I just installed my sabertooth z77 and my i5 3570 is now showing a steady 34-35c just in bios, before it was 27 idle.. Did I really do something wrong?

Also my CPU stock fan is running under 1300, I swear on my old mobo it was a log higher, but I can't seem to raise it not matter what I do. Thank you in advance :)

What cooler do you use? Also, have you been doing activities in the BIOS like overclocking you dirty boy? :3

That is a little high but you are using a stock cooler and it is far from dangerous. I would get a good aftermarket cooler, a Hyper 212 would be fine. What type of case do you have? The Hyper 212 is pretty big and won't fit in all cases.

It's the stock intel cooler, I can over clock with my CPU, just how it booted up as. When ever I open speed fan (usually how I change my fan speeds. Ip the CPU fan starts at 30 where as on my other mobo is was 100 all the time

Phantom 410, but before I installed this mobo it never got over 27c, did I to the thermal paste wrong? I did the line method from the a s 5 :/

No no no no no no no no no no NO. It's usually a poor choice to control fans via programs in your OS - do it through the BIOS, or through manually overvolting it via adapters.
EDIT: With the thermal paste, you completely cleaned the stock cooler & processor of the original paste?

I've tried to do it in bios (I'm really new to it) and it won't let me change them

Are we talking about the CPU cooler or case fans in general? And how are they connected? 3 pin, 4 pin, etc?

Arctic sliver 5 and yes I even bought the cleaning kit. I used q tips and a paper towel. Not the best choices but I didn't have much to choose from. What rpm should a stock intel fan run at?

I think the stock fan varies between 900RPM to 3,000RPM, at least thats what I've read.

Yes you can overclock a "k" series with the stock cooler but it is not a good idea. Stock heatsinks are just good enough they can cool a CPU at stock settings but can't handle the extra heat generated from overclocking.

I would have to look it up I'm not sure if that case can fit a Hyper 212. Also is this a new case? What I mean is did you use this case with your old motherboard and setup?

Yup :)  I'm doing the bios flashback now, if that doesn't change anything should I redo my thermal paste?

O I thought you did have the unlocked version of the I5. Do you have a NZXT Phantom? If so I just looked it up and the Hyper 212 will fit s you can see from the picture below. I would try that and see if your temps are better.

Yes try that first and see if that helps. If not I would get a new CPU cooler.

Well I got to change the CPU fan temps, but apparently I did something wrong. It boots in too auto repair. I'm really done messing with it, I'll be going to geek squad in the morning for them to redo the thermal paste and fix the issue. It's all free for me, so why not? Haha

Bios updated correctly, or from what I could tell. I was able to change some things, but after setting the CPU fan to manual and then trying to keep it running at max ( which turns out to be 2198 rpm) it lowered the CPU to 35 instead of the 37 it was reading. Like I said I'm just gonna take it in.

Well I got the OS to boot haha, I really appreciate both of your help!! :) 


EDIT:

Testing my luck, I did a performance test, passed very well, then I booted up far cry 3 the temp jumped to 39c fast then dropped to 28c now it's sitting at 35c steady.. I there a sensor misreading or what?

Sorry for such the delay, I took my computer in, the OS wasn't re installing, had to get a fresh disc, but the temps asre still hovering at 32-35 at idle. I called asus support and they said it could be because i didn't reset the CMOS battery after updating BIOs, unfortunately the cmos battery its hidden behind the thermal armor and i have no clue how to take it off :/  ill just be getting a new cpu fan sooner or later
