I5 2500k & H60 with abnormal Temps. - Page 3

post #21 of 26
What is your current plan now? Did you contact Intel support?

Or could this be something being off about the board? For example something might be off about the socket making it impossible to mount a cooler right. But if that's the case, shouldn't the board's temperature sensor that's probably hidden below the CPU inside the socket somewhere show high temperature?

A while ago I read somewhere that a waterblock for a GPU wasn't making good contact with the GPU. This was a factory problem as many people had this problem. They solved the problem by putting a thin layer/block of copper between the GPU and the waterblock.

If you try to do this, it could at least solve the problem if it is mount-related.

Well plans at the moment, I ordered a new Z87 board and i5 4670K since the overclock was just to avoid upgrading for a few more months, In the mean time Ill be calling Intel Customer Support when i have some time off work to try and resolve this and possibly RMA the parts (Fingers crossed).
Ive tried a friends H80 on my the 2500k and Board with the same results, So it cant just be incorrect mounting since I've remounted the back plate for these coolers multiple times now, while repasting, cleaning with isopropyl alcohol etc..

I meant a manufacturing mistake with the board, the socket itself being crooked somehow, tilted, making it impossible to have good contact with this board.

Could be possible but wouldn't the sensor on the motherboard read the same or similar high temperatures that are showing for the CPU sensors?
It just seems odd that there is such a large difference.

Yes, that's what I'm thinking as well. I've never seen a board's sensor showing something too much different compared to the CPU core readings. And for you, it's like 30c or 40c difference.

It just seems so strange thinking it might be Intel's mistake.
