I5 2500K Temps?

I have just gotten the i5 2500K a few days ago and I got the COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus and arctic Silver 5.

I am in a dorm room so it is fairly hot in the room but I feel as tho my temps on the CPU are a little High.
I have put cooler on about 5 times now doing the line method and also dot but this is the first time me ever putting a aftermarket cooler on.

These are my Temps: http://i1077.photobucket.com/albums/w463/jtwire2012/1d955363.jpg

My case is as follows: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112154

Looking for the green light or do I need to take off cooler and re apply paste yet again or is there a guide that can show me step by step also is there a order in witch you screw the screws in? would like a guide or even a good video would be awesome.

The CPU is at stock currently but I would like to O.C. to 4.0GHz in a few weeks once I know my temps are ok.

  1. Your temperatures are fine. I would like to see where you are under load since this is the real important number. Otherwise looks good.
  2. Yeah, those temps are just fine. As Christian alluded to though, idle temps don't really matter anyway. Load temps are what you should focus on.
  3. those are pretty great temps, is that idle or under load.

    Has to be idle. Look at the wattage (~9W).
  5. This is after I just got done playing Guild Wars 2 for about a hour on max settings. The temps where just going down because I excited the program.

    As for the other picture that was idle

  6. Ok I can do that about how long should I let it go for? tell temps stop going up?
  7. Again, no problem there. A full 100% load stress test reading would be preferable here (using a program like Prime 95, Small FFT's test). That will tell us if there really is a problem or not.

    10 minutes is fine for a good temp check. If there's a problem, it'll show up in the first minute, really. We're looking for temps below 72, but with the 212+ at stock, mid to upper 50's (to possibly lower 60's) is what you should be seeing.
  9. core temps are only 1 or 2 degrees difference. I wouldn't worry about it. Play and enjoy! Temps look perfectly normal
  10. Just wondering if the cores being so different in temp is a bad thing?
  11. Those temps are perfect, honestly. Very good.

    And different temps between the cores is absolutely normal. In fact, my 2500K is a lot like yours, actually. The first core is cooler than the others and the third core is the warmest. Nothing to worry about, though. Perfectly normal.
  12. Now this is all at stock Temps would i probably be safe to move up to 4.0GHz and watch temps again?

    Also can someone point me in the direction of a over clocking guide for a ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Mobo

    I can't figure out how to turn off boost and just run a solid clock speed and also is there a way to turn off the GPU in the CPU
  13. Yeah, with those temps, you're all set to to OC, but I honestly don't know of any guides specific to the Z77 Extreme4.

    No real need to disable Turbo, though. With all cores at the same multi, Turbo is effectively disabled anyway.
  14. These are my Temps at 4.0GHz my voltage is on auto should i turn it to manual and set my voltage lower to reduce heat?

    I would. Those are my temps at 4.5 (mine are a little cooler, actually with my 212 Evo in push/pull, but still). I use offsets, instead of a manual static voltage, though (mainly because I have to with my board, but I'd do it anyway, to let the voltage drop at idle).

    Offsets are harder to figure out, but it's worth it in the long run.
  16. Mine is averaging 32 degrees Celsius.

    Stock Intel Cooler.
    Room temp is about 19 degrees Celsius.
    CPU is not yet overclocked.

    Your room temperature must be pretty bad if those are your idle temperatures while you're using an aftermarket cooler like that.
  17. Which way is better I only have 1 fan so

    1. Push as i have it right now or
    2. Pull

    Push. Pull is only slightly worse (like 1 or 2C), but push is better. Push/pull is only about 3-5C better than push, though, just for comparison.
