Is my temps okay?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
replaced a stock w/ BT and only got few degree cooler. Even I replaced a stock BT fan w/ higher speed (silver Stone @ 2300RPM).
First turn on computer. temps reading at 36C ran for awhile, temps slowly raise up to 42-44C most of the time is 42, Mainboard temps is 36-38C. Is the temps OK or it should be lower ?
Any tip to make temps go lower?

Well with the BT you can get lower than that i would try Getting some bette thermal Compound such as Arctic silver 5. Or you can always buy a faster fan for your BT aswel. When it comes to your Chipset thos Temps are pretty normal with the Stock chipset cooler and you overclock..

Tighten the bolts a bit more. Maybe you have too much thermal paste? If nothing else works, you can always lap.
Not bad at all...

Did you use ARTIC AS5? You know you only need a little of that stuff.. Those are idle temps I assume, but are they at stock or OC-ed? Few comments:
- arctic AS5 takes ~200 hours to cure; temps might drop a few degrees
- I've heard the BT needs to be mounted really really tight. Make sure it's making good contact with the CPU. Just be careful not to cause any damage!!!

Yes like the others have said with that Heatsink you may need to screw it down abit more so its making a decent contact with the top of your CPU'S IHS.

I tight it really good, I m afraid if tight abit more will break the mainboard I used the AS5 as a thermal compound and have the system run, then off, then run for around 5 days already. I even lapped the TB right after get it out from box.
The only thing I did not sure is the AS5 I drop about 1.5 size of the rice (uncook) in the middle then but the TB on top and fasten the screw down to mobo.

Well before Taking the Heatsink off you need to wait a while for the AS5 to cure then see what your Temps are like..Remember that if the room you are in is hot then this will also affect Cpu temps.
