I recently bought a hyper 212 evo to replace my stock cooler on my stock I used to get temperature readings from 21 degrees celcius to 28 degrees celcius. When I install hyper 212 evo I got readings from 25 degrees celcius to 36 degrees celcius why is this happening it is still the same usage of the cpu at idle the temp on my stock cooler was 20 to 21 degrees celcius and idle for hyper 212 evo is 25 degrees celcius why is this happening please help. I have also got the push pull configuration on the hyper 212 evo but still. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!

Too much thermal paste.
You only need to apply a very thin layer of thermal paste on the cpu heat spreader. if its too thick it will act as an insulator.

OP, you should use more than once sentence per paragraph, makes it easier to read your post.

Actually, I think you were getting bogus readings on your stock cooler, unless the ambient temp in your room is like 16C... It would help to know your cpu tho. Mine idles at 32C in a roughly 21C room and those are normal results for that cooler.

Idle temperatures are of little concern. Load temperatures are most important. Please run Real Temp and Prime95 Small FFT's for 10 minutes. List your Core temperatures, Ambient temperature and the specifications of your rig.

My cpu is fx 4300 (AMD) and I think i did put too much thermal paste but does that really matter it sort of flows over the sides of the cpu
