New CPU Cooler - Higher CPU Temps !?!?!

I recently purchased a Cooler Master Hyper TX3 for my ASUS M51AC-B07. The TX3 has bigger fans (2x) so it seems to me it should cool better. The new cooler is indeed more quite, however, I am now getting CPU temp readings of about 39/40 degrees. This is compared to the 30-32 degrees celsius I was getting with the noisy stock cooler. Any help or suggestions on what is wrong or what I could do would be greatly appreciated.

    Re-seat the tower and re-apply the thermal compound. Don't overdo on the thermal compound!
  2. I suggest you make sure the fans are blowing the air out the back or out the top. Check the arrows on the fans for flow direction.

    I personally think you should flow out the back because the cooler will suck up the heat off your GPU if you have the flow going up.
  3. +1 to Xiembeest and barto. Re-seat the cooler, redo the pasting, check the airflow must be front to back.
    Really check the fan directions - the fans must work in the same direction not one against the other. This will be major mistake, but this things happen.
    I have a TX3 Evo and my cpu stays firmly below 30 at idle.

    I want and expect sub-30 temps so I will be going home and trying all solutions mentioned. I will post the result as soon as I finish and test.

    Thanks
  5. OK, so I left the plastic strip on the cpu cooler metal contact plate. Took that off and re-seated cooler. Now Im running 31 degrees steady - which is only about a degree or 2 better than stock. Thanks again you guys
