I'am using CPUID HWMonitor to see my temperature.

my setup:

Motherboard: Sabertooth z77
CPU: i5 4570k
GPU: GTX 670
BOX: CoolerMaster HAF X Advanced

Ive been running HWMonitor for a couple of days and I noticed after playing Arma 3 that my max temperature is getting to 85c, is that worrying? Should I reinstal my heatsink ? Should I buy an other one, nothing is overclocked. I tough of the Corsair H100 or CoolerMaster v8 (to continu air cooling) .. So I can think about overclocking my CPU

Idle temps: 37c - 40c
Minimum: 21c
Maximum: 85c

I have stock heatsink and it running about 960RPM, can it go higher than that?

That does seem high for that CPU. But then the stock heatsink in barely adequate anyway... not at all for overclocking. If you used the TIM supplied with the stock heatsink... you might drop a few C's by going to something better like Gelid Extreme.... but your best bet is both better TIM and a better Heatsink (or a watercooling AIO, like you mentioned)

Heatsinks; I would recommend either the Hyper 212 Evo (good), Phanteks PH-TC14 (better) or the Noctua ND14 (better / best?) There are a lot of 'sinks out there... and everyone has an opinion! lol!

Read some reviews... figure your budget... go for it!
