Windows 7: e8200 overheating

e8200 overheating

I looked around and it said that the max temp that this processor should run at is about 62 degrees centigrade. When my cpu is under stress it hits that 62 easily. It idles at high 40's around 47-50. I just cleaned the entire thing and went and replaced the coolant grease stuff and it barely made a difference.

Welcome to SevenForums Are you using the stock heatsink and fan?

I usually have a problem keeping intel processors cool, and I am of the opinion that the stock heatsinks are no good, especially on older models. Your temps look OK at idle, but if you want them cooler, I would suggest an aftermarket cooler. How are you applying the thermal paste?

I apply it to the Processor itself and lay the heat sink on top of it

Enough to cover the whole surface. It says on it Ceramique by artic silver. If you see that i used about half of it maybe a little less.

About a medium grain rice sized dot is all you need. Too much or too little and temperatures will go up. Ceramique is a good one, it's what I use, and I run about 23 C on an average day (AMD Athlon II X3).

Try cleaning both the heatsink and processor with a lint-free item, such as a cotton ball or cotton square, and try applying the described amount of paste, and then push the heatsink down, twisting very lightly to get a good seat, and secure the whole schebang. If your temperatures are still high, I would consider an aftermarket cooler

You are welcome I think using the right amount of paste might make you happy with your temps, but I always like to strive for low low temps.
