    Default CPU Temperature brain storming

    So, I've got an AMD 7850K and a Cooler Master 212 Hyper Evo for the cooler. For sake of discussion I'm running windows 7, since the sensors on my Gigabyte's sensors aren't supported by lm_sensors.

    Over the last few days I've reseated, wiped clean, reapplied the thermal paste (cheap dynex stuff I got a few years ago-- its what I had on hand, and the cooler master stock stuff they send with the cooler. Arctic Silver 5 is on order) and 'rinsed and repeated' probably... 6 times? When I first built this computer a couple months ago I was idling at around 34-35 at BIOS, now I'm idling at 45 and sitting at the windows 7 desktop has me going up to 59-60. Gaming? Temps hit 70+.

    Ambient temperature is 26 degrees. All the fans are on and working perfectly fine.

    The amount of thermal paste is somewhere between a 'grain of rice' and 'a pea,' and the CPU is NOT overclocked, though the ram is set to 2133. BIOS has been reset to 'optimized defaults.'

    Anyone got ideas? Its a brand new build and I'd rather not have something fry.

    The max temps for the APU's are a bit higher (72.4 for your model: http://products.amd.com/en-us/Deskto...il.aspx?id=100 )

    AS5 should help. What are you using to clean the old stuff?

    Also, double check voltage settings. I had an Asus board that put an extra 0.05V on top of the CPU's default voltage (stupid design).

    On the CPU I'm just wiping it clean with some tissues, on the Cooler ive been using a slightly damp cloth to wipe it clean and then following it up with a microfiber towel to dry it and get up any left overs.

    Vcore Voltage = ~1.308V
    DRRAM Voltae = ~1.656V (Ram is manufactured to run at 2133mhz)

    I will say that RIGHT NOW, BIOS is showing my CPU temp as being 41C-- so at least its doing a little better. The system temp is sitting at 32C . Its also cooler in the house now than when I made this thread... could this just be an issue of ambient temperature? When I put this together it was February or March, so early spring for me.

    I've always used rubbing alcohol (70% works, but 90 is preferred) and cotton balls...
