I5/2500k idle temps

When i first got my i5/2500k,Asus P8/H67, i used the stock cooler, but the temps were up in the 40+c at idle, so i changed it and put the Freezer pro7 rev2 from my i5/760 Gigabyte UD2H/H55,
That has taken the temps down to around 38/39c.
But= when i first start up and enter the bios the temp is 27c and it just keeps going up an up till it hits 38c/39c idle.
SHORELY THIS IS NOT RIGHT, any idea's what i can do??, ive re-seated the cooler twice,
I am now thinking of a Corsair H5o-1 or Coolit water system. IM PULLING MY HAIR OUT......HELP !!! I am running an i5/2500k/Asus p8/h67m pro/ mushkin 60gb ssd/ 4gb 2x2gb corsair 1600mhz/ frezer pro 7 rev.2/ 2 samsung writemaster DVD/RW / WIN7 Ultimate 64Bit

What is it reading in Windows? It will run warmer in the bios, does not sound like a problem. If you are not overclocking, the stock processor cooler is fine

I am concerned because my i5/760 with a stock cooler runs at 29c idle (in the Bios) with S,I,W, core 0 is 27c,/ core 1 is 30c,/ core 2 is 28c,/ core 3 is 28c. core temp 29c that is my i5/760 on a Gigabyte UD2H,
BUT my i5/2500k is at least 10c over that "with the Freezer pro 7", with stock cooler it is 15/16c above,
The bios reads 38/39c jumps to 41c now an again, all the time doing no work at all.
S.I.W. core 0=40c,/ core 1=41c,/ core 2=39c,/ core 3=40c. core temp 40c
If i use ASUS PROBE 11 as a guide it tells me that the Processor is 27c,/ and the motherboard is 25c,, (thats rubbish monitoring).
I just need to know why the heat is so much more than the i5/760 i am taking into account that the i5/760 is 45nm and the i5/2500k is 32nm, but it should NOT make 10c=16c difference. "SHOULD IT"!!... I DONT THINK SO, 5 or 6C, maybe.

I highly doubt your stock cooler ran 29C in the BIOS. My Hyper 212+ gets to 44C in the BIOS (granted I have an OC). BIOS temp is not idle as the processor is under significant load in the BIOS. Focus on what your temps are in Windows using Real Temp or HWMonitor. For example, my BIOS temp is 44C but my idle temp in HWMonitor is 24-28C....

My i5 2500k goes up to 80c in the Bios with the stock cooler in an Antec Nine Hundred.

80c in the bios is too hot....

High temps in the BIOS are normal. I repeat ... high temps in the BIOS are normal.

This is especially true with the stock cooler, but even with a good cooler the temps in the BIOS will be higher than Windows temps.

Why?

The CPU cannot enter low-power idle mode while in the BIOS. It can only engage that mode while fully booted into Windows.

Edit: You shouldn't see danger-zone temps like 80ºC though. Maybe as high as 50-60ºC.

Thanks for all your comments guys.
The reason my i5/760 runs so cool is the side is off of it, (it has a pair of mothers tights over the side to stop any crap getting in) (stops 99% of dust BRILLIANT)
We live in a cornish stone built house so you could say the FANS are pulling in STONE COLD AIR, and our walls are cold, (believe) there not damp just real cold, (anyone living in a stone or granite built home will know what i mean.
I am going to try the same senario on my i5/2500k that is upstairs, and hope that brings temps down a bit.
Core Temp = is reading the i5/760 as 30c /31c /29c /30c, and i have six pages open, this page, Ebay etc etc oh an skype..
If i can get my i5/2500k down to around 34c /35c without having the tans going full all the time "THEN I WILL BE HAPPY"
Cheers Guys..............
