H50 at 60 Celsius ? ??

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hi there ,

After getting a new system , I am slightly overclocking my i2500K on a ASUS p8p67 (B3) , and I am getting a idle reading of 60 Celsius ...

Do these chips run super hot or if my H50 acting weird ? I haven't had it for a very long time , about 6 months , ...

thank you

Ralph

Maybe the RAD is clogged with dust. try getting an air-can and putting some of the dust out of there .

If it's not dust, try reseating the heatsink with fresh TIM.

I get 29C idle (59C load) with my H50 and 2600K OC so something isn't right.

If the above post doesn't help out, what are you using to read temps? and did you do a clean install?

I just upgraded as well and used my H50 from the last build. When I started CoreTemp it was showing a very high reading 67c, which I knew couldn't be right , as the BIOS had said otherwise.

So I re-installed CoreTemp and it showed idle at 30c, happy days

I got everest software now , and reading now around 40 idle , but I saw earlier in the Bios a reading of 53 celsius. When I run Prime 95 the temps fly to 70's . I haven't cleaned the radiator yet. I was also hoping for 29-30 celsius idle ^^

I thing I should include is that when I re-installed the H50 , and put the screws for 1156 they WOULD not align with the P8P67 CPU holes correctly. I had to cut the struts (narrow) one on the top , and so got them aligned. However , even though the thin strut is now severed , I managed to get a firm fit on all sides . I might have to re-check it indeed. I use CF III thermal compound ..

Thanks for the feedback .

Before I used HW monitor to read CPU temps , but they sometimes didn't even display the CPU temps , or had them stuck at 60 all the time.

Anyone know which is the most accurate in temp display for newer boards ? thanks

Define slightly overclocked?

but definitely shouldn't be getting idle of 60c

Check the rad is clear fans are turning, pump is working, the sink is seated properly on your cpu tightened down correctly, Reseat it if not sure make sure you use decent thermal paste when you do.

Also check your overclock and make sure you have not done anything stupid like add way too much on the vcore.

Probably why you're getting wild temps. The H50 fits fine without modification on the 1155 boards.

If the heatsink isn't properly seated due to inadequate fitting, temps will rocket.
