I recently purchased a motherboard/cpu/memory upgrade for my rig. After hooking up my i7-2600k, I noticed some heat issues with my cpu.
Here's my info on the rig:
-corsair graphite 600t special edition white mid tower case
-intel i7-2600k processor & stock heatsink and thermal paste
-cpu is still at stock speeds
-asus P8Z68 deluxe/gen 3 motherboard.
-CPU temp sensor at idle - 26C
-at full load - 72C
- Mobo temp at load and idle - 30C
My cpu jumps to 72C within 10 seconds on a full load. If I overclocked it to about 4.4-4.6GHz, would a better thermal paste solve the issue or would a new heatsink be needed as well? I want to keep the rig air cooled. If a new heatsink would be needed, which one would you guys suggest for it?
