I don't believe its the thermal paste. I've put on plenty of paste over the years and I've never experienced a huge temperature fluctuation like this from alittle too much or a bit not enough.

It must be something else

Overclocking of Socket-1155 compatible processors through modifying the default 100 MHz base clock speed is very limited, probably to about only 2–3% at most, due to the factory integrating a single clock generator to control the speed of all electrical buses. Hence, the base clock (BCLK) of the clock generator has to be kept close to the default 100 MHz base clock to prevent other hardware components from failing to work.[7] However, Intel will allow overclocking through modifying the unlocked clock multiplier of up to 57 times the speed of base clock, which will be available in K-edition processors.[8]

Intel themselves demonstrated an i7-2600K (where the "K" indicates the processor has an unlocked multiplier) running stably overclocked at 4.9Ghz on air cooling (Details not yet revealed).[9][10] This has gained some attention, as of 2010, it typically requires water or better cooling to achieve 4.9 GHz. Liquid Nitrogen Overclocking has refuted that it probably was not an accurate performance demo, saying "not a demo where the system was stressing all cores and threads, and it was not a statement confirming this could be maintained for 24×7 operation."[11] Liquid Nitrogen Overclocking has shown instances of an Core i7-2600K processor operating at 4.5 GHz on a P67-chipset motherboard, and a Core i5-2500K processor operating at 4.2 GHz using a H67-chipset motherboard. All other details are still unknown.

Intel Sandy Bridge E Processors are to come with an unlocked base clock. A Z68 Chipset, to be released in Q2 2011, will come with “Performance OverClocking†support, as Intel calls it.[12]
That's what wikipedia had to say about this topic. Good luck!

Yea I haven't overclocked anything yet, this is at stock settings, going from 35c to high 70c after about 45 secs of stress.

Just seems that tiny HSF isnt going to cut it. Upgrade time!

I guess that's what it's going to have to be then. Even though I think it's ludacris to believe that they would ship it with a HSF that can't even handle full load without borderline burning out the chip. I can understand that it's not going to run at 20c full load while overclocked with a 1.5 vcore, but it should be reasonably around 50c load, I shouldnt need pelter cooling just to run it at 3.3ghz

I guess I'll just chalk it as a loss, go pickup a hyper 212 and while I'm there, just exchange the mobo and cpu, along with the SSD hd cause the write speeds on it seems alittle lower than average for the model, hoping that it's just THAT specific hd

that microcenter rebadged Adata S599. Reads are good 200mb range but writes are like 65mb

Why not get a OCZ Vertex2 drive? Those are suppose to be even faster than that.
Or the Corsair F series.

I'm sorry.. but seriously, if you're using a pea sized amount, it IS the paste. I'm not trying to be hard on you or what have you.

It's not just a little bit too much..

Try a significantly smaller amount. I bet 100% that too much TIM or an improper mount is your problem.

Wait, wait. 70C? That's not 'overheating'! These chips are just fine all the way up to ~90-95 man. It's certainly not great but it's not a problem at -all-.
