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.
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.
Ok I can do that about how long should I let it go for? tell temps stop going up?
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.
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.
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.
