i5 2500k BIOS Idle temp question.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I am new to overclock.net but after purchasing and building my first PC I have a couple questions to ask. I just finished my build last night and when I went into the bios I noticed that my core idle temp was at 40C. I don't know if this is pretty high or not. The cooler I have on my CPU is the Cooler Master 212+. Is this a regular temperature for a newly placed compound and cooler? Also my 212+ is ever so slightly oriented counter clockwise (not perfectly parallel with the board). I am kind of a perfectionist so I am wondering if that is going to effect my CPU temps at all.

Here is my Rig:

Case: Corsair Graphite Series 600T
PSU: Corsair TX850W
Motherboard: ASUS p8p67 (Rev 3.0)
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 6970
Cooler: Cooler Master 212+
CPU: Intel i5-2500k
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333

download HW monitor from CPUID and use the sensors off that program to determine the core temp. the idle temp in the bios is the socket temp.

40 degrees idle is fine i think.
