Question Temps go down right?

Ok just installed my new case and such parts. Got a new cooler for video card and replaced the thermal paste on cpu as well. Both are running about 5 degrees celcius higher. It has only been running for 5 minutes but has been sitting for about 12 hours not powered on. Will the temps go down and how long will this take? Also has the fact I now have a closed case make temps higher even though I bought high power fans?

What thermal paste did you install? Which video card cooler did you install? Thermal paste usually takes about 200 hours to set in. What you fan setup like?

You might want to turn on the computer overnight so it can settle in and stuff instead of leaving it off :classic:

Nah not to tight. if you go way to tight it will start to bend. Go snug and line it up and see if its straight.

May the wind always be at your back and the sun upon your face, and may the winds of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars

well, they need some thermal cycles, so it does need some time off. thats what it says on AS5 anyway.

Did you spread it on evenly?

Also, how much did you use? you really dont need much .. if you put too much on it can make things worse...

Closing the case is better than having an open case...your exhaust fans would not be taking out overheated air but would be taking out air at random...

I believe victory only exist at the end, no matter how the factors present it.
