Hello all. I am new to PC building and seem to be having CPU temp issues.

this is now my 3rd attempt at thermal paste application.

 

in the bios my cpu reports around 30-35C

once in windows cosair link/icue reports 70-74C idle and 90+ under a lite load. 

 

I am using the stock cooler with arctic silver 5 paste. I am not sure what else to do. i have it spread out with the fan running a max speed in the BIOS. I have the tower 900 case with 5 case fans ICUE says the temps are around 25C in the spot the probes are in.

is the cooler mounted properly?

 

don't spread the paste with your fingers, a single small dot in the center of the IHS is enough, if it's too much the pressure will move it to the edges and leave the center uncovered

use msi afterburner or hwmonitor to see the temps.

no sticker. i did not check using the ryzen master or hwmonitor. i was going to try that tomorrow. i did have issues the first time around and got to much pressure which spread the paste to the corners. this time i feel like i got a better spread. a more even spread. i will have to check another software and see what the temps are tomorrow.

If the graphite pads are within a couple degrees of thermal paste, I don't see the point in just not keeping it simple. Im knew to this too and those pads sure look nice for when I take my AIO off. Plus i keep changing parts and had to remove my AIO the other day and I just put it back on with the same thermal paste lol.
