It was a screen shot of my OC actualy not my temps :p lol you need to relax man youre gonna hurt yourself if you keep stressing.

and

A: i told him to reseat the cooler/apply new thermal paste
B: even in my own bios it always shows low idle temps.
C: see above
I will apply new thermal paste as soon as it gets delivered. But when I clean the old thermal paste, can I just use a tissue to clean it? Processors are very delicate that's why I am asking this.

Out of interest what is the temperature reported in windows using realtemp or coretemp?
I ask this because I have had the bios reading temperatures wrong before. Perhaps on your motherboard the bios is incorrect.
All cores reported by realtemp and the other program suggested states that all 4 cores are idling around 25 celcius at windows without any programs running. At max it states that all 4 cores will be around 30 celcius.

Its best to use some rubbing alcohol if you have any.

otherwise Artic Cooling do a cheap thermal grease cleaning set called 'arcticlean' that can be bought for very cheap that will clean both the heatsink and the CPU. all you need to do is make sure you have some cotton buds

ok, well thanks. If this doesn't solve the issue with the bios screen temperature reporting, I will just return it and put back the stock cooler. But let's see if the stupid pins will be able to lock in again. I will post back tell the results. Wont be until next week as I have lots of schoolwork but will definitely post back once I finish.
Reason for not keeping the CPU cooler if it doesn't solve the bios temp. problem: This is not my build it is just for someone else. So I just want to make sure everything temperature, and all the other minor issues are in stable condition when I give it to him.

Oh so simple answer....one of his pins is dodgy = he needs a new cooler.
Even if the temps are higher in BIOS... he need a new cooler, even if he didn't apply TIM correctly...he need a new cooler, even if he is blowing hot air from a hairdryer to get his temps up......you guessed it ...he needs a new cooler.

He could make do with the cooler and kinda get it sitting right for better temps....but he still needs a new cooler

(my temps in BIOS are never higher, always the same as on desktop idle, not saying it doesn't happen just saying none of the computers I am currently running read higher in BIOS)

Oh and freedom....."read it and weep bitches" wasn't the most helpful post I have seen.

if it was for my self id replace the cooler but as long as he gets that one pin to click properly it should be fine I would use some quality thermal paste tho either some MX4 or cool-chill diamond

How do you see CPU temp in windows? I thought you could only see it in the Bios?

When I look at CPU temp in bios in my other rig, it idles around 35 celcius.
CPUID Hardware Monitor is pretty good, it also has temp readings for other components and voltages etc. But I would seriously through away the stock cooler and buy an aftermarket cooler.

I will take into consideration all of the suggestions. The problem with most aftermarket CPU cooler that are good are also quite huge. Not saying that the HAF 922 won't be able to fit it, but I just claustrophobic when I see so much shit (already so many sata cables and those stupid long power led, hdd led, and reset switches, that just make wiring such a hassle for me). The problem isn't I guess money, but just that looking at so many things happening in the rig. What a waste of the stock cooler. They should really make sure all the fan coolers are properly functioning. Sadly enough I guess even intel can't promise this.

I already downloaded RealTemp and another program both stating that all 4 cores are idling at 25 celcius.

NP, but I will still get that huge heat cooler to see if it will actually lower the temp in bios stage. If it does, and I don't get that claustrophobic and it is not that huge, I guess I will keep it and make my friend pay for it.

The Hyper 212+ is big only when you add a 2nd fan to it.

For me, anything bigger than the stock intel coolers I would consider big. But that's just me because I have never needed to get an aftermarket cooler. I'm pretty sure my friend won't mind-:banghead:because he knows nothing about computer, anything bigger means better:banghead:-but for me, the one building it for him and worrying about everything:cry:, I care how big the cpu cooler is. But we'll see once I get the CPU cooler.

What do you believe a big CPU cooler going to do which will cause problems?

I have had a Tuniq Tower 120 LFB which I consider big and have had no issues with my system due to it's weight.

I installed an AC Twin Turbo on a reference HD4850 and all I have experienced is a much much cooler GPU.

Although, the RAM and VRM heatsinks NEEDED better thermal adhesive eventually.

Doesn't BIOS put the CPU under some load which can cause the temperature increase while being viewed in BIOS?
Was really surprised it took 13 posts to get this


OK Guys, Really thanks for all the suggestion and help. Really appreciated. Well anyways just woke up to a good day (not really when I checked the temp in bios it was still idling at 50 degrees celcius), but after installing realtemp and openhardwaremonitor. The temperature for all for cores are ilding around 25 degrees celcius having nothing running and max is round 30 degrees celcius. I guess the stupid motherboard temperature sensor is busted. Should I return it? Is it a major problem? All cores are at 1596mhz. I guess that is all right, right? Well really thanks. I was worry about nothing thanks to the stupid motherboard's bad sensor.

Side note: I really think the cpu cooler's pins are busted or maybe one of them. I could lock them but just not at the lock position. It fits sturdy after I tingled with the fourth pin but it is not in lock position. However I pulled it with some force and it won't come out.


Thanks alot.

because you problem have intermittent contact or because the cores are throttled down
because the machine is idle
:shadedshu

if all the pins are not locked properly then thats your issue
:shadedshu

I thought it was common knowledge that BIOS idles much higher than windows. lol noobs. Your temps are fine man, you dont need to change anything.

I will apply new thermal paste as soon as it gets delivered. But when I clean the old thermal paste, can I just use a tissue to clean it? Processors are very delicate that's why I am asking this.
Coffee Filters are the best, cheapest "lint free" cloth you can get. Best thing for cleaning off Thermal Paste.

My i5 2500k temps are around 34 degrees Celsius in bios and are in the mid to high 20's idle in windows. All with stock cooler which was a pain to get seated and i am about to see what it's like with some UDK open.
