I recently bought a new e6600 at stock speeds and a EVERCOOL HPC-925 heatsink when i booted my computer up i checked the temperatures they were around 30 degrees Celius and would slowly rise after 5 mins the temperature was 50 degrees celcius which i know is not good i have checked to make sure the heatsink is installed properly.

It may be the ambient temperatures in your Case. Are you using the standard CPU Fan & HS?

Okay,cool. What HSF are you using? Do you have the fan mounted for the flow going in the correct direction?

Also, I did a fair bit of investigation into setting up fans and their respective flow directions within the case, and how it affects the ambient temperatures.

Did you place the fans in the case yourself, or are they just the standard?

You removed the old heatsink compound and used new stuff, correct? Having too many fans is not always a good thing. You have to balance the inbound and outbound CFM

yes i have removed the old compound today i tried to reinstall the heatsink again, yes i cleaned the compound off, and i am still having problems with heat it still rises to 50 but it does it more slowly, could it be i have a bad cpu or something? the only other things that are running in the case is a 8800gts and 2 hard drives the case is a coolermaster stacker 830 if that helps.

i know the cpu can handle 60+ degrees but still 50 degrees reading from the bios is still a little uneasy for me with a after market heatsink.

One more thing - how long have you had the E6600? I had forgotten that mine went through a.....wearing in(?) period...where it was surprisingly warm for no reason.

It started off fairly low (mid 30's to mid 40's), and then was at/around 50C for a while, but never really went over about 55C (unless it was a failry warm day...). Now it sits back at around 45C....

Can you use a recording program (Sandra Lite? Everest?) to record you temps for a period and see if it is similar phenomena?
Additionally I did recently read a review that they (being the reviewer and his mob) felt that the CPU had gone through a wearing in period for the HSF thermal paste, and then it worked quite well.... May be the same thing here......? :thumbsup:
