CPU Temp increase when installing a GPU?

Hello everyone,

I recently built my first PC and I also overclocked my 3570k to 4.4Ghz.

Specs:
3570k
ASRock z77 Extreme4
Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz 2x4GB
Cooler Master Seidon 120M
Zalman Z11 Plus Case

Since I overclocked my CPU to 4.4Ghz, I ran Prime95 for 15 hours and the max temp it reached was 87*C. I was told that 87*C was not the best temp but it should be alright. But as you can see in my specs I did not include a GPU, as I am waiting for the NVIDIA GeFore 760ti to come out. So my question is...
Will my temps become too high once I have my new GPU installed? If so I guess I may have to reduce my OC to 4.2Ghz perhaps?

Thanks in advance to anyone who replies!

  1. your temps should not change too much

    you have a pretty good case, and the 760TI isn't a particularly power hungry GPU, so it won't be spitting out too much heat. also, Prime is a very intense program, and will reach heat levels you'll never actually hit normally.

    Alright thankyou so much for clearing that up. Like I said, I am a new PC builder so I do not know too much. :)
