faulty i5 stock fan?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, some of you recommended that I take off the stock i5 2500k heatsink and fan and reseat it, well I just tried that and the motherboard is still saying 60 then shoots up to 98, 99 then says A3. A little info:

This is my first time doing this.
Is the mother board temp even acurate?
I haven't installed the bios or anything brand new comp put together do I need to install the bios?

I unhooked the case to check and see if the fan was turning and it was, wasn't hitting anything as far as I could see, but it has a noise almost like putting a baseball card on a bicycle tire (idk if that is normal or not it's not a big noise but is kind of annoying).

I'm to scared to leave it on for over a second since the mobo is saying its 98, I bought a rocketfish heatsink and fan that I could try but i really would rather just take it back if I can avoid putting it in.

Is it overclocked at all?
Go into the BIOS and check the temps there.
If you have a camera take some pics so we can see how you set everything up.

ok I am retarded, the thing on the mobo is just for showing the codes of the motherboard it has nothing to do with the temp. I went into the mobo bios settings and the cpu temp is around 54-57 which im guessing is high? the mobo temp is staying around 23-27c. The cpu fan rpm is only 2,038 on the highest speed and im guessing that is bad as well? Plus when I turn it on the cpu fan makes that noise and im guessing that isn't normal either?

those temps arent great, you should try the rocketfish heatsink as just about anything is better than stock. What kind of thermal paste do you have?

Well, I used the stock paste that came with the fan first then I bought some dynex paste and used that which was a horrible idea, but im sure you already know that lol. I guess im just going to use the thermal paste that the rocketfish cooler comes with. If it makes that much more difference to use a AS5 compound then I will go to radio shack tommorow and get it.

I would rather go with AS5, but make sure to completely clean all the old paste off.
Also make sure not to get any AS5 on the board as it is conductive.

Better video, shows how to remove paste and apply new paste.

so it is best to coat the whole cpu with a thin coat of it?

I just put 2 small dabs and spread it about half an inch across, do you think coating it in a thin coat all the way around like that would add more cooling?
post #10 of 10
Yea but when you put the heatsink on and screw it down it will spread it all the way out evenly.
