2600k stock temps

post #1 of 53
Thread Starter 
i finished building my first pc a few months ago but still didnt finalize it just put in my video card and added some more fans so i ran some tests again


i dont know if will ever overlock but i assume down the line i will

i have a coolermaster 212 evo

so firstly when people talk about there idel temps do they mean temps while in windows and nothing is really doing anything or do you they mean in bios before windows loads

well if its in windows i goes anywhere from 30-45c it seems with it just sitting doing nothing

so i ran prime95 for about 18 hours and that maxes it out at 64-66c during that 18 hours room temp was anywhere from 71-78 f

then today i ran ibt ran that at max 8 threads 10 passes max was 68c with room temps being around 75-77 f

both ran with no errors

does this seem like good temps? for running stock? and do you think my cooler is sitting good?

besides the cpu fan i have 2 140mm fans on top for exhaust one in the back for exhaust and 2 front intake

If your computer is sitting on your desktop and running at the temps you listed (30-45c), it seems a bit high. When I'm not doing a single thing on my PC, my temps idle at 22C-25C (depending on the core). I'm on a Dark Knight, but temps should be very similar, your temps should possibly be better in fact as I thought the 212+ Evo was better than the DK.

What thermal paste are you using? What method did you use to apply to the paste?

The pea method is not the best method to use on these coolers.

Take a look at:

i saw that link before buying and its one of the reasons i went with the evo instead of the plus the evo doesnt have the gaps on the pipes as displayed in this review http://www.pureoverclock.com/review.php?id=1368&page=3

so i figure since it doesnt that the pea method wouldnt be a problem

I would still apply it about the same way and see if your temps decrease. HDT coolers seem to also need a little more paste as well.

Try putting thin strips on the new inner pipes. A paste with no cure time IMO is preferred as you'll have instant results instead of needing to wait like AS5.

if im re doing this what other precautions should i take to insure its set right what should i make sure of doing besides the right method and right paste
post #10 of 53
I think those load temps are just fine on auto voltage.
And yes... idle temps mean sitting in windows with ~0-1% cpu usage. BIOS temps are always higher than idle temps.

edit. And changing thermal paste to something "better" might not have a very big impact at all. For example... when I switched from the cooler master stock tim to MX-4 my temps didn't drop... at all. They're now exact same or 1C higher.
