I bought a 3570k and paired it up with an MSI Z77 mPower Board for my new rig. I ran Prime95 and IntelburnTest on it and it reached around 75 degrees under load. I think that is very high as the cooler Im using is a Cooler Master TPC 812 in a push pull configuration with 2 Cooler Master XtraFlo fans. My CPU idles around 42 degrees and my mobo says that my case temp is about 33-35 degrees. Is there something wrong with my CPU and do I need to RMA it? I can currently overclock to 4.4GHz and my temps are like 85 under load and 45 idle. I am using a Noctua NT-H1 thermal compound and I have applied and reapplied for about 3 times now and all the temps are about the same.
