2500k temperatures?

I have a gigabyte ga-z77x-ud5h motherboard and an arctic cooling freezer 7 pro rev.2 cooler with Arctic Silver 5 thermal compound.

My idle temps are around ~35 and my load temps(prime 95) are ~65 no overclock and using realtemp to measure the temperatures. Everywhere i look that seems to be kinda high for the 2500k with an aftermarket cooler and i still wanted to overclock it. Also my cores all the have the same temperatures at idle but under full load the 1st cores it about 3-4 degrees under my other 3 cores so the temps where 62 65 66 65 for example.

Should i reapply the heatsink and thermal compound?

  1. How thick was the thermal compound when you applied it?

    Also, what are the temps in the room that your pc is in?

    What kind of airflow do you have in your case (what case? how many fans? Which direction do your fans blow?)
  2. I put a good size dot in the middle and moved it around which i know is wrong i went totally brain dead. That mite be the problem right there maybe should of said that in my first post.

    my rooms temp is around 20c

    I know its a messy build but I"m not done with it and i probable should of gone a better case i just used my old one.
  3. The pic didn't come through.

    But I would suggest re-applying the thermal compound and making sure it is very thin.

    Those are fine temperatures.

    Fine yes, but at stock clocks and that low of a room temperature they should be better.

    Also, don't forget it can take up to a week or so for the compound to set in properly.
  6. I also think they are fine but whenever i look online most 2500k temps are under 65 even when overclocked

    Edit: I think you guys are right i mite just be overly concerned for no reason
  7. 200 hours to be exact ;)
