i7 2600K Temp question HELP PLEASE

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am using a Cooler Master Hyper n520 cooler...I idle at around 29C-33C and ran prime95 small FFT CPU test and was up to 69C at load...is that too high for load? I ran the test for like 1-2 hours. The instructions had me install this cooler backwards because the air is being blown back into the case rather than facing towards the rear exhaust fan (I didnt know this until I turned the PC on for the first time!)...would that make much of a difference? And I applied Arctic Silver using the pea size squirt in the middle of the CPU method, should I reapply and try the 'thin line' method?

69C is not too much for Sandy, but what voltage are you running at, stock?

Also, for the record, Im using this on a Sabertooth p67 mobo which has 4-pin fan connector but the hyper n520 has a 3 pin connector. I read that using a 3 pin on a 4 eliminates the option for PWM? not too sure what this is because from what I've been seeing, the hyper n520 runs at a fixed 1800 RPM. Asus monitor shows it running a little higher than 1800 RPM...does this whole PWM thing mean it would run it faster?

You could try a remount might help. Also I would set the cooler to push air out rear fan and set the rear fan to exhaust out case if its not already. Should help it they are set to work against each other now. You have a link to the cooler by chance not familiar with its thermal capabilities.

Need more info.. were you overclocking or stock.

Install the fan so air is blowing out..not in to your case.

So your temps are within acceptable limits but are a little high for stock...just a heads up.

Just make sure your fans are blowing out...it should bring temps down
