I recently brought a new computer case for my PC. Since i brought a new computer, i thought i would replace the thermal compound off my CPU and Heatsink and fan. When i first booted it up it was on 22 degrees centigrade and now it is on 30 degrees and it is just idling.
My heatsink/cpu cooler fan is an Asus Axe Square
My CPU is an Intel i5 2500
30 idle is normal
use prime 95 to stress test the cpu and run core temp to check out your temps
idle is not as important as the load temps because your computer might be workign fine while in idle but it can give you issues while playing games
