Hi,
I just built my PC and my i5 3570K shows about 46-50 C when I was writing this.
Are this temperatures good?
I have a Hyper 212 Evo installed.
Also I have a NZXT Phantom with 3 fans.
Please, I need help.
Thanks!

Did you overclock it? I would estimate that it should be around 36-40C.
What are the temps when gaming?

Are your fan speeds adjusting by themselves?

Unless your room is unusually hot, I think there is something wrong.
At idle, something like 15c over ambient would be reasonable.

Temperature measurements can be misleading, depending on what the measurement app is.
Try realtemp, or OCCT.
If they all agree, look into remounting the heat sink.
Perhaps you used too much or too little grease.

No I didn't overclock it, It's running at stock speeds.
When gaming , the temps are around 60-70 C , haven't seen a 70 C yet though!

Yeah, just tried RealTemp now, I'm going to post the pic ..

Those look ok to me.
You bought a "K" to overclock.
When you do, your temperatures will go up.
But, not to worry. If the temperatures get too high, the chip sill downclock to prevent damage.
Use OCCT to stress test your overclock. I will stop the test if things get too hot, and give you nice graph of your run.

Yes, I live in India, but I live in North India, at Hardwar, in Uttarakhand.

Definitely too hot. With an Evo turning low RPMs in a 21C room, I idle at 30-32C.

Well, I did brought a "K" but mine is running at stock speeds (3.4Ghz) ...
Is this okay then? I haven't overclocked yet.
Okay, I'll use OCCT!
Thanks

What should I do bro? I'm really worried!

What's the ambient room temperture? Is the fan pushing air or pulling it (should be blowing thru the heatsink and out the back or top of the case).

How did you apply the thermal paste? May want to remove the heatsink, clean it, reapply, and reattach in case it's not seated properly.

You aren't overclocking and the CPU is running hot. Did you buy good thermal paste and apply it correctly?

When you look at the max values sometimes it's misleading. Example...your system normally says 40C, if you peridoically check the value, but the max might be 50C. Sometimes that's a spike. It's only temporary, so don't worry. Now, if you were gaming at 60C and suddenly you were getting 80C max then I'd be worried what happened.

How are you running your fans? automatic or controlled?

Ambient RT is around 20 C .
The fan is blowing through the heatsink and out the back or top of the case.
I applied the thermal compound as tthe manual described .
I also think that :(

I am running my fans at automatic I think , I used Asrock Extreme Tuning Utitlity
And I have no Idea how am I running the EVO , Could you tell me please? :) 
I havent seen a 80 C yet, I had a Prime95 for 2 cycles (54% CPU usage) and the max was 69 C .

I use AXTU also. Your motherboard can control the speed of your CPU fan if it has a 4 pin connector. However, I've seen times where my motherboard fails to adjust the fan speed properly. At stock the system is fine, when gaming I have to manually adjust fan speeds in AXTU. (I have 4 case fans and CPU fan. I live in Taiwan so I need extra cooling)

Monitor your CPU temps while watching a movie or surfing the internet. What is a typical value?

How do you manually adjust the CPU fan? O_O
Oh, While I am replying to you , the temp. is around 37-40 C , mind that in background a downloading is running and also I have 12 tabs open in Chrome . Is that good?
