while doing a prime stress test? Thanks..

If I can run prime 12-24hours straight does it mean that my CPU is stable @ 5Ghz?
I only reach this high temps on Prime. I played Crysis 3, BF3, Far Cry 3 but none of this games makes my CPU temp go over 70c even if I'm on 5Ghz. My idle temp is around 25c-40c. Do I still need to lower down my OC from 5Ghz?
You may be stable and these high load temps is what you'd expect pushing 1.438v through an Ivy Bridge processor, and that is fine for benching, but IMHO your temps are to High, or more importantly your voltage is to High without a custom loop to keep the load temps down for a stable 24/7 OC. I'd like to see your vcore at high 1.2**v or low 1.3**v for a 24/7 OC w/Ivy, just my opinion though
Also consider the "long term" stress on your motherboard at those voltages/temps. And if you run IBT at this voltage your temps could go well above 100c. IBT typically will raise temps 5c-10c+ higher than P95. Even if your main purpose is only gaming (max load 70c) I wouldn't want my P95 load temps higher than 80c-85c max for overall stability even with your somewhat high ambients (27c-30c) ... And for many of us w/more typical 22c ambients we usually strive for no more than 75c load temps for overall 24/7 stability. So I'd lower my vCore/OC until I achieved that threshold. I could go on and on but I recommend you read up by searching this thread with "IBT" like HERE HERE
Or you could reconsider D-liding your IB processor, some results are nothing short of amazing ... same goes for Haswell for all those that are debating an upgrade from Sandy ... SEE HERE
... Haswell HERE
You may find THIS LINK
pretty helpful as well. It deals directly with a 3570K and how to become truly gaming stable with P95/IBT/Furmark etc. Very informative blog and he echoes a lot of what I've experienced building mid-high end rigs. To say that gaming doesn't stress the CPU much these days is a misnomer ... BF3 64multiplayer or even Serious Sam 3 anyone?

Doing this could push his temps well over 100c for "extended" periods of time ... not recommended.

Due to your higher ambient temp and the fact a non-delid Ivy runs hotter anyway, I would say your temps are what to expect at 5ghz. I would come down to something more stable
for 24/7 use though.
I think what you meant to say here is "something with cooler CPU load temps for 24/7 use"
because you can be stable at very high vCore but do you really want 95c+ temps 24/7?
EDIT(s): My apologies for not making my points "clear" (er) without writing pages of info ...
Hope you get the idea and you find this somewhat helpful Edited by TomcatV - 7/3/13 at 4:54pm
