So, I just finished putting together my new computer (in the case and everything). I went to turn it on and it booted up just fine. I went into the BIOS (because I do not have an OS loaded yet) and I found that my CPU temps are already 37*C. This is right on start up and without 1 side of the case.
This is the i5 2500K CPU without it being clocked.
I am not using the stock cooler, I am using this aftermarket heatsink:
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1 "Heatpipe Direct Contact" Long Life Sleeve 120mm CPU Cooler Compatible Intel Core i5 & Intel Core i7
I am, however, using the stock thermal paste that came with the heatsink. I used the spread method to apply the paste.
Does BIOS normally read temps a little high, or is this temp just fine?
