Help! Sandy Bridge overheating!

post #1 of 102
Thread Starter 
New build is just acting crazy, my temps with intel stock cooler are about 53c in bios, 37c idle and when running prime it immediately shoots up 20 degrees to 65c or so, then starts to gradually climb. The highest I let it go was like 80 before I stopped the test

The mobo is at about 29c and the room temp is about 22c and this is at stock settings

I've reseated the hsf different times, tried 2 different brand thermal paste with no luck. Somebody tell me this isnt right.

Should I go exchange the proc & mobo? HEEEEELLLPP!!!

(2500k & P8P67)

make sure the HSF is on correctly. if all is in stock then i would think that.

frankly what do you expect with the intel stock cooler...dont destroy a £280 chip with a free cooler, go buy an aftermarket one for £50 and use that chip to its full potential by overclocking it.

I'm no sandy bridge expert, but there isn't an i7 2500K. The 2500K is an i5.

haha your right (I'm a intel noob), but yea, I would expect the stock cooler not to let it overheat when its being used thought. Doesn't seem right that the temps should get that high at stock settings

What does the thermal paste look like when you remove the cooler?
