Huge problem with my temps...

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Just got a 2500k and I was pretty excited. I bought an upgraded cooler and figured I would be good to go. So, everything is installed but I'm having some seriously TERRIBLE TEMPS.

Idle: 4 cores ~38c
Prime 95: STARTS at 75c then hits 80 really quickly. I pretty much just shut it off ASAP since I don't want to go above 70 especially given my cooler (H60).


I overclocked it up to 4.2 using ~1.3v which I think is okay. Now I was thinking, "Hmm... maybe the H60 is defective" so I go over and touch the lines -- something is definitely flowing through there, and its slightly warm to the touch. I reseated it thinking that was the problem... nope... getting slightly higher temps. What gives? On my AMD system I barely hit 25 idle and 55 load. Let me know what you guys think!

Did you check the block to make sure it didn't have a thin plastic film on it? Sometimes it is put on from the factory for protection and it is hard to notice it is even there.

Lol I took the plastic off. If I didn't, I probably would have smelled that nasty burning plastic smell since I got it up to 85C...

did you try to take it back to stock clocks and look at your temps?

Yeah stock brings temps down ~10c load, idle the same

i'm not a watercooler, but i would try to clean off the TP and reapply it and see if that helps.

my 950 on air at stock clocks is in the upper 60s on prime.

Clean the heatshield with at least 70% isopropyl alcohol (90%+ better) and reapply the TIM. Those temps are out of control for a water cooler.

Well it seems you have done all the troubleshooting you can. Maybe another reseat with a better TIM might help. I hear the stock TIM isnt that good. Or you may have a defective h60, in which case RMA it. Im not a fan of the Corsair hydros but even the h60 should peform better than that.

If you want to stay with water and use a closed loop cooler, maybe upgrade to a h80 or h100! Or spend $120 - $180 on a Rasa 750 kit thumb.gif

Yea, the Sandy bridge CPU's are aimed at staying cool (intel obsession in cooler cpu's) so it really shouldn't be hitting that kind of heat.
