CPU around 10 degrees hotter after SSD installation

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
I used to idle around 28 degrees, now its 38 degrees after I installed a Samsung EVO 250 gb SSD. Is this normal?

I heard that wiping your old HDD clean will bring the temperature back to normal. Should I try that?

What does wiping a HDD down have to do with your CPU temps??

And no this isn't normal. Sounds like you screwed up your CPU heatsink while installing your SSD.

Is your CPU under some kind of load all the time instead of being idle?

It could be some software that you installed along with the SSD causing like a 5 - 10% CPU load all the time which would run up the temps. Open up task manager and let the CPU graph go for a few minutes and make sure it's actually idling.

If this isn't the case you must've bumped the CPU heatsink or something while messing around inside the computer.

My CPU is actually running 10 degrees hotter after installing my SSD, but that's because I started running new apps that needed a SSD to perform reasonably that put a 10 - 20% load on my CPU 24/7.

Did you maybe disable c-states?
And you just keep give in us limited information .Give us a screenshot of cpu-z or something else.Give us something more that we can conclude something from it.

Someone suggested uploading screenshots to show temp, cpuz and task to view activity. Can't really help you if you won't give info that is needed. Post those and we can start narrowing it down. It's either some program or unseated heatsinked, maybe even an unplugged fan.
