HELP!!!With 2550K - Page 5

post #41 of 49
meh, I speak out of personal experience, and I have (sitting in my closet) a hyper 212 evo. since I only every use AS mx-4 I can not comment on the supplied thermal paste included with any coolers. I also don't really see the point in a fan controller for the cpu cooler when I think most bios' have settings for cpu fan at a minimum. I do however believe a fan controller to be a must when wroking with multi fans on a watercooling set up or having a bunch of fans all over your case as most do anymore. I can say this though, just about any cooler he decides on will be am improvement over the factory POS he is using.

Indeed. Well, he also swapped TIM but that didn't seem to help much.

OP: I hate to say it but it still sounds like are getting a bad mount or something. Your case looks like it has some air flow so 41 C idle still seems too high. Most SB I have dealt with have idled around 30-35 and those were running off the iGPU as well. I would advise taking off the heatsink one more time, cleaning off all the old paste, and doing it one more time. Make sure that you are getting good contact, even TIM layer, and all four push pins are going through. The cooler should not wiggle or anything. That being said, there are many variables here. What are the ambient temperatures of the room where the computer is being operated? How good is your cable management in the case?

Many people are recommending buying a new heatsink, which is a good idea, especially if you are going to overclock. However, I don't think that immediately addresses the issue of so much heat on a stock set-up. After doing a solid remount of the heatsink, removing all possible airflow obstructions, and having someone double check it for you, carefully monitor temps while giving it some serious load and reevaluate the situation. Then you may want to purchase a better heatsink and see what kind of results you get. Anything decent on the market will definitely drop your temps.

Not a single person here in this thread asked about the Vcore and voltages in general... Considering it s a 2550k (a higher clocked 2500K with a faulty iGPU so it couldnt be sold as 2500k) there is a good chance that the CPU is simply bad and it has too much Vcore for 3.4 Ghz, or the IHS is not mounted properly on the chip...
I hate to say to U but u fell for marketing...as usual higher number in the name doesn't actually stand for a better product...

So go ahead and download CPUZ, RealTemp and prime95. Start CPUZ and RealTemp, than start prime95 and read the temps and Vcore.

Report the findings here. Screenshot is the way to do it. Than U can get some real help. U will most likely need to RMA ur CPU...if they accept it back.

And btw when on stock and with stock cooler SB i5 should newer go over 70 C. even if there is no fans to help the airflow in the case...

No one asked about the Vcore because he said its completely stock settings. The Vcore should more than likely be right around any other 2500 or 2550k which was 1.21v on my 2550k when I had it. It is something to look at to make sure it is where it is supposed to be but since he didn't change it...

Reapplying the TIM and reseating the heatsink properly should be the answer. It's also possible that the contact point on the heatsink is not completely flat. Hell, how much QA does intel have for heatsinks that 80% of the consumers don't use. I do agree that I have never seen a 2500k or 2550k with a stock cooler @ stock speed and volts not go over 70 to 72c though.


quick edit: Ohh and when re-seating the heatsink, put a bead of paste in the center of the cpu and as you seat the heatsink (before pushing the pin in place) wiggle the whole cooler a little bit. I don't know if anyone mentioned that before but I do that everytime for some unknown reason (habit) and I'm normally good on the first try. also make sure the black pegs are twisted in the locked position. If even one of them is loose it could cause your temps to be elevated.

Every CPU has a VID. And VID is different for every CPU. It s assigned Vcore at a given MULTI... and default Vcore depends on VID. I had 2 i5 2500K and they didn't have the same Vcore at same MULTIs... The one i m using now is better and stock Vcore for 3.3 Ghz is 1.2V, but the other one was at 3.3 Ghz @ 1.28 V while running prime95.

where do you live? and what is the usual temperature in your computer room? if its warm dry air, put on the air conditioning. Also are the fans in your case mounted correctly to bring air in or is it pulling air out? Try an aftermarket cooler like others have mentioned, the prolimatec megahlems is nice air one...

Also how much thermal paste did you apply to the cpu heatsink? there should only be about a pea sized dot of thermal paste in the middle of it, then put heatsink over it.. and make sure all 4 sides are screwed down enough in the correct order.

Is the cpu latched in the socket all the way with the latch secured properly?

Can you post any pictures of your setup?

Hrmm, Thats actually very interesting. maybe my luck has been good as I have had 2x 2500k's, 1 2550k, a 2600k and now using a 2700k. All of which were bought new and all of which have been with in .01 to .05v of each other @ stock speed settings. I know more V = more heat but like I said, going from my personal experience the cpu's I have had never varied that much on their VID or vcore stock settings. I only ever noticed the major differences in vcore when I got to the 4.8 and above oc range. Oddly enough, the 2550k I had performed the best in this aspect as I had it to 5.4ghz with a vcore of 1.41v.

Thanks for the link though. It was interesting to read.
