High CPU temperature in BIOS [ ASUS P8P67 Deluxe ]


I am in the process of building a new system and have all the components more or less in place. The first time I booted up and went into the BIOS, it was showing me a cpu temperature of 60 degrees celsius, which seems unusually high in this context. I was wondering if anyone could provide any insight into this issue? I'm using the stock fan that came with the cpu, parts are listed below:

- ASUS P8P67 Deluxe
- Intel Core i7 2600, Sandy Bridge
- 2 x 2GB DDR3 RAM, G.Skill
- Antec P180 Case
- Corsair Enthusiast PSU TX650 V2

  1. Thank you, I will give that a try tonight. I don't know if it's a bad idea, but I didn't use any thermal paste. I just popped on the fan as per the instruction book that came with the cpu.
  2. Haha, I did notice the thermal paste on the stock fan; I wasn't sure if buying/applying extra from one of those tubes you can buy was necessary, but I guess its fine without. Thanks again!
  3. It should be noted: A few people here have noticed high temps reported in several P67 boards using UEFI, so it could also be a bad reading...
