80 degree +

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I just bought a new motherboard to replace my recalled one. Anyways, after getting everything setup, my CPU is running at 80 degrees stock. I'm using the stock fan atm. What could my issues be?

That's it there

Are you overclocked at all?

Intel's heatsinks come with cheap thermal paste pads. They don't work well. I'd get a new cooler

That's really bad for your CPU. Fortunately, I had the same exact problem.

I was 100% sure I installed my CPU cooler correctly and applied enough paste, but I got 80 degree temps. I just removed the cooler, cleaned off the TIM and reapplied it the exact same way and now I am getting 45 degrees on load. I have no idea why it worked the second time since I used the exact same amount of TIM and the same cooler.

Try it and let me know how it goes!

But really, get a new cooler as the guy above said. I got the Hyper 212+ and I got some Arctic Silver 5 TIM and my load temp dropped from 58 on load to 45 on load and from 40 on idle to 27-29 on idle. Previously I had a stock cooler and stock paste.

This is the third third motherboard change, so the thermal paste could be wearing. But, still... at stock settings... this shouldn't be THAT high.

Try cleaning off the existing thermal paste and applying more

How do I remove the paste? I planned on getting a new cooler, but I was going to wait for my store credit to be credited to me first. Is there any temporary solutions for me?

Remove it with rubbing alcohol

Use rubbing alcohol and cotton swabs to clean off the current TIM. Do you have any additional TIM laying around? If not then go to your closest computer hardware store and pick some up. Even Best Buy sells Arctic Silver now.

As for temporary solutions, not really unless you want to undervolt, take off your side panel, and point a desk fan at your cpu

Even one of the cheapest aftermarket coolers will be better than stock.

Use 90% (70% works too) Isopropyl alchohol from Walmart (costs like a dollar) and coffee filters (since they are lint free) to remove the TIM. I highly recommend the AS5 TIM, it is extremely efficient.
