Hours of research with null results. Help. 4790k temp questions. - Page 2

Reducing the CPU voltage to a stable one (that is tested on games and stress test) is probably the best way to go before buying a new air heatsink cooler like the Coolermaster Hyper Evo 212.

Alright, I just re-seated it and it made no difference unfortunately. Thanks for the tip tho.

I will try reducing voltage now.

Update: After having to flash my bios twice because I have never overclocked before manually, and I thought guessing roughly what my voltage should be, I have determined I am way too tired. I managed to get a stable clock at 4.2ghz, 1.13v but it was just as hot as before.

I just need to know if I am screwed, and if so by how much.

I'd check temps with a better cooler first before you determine a faulty chip. You are getting a new cooler anyway. Might as well check it before you go through the trouble of sending it back.

You're probably right, just the cooler. I will try a after market solution and if I am still sky high I will admit defeat.

Thanks for your help!

It would be the stock cooler they are garbage and intel clocks it's cpus too high from the factory because they can't make any real performance progress anymore.
