Idle/Load CPU Temps Too High? (AMD Phenom II X6 1055T and Corsair H60)

Specs:
AMD Phenom II X6 1055T @ 2.8 GHz
Asus M4A89GTD PRO/USB3
Crucial 4GB DDR3-1333MHz @ 9-9-9-24
Sapphire Radeon HD 5770
OCZ Vertex 2 60GB
Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB
Antec EarthWatts 650W
Cooler Master Gladiator 600
Corsair H60

I am a little worried about my CPU running hot. It idles around 39-42C and under load (Intel Burn Test and Prime95) it reaches 55C, which seems a bit high for this cooler. Ambient temps are around 28-30C.

I tried reapplying thermal paste to the CPU (OCZ Freeze).

I made sure to tighten the CPU mount on the H60 enough.

I disabled the CPU Q-fan function on the motherboard so the pump is always at 100%

Both case fans are configured to run at 100% speed with SpeedFan.

I am not sure if these temps are appropriate. Or I might even be paranoid about it. But are these temperatures fine? If not, then what could be the issue?

55c is a good temperature with those ambient temperatures

I agree at stock clocks i dont think u should be getting near 55c as 60c is around its max temp. My overclocked 1055t hits 45c under 100% load with the fan all the way up and idles about 28c. For me my ambient temps are prob slightly lower as im in a basement. Is it the first or second gen H60? White or black stock fan?

I have the one with the square CPU block and black stock fan, not sure which gen.

There is no problem these are normal temps of a 1055t in 28-30c beacause h60 is just a entry level cooler
Coolers like h212 evo beats h60
So need not to wrry untill u reach 60c

black is the first gen one, id say the second gen with the white is better but thay maybe just the same as they look the same lol.

To see if u can fix temps u can add another fan in push pull to the radiator, or reapply thermalpaste and make sure case airflow is good. Ur temps are not bad but there prob slightly higher than what stock temps should be. If u feel okay doing it id attempt to undervolt the cpu as it will lower temps.

I overclocked my friends x4 by 200mhz and temps were near 55c, undervolted from the auto which went to 1.425 under load to always 1.35 and temps lowered 10c, just go in small increments going down and not up id say somewhere near 1.3 will be good, my OC cpus sits at 1.35-1.4 so might even be lower, see if ur voltages are high under load and go from there

UPDATE:

So I tried swapping the H60 with the stock cooler. Virtually the same temps (39-42 idle/55C load) in Intel Burn Test. While the stock fan is substantially louder (not an issue to me), I have a feeling the H60 is defective. I bought it 2 years ago from Best Buy. Can I still RMA?

If u could it'd be through Corsair, and ull prob end up paying for the whole thing, and the temps from the stock cooler sound about right my bro in law gets that with his 8150. I wouldnt say defective since the H60 is one of the cheaper closed loop coolers they make, but should obviously cool better than the stock cooler. U sure u had enough paste between the cpu and the waterblock, and no airbubbles/pockets and the waterblock was evenly tightened down?

Also did u try to undervolt the cpu? The boards auto feature to be safe will up voltages near its max which produces heat.

H60 is simply non effective

Yes. I made sure to tighten down the screws on the waterblock. There were no bubbles and an even coat on the CPU. I reapplied thermal paste using the rice method. My motherboard does not allow me to reduce the voltage on the CPU, and AMD Overdrive is somewhat flaky. But there is obviously a problem if my stock fan at 60% can cool at the same level as the H60 both when the CPU is idle and at full load.

just reconnect ur cpu block but this time first remove the applied thermal paste and then reapply it

Exactly what I did the last time. No effect.
