It's not about attention span, it's about readability. He's put breaks in now, but the whole thing was a wall of text, which unless you've got enormous font or are reading it at 1200 x 800 is going to be a serious strain on the eyes.

I guess i'm going to remove the current cooler and put the stock cooler on until I can get this one returned and get a new one. I'm just confused of why even without overclocking it's sitting at 60 idle

Edit: Going to double check the mounting on the cooler
yeah dont do software overclocks either if you are going to overclock use the bios

Your cooler should be producing much lower temps. That cooler is better than the stock cooler that comes with the 2500k, and the stock cooler would keep the CPU much cooler than what you are getting.

If I had to guess, it is definitely the mounting of the cooler that is the problem here. You should start completely from scratch by cleaning the thermal paste off of the CPU and cooler and reapplying. Follow the instructions on Arctic Silver's website for cleaning and applying the thermal compound. Then make sure that the cooler has a tight, even fitting against the CPU.

Change the cooler. I had it, and it was woefully inadequate on my i7. That thing is crap, I really regret buying it. Get a decent cooler, Like an NH-D14.

Im not at home to run any more tests but before I left I put the stock cooler on and got 40C idle then put the aftermarket cooler on and got 37. My problem was that due to the poor design of the aftermarket cooler it was on sideways and not completely covering the cpu. I haven't been home to do a stress temp test yet but is 37 idle sound about normal non oc?i don't know what else to do from there, im intending on just finding a new coolerno more than 50$
