ever since I got my build I have loved it. everything except the CPU. this cpu must be cursed to torture me or something. from the day I installed it with my coolermaster hype 212 evo I have had high temps. I have reapplied the thermal paste multiple times to no avail. I have since then just admitted defeat. I have no idea what is wrong.
for example right now just on the internet 1 page and downloading a game in the background my temps are at
core 0: 41-54 constantly changing and having "heat spikes"
core 1: 47-57
core 2: 42-53
core 3: 40-55

at idle temps for all cores range from 30-45 at IDLE
during prime for 10 minutes I got in the low 70's

I am just about to give up I don't care anymore. i

They seem a tad bit high, but normal. Ivy-Bridge runs hotter than Sandy-Bridge too.

Core temps will be higher then the normal CPU temp on the i5's and will vary among core.

For example my temperatures with sandy-bridge on idle:
CPU 28C
Core1: 37
Core2: 34
Core3: 38
Core4: 36
It's actually really hot where I live right now, but typically 10c cooler than what I've stated.

A pea-sized dot of thermal paste to center, and letting heat-sinks weight spread the paste is a great method.

that's exactly what I did. pea sized. in the center. let the heatsink spread. Ive tried all kinds of variations of this like putting the peasize a little bit closer to one side of the cpu, the other side, higher up, a dot, a small line. all with the same results. guess I was just unlucky "like most of the time" and got a bad chip.



edit: I am also running off of the integrated hd 4000, on a hdmi cable.
maybe this could also be affecting temps? or does that not affect the temps of the CPU cores?

That's similar to what my bios reported when I booted my 3570k for the first time. 45C. That's really high in my opinion as my old i5-750 would hit 42C under gaming load. But I heard that IB runs hot, so I left it alone. 212+ here for the heatsink btw.

Whats your voltage?

You can try setting your offset to (-)0.05 and lower. Motherboards can give to much voltage to ensure stability, which in turn will make the processor run hotter.

ok well that makes me feel better at least. its just that ive looked at other peoples temps on the same cpu and cooler and they say they get like 59C under load and around 20C idle. just my first time ever looking at the temps of the CPU, before Id just go on the computer and think nothing of it. but since ive been seeing the temps I have tempophobia or something.

just another question. im downloading a game 10gb. just a game and internet open and my temps are around high 40C and low 50 ocassionally. is this normal when just downloading? also the temps seem to shoot up like 5-10C then back down instead of slow increments, which I find disturbing.

according to hwinfo64 my votalge is 1.226 and sometimes goes up to 1.231

Well, you can go lower than that if your chip is any good. I'd say try adjusting voltage on the offset then to the negative zone.

Not all chips are the same so you may not get very far, I've had a 2500k do -140 offset stable, and another unable to go past -60.

so uh how do I do that? I assume in the bios, but last time I went In their all I did was change the amount of VRAM on the hd 4000 to max and after saving and exiting had a "windows did not start properly" and had to click "start windows normally" so im not very keen to enter their again. could I use msi afterburner?

Only do such things through the UEFI/BIOS. You should be able to go into advanced settings and set the offset to negative and then set it to 0.05 and on.

The only things you should really touch voltage wise is the following:
CPU PLL
Offset
Ram voltage

You can follow an overclocking guide that will explain things fairly well too:
