Hey guys. I just finished building my new haswell gaming pc, though I have encountered an issue. I was booting from my optical drive (trying to install Linux) and everything was fine for half an hour. Then, I discovered the disk was bad, so I shut it down. Came back later and did a demonstration of the BIOS for some friends, and I noticed something. The cpu heat load was fairly rapidly rising. Within 10 seconds of starting up, the thing was overheating. However, I checked and the cpu cooler was spinning at 1700 rpm. I don't know what the issue is. Anyone had this problem? Thanks guys, I really don't want to fry my brand new processor.

Did you apply thermal paste to the processor?
And what were the specific temps, as well as what were you using to monitor them?

Thermal paste was already applied to the bottom of the stock fan when it came, so I never applied thermal paste myself. Do i need to push down on the fan to smear the thermal paste? I was monitoring the temps with BIOS, and the temp was climbing over 60 degrees Celsius, which I'm pretty sure is WAY to hot while idling.

Okay; my bad, I forgot that about the Intel stock coolers.
ATM, I run a 3770k (underwater) at 30 idle, maxing out at 40.
What CPU do you have?

I am running the 4770k.

With a stock cooler, the max that you should be getting is 40 or so. Are you sure that everything is screwed in properly, etc.?

You are fine. BIOS temps will easily climb to 60+ Centigrade with stock cooler. I hope there is no OC involved. My i5 2400 reports 65C with stock cooler if I see my temps in BIOS with an ambient of 35C.

BIOS will run one busy loop at the non turbo default speed of your cpu and will engage only one core. Non of the power saving features and Intel speed step are available while you are in the BIOS and therefore you will se high temps as compared to when you enter windows and all those features activate.

If your ambient is way lower then there may be some issue but it seems very normal behaviour to me. Monitor temps in windows and share those.

good luck

I checked, and there was one loose connection. Now that I am monitoring temps in BIOS, I am getting around 40 Celsius. I'm guessing that's reasonable?

Thanks for letting me know that BIOS temps are higher them the normal temps I'll be getting. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw that 65 Celsius temp on the screen :p . I think the real problem was the one loose connection though. Which is odd, since from looking at the back of the mobo, everything looked fairly equal.

Yes, those temps are great.
Glad to be of help :)
