So I recently built this rig on my own, first build.
Don't know too much about computers parts and etc.
So i might be something wrong,

Anywho, I haven't overclocked my CPU yet. Everything seems to run normal.
My normal CPU Temperature is about 58 - 60 Celsius. I have no idea if that's high or low, or just right.
The problem is running certain programs (Like high-end games or Video editing, not something simple like Chrome), The CPU starts hit around 86C
Which does seem to be pretty hot, especially since the main computer control program shows the CPU temperature in a red color, while it's normally blue.

I am using the cooler that came with the CPU, the stock fan and Heat sink.
So I'm not sure, if its just the part that can't keep it cool, or something. Also the CPU fan definitely work. I've seen it by my own eyes and also with the program that came with the computer.

Also, The motherboard Temperature is about 22C to 30C, no matter how hot the CPU is, maybe it'll hit 33C. But it's not a large number like the CPU.

So Is this normal? Or should I be concerned? I usually turn off what's making the CPU hot and it goes down to normal temperature, fairly quickly, as well as , it's not very hot for a prolonged period, i don't know if that'll kill the CPU itself, So i'm trying to play it safe until I actually know what's wrong, if there is anything wrong in the first place.

Also, I'm not too sure if I should perhaps look into better cooling, since i've heard that using the cooling that came with the CPU isn't always a great idea.

If the solution is to get a better cooling system, What should I get, that's decently priced, I have a Antec 302 case as well, if that should give any insight to what will fit or not.

Thank you in advance.

so youre saying that your idle temps are about 58-60C ? if it is then thats sky high temps. you need to reapply thermal also just so you know that haswell stock cooler sucks pretty bad. whats your budget on aftermarket cooler? for cheap and good cooling performance i would recommend hyper 212 evo

Sky High? Woah.. Must be pretty bad.
I am using the Haswell Stock Fan, So I guess I really should replace it.
I don't want to spend over a 100$ honestly. I've already spent quite a bit on everything else.
But I don't want to cheap out a whole bunch.
I'll take look into the Hyper 212 EVO
Are there any others you could recommend that are better, cause i do want a pretty good cooler that will keep the temps down.
Also, any specific brand of Thermal paste I should look into?

if you want to have a cool looking cooler thats under 100, how about coolmaster v8 gts. also there was a huge debate about which thermal paste is the best but it ended up none of them so they recommend just use what it comes with cooler
