Default why is this happening?

I just got a new Zalman CNPS9500 LED 3 days ago, and up to now every day my cpu rises by 1 degree Celcius!!! 3 days ago it was 38, yesterday 39, and today 40. All idle temps. Can someone tell me whats going on?

Oh and another thing, the first day i got it my system would load at CPU:45C and Mobo 43C, and yesterday it was at CPU:45C, and mobo 46C!!! I havent tried it yet today.

The CPU fan speed hasnt changed at all either, its been the same since i got it.

...you do know that ambient temperature will affect it as well...if it's warmer out then your idle temp will be warmer.

a few degrees isn't anything to fret about.

However...did you apply any thermal paste when installing?

What's the rest of your setup? Are you OCd? Because those temps are a tad high for an idle...but it all depends on your setup really.

Also..how is your case airflow set up? Your CPU fan should exhaust toward your case exhaust fans...usually a 120mm in the back but not always.

yeah i know those are pretty high, I actually have no case airflow at all right now. The only thing I have really is a Zalman CNPS9500LED and yeah, I have it blowing air out of the case, but I cant live on that forever. So yeah, I'm getting a couple of silverstone 120MM fans next week though that im gonna use as an intake and exhaust fan, so hopefully that shoud make a huge difference.

it takes like 100 hrs (maybe alittle less) and multiple heat cycles for the AS-5 to set up to where it is working optimally. patience young padawon

100, 200 hours somewhere between there for the paste. It could be a while before it actually go's down fully. And you have no case fans? FTW!
