Hi all, I just built a new computer with an intel i5 2500k. Turned on the computer and everything was running well. Then I loaded speed fan and I saw that my CPU was idling at 55C?!?! This seems very hot to me. I am using the stock fan, but it does not seem like it should be idling this hot. Furthermore, my Core 0 temp is 56C at idle. Does it have to break in?
I checked it this morning and I failed to push the pins in far enough. Under full load with Prime95 I am at 45C is this a good temperature? My core0 is still pretty high at 62C.
Also, I do have a Coolermaster Hyper212. Installing it would mean disassembling everything because I need to put the support brackets behind the motherboard. Is it necessary to go through all this if I am getting the above temps or should the CPU be fine if I don't overclock.
