I think you said earlier in thread that you had reapplied thermal paste? Make sure you are using a thermal compound and have cleaned both the CPU and heat sink before reapplying it each time you do that. When using the 212 evo make sure to tighten the center thumb screw under the cooling tower, it will help apply pressure ensuring the cooler base is firmly seated against the cpu for efficient heat transfer.
Also, again. Try going into the BIOS and turning up the CPU fan speed. Also, lol, make sure your fan is indeed spinning.
If it’s been fine all this time and suddenly started doing this, then yea, might be time to look for a upgrade.
I did a quick search and people say this works very well with your motherboard and that CPU,
People are reporting 65C max temps with your CPU and that cooler under full load. Just make sure that you have at least 162 mm space to fit it.
Btw, quick question, what’s your voltage? People are reporting with this CPU that the motherboard automatically manages voltage to the CPU and tends to mess it up. They say that the MB is pushing 1.3v into it. Which, at that point, you’d need some sort of custom water cooling.
The load temps also depend on the power delivery system of your motherboard. Sometimes if your mobo is automatically adjusting the cpu voltage it can give the cpu too much voltage. “Too much” meaning that it is more voltage than is required to power the chip with stability, but will not actually harm the chip itself. If you set your own voltages you can tune it so that the cpu is only getting the voltage that it needs at any given moment to run with stability. This usually means reducing the voltage somewhat from the automatic setting. Any reduction in voltage in any circuit will yield lower operating temps. Also when your processor is at idle it is usually only being fed around 0.8-1.0 volts, not the full 1.3 that it gets under load. This is why your load temps are high and your idle temps are normal. If you are not overclocking it then you could maybe go down to around 1.1 V for the load voltage but always start by lowering 0.01V at a time until the system is no longer stable and then use the last stable increment that you tested and congrats you have just optimized you CPU’s power delivery.
