2500k + Mugen 2 rev.B - temps question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I have 2500K Oc'ed to 4Ghz with voltage 1,24V and after 7 hours of prime95 blend test my temps reached max 70C. Isn't it a liitle to high for mugen 2 ?

My case is a cooler master elite 331 with one fan in front pulling air inside and one in the back pushing it out. I do think of changing my case to SilentiumPC Regnum L50 but anyway, how about these temps ? I have only 1 fan with mugen. When I turn off the test the temps drop instantly to 45 and then to around 40 (during normal usage). Could this be a sign of too much thermal paste? I spreaded it on the cpu with my finger (in plastic glove) in a way that if I wanted to spread it more I could see the cpu (although the layer wasn't almost transparent)

Maybe it's because the paste has like 1,5 year? It's been closed and in a dark place but anyway ? The thermalpaste is Arctic Silver 5

might want to reapply some thermal paste and just do a strip down the middle like shown here

Perhaps some air bubbles got trapped in there

You mean just do a strip and mount the sink withouth spreading the thermal paste ? I've read that it's always better to spread a very thin layer on the cpu.

I've just read that the break-in period is 200h. I have the paste spreaded since last wednesday. Maybe the paste just didn't gain it's full properties yet?

The temps are supposed to get better once the burn in is finished. Most people don't spread the paste themselves since there is a chance at might create air bubbles that will trap heat.

I lowered the voltage from -0,040V to -0,045V and after running prime95 for 2,5h my max temp showed by HWMonitor was 67C on one of the cores. I'll try lowering the voltage a little bit more (right now max was 1,232V) and I will re-apply the paste by doing a strip as said on AS website.

I used to do that, but have done the strip since I moved to my i5. Overall, it has worked just fine
AS does have a long break-in period, but I don't think you will notice THAT drastic of a change.
and what V did you lower?

I've lowered the core voltage. Now it's set to -0,100V and my max temp was 65C after 8h of blend test.

Funny, because one night before that i had my voltage set to -0,095 and after 7h of prime test my max temp was 61C..
