REPLY!212 evo temp question

hello...2 weeks ago i built my first budget gaming pc.the cpu is amd athlon x4 750k..when i was playing games with the stock cooler the temp was constantly 70C....so yesterday i decided to buy cooler master 212 evo...although i applied thermal paste correctly (card method,thin layer) i didnt see any big difference in my temps...in full load while stressing the cpu with intel burn test the cpu doesnt go above 65C.most times it stays constantly in 62-64C...while playing games the temp is again constantly at 63C not more...also the idle temp is 40C(just like the stock cooler)...some poeple have idle temp 35C or so with 212 evo....i am really disapointed...what's wrong?i installed the cooler so the fan faces the ram slots..i also have 1 80mm front intake fan and 1 120mm back exhaust fan...i expected my temps to be a little bit lower with this cooler...i feel like i have thrown 35 euros away...
P.S i am havent overclocked...

  1. your temps are perfectly normal.

    thanks...to me also they seem a little bit normal especially at 100% use the cpu doesnt go above 65C..so yeah..with the stock cooler while playing games the cpu was 70C+ XD
  3. Try multiple temperature monitoring programs. Make sure that you were are looking at definitely is your CPU Core temperatures. CoreTemp and AMD Overdrive (if you have a Radeon-based GPU) work for this in most cases.

    FM2-based chips tend to have some weird temperature readings, and it takes a lot of experimenting to find out what is what. On my A10-5800K, I have no less than four (4) different thermal readings!

    core temp and amd overdrive wont read my temp :/...i have radeon hd 7770 as a gpu...easy tune 6 which came with my motherboard said that my cpu temp is 20C WITH THE STOCK COOLER!...definitely wrong....i dont know which other program to try...i have tried them all...:/
  5. Was that temperature of Easy Tune 6 when it was at idle, or when at load?

    easy tune 6 shows some crazy temps...when i had the stock amd cooler in idle it said that my temp was 21C :p and when i was playing games it showed 40C...the same temps are shown again now with the 212 evo with this program...definetly wrong readings..both with stock cooler and 212 evo with this program..i mean with the stock cooler in idle my cpu cant be 21C!..its impossible!
  7. Unless the CPU Core temperatures are fed through a type of weight equation - which is true, by the way - and makes them display weird temperatures (usually below-ambient) when below a certain temperature level.

    21C isn't impossible for idle temperatures. It depends on your own ambient temperatures.

    Open up all your various programs, and take a screen shot of at idle and load. Be sure to use Prime95 for about 15 minutes for the load.

    ok i have runned the test for about 15 minutes and this is the temps that i always get.(blue in easy tune 6) i think easy tune 6 is definetly reading my temps wrong..http://s15.postimg.org/gzts42jbv/Capture.jpg...the temp at idle is 40C according to hw monitor and 21C according to easy tune 6

    reply please....
  10. yep probably. try downloading core temp and speedfan. they both are good reliable software for monitoring temps.

    i have downloaded them but they wont read my temp.
  12. @aggelos123 wont read your temp? you sure?

    yes they wont read my temp.....
  14. ok how about speccy?

    ok speccy shows the same temp with hw monitor...
  16. Screenie of when the computer is at idle?
