I have a 3770k and a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus cooling it. Although recently I've noticed that the temperatures are way too high for the load it was under. My friend has a Hydro H100 and a 3770k and his temps are cooler on every level. I don't mind if my fan gets loud but is there any way to make the fan rotate faster to get it cooler? There must be some BIOS settings I can configure but I'm not sure how to. If not BIOS is there any 3rd party application?

Here is a temp of my reading at idle:

Since it wouldn't let me take a screenshot during a CPU stress test the temps hovered around 82-85C while under 99-100% load.

I feel like my temps while idle are too high, I can understand 100% load being 85C (even though that is still really high, bcz my friend only gets in the low 70s.)

My fan just doesn't sound very loud and I definitely think I might burn my CPU out in the near future bcz some CPU demanding games are already starting to stutter.

Thanks in advance.

Do you have 2 fans on the cooler? How is airflow in your case?

Yeah I'm thinking of picking up a liquid cooling unit perhaps I'll get better results. I just remember applying thermal paste regularly and it was quite a while ago. Havent changed the paste in well over 2 years. Should I?

Yeah, and make sure it fills the gaps as shown on the page I linked to. The 212+ has good performance when thermal paste is applied completely. This is the only solution for getting the 212+ to perform as it was intended to perform.
