I just finished putting together my first computer last night. Never done it before, and when I started up for the first time and went into bios the bios is showing my CPU temperatures starting at 45 degrees and climbing up to about 50 degrees. This is in bios!
I am worried that these temperatures are not acceptable as when the processor is in BIOS it should be idling right? I have not done any overclocking yet!
Case - Coolermaster storm sniper (All stock fans)
Motherboard - Asus p7p55d-e pro
CPU - Intel core i5-760 (Stock cooler)
Memory - 4gb 1600mhz
Graphics card - evga gtx 470 SC
PSU - 750w corsair
hard drive - 64gb SSD crucial
Any help would be appreciated.
I already took the stock heat sink off and I tried putting thermal past on again after cleaning, maybe i'm doing that wrong?
The air inside the case feels very very cold with all the case fans running?
Well I installed 64 bit windows reset my bios settings and it switched everything to "auto" and power step on all that now my CPU Is idling as low as 33 and occasionally hitting 60 under load.
I also switched storage configuration to ahci cause I was told this was faster for ssd? Except in 32 bit my windows experience was at a 7.8 now it's at 7.4 for hard drive?
I noticed using asus's probe that my vcore goes up and down almost directly related to temperature so is there any negative reason not do this since I won't over clock until I get my after market cooler anyway?
Another thing: the memory is only operating at 1333 even though it's 1600 now. Thanks for all the help!
