Normal Load Temps for 2500K?

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
I just put my build together two days ago () using an i5-2500K, stock heatsink and AS5 (yes, I know, it's old). But when I put it under load, it hits almost 100C with Prime 95. (Using RealTemp and HWMonitor for temps.) My idles are at about 50C. I know AS5 has a curing time, but is it really that bad half-way cured? If it helps, I used the spread method to apply it. (I know it's the wrong way, but when I went to go look up instructions, and somebody *cough*dad*cough* had decided that instead of just a light haze, he was going to add more and then just spread it all out. So, what is the source of my high temps. Is it just AS5 curing?

probably bad mount.. reseat it and use the dot method instead

No way those temps are normal. Try reseating with minimal thermal compound, too much and it won't cool properly.

So just wiggle it around a bit? Or take it off and put it back on?

NO. The curing will drop temps maybe 10-15 degrees on a good day.

Your AS5 is either really old and expired, or you put way too much too little on.

Remount first

Use a pea size dot in the middle of the chip and press down with heat sink while mounting.

Buy Better TIM!

Good Luck.

Yeah, my dad put about 2 pea-sized dots on both the heatsink and the CPU...

Clean it all off and start over. And make sure all the push-pins are fully seated. It can be hard sometimes when the board is mounted in a case due to the way the board bends when applying pressure. You pop in 2 opposite-diagonal pins, and when you go to pop the other 2 in 1 of the other pins pops loose.

I like to remove the board when doing push-pin HS's to ensure the pins are all the way thru on the back side.

So I can't just clean it all off the heatsink and leave it on the CPU?

Clean it ENTIRELY off both the heatsink and cpu and reapply with a droplet and squash it down and make sure you mount it with equal pressure on both sides. 100 degrees will damage your chip - with my cruddy cooler i get a max of 75 at 5ghz.

If I've run it at 100C for about 25 mins will it do anything?
