e2220 overheating at stock speeds

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey, i recently got a Pentium Dual Core E2220 and i tested it out with OCCT.

When i launched the program, i saw that both cores were around 47 degrees idle... i wonder if that's normal. And when i started the stress test, both cores reached 70 degrees in 5 minutes, after which the test stopped cause it said "CPU too hot".

Now i didnt Overclock anything, and im sure ventilation and my stock CPU cooler is perfectly fine.

Anyone has any comments on this?

47 degrees idle is already wayyy too hot. Even for a stock cooler that's too hot.

Try a re-seat. AS5? MX-2?

ok... so maybe i forgot to put some thermal paste.... but i saw 3 "strips" of some sticky paste on the bottom of the aluminum block, so i thought that was the thermal paste.

It is thermal paste.
But it needs to be reapplied.
If not it leaves air pockets and cant transfer the heat.

edit:
Was it a new heatsink with the paste that came on it?
If so then it must not be mounted correctly.
