Finally!!!!!!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I just got my computer working. I didn't understand why my processor was running so hot. I only checked it in the bios, and it was running idle at 50c. I could not figure out what the heck was causing this. Naturally I have misplaced my AS5, so I had to reapply the stuff that came with the heatsink. I originally used AS5 and was getting these temps. It didn't really make a difference cause my temps were still high. Despite everyones suggestions I still couldn't fix it. I found a little bit of AS5 on the pins when I took the processor out. I was able to remove this with a toothpick and some 91% Alchohol. I also noticed one of the pins was bent. Now being the new computer builder that I am I realized this was something that I hadn't dealt with and it kinda made me feel nervous. Those pins are so incredibly small, but I was able to take the tooth pick and bend it back....phew!!! I put it back in and removed the old thermal compound...no sign of my AS5 still. I put the Thermal take grade thermal compound back on, booted her up, and my temps were at least running about 5 degrees cooler. I used that program Core Temp, which someone recommended and It said one core was running 29c and the other was running at 37c. I am sure if I put the AS5 it should drop the temps a little right? Also is it normal for these two cores to be running at different temps, or should they be roughly equal. This seems like a big difference to me, but I am not that familiar.

See your second post, in which you tried to use[indent] tags.

I just put a blank line between the paragraphs

well first off, seems like your not applying the TIM correctly.

Whipe off what you have now, annd put on a rice grain size of AS5, put the HSF on, twist a couple times and mount up, then load up and see your temps.

With stock paste it should be around 15-20 on each core at idle. Not sure where your getting your temps, but bios loads each core abit, but should display the cpu temp not each individual core at startup, unless your going to the PC Health section.
