Hello,I have an Intel E5200 running at stock cooler and stock Clocks[2.5 Ghz], and I am getting 70-75* C idle temps. I checked the temps with SpeedFan, RealTemp and Everest Ultimate Edition.
And it stays at that Temperature under load. I recently changed the thermal paste and it brought down temps by 2*. I used the Cooler Master HTK-002. I live in India, so the External environment temperature are about 30*C.
Ok. The Cooler Master one is something which i wont call top line.
Recheck your TIM, if possible remove it and reapply. Hope you didn't put in too much TIM on the CPU. Also recheck your heatsink fitting. If the heatsink is not properly seated on the CPU, your temps are bound to go up.
As an advice change the PSU to something like Corsair, Antec or Seasonic.
As i said, When i bought it at that time also it showed the same temps, I dont think there would be a mistake from Intel on TIM and Heatsink seating. Anyways I have checked the TIM, I read about how to apply on Dual-core processors on some site, it said a thin horizontal line in the middle on the IHS, I did so and i also rechecked the Heatsink and TIM.
Can there be a problem with my case cooling? cause even my VGA [biostar HD 5570 no OC] runs at 55* idle and 75* load.
Buy an aftermarket cooler.COOLER MASTER HYPER 212 PLUS for 1800.That would help.Sometime the base of the cooler is not flat.There could be some dents which is preventing proper heat transfer.Any air between heatsink and cpu would hinder the cooler's performance.
Thanks a lot, but I dnt think that heatsink will fit into my Case. Anyways thanks, probably i will buy a new case first.
