Hi , first of all i want to apologize for my really bad english but i will try to explain this infernal week with this new rig XD

I was only in console gaming but after being mind blowed with pc graphics i spent all my 3 month savings ( sucks to dont be rich XD) money in a brand new pc and decided to build it by myself :) 

Assembling the pc was very easy but when i turned on the power all the things that can go wrong , obiously went wrong but first of all i want to know wtf with this cpu problem.

I read somewhere that you can kick the ass of the cpu with these prime 95 program , so i downloaded before trying to overclock my brand new cpu!

After running prime for 25 seconds i realized that mi cpu went from 35c to 80c+

Here is the screen shot:

Of course the fan is spinning because my pc case is open and i can see it , the cooler doesnt make any strange noise or anything .

I tried to go to the bios to see what went wrong but i cant even enter bios by pressing delete , so the only way of getting there is pressing f12 , going to boot up menu and then selecting setup.

So in the bios a changed the specs to get 4.000 mhz on cpu originaly 3.400 ( 3.800 ) of stock to see what temperature i can get letting all the specs untouched (i supposed that going from 3.8 to 4.0 wasnt a big deal but after like 1 minute the cpu temperature went from 35c to 95c so i stopped the test to avoid damaging the cpu.

When i installed the cpu in the mother board nothing went wrong installed the cpu and the cooler flawlessly so i think no installation problem but i cant check because i have some fear of damaging the cpu by removing the fan cooler. ( so sad to be a noob at this :(  )

Please help me!

This are my specs:

Motherboard Gigabyte z77x-UD3H
CPU Intel Core i5-3570k stock cooler
RAM Corsair Vengeance 4gb x 2 1333hz
PSU Extreme 2 625 watts
GTX 650TI SSC

Best solution

The stock cooler wasn't meant to dissipate heat from a good overclock. The temps sound a little high with no overclock, but that could be the ambient is high or just the way that particular CPU is. I'd look into a cheap aftermarket cooler like the CoolerMaster Hyper 212 either the plus or the evo. Also, pick up some thermal paste, too much or too little can cause high temps too. You can google how to apply thermal paste. Actually, I think the 212 comes with some paste, I don't remember right now.

damn! do you think i messed my cpu by letting go to 95c? im such a asshole , any permament damage or anything by getting that hot? Ive had a freeze screen while playing Skyrym , so i had to shut down the pc by pressing the power button for like 5 seconds.

All modern motherboards have a built in temp detection that will shutdown the system if your CPU gets too hot. Settings for this are in BIOS. Anyways, check to see if your Heatsink is on properly, cause the Intel heatsinks that use pushpins like to pop out sometimes.

I do not think it should have got that hot. I would double check to make sure you have the heatsink firmly mounted. As for overclocking I would not even attempt any overclocking on a stock heatsink that is best left to a good aftermarket setup.

But if i remove the Heatsink the thermal paste will go off? I mean I have to reapply again some more right ? I remember reading the manual of the cpu that removing the heat sink may cause the top of the cpu to damage or somethig like that , i feel really like a noob by letting go to 95c i am reading that the degradation process starts at 90c in ivy bridge EPIC FAIL

Well 2 things:
1) You shouldn't have to remove the heatsink, just make sure it's firmly in place (it should move or be wobbly at all). If it is, make sure all 4 pins are locked down, it's best to use a flat-head screwdriver to screw them down since they have inserts in the pins for it.
2) If you feel you do need to remove it, still use a flat head screwdriver to pop out all 4 push pins and as you're lifting the heatsink, give it a gentle twist as you pull it up. Nothing will happen to the CPU as it has a mechanism on the Mobo to lock it in place.

And what about the 95c overheat ? Any perm damage?

Your MB should have a threshold which the PC will shutdown to avoid damage to those components. Unless you manually tweaked them, then there's no guarantee. anyway 95 degrees should be core temps not the T-case temps. My guess is your will be fine.

One more thing stock cooler for ivybridge and above is a no go for me i cranked my i5-3570K to 4ghz on stock can it cant take it.

Yeah dude , in fact there was the core temps , so no damage ? sorry for being so repetitive but i have the idea that letting my cpu to that temperature damaged it in some way like long term , or degraded it , if in a future iv got some crashes i will be instantly thinking about that incident , in fact ive had a crash while playing skyrym . what are the consecuences of that mistake? anyway where i can see the t case temps? And what is the limito of both ? Going tomorrow to buy a hyper 212 plus :)

If you are able to still use your computer means the CPU is fine. Do not worry about degrading as the CPU has the longest life span compared to other components like HDD, GPU etc.

To put it simple the new CPUs have thermal management in-built is kinda hard to fry your CPU.
