Hey everyone,
I recently purchased a i7 4770k and cm 212 evo. I do want to overclock, but wanted to run some tests first. I turned on real temp gt and intel burnin test at maximum. I am getting around 85 degrees without even overclocking. Should I be concerned or can I just start overclocking. I know that you should not let it get over 90 and my cpu only gets to around 50-60 degrees when gaming. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

Just ran prime 95 on blend for 5 minutes never got about 70. No idea why the Intel burnin test is getting my cpu so hot.

Why do you think that it is getting so hot?

Intel Burn Test will do that to a processor. I, personally, wouldn't use it to test for a stable overclock. Try Prime95, a few good Small FFT's tests should suffice for overclock testing.
