Re: High i5 2500 temperatures?

The case I bought a long time ago and can't seem to figure out what it is. Its a smaller mid tower case known as Thermaltake Black edition V1 (from what I remember), a cheap case that was about 40$ cdn. I've been tinkering with this setup for last few days after work (been working a lot) so common s...

Re: High i5 2500 temperatures?

The reason why I placed it in an improper way was because the intel board i'm using (for some reason), has the ram slots directly beside the CPU.

High i5 2500 temperatures?

I've done a little searching and haven't found much on this problem. I have an i5 2500 and have been using an ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 aftermarket cpu cooler. I've applied Artic Silver 5 (proper amount, only enough to make contact). I have applied thermal paste quite a few times and its wo...
