Sure it can. It should not be reaching 90c+. It should be below 75c with 1.330V Vcore and 4.6 GHz and the Hyper 212+.
What are you using to measure temperature? I would think it would start shutting down if it reached 98c. Use realtemp if you are not already,
If you are getting a good reading of the core temperature, then your Hyper 212+ must not be making good contact with the CPU, period. It can be a couple of things - poor application of the thermal conducting paste - but that shouldn;t give temperatures that high, or the heatsink isn't clamped down to the CPU properly - it could be poorly secured on the straps that go across the heatsink to clamp it down could be damaged,. I had that happen. You can see if this is the case by removing the heatsink and examining the paste, but if you do so you will have to clean off and reapply the paste. Post a picture if you do.
Just to be clear, you state two Vcore 1.330V and 1.416. Is the former under load and the latter the maximum unloaded, or.....?Edited by GeneO - 4/1/12 at 8:58pm
