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?

that's correct. thumb.gif

Temps are spot on and reseating is unlikely to do anything but you're welcome to try.

I have a xigmatek gaia which is almost identical to the 212+, but scores slightly better in thermal tests. My temps are as follows after 1 hour of prime95 blend:

70
76
75
72

This is using arctic silver 5 on an i5-2500k @ 4.5ghz with 1.29v. I even reseated, reapplied TIM and got no difference. Your cooler is slightly worse than mine (a degree or 2) which would put your temps spot on for 4.2ghz @ 1.18v.

At first these temps "alarmed" me but in the end I researched to find that it is the TCASE that cannot exceed 72C according to intel. Since tcase isn't monitored people throw out random thoughts on tcase compared to core temps. While everyone just guesses, I think a good rule of thumb is not to exceed 10C above 72C on the cores. Thus, so long as your cores stay below 82C you are really fine. Besides, you'll never see those temps in the real world anyway. MY Max temps in bf3 are like 59C.

^^ Yeah I am going to try and reseat but I am skeptical as to how much it is going to help. I am fairly confident in the way I applied TIM and I don't feel that I used an overabundant amount but like I said, I am willing to re-try.

I am the type of person who over worries. Probably because I can't afford to go out and replace anything that breaks so if anything doesn't run like I expect it to I panic. If I reset and it does not fix the problem I am a little concerned about what could be wrong? I hope my CPU or mobo isn't faulty, but I can't see how the mobo could be blamed because its giving the right voltage and does what it's supposed to.

For $20.00 you could buy the Intel Performance Tuning Protection Plan smile.gif

I did!
It cost me $25/£16, and now I couldn't care less if I blew my chip biggrin.gif
And had I got a bad chip. I'd have it replaced under the protection cover sneaky.gif

Ok well guys a little update, in the process of re-seating I noticed a small dent on the far right heat pipe. I have attached a picture. Is this even substantial enough to cause a problem?700
post #26 of 32
i'd be alot more worried about that crack on the far left pipe then the dent on the far right pipe:D

^^^Oh that's not a crack. It's a little left over TIM that I hadn't wiped off yet smile.gif

Ok guys well I re-applied thermal paste properly and reseated the heatsink. Its now maxing peaking at 59 under load in prime95. Is this more acceptable? Also, since this is new AS5 could I expect lower temps as it burns in?
post #29 of 32
Nice improvement. AS 5 only drops about 1C after 200 hours of cure time from cycling your PC on and off daily so you won't see any substantial change. The dent won't hurt anything. As long as that left heatpipe isn't cracked you should be good to go. Enjoy! thumb.gif

^^ and yup nice improvement for sure
