2700k+hyper 212 plus=high temp?

Hello,

I'm getting really high temperature with overclocked 2700k and hyper 212 plus. I ran some testing with Prime 95 and got the following result:

4.5Ghz @ 1.34v = 75C after an hour
4.8Ghz @ 1.38v = 85C and up after 30 minutes so I stopped the test.

Idle temperature is about 40C. I'm not sure why core 0(according to hwmonitor) is always 7-9 C lower than the rest. I suspect something wrong with hyper 212 plus maybe thermal contact because I might've used too much thermal paste on the CPU, and I spread it a little with a cotton stick before mounting the heat sink, which probably wasn't the best idea. I'm really worried cuz others have much better result with the same setup. Should I redo my thermal paste or something?

my setup:
p8z68-v pro
2700k
hyper 212 plus
8gb ram 1600mhz
vertex3 120gb ssd
1000TB hhd 7200rpm
gtx570 2.5gb sli
1000w psu
windows 7 64 bit

yes redo it.

you should have looked up how to apply thermal paste before installing because the cotton probably got into the paste and burnt out and now you have bad contact with the cpu.

The 4.5ghz test is still running and I'm baffled that the temperature is dropping to 68C average... hmmm...

I'm also monitoring the temperature with 3 different software - hwmonitor, realtemp, asus ai suite II. hwmonitor and realtemp come really close, but asus ai suite is about 10C lower(so right now it's 58C after 2 hours of stress testing).

I've decided to reapply thermal paste seeing the idle temp is above 40C. Need some advice here:

1, should I buy new thermal paste or keep using the one that came with hyper 212 plus?
2, is it possible to reapply thermal paste without taking out the motherboard? so it's not too much hassle.

you don't need to take out the mb to apply thermal paste, you just need to apply to the cpu a pee sized drop and use a plastic bag to spread it, then place the cooler on top.

buying new paste will help a little if you are looking for the best. 40 idle isn't too bad.

1 cm paste with 212 is good
2 depending on your case most companies do not require you to do


Questions: What is your case? Where do you live? Is it hot where you live? Can you spend 5-10dollars for a fan for a hyper 212 push pull?

yeah I applied like 3-4 stripes in all directions... >.<
I have a typical 50 dollar cooler master case( cuz i perfer investing money elsewhere).
I live in Canada. It's -20C outside and id say about 10-20C in my room.
You mean adding another fan on the heatsink? I can afford it but I think it will make a mess since it's already pretty compact. I have 2 gtx 570s, and I don't have much room left lol.

Which exact 50 dollar cm case?

i don't know its model name anymore since it's the only thing I have left that's not replaced by something else in the past 5 years. It's still in good condition though.

You should also get fans on the side for exhaust, because i am sure your 570's are overheating.
