Make sure you're using thermal paste too, that might be why>?
You can do higher, but 100C is not good.

Wow, I knew this is what I was going to be reading when I saw the thread title. Someone gets a computer built for them but the cpu is too hot, they check and voila, something is wrong, one time there was no thermal paste and one time someone left the plastic cover on in old threads.

When you took the Intel fan off was there paste looking crap on it?

That stuff is called thermal paste.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT AND SHOULD NOT BE RAN WITHOUT THIS.

Basically your cpu is overheating and throttling back to protect itself and product less heat.

You need 70% isopropyl alchohol and a couple of coffee filters.
Dab the filter with the alchohol and then wipe off the old thermal paste on the bottom of the intel fan heatsink and on the top of your cpu.

Go to the local pc shop and ask if they have thermal paste. Comes in a small syringe.
And if they have non curing thermal paste that is even better.

Then you will have to apply a small bb sized dot on the top of the cpu in the socket.

After you do that take your cooler and push it down on there very slowly and evenly apply pressure. This will spread the paste around evenly.
DO NOT LIFT UP THE COOLER. Keep it contacted not until you screw it in. If you lift it up you will let air bubble in that vacuum seal you just created and ruin the effect of the thermal paste.

I picked up two tubes , trying to apply it now but misplaced the opened one the second I put it down after misapplying it the first time >.>

Will report back with new temperatures after I find the tube and get this heatsink on. (Only using half-pea amount)

Haha, Well i know i can be run at 100c, but only if you've overclocked it to 5ghz!

Running it at that temp will half the life of the chip if not kill it very soon.

I'm so used to my watercooling that i've not seen any temps over 55c for well over a year now... so when i saw nearly double that i nearly passed out!

Good luck with the Thermal Paste, that **** is messy and a ***** to get out of clothes and Pci-e slots!!

There is many different techniques to applying, all with the same basic principle, maximum contact between the HS and chip, the weight of most HS should spread the (dry) pea sized blob out nice and evenly.

Love you guys! Steadily idling at 48c with the cores clocking at 3.2ghz after turning on that turbo mode.

I tried to buy myself a Corsair H70 today, wouldn't have minded getting a Thermalright Archon but stores for decent computer parts are thin on the ground in the Gold Coast, Australia and international delivery makes it a bit of a tossup about how much something better is really worth. Sadly umarts instock/nostock status was out of date, I get there and it changes from instock to preorder a few hours after I ordered and got told they were out of stock :'(

Great new man!

The H50/70 is good if you have 2 decent fans (push/pull + shrouds) otherwise a decent HS is fine if you have the space in your case,

Congrats on getting to the bottom of it, any more problems just let us know.

Happy Gaming!
