Okay I need an answer about these computer stuffs. My the core temp of my CPU indicates that it reaches 90 degrees C already. Well it is really hot i dont know what to do i cleaned up my pc and even reapply some thermal paste into it. It is not like this before. I got 3 fans on the side of my pc case (front, side, back) and i got a stockfan in my processor. But still got high numbers. It is not like this before usually before it only plays at 35-40 degrees C. I dont know what to do know my core temp application pops up every time that it says it is critical already, there are lots of stuffs coming into my mind can also this be a virus attack? lol . Please advice!

Specs is:
Intel i5 2500-K
NVDIA 560-ti
8gb ram
1TB HD
OS win 7

Not likely it's a virus. How did you measure the temp?
Did it overheat before you did maintenance and added thermal compound?

You left out the spec of your CPU cooler and the speed your CPU is running at.

i got an application called Core Temp it sky rocketed to 90 degrees and its pop upping warning that core 0 1 2 and 3 is critical when i first bought this computer it is running at 40-50 degrees now at this moment 75 degrees C. Is it normal now that i get 75? I just reapply thermal paste to see if anything happens but at this moment its still at 90 then i reboot now its 75 again.

how much thermal paste did you use? are all of the legs of the cooler fully fitted, i.e. no movement in them?

I'm thinking 13thmonkey is right.

You might have a problem with your CPU cooler fitting correctly and staying on tight.

Do you think it might cost the problem? But i got it fixed with a technician already. Hes the one who put the thermal paste. Is 75 degrees C normal to Intel? Because i see the CPU temp of my technician and its 77 degrees C

That's not right. That's just slightly above a idle workload.

Still looking at problem with the cooler installation as the problem.

@Recon - Can you tell me how can i post a screen shot in this forum?

@WR2 - I am planning to buy a Corsair Liquid Cooler will this help me a lot?

the liquid cooler will help, but only because it will be a refitted cooler, the stock cooler is fine at stock speeds.

Have you checked the pins holding the cooler in place?

My technician is the one who put it in place. So I bet he really put it alright. So if i fit a liquid cooler which is a hell of a expensive do you think the temp will play at 40 degrees C?

If the 'correctly fitted' stock cooler can't keep it cool at near idle loads a water cooler probably won't either.

Have you checked the cooler to make sure it's tight?
Shut it down and let it cool down and give it the 'wiggle test'.
Can you make the cooler wiggle on socket with just a small amount of effort?

WR2 - Ill check it if it is really tight tomorrow. Gonna reapply some thermal paste too just a little bit. So what if it is not still effective? Also do 75C is normal or what?

Don't do anything just yet. Do one thing at time and them report.
Check the cooler for a tight fit.

Also - temp testing with your computer disconnected from the internet. Let it sit doing nothing for 10 min. Then check the temp.

You can do another temp test - try one in Safe Mode.
Again with the computer disconnected from the internet.
When you turn the power on, tap on the F8 key till you see the Advanced Boot Menu
Choose Safe Mode. Once it loads Windows in Safe Mode let it run for 10 min doing nothing.
Find Core Temp and check the temps

Would checking the temp in Bios be worth it? I would think that they might be getting a bad read from the program they are using.
Just a thought

I've not known a single tecnhnician who has mucked up (or failed to do) an install. /sarcasm.

what are you intending to do with the thermal paste?

Also stupid question, is the fan spinning?

Checking temps in BIOS is a very good idea. It's usually the most dependable for accuracy.

Put your hand on the cpu cooler while being carefull of the fan... if it's doing its job it will be burning hot at 70+c..

If it's cool to the touch, it aint installed properly... basic cpu cooler validation..

Still betting on the facvt that it aint installed correctly

The intel stock cooler is about adequate, a cheap replacement like an arctic freezer pro might show some improvement at very little cost.

This is the temperature of my CPU i used two applications to run my temp.





As you can see on the right my Videocard is at 100C. LOL is this true? I just downloaded this application called speccy then i am shocked to see my V-Card temp. O_O is this accurate do you think?

Well the CPU heat is just almost the same as the other one on the left.

None of those temps are good. Like I said in the other thread, I think you may need to re-seat your CPU cooler, for sure. How hot is your room temp?

These are my temps (granted, with a 212 Evo on my CPU, but the GPU is nice and cool too). Disregard CPUTIN, as it's wrong on my mobo.

You need both better cooling for your cpu as well as an extra case fan or two to get some air moving around your video card.

hey guys just an update as I let my computer idle for about 20-30mins (doing nothing i just leave it for that long) this what shows up. What do you think might cause it?



Later ill recheck if my heatsink is properly in place.

the is no reason though why the stock can't keep it below 90C. if its installed properly and the fan is working.

I definitely tend to agree with abekl here on one thing. You need better case ventilation. Your mobo temp (which is basically ambient temp inside the case) is 41C. Way too warm. Take the side of the case off to see what happens.

Well your GPU temp seems to have settled, but you CPU temp is quite high for an idling system.

June 7, 2012 7:18:03 AM

So the main problem we are all guys seeing here is the Heatsink in the CPU right? Well the case ventilation is okay im sure. I got 3 fans one in front which i think the inward one then one on side and back which is ventilating outward.

Just a quick question do hot CPU affects game play? Because i experiencing laggyness on a game which is not reqs. demanding.

It can if it's throttling (around 98C core temp).

Seriously though, it's too hot in your case. 41C is 106F, so that's pretty damn warm for ambient case temp. My case temp ranges in the low to mid 20's C, for comparison.

If those temps are at idle (I'm guessing this is the case after 30 mins) then the CPU is likely throttling under load as said above.

What's the inside of your case like? Just having 3 fans doesn't mean that case flow is OK...if it's like a bird's nest in there, you need to tidy it. Also reseat the CPU cooler and reapply the thermal paste...just to be sure. Are you using the Intel stock cooler? 'Cos they're a bit rubbish and quite easy to seat incorrectly without realising.
