Check CPU-z as well

If the voltage is at 1.2V or higher, then it's overvolting.

Either that or you put the cooler on wrong

I linked a screenshot of CPU-z both idle and under load in the original post. It was 1.152V idle and 1.12V under load.

Everyone keeps harping on the possibility that I put the heatsink on wrong. It's a stock intel heatsink and is easy to mount. You turn the pins the appropriate way (clockwise iirc) and push down until you hear a click/snap sound. I pushed opposite corners when mounting.

First, my build.
Intel i7 3770k
Asus P8Z77-V Pro
16GB (2x8) G. Skill
EVGA GTX 670 FTW
Corsair AX850
HAF X
Just put together a build with the parts above. My first build since my Core 2 Duo build 6 years ago, which is still going strong.
Room temp is 70-75 degrees Fahrenheit. Bios settings are default except that Intel Speedstep and Turbo are disabled so that the CPU is running at a flat 3.5GHz.
Using the stock cooler, my temps are around 40-45 degrees Celsius in the bios with voltage ~1.1. In windows, using RealTemp, my min temps are around 45-50 Celsius while idling. Prime95, after 3 minutes I am near 90 degrees Celsius. I loaded up the BF3 campaign and was instantly around 80 degrees Celsius. Voltages are fluctuating as I left the power savings setting on.

I originally was using the pre-applied thermal paste that comes on the stock cooler. These temps are after I removed the pre-applied paste with 91% rubbing alcohol and applied some arctic silver paste I had lying around. Temps did not improve much if at all. Earlier in the day, with all stock settings (turbo on) , prime95 test was over 100 degrees Celsius within 3 minutes of starting the test.
A friend of mine just built a similar rig but with a Hyper 212 Evo hsf and his temps are 30degrees Celsius idling in windows and never above 60 during prime (stock settings).
I really have no idea what to do. I took everything out, reseated processor, used aftermarket thermal paste and checked to make sure the stock heatsink was attached correctly.
Sitting here typing this from a E6600 Conroe Core 2 Duo oc'd to 3.15GHz and prime95 caps at 65 degrees (aftermarket hsf) with a case that has pretty terrible airflow. Might be comparing apples to oranges but still.
Just looking for any and all input on this. What should I do? What would you do?
This is extremely depressing. I was hoping to overclock with an aftermarket air cooler to 4GHz+. It seems like my other components are perfectly fine, so I am leaning towards just RMA'ing it. I bought it from Newegg and I don't know how this works. I would be pretty depressed if they just send it back to me and say nothing is wrong.
To try to answer some questions right off the bat:
  1. the CPU fan is on
  2. i am confident the heatsink is mounted correctly
  3. when I applied arctic silver tim, I used a pea sized dot

This is not normal at all. I'm with the group, in saying you should get a new cooler, but in the mean time, go into your BIOS and change your fan profile to something more aggressive. Your chip with a stock cooler should be hitting 85C max.

edit: also, does your stock cooler fan say its .28A or .60A?

Don´t execpt any good cooling results from an Stock cooler. 40+ temps are really normal with this stock fan and even more if you have a bad chip..

stock cooler fan says .28A

Then you got hosed with the crappier of the stock coolers. Still change your fan profile though just to keep you from running your chip warmer than you need to.

wow... there is nothing wrong with that cooler at stock speeds. you think INTEL, the worlds biggest processor manufacturer, would send out inadequate coolers with their consumer flagship processor? Stop talking about 212's like they are a god send, they aren't even that great. You may have a faulty heat sensor on the motherboard. bios temps AREN'T IRRELEVANT, it just shows your highest core temp. download core temp to see watts

Stock coolers do tend to suck & be barely adequate. I do agree that bios temps aren't irrelevant, but they show the package temp that has some load on it in bios, core temps will be different. Seeing watts in software isn't very useful, haven't heard of any software that accurately reports cpu watts.

Core temp just shows 0 watts under power.

Has anyone had experience returning a chip to Newegg for a replacement?
