I haven't overclocked my CPU and I am running the stock fan that came with the I5 2500k. The computer was build halway throughout August so i doubt the stock fan/ Thermal pase has worn out? Could it be ?
Anyhow, Im looking forward to any suggestions you guys might have. Thanks allot for reading
First do me a favor and pick up HWMonitor and check your temperatures with it. I have generally seen the best temperature with it.
With the stock cooler I have seen a number of cases where someone cleans it and one of the twist clips were not locked down come out leading to poor cooling. So check to make sure they are well seated reach into the case and pull each of the twist clips on the stock cooler straight up. If you can pull it straight up the HSF (heatsink/fan) wasn't seated well and you are going to want to re-seat it. I would use some new thermal paste when I do.
Seems you were right, Thanks,two of the pins that go in weren't seated right, pulled of easily,while the top two were seated in firmly. This might of caused the over heating.
So after trying to reseat it, it seems that the plastic cover of the pins .. http://i.imgur.com/3VIMv.png are a bit bent, not that much but when i try to insert them into the holes, the plastic cover stays outside the hole and pushes into a 45 degree against the Mobo.
I guess it would be retarded to cut the plastic off as the black pins alone wont seat correctly?
If the money is really short right now. Here is what you can do. Start by pulling the twist clip back so the black part isn't seen. Then take a pair of needle noise pliers and pinch the outer part (white) of the twist clip so they can go through the board. Then push the twist clip down and lock in place.
