I just got the new 4770k about two days ago and have been stress testing my rig with the stock intel air cooler. While running the small FFT's in Prime95, my CPU temps went up to 95C in just a few seconds. I suspect that with further running of the small FFT test, I would see temps higher than 100C. After seeing such a dramatic increase in temps, I shut off the test and started a blend test. The blend test gave me slightly lower temps in the 75-80C range but I think that is still to high for me to let it run for hours. I have heard that the new Haswell temps are high but these temps just seem rediculous at stock voltage and clock speed. Any advice on how to get these temps down? At this point, I plan on buying at least a Hyper 212 EVO or maybe a H100i.
