Regarding this issue, I think I may have screwed it on too tight; When three of the four corners of the retention plate were secured, the last corner just wouldn't go in for s**t and I have to practically force it in. My retention plate snapped after I removed it so I'm waiting on a new one before I can mount it again. What should I clean the thermal paste off the CPU once I get everything sorted?

My 212+ arrives in an hour. thumb.gif

Seeing a couple "too much / too little" pasting problems.

What is the perfect amount of paste to apply?

Fill in the gaps between the heat pipes and the base, then apply a pea sized amount on your CPU.

Got it thanks ^

What is everyone idling at and what program do you use for temperature?

My BIOS tells me I'm idling at 42c CPU and 25c MOBO.

I'm reading a lot of 30c CPU idle temps so I think I did something wrong. redface.gif

But most importantly I POSTed my first PC build ever today thumb.gif

What's your ambient? Mines 61F according to my space heaters thermostat (my actual space heater not my sig tongue.gif)
Push/pull generic CM fans @ 1200 rpm (on fan controller)
This is the program I like to use. If I'm getting two different readings I always go with the highest (especially if it's reported in bios)

correct me if i'm wrong but i think its

65nm cpu -> core temp
45nm/32nm cpu -> real temp

for most accurate temp readings/results ?

That's not completely accurate because when in the BIOS the CPU isn't at idle. Idk what % it's at but it's definitely not idling. Try looking at it in Windows and I bet it'll be lower

My idle temperatures on my old E5200 is actually higher in Windows than its temperatures in bios.
