Is this normal?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Alright, so I installed my Hyper 212 EVO on my i5-3570k, and OC'd to 4.2 ghz. Got 33-35 C as my idle temps. I had to remove the cooler, however (due to it being positioned wrong), and re-replaced it. Now my idle temps are 36-39 C. Is this normal? I used a coffee filter + 91% alcohol to clean the CPU and cooler... :C. Thanks!

You probably didn't put the cooler back on properly. Take it off, clean it, and put it on again.

Alright, I guess.

You see, it was facing upwards on my fractal r4. Now, it's facing the exaust fan, and I'm getting LOWER temps. I'll see what I can do.

Fixed, turns out my heat was at 80 F tongue.gif

It's like room temp, temps are now 34-36 C
