New i7 sandy bridge running too hot? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I've seen the preapply paste on the stock cooler, its pretty lame, I say go to a local computer store and pick up some thermal paste and clean off the old stuff and apply the new stuff on (you can google/youtube on how to apply Thermal paste correctly)

If your local computer store is closed, you can get the Dynex thermal paste at bestbuy(Its not the best stuff but it works better than most think) I've used it and it kept all my temps really good. Or go to your local radioshack(they sometimes carry Artic Silver 5 which should be good enough)

Were you ocing it? O.O check your bios settings and tell us what it says. I'd say it got overvolted or overclocked some how and there in lies your problem otherwise I'd say you got a defective cooler or chip. Also make sure you have fans pushing the air out of the case as otherwise all the hot air just gets trapped and makes things worse.

that temp is pretty normal for stock intel coolers my 920 easily hits the 100C throttle point just browsing the web with the stock cooler.

You may want to check the temps with a program like HWMonitor or whatever program comes with your mobo. I had an ASUS P8P67 Pro (original before the revision) and in the bios it would say my idle was in the 60s but when I checked in HWMonitor and the software that came with my mobo my idle was in the 30s.

Also make sure you correctly turned the plastic screw things because thats what presses the heatsink to the cpu.

That's running very hot. I have the 2500k and under prime 95 it barely gets that hot. I'll admit that the fan and paste are pretty hard to apply properly. It's one of the main reasons im upgrading the 212+ because im pretty sure i applied it incorrectly the first time around
