WTF @ my CPU temperatures.

To be fair, those are perfectly acceptable temps

For your voltage, it's pretty normal.

I have a 2500k @ 4.4 and 1.27v and get similar temps under load and prime 95.
My idle is about 7c lower.

so it doesn't seem like i'm that far out from norm ballpark. was going to try to re-seat the 212+ with new paste but i'll only do it if i have to... so.. i'm not going to do it.

Thermal paste also plays a factor as well, which did you use?

I have the Hyper T4 which is pretty much the same thing but slightly worse. These coolers are practically worthless in the summer. It probably doesn't help that it sits so loosely on the motherboard when most cooling fits so snug you feel like you're gonna snap your mobo in half.

Eh, I have the same gear (also at 4.5 Ghz) and right now it's idling at just under 40 (it's closer to 30 when the temperature outside isn't so warm!) and it gets up into the low 70's for demanding games. Highest I've seen it (prob while using Prime 95) was in the mid 80's.

I'm not worried, it is over 2 years old now and I still haven't bothered to replace the thermal paste... though I may wanna do that soon, it's just such a hassle! Never had any issues with it, so I personally wouldn't worry.

In pretty much all cases I don't really give it a second thought unless I'm up over 90 degrees, or like 60+ idle.

don't understand. i thought the hyper 212+ was really good.

You thought wrong. It's garbage compared to high-end air solutions or the majority of CLCs. People recommend it because it's cheap and does well relative to what it costs.

I see dead people.

what are some better air coolers? i'll look into buying one later this year, along with some better RAM.
