I5-3570k stock clock temps too high?

ok so i ran a blended stress test with prime95 and my cpu is hitting mid 80s to 91-92 Celsius on all the cores. i just applied some thermal grease a few hours ago using the "pea". at the moment i am using the h70 core liquid cooling. what could be the problem?

The problem could be a combination of four things (others may suggest more):
1) If you're using a "pea"-sized amount of TIM, you're using way too much. Depending on what compound it is, 1-2 grains of rice is more like it. I'd look up application stories from folks who have used the same compound to see what's worked for them.
2) The cold plate may not be seated properly. The first time I installed an H50, I though it was seated as well as could be, but it was actually barely making contact.
3) If everything is at stock and you haven't changed any settings, then your voltages are too high. High voltages will generate more heat.
4) The 3570k is put together...poorly. Instead of the IHS being soldered to the die as was the case with the 2500k, it's glued to it with TIM. Many people, after having "delidded" their CPUs, applied TIM properly, and then relidded them, have seen temperatures drop 20-30C.

What case do you have and how are the fans set (intake or exhaust)

my case is the Coolmaster storm trooper and my fans/exhaust are blow out of the case

Try reapplying thermal paste. It should solve the issue. If not, come back to us.
Don't forget to re-seat the CPU cooler

i possibly did put too much TIM then im going to reapply a smaller amount and readjust the my cooler. let ya'll know how it goes.

ok so i reapplied less TIM onto my CPU. Temperatures did drop on the stress test to avg of 60-71 Celsius on all cores. i feel like its still a tad bit high. this normal for the i53570k?

It's not too high for the CPU but it is higher than average for that setup. Are you able to go into your BIOS and adjust voltages?

yes i am able. CPU voltage is at 1.152V

Hmmm, that actually sounds reasonable. My board gives mine 1.24v or something ridiculous like that at stock on auto. Your current temps are tolerable. Do you plan on overclocking? What TIM are you using?

i was planning on OC eventually. but my temps are making me avoid it. Ive been using Thermaltake tg-2 grease. Idle temps seem lower today.

Woah, those idles are crazy. Are you in a cold room? And are load temps still the same?

yes room fairly chilly... 71 Fahrenheit. i live in miami so i try keeping cool inside haha and i have about 7 fans running in my case, exhausting out through the heat sink. loads are averaging in the mid 60s. i guess this CPU just runs hot
