I5-2500 Intel Boxed cooler temperature problem Tags: CPUs Cases Temperature Intel Last response: October 26, 2011 1:42 AM in CPUs Share rayzor1771 October 25, 2011 10:16:36 PM Hello, I've build a new PC today. But I think if got a problem with my CPU temperature. I'm using an Intel Core i5-2500, Boxed Intel cooler, ASRock H67M-GE/HT Mainboard, Lian Li Case with 3 120mm fans, 580W Be Quiet E9. I get about 45 degrees CPU temp in idle which CPU fan and case fans at max. Speed. (and 43 degreees with open case) The air out of the case fan is absolutely cold. Does anyone has an idea why my temp is that high? When I try to make the system quite silent, I get about 55 degrees in idle. Thank for your help in advance.
