    New CPU!heat?

    I just installed a 2500 barton on a A7n8X-E D with a aftermarket heat sink/fan/copper base and a dab of artic 5. I've haven't tasked the CPU much, cause awaiting for a floppy. Anyway, Is it normal for the CPU to run at 40-45'c at the core. The fan at full speed max2500 RPM. Is their a breaking in period for the compound to sink in? The case temp is around 70-72'F.

    Before proceed to install software and stuff I wanna make sure hardware is good to go for this new rig.

    Searched other threads and details were different from mine so I hope this is not a repeated question.

    The unit is a TR2T4002D and is a off brand of thermtake with a 80mmfan/copper base.


    Temp is 44C with just setting in the bios. Thats idle right?

    Hi Camacho111,
    generally the Bios temp is referred @full load, or really close to it, even if in Winzoz I've got always an higher temp of just 2-3 degree C.

    That temp wont hurt anything but it is kinda on the high side of where it should be. Sounds like you need better air flow in the case or that HS is a piece of crap. My 2500 runs at 33C at a case temp of 24C with a SP97 and a TT 92mm fan. The break in for the AS will only lower the temp by a couple degrees.

    It doesn't seems to be bad at all for a standard use, even if not good for the OC thing.
    To improve the cooling performance you can start removing the thermal pad on the bottom of the HeatSink, and use a very thin layer of good thermal paste.
