Intel Core i5 2500k overheating with BIG Shuriken 2b?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hey people, I just got Battlefield 3, and well, my stock fan wasn't doing very well when i was playing it- I reached temperatures up to 97 degrees in just a few minutes. So I got a new CPU cooler- BIG Shuriken 2b. Well, that didn't help. At all. Temperatures still raise to 97c when I'm playing battlefield 3, although a bit slower. Could it be the thermal paste? I haven't changed it for at least 2 years, and I'm not sure what thermal paste did I use in the first place.

Did you not apply new paste when you switched coolers?

Are both coolers ramping to full speed when things get hot?

Are you over clocking at all? Check your voltages at load.

Exactly the questions I would ask. Nice thinking silvrr.

I took my PC to a technician to install the cooler; I'm not very good when it comes to tinkering with computers. I'm not sure if he applied new thermal paste.

I'm not sure if it does ramp to full speed, it only gets a tiny bit louder, but not much. How can I check?

I'm haven't overclocked yet, but at the load the voltage for the processor is around 1.3v if I'm not mistaken.

When you switch on your computer, enter the BIOS by pressing F12 or Del.

click on Reset to defaults/ custom defaults and save> restart.

Check temps .

I've got two options for reseting to defaults: Fail safe and optimized. Which one should I choose?

Alright, I reset it using the "optimized" setting and it's still overheating, although this time it's around 80 degrees. Tomorrow I'll go over to the technician and ask him if he changed the thermal paste. If he did, I'm all out of ideas.

What all do you have? Case, case fans, GPU, RAM, motherboard, etc.

It's an old rig:

Case: Antec Three hundred Case
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500 3.3G 6M
Motherboard: MB H67 S1155 ATX/GA-H67A-UD3H GIGA-BYTE
Hard drive: WD Caviar black 1tb 3.5" SATA3 7.2K 64mb
Power supply: Chieftec PSU 600w 14cm atx eps cab.m
Graphics card: MSI GTX 560 TWIN FROZN OC PCIE 1GB GDDR5
RAM: a-data 4gb oc ddr3 dimm 1600g 128x8 9 (I've replaced it with 8gb's of ram, but I really can't recall with what)

That's it, excluding the DVD/R.

Good. Antec 300 is a good case.

What fans do you have in the case... intake and exhaust?
