That temp seems high for idle. I have a AMD with an overclock and at idle I am at 32C. Did you build the PC yourself, if so what thermal paste did you use? You may have to reapply
Yes, I built it myself and used the paste that came with the Chip. The chassis is a Thermaltake Level 10 GT and will accept a Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme with no problem. This weekend will install the liquid cooling and change the paste. What is recommended ?
Also, during monitoring the temp I noticed the V-Core 1 & 2 are running at 41C at idle. This while the CPU shows 58C. No apps running.
What is the difference?
