2500k + hyper 212 evo high idle temps???

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Hi there peeps,thumb.gif

These are my temps at stock speed, no overclocking. Ambient temp is 20c

I applied thermal paste that came with the hyper 212 evo by the spread method.
Idle temperatures across all four cores are 37 - 41 c
Load (Prime95 blend test) 57 -64 c.

So today I reapplied Arctic Cooling MX-2 by pea size method and reset my heatsink but no difference in temperature.

I have the default fans in the Antec One case (top and back exhaust)

I've read many posts where their idle temps are 20-30 c with the 2500k and hyper 212 combo. Not sure why mine is so high?

unless you know what there ambient temps are you really cant go by what their temps are. But for the temps your currently getting I cant really comment on that as if your stock its really not anything to worry about. I personally wouldnt be to worried about it as the temps are still within normal range unless you plan on overclocking later then yeah you need to find out whats going on if those temps are not normal.

TBH spread method is pretty crappy. Surprised that people still do it and seeing as the Hyper 212 is a HDT cooler(heatpipe direct touch) the pea method isn't very effective for it. You're better off doing 1-2 thin short lines. However the 212 is a slightly different type of HDT cooler than the ones this would normally apply to. However I think you can use your better judgement to determine how much should apply.

Use this for reference - http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=150&Itemid=62&limit=1&limitstart=5

Also you said you had default case fans, but what about fans for the cooler? I assume the one that comes with it? I'd recommend trying a push/pull setup and look for a change. You can take it a step further and do a side enclosure mod to secure the airflow flowing through.

Third method here on the evo, youll want t put your lines JUST on the crack between heatpipes 1,2 & 3,4 for a good square spread.

Also, your temps are high. I have a rig here I'm building with the 212 evo and before ocing temps were just a few C over ambient, which is a good sign of a good seat.

Edit: also with ambient of 24C, im not going over 53C full load with the stock fan.

There is no crack on the Evo.

There is, a point, where the heatpipes meet. closest thing to a crack you'll find.

...because of course marketing images try to show perfection where there isn't any.

Fossil - Yup I'm using the default fan that came with the hyper 212 evo.

All - Thanks guys for the advise, I will redo my thermal paste with the 2 short lines method on the heatsink. Will post back after the paste has settled with results.redface.gif

Installed an evo in my new build 3 weeks ago and all the online advice I saw was to use the pea method. This I did and unfortunately the compound came gushing out. Cleaned it up a bit and installed. My idle temps run 25-28 degrees. Not sure there is an ideal way or that it makes much difference. BTW I5 2500k.

Hard to judge other people's temps, as already mentioned, not only due to difference in room temp but difference in their case cooling layout. The temps you stated could be lower, especially with an ambient temp of 20c, but they're not high enough to be of concern.

Your low ambient temp relative to cpu temp suggests the issue may be case cooling. What case/fan setup are you running? Sorry if already mentioned. Take the side panel off for a while and see if that helps.

Oh crap I just read that. Get a front intake on that case if there isn't one, pronto. There should be a mount for it. Zip tie the sucker if you have to. That is it. That is your issue. I'd stake anything on it.
