I'm pretty sure this isn't normal. But you guys can tell me, i've run prime 95 and it went has high as 87 degrees before i stopped it, after like 10 minutes...there is thermal paste on it and the stock cooler...is the stock cooler that bad?

Well, the termal paste that came on the stockcooler. And how would i be positive that it's inserted perfectly? I don't think the fan could be has deep in the holes has they are.

I found Core Temp to be the most accurate. It just displays what the CPU sensor is reading in the BIOS. Sounds about right. My old X3440 would peak around the same area. I suggest getting a good cooler like a Hyper 212 Plus or an H50 or something along the lines of being "not stock". Almost anything is better...
