i7 2600k idle temps very high!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
I just got myself an i7 2600k with Asus p8p67 deluxe. After installing, i was surprised to find that Windows idle temps were 55c average! it went up to 67c while installing a software.
This is not the 1st time i assemble a pc and i even reseated the stock fan 3 times and applying Thermaltak TG-1 thermal grease, nothing changes. (used isopropyl alcohol to clean).
MoBo temp = 25c.


I am waiting on an aftermarket cpu cooler to be dilevered but, i am worried that my CPU or MoBo is faulty. Any suggestions?

System:
- i7 2600k stock speed.
- Mobo Asus P8P67 Deluxe.
- 4 (2x2GB) corsair DDR3 dominators.
- PSU Thermaltak taughpower 1200wt
- EVGA 480 + EVGA 285(Physx)
- 4x WD HDD.
- 7 fans inside case.

You should check what kind of temps you are getting in the BIOS.

What voltage is it running at?

What are your ambient temps?

Are you sure all 4 pins are correctly pushed through the board? Even if one isn't in place it won't sit flush across the chip and you'll get really bad themps.

Thermal paste probably didn't spread evenly.

I gave up, tried everything. Changed motherboard to another asus P8P67 Deluxe, temps = 35 idle.

For a second i thought all these years i was mounting the heatsink incorrectly

I have found with stock coolers, the professional methods don't work, you have to break out a sandwich baggie, turn it inside out and spread it evenly then you'll be ok, as ok as stock cooling can be lol.
