Are my temps normal with this new cooler?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Just installed a Cool Master Hyper 212 evo CPU cooler earlier today, and while the temps are still kind of high.

On stock settings, at 100% load using prime 95, temps go up to high 50's, low 60's. Idle temps at no lower than 30 degrees (Why so high at idle?)

At overclocked settings (4.4GHZ via asus oc tuner) , temps peak at 85 degrees, also idle at no lower than 30.

Is this normal? From the reviews I saw, idle temps were much lower than this, and peak temps were also notably lower. Also, should I be using Asus AI Suite to monitor these temps or another 3rd party app?

I'm not too familiar with the temps of an intel chip but since you saying that they are high. Have you considered your airflow? what TIM have you used?

not to sound like a creep, but where do you live? Temperatures are all dependent on your ambient air temperature of the place you live, most places that do these reviews are somewhere in the US. I'm in Aus and my ambients in my room sometimes reach 35 degrees, so on water I idle in the low 40's on my overclock.
Also it depends on what TIM you are using

The TIM I used came with the heatsink. I'm not familiar what it is, i'll poke around and find out.

Also, Ambient room temp is 23 degrees.

Edit: According to the CM hyper 212 owners club, it came with Thermal Fusion 400. However, according to some advice posted there, I should have applied the TIM in a different way than what I did. It only came with a small amount (Just enough for a single application), so i'll need to pick up a tube of it if im to try again.

The room temp seems fine. Have you mounted the cooler properly? Which way is the fan facing? Is it facing the ram slots or away from the ram slots?

run real temp to check your temps, it will show each core temp. my i7 970 6 core temps are 17c 24c 24c 28c 28c 30c and running prime 95 the hottest core is 58c. did you apply the tim as 1 dot the size of a grain of rice, i and lots others have found this is the best way. also what speed is your cpu fan running? is your bios controlling it or are you with add on software? I control my fan speed on my cpu with ASUS Fan Xpert that came with my board, if you have no such software with your board you can download speed fan for free. and don't forget to check airflow in your case and is the heat sink mounted so the fan is sending hot air out the back of the case? one last thing is your temps are not too bad but can be improved. I run the Xigmatek dark knight night hawk edition. oops i don't think speed fan will let you control the cpu fan. my fan is a 4 pin and is plugged into the mother board but I can still controll it with my software as it came with the board. your bios should have a few fan settings to choose from for your cpu fan and maybe it's set on a mild one and not a performance one.

The fan is positioned on the side of the heatsink that faces the ram, and it appears to be sucking air through that side and blowing it through the other side.

@jlhawn, I applied the TIM as a single dot on the middle of my processor, but according to the CM hyper 212 evo club, I should have applied it directly to the bottom of the heatsink instead, making sure to get it in between the heat pipes.

Yep, very normal...have no need to worry at all.

I'm using the 412 Slim CM cooler...and my idle for my 3770 ivy is high 30's and sometimes low 40's...and its not even overclock at all. With Prime 95, it climbs to high 60's and 70's almost instantaneously...and more or less sustains there. smile.gif However, i'm living in a topical country so ambient temp is always high, not like those living in the northern sphere..where low 20's during summer is perfectly normal.

Exactly you should have put it in thin strips along the cooper pipe lines at the base of the cooler. If you can slap on another 120mm fan and that should help temps to reduce further. Maybe even by a good 5c.

yes i have heard that about doing your tim that way with direct heat pipe contact style heat sinks as my heat sink is direct contact and i tried both ways and as long as the heat sink has been milled nice and flat both ways had the same effect for me the tim spread was contacting all the heat pipes and the cpu. you can always remove the cpu and look and see how good of contact and spread that the tim made. I use CM Thermalfusion 400 tim so i'm sure your tim is good stuff as it's the same company (coolermaster)
