I7 920 idling at 50C?! Tags: CPUs Thermal Compound Intel i7 Last response: December 10, 2010 5:56 AM in CPUs Share mrblurr December 9, 2010 11:06:20 PM Why is it doing this? I put the correct amount of thermal compound on it, I have a Freezer Pro Rev. 2 fan/heatsink and it's still just idling in windows with a Realtemp reading on 52 degrees. Any ideas on how to solve this? Should I retry thermal compound?

You can try using Prime95 to stress your CPU. What is your ambient (room) temp? What is your case? normal ATX? mini/micro ATX?
