i5-2500k Stock Heatsink help

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just finish to build my new computer in an old case but it is just for a short time (will keep all stock until I get my new case from RMA). I start it and go in the bios because i didn't have install windows on my hard drive yet.

I just look on the temps of my cpu and I was like wow! It is hot!. I hit 53*C in like 2 min on the stock intel cooler (don't want to put my watercool system on that case, to long for nothing)

But i'm wondering if I have set the heatsink correctly and I don't know how to check that (It look really easy to put in... maybe to)

From what I saw on the intel manuel, I have just to push the 4 "screw"/buttons and that is!

I want to know how I can improve that before I install windows. I believe the max temps for my i5-2500k is aroud 70 but I don't want to pass 60-65 for it life and it is why I will watercool it.

The rig is in my sig in green.

Thanks for help Lee ~

well if your case is coming soon then i would not worry about it too much since you will be WCing it. Running a little hot for a few days wont cause any damage to the CPU and if you are really worried, try reseating the heatsink. Usually they put too much TIM when they pre-apply the stuff and it is lower quality TIM too. Use a rice sized amount on the CPU in the center and then put the heatsink on with as much pressure as the workings allow. Maybe a tiny bit more than a rice sized amount but thats what i did with my 4.2GHz i7 920 overclock and it idles at 34C while gaming gets to 54C and intel burn test on max stress only gets up to 69C.

I don't have windows install! I just don't have the time this night XD

I was monitoring the temp directly from the bios because it is the only thing I can do now (maybe... I think I have an ubutu disk somewhere... tomorrow... no tomorrow is windows XD)

Thanks for your help
