2500k Idle at 60c, I am quite worried? [solved] - Page 2

post #11 of 69
Its the stock cooler. You have to let it heat up a little bit before the thermal paste melts onto the chip. Then the stock cooler will bring down the temperature.

It was like this using intels already applied thermal paste from when i built it in december, I tried reappling to see if it'd help but it's the same as before.

Whats your environments temperature. That can play a big role in your temps.

I'm not too sure I don't have any thermometers in the house but I live in england without any radiators on or anything so any heat is from the computer i'd say it's probably around 20c?

It's really not, my C2D , stock 2 GHz OCed to 3 GHz has 35c idle on stock cooler. And it has a locked multiplier so it is always at 3GHz.

I don't know how to do it in Bios all the options seem greyed out? I have also just put the vcore down to 1.2750

My mainboard also reports being incredibly hot especially during load.

have you tried any other monitoring software like coretemp?

What are your temps at stock?

not sure how to get it down to stock as the intel booster is doing it? I've never used it before haha. 381

Your problem is probably dust where the cpu and motherboard meet.You could try reseating.
Other than that, is your cpu fan plugged in? ( I hope so tongue.gif ) If so, what are your temps without the overclock? If you still idle above 35 with idle clocks, then you definitely have a problem.
Also, your vcore was a bit too high for that overclock, 1.275 IMO is still a bit too high even for 4.2, since I have 1.27 for my 4.4Ghz OC, but that's clearly not the reason your temps are still wayyyy too high

Last thing, don't overclock with software, it's unstable, and under/overvolts every time. If you want to overclock, depending on your motherboard, there are lots of guides available . smile.gif

I reseated it earlier, there is no dust between there. and good god the fan is definetly plugged in I fear what would happen if it weren't. I've also tried following the guide to my motherboard overclocking but for some reason they all seem to be different to what I have displayed and my options to change the values in the bios are greyed out.

edit: I don't know how to get it to stock because of the intel boost.
