIM out smile.gif

Great I will try.

Munaim, am I looking at this picture correctly in that there are 2 small strips on the heatsink and thats it? None placed on the CPU or anywhere else?
