i5 3570k Getting way to hot

Hi all just finished my pc build and my i5 3570k @4.5ghz is hitting and idle of around 40 degrees and on load with intel burn tester it hits way over what it should be, around 100 degrees. I am using the cooler master evo 212, i have one case fan on max at the front and one on minimum at the rear. i have re-applied the thermal paste 4 times with no improvement.

More about : 3570k hot

Its because you've overclocked it to much with that cooler, you are only supposed to overclock that much with a liquid cooler not a fan

But i have seen others with the same cooler hit these speeds? shame, what if i added more fans? i can add up to four more with my case, if not what would be a suitable overclock?

The EVO is only good for mild overclocks it's a budget cooler.

Its not that the cooler cant handle it.... Its just that combined wth your tower its not an efficient airflow inside the case. Instead of getting a new cooler since you already have the 212 i would suggest getting a new case with better arflow, its an investment for the future as well. And check some guides for manual Ocing just to be safe, 4.5Ghz only on multipliers works most of the time but sometimes it results in high temperatures

I'm no expert on it, but I have read plenty about the poorly applied TIM Intel used under the heat spreader. You may want to consider delidding the guy and applying better TIM underneath. There are many guides on how to do this safely. Some of the best are on this forum and overclock.net.

It's an EVO 4.5 would be if you received a lottery chip.

Do you think it could hold a 4.2 or 4.4 ghz overclock with all case fans added?

On a side note i used Arctic silver 5 thermal compound

Yes 4.2 to 4.3 would be more like it's range.

Any suggested CPU voltages (offset or fixed ones?)

Also, I have a 3570k @ 4.6GHz with 1.285v, and I idle @ 31c with a 212+. I have 2 CM SickleFlow fans in push/pull, though. The case does have a significant impact on temps. I'm using the CM Storm Trooper.

Fully taxed with prime, my chip gets to 88c, which is safe but hot. I'd recommend buying a better case. 2 fans isn't enough.

I hit 4.2 on my 3570k with very little voltage change.

should i do a intel burn test on standard clock speeds and get back to you guys to see if my temps are normal?

Right i thought id just jump in and test 4.2ghz and it can only just mantain it, its highest spike was 105 degrees out of all cores but avarageing around 79 degrees, this was after 10 runs with intel burn tester

okay i did an intel burn test for ten runs at standard clocks and had it hit 74 degrees maximum is that normal?

What's your voltage at? When I had my 3570k I was able to get to 4GHz @ 1.08v, which gave me 35-58 degrees on idle-load. This is using a Cooler Master 212 Plus.

i can get @4.2ghz at 40 degrees with and offset voltage of 0.060 and a cpu load line of 3

What are your actual voltages? Use CPU-z to measure.

Guys great news my bios auto set the voltage to 1.360 and I've changed it to 1.200 and changed the ghz to 4.2 and I now get 29 degrees idle temp and 70 with 100% load after 20 runs of intel burn tester:)  thanks for all your support guys, stay awesome!

Awesome! I thought your voltage must have been really high to be getting those temps.
