Hi Guys Hope you are doing fine,

I had currently built up my 4th gen PC around 4 months back now i am worried about the temps. that idle temps are 53-72 C without any load and on playing game with load it reaches 91 C on every Core easily......and i am using intel HD 4600 for gaming and graphics work . and I am here in Pakistan Summer Season has just been started ..and my case is well ventilated can be seen in the following thread

My specs :
Intel Core i5 4670K @3.4Ghz can be see in the following attachments
Asus Maximus VI HERO Z87
Cooler Master 690 III
Western Digital Cavier black 1 TB
Corsair GS 800
Corsair Dominator GT 2400 MHZ 8GB Currenlty XMP activated

There are a number of things you could do.

Firstly, try cleaning any dust from the components, especially the heatsink. Use a can of compressed air.

Secondly, you could try replacing the thermal paste. Detach the CPU heatsink and clean the existing thermal paste from the top of the CPU and base of the heatsink using 75-90% isopropyl alcohol and a lint-free material. Then add some new thermal paste using the pea method ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hNgFNH7zhQ ).

Thirdly, get a new heatsink. The stock is quite poor. Something cheap like a Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO should be good, I'm not sure how much it costs over where you live.

Fourthly, and only if you're desperate and willing to void your warranty and potentially kill your chip, you could try delidding your CPU. I'll leave it up to you to research that, though I wouldn't recommend doing it. I'd return the chip before that eventuality.

Sir How about changing my CPU cooler ?? to thermal take frio advanced ? and do you think my CPU is OK ?

Yes, that would be a good choice.

Your CPU probably runs a little hot, but it should be fine. You could return it if you're unsure.

Yeah your CPU will be fine, Intel has great thermal protection. But if where you live you have high ambient temperature I would get a better cpu cooler - The thermal take frio advanced you suggest would be a good upgrade also.
