Yup in BIOS I think CPU is run at full speed or power saver are disabled thus makes temp higher.

For 3570K, my friend told me that 323... or 324... have good OC performance, I have 3570K batch 3221C079 costarica can do 4.5GHz 1.185 Volt and my friend have 3570K batch 323... can do 4.7GHz 1.175 Volt... Just for information, but it is true you need to test it by your self.
