FX-8150 going 70C idle?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So, I got my FX 8150 a couple of months ago. I applied new thermal paste to the stock cooler, because I screwed up the process of putting it in. When I got my computer working, it idled at 50c, which was fine. Now, it's a few months later and it's running at a whopping 60-70c when I'm idle. What the hell is wrong?

reapply TIM and reset heatsink

Even 50c is way too hot for idle temp. Something is seriously wrong. Remove, clean, apply TIM and reseat. Make sure your cooler fan is running up to full speed and make sure your case filter if any are clean.
