it's alright. they have this thing called "CPU BREAK IN" or something like that. that's what i meant with cpu degradation,

How about things you install and run in the background, causing more processor usage. Even when my computer is idling i still get reports of processor usage between 1-7% at times. All the windows services, antivirus and other things.

I'm thinking there may be something that makes use of the processor and thus it gets warmer.

I would also say re-seat the heat sink and check ambient temps. When i got my cooler and after reading OCN for a while before it, i came to the conclusion that my idle temps were high, and was mad. Only to notice later that my actual room temp was higher that i knew it normally to be. Also re-seated the cooler and temps went down.

I know you said there can't be dust, but after 3 weeks of daily usage the intake filters on my case were covered completely with dust. Cleaned them up and got 2 degrees lowered.

I heard of thermal paste break in but not cpu. And even that is supposed to lower temps not get them higher.
MX-4 i remember reading did not have a long break in period.

I think that says MX-4. And yeah i know its has a virtually no break in period (or its rather negligible of only a few hours) since i wanted to get that myself but could not find it at the time.

Did you flush your rads before installing them? Could be some gunk in your loop caught in the block. Just a thought.

Could it be that the CPU block has somehow become slightly loose? Could you try tightening up the bolts to see if that can bring your temps down a little?

Thanks for all the responses! I'll check the dust situation tomorrow but I don't think it's the issue.
The CPU load idea does actually make sense, but I don't remember installing much besides Fallout New Vegas and mods biggrin.gif but I'll definitely check it out.

The CPU block tension may Lso be something to look at. I know I had issues because I over tightened originally but after the rebuild I think it was perfect. I'll definitely crack her open and see how it feels (:

Last but not least: I did flush my rads about 5+ times with fresh distiller after a vinegar+distilled flush biggrin.gif nonetheless thank you for the input.

Uh! That was an effort on my phone! I'll test everything thoroughly tomorrow and report back! If there are any more ideas keep em coming, but than you to all this far! This is why I love OCN!

It usually doesn't look like much, but think about all the windows updates, office software, antivirus related service, drivers for all the hardware. All those can add to cpu usage even if it's a bit they can make your processor work a little bit more and thus get a little bit hotter, even at idle.

Also when i want to see idle temperatures i close all programs running (even Nvidia control panel, Msi afterburner, browser, surround sound software... u name it) and then whatever does not seem like it would crash windows, from the processes list. Except RealTemp or whatever you are using to monitor temps obviously smile.gif .
That's my idea of it.
