Intel 2500k Hyper 212 Evo too hot?

Hi! I was wondering if anyone could tell me if my temps are too high for my current build. I currently have my 2500k OC'd to 4.5ghz. The idle temps are around 35-40, and my 100% load temps when using prime 95 are 58-65. Are these temps normal for this cooler? I went back down to stock, and the temps were around 30-35, which from what I have read, is sort of high with a properly installed hyper 212 Evo. The build is in a Rosewill Blackhawk, if that helps. Thanks for the help, and let me know if you guys need any more info about my build.

    i have roughly the same temps on my 3570K with the same cooler, mine doesnt go above 62C tho and thats doing WCG/F@H :D definitely within safe temps for sure. 75 and above is when i personally would start to worry. you have to remember its summer right now temps will vary more than in fall or winter.

    Fair enough, I was just reading that people get temps down around 20-25c stock using similar cooling. That's pretty much what I figured but I said "Well, if I CAN get it cooler, why not?"
  3. wtf? no sort of cooling will bring down your temps by 25c unless you got a high end nh-d14 or a h220 liquid cooler.

    your temps are great. id try a higher clockspeed until you end up in the high 70s and thats where id suggest stopping

    Fair enough! unfortunately, after 4.5 things get really unstable. BSOD less than 2 minutes after starting prime 95, with temps around 60.
