2600K and 212+ Running 60 Idle and Hot in General??

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I just built a machine with the following specs:

Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3
Corsair 16gb Vengeance
i7-2600k
Corsair TX 650
Hyper 212+
Radeon 6870

I'm running it all in an older Lian Li case with 2x120 in and 2x120 out (Panaflo's).

I've reseated and tightened the screws on the 212+ retention clip and mounting plate four times. I've re-applied the TIM (the one from the 212+ box) the same amount of times. The last time, I used very thin lines alongside each gap of the copper and aluminum plates. The surface of my 212+ LOOKs to be clean and flat.


What should I do?

What should I do?

First what is your ambiant temp. second what is your voltage and clock speed at? My guess is that your using to much TIM, or the fan is on low. The 212+ has a PWM fan so it might be set low in the BIOS. have you checked the FAN RPM in FanSpeed or similar?

BIOS reads ~22C for ambient, but in OS, it is reading 55?

I'm running at 1.275v and 4.2 GHz right now. I experience relatively high temperatures at completely stock as well.

Fan is reading 2000 RPM in OS.


I would estimate I laid 4 lines of TIM of approximately 1mm thickness along the length of the heatsink (with small margins as to not spill out the sides)

Sounds like you put too much, try this:

450

Once you have done that, download the latest version of realtemp from HERE and post a screenshot smile.gif


Good luck thumb.gif

Yes, putting too much can hurt just as well as putting too little, Try a simple reseat .

The BIOS wont tell you your ambiant temp. Your ambiant temp is the temp of the room the PC sit's in. Second, what program are you using to monitor temps? I use Open Hardware Monitor. I'm better the program your using is giving a false reading.

I'm almost out of TIM lol. I'm going to reapply one last time (although I truly feel I did what is pictured, i've read that guide ten times because of the heat issues haha)

Any other suggestions before I drop in stock, return my 212+ to amazon and look for another option?

I have the same CPU and cooler and I run 35C idle and 65-69 under load. I think your CPU might not be going into idle mode. Check your Power Settings under Power Options and make sure it's set to Balanced and not High Performance. Also, make sure that in your BIOS EIST and the other power settings are enabled.

I just reapplied using the above method with 3 lines (since the 212+ has more pipes)

Here's what was there when I removed the 212+

EDIT: Upon reapplication, I'm seeing the same temps.

EDITx2: I'm going to try the credit card and spread a thin layer idea soon. Thoughts?

Why don't you just try the two line method? As mentioned before three lines may be too much.

Leave the middle one empty and use two lines, once the cooler is attached the pressure will do all the work in spreading it accordingly. Also are you reading the temps in the BIOS or in the OS, if in the OS, what software are you using?
