High temps for i5-2500K?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm running Prime95 blend test with 4 threads, and temps are hovering around 68*C, with Core #2 being 75*C. I feel these temps are too high under full load. I'm using a HAF932 case (supposedly good airflow), installed 2 extra fans too, Arctic Silver 5, and Cooler Master 212 fan. I'm not sure why my temps are so high with such an (I feel) configuration for maximum air flow...

My case's airflow is:
Front 20cm fan (intake)
Top 20cm fan (exhaust)
Side 2x 14cm fans (intake)
Back 14cm fan (exhaust)

Overclocked or stock?

and those temps are really high for an i5 2500k tbh, either your putting serious volts in or you've mounted it poorly

Yes, I've got it stable at 4.3GHz. I'll try reinstalling the fan and thermal compound.
