Case : corsair 200r with the stock fans.
Software used : Prime95 and HWMonitor
Thermal compound used for cpu : the one which came with the hyper212 evo

Stress tested for about 12 minutes. Max temperature is 72C and min temperature when idle is 37C. Room temperature is 35C. I live in South India where hot and humid climate is prevalent. Please buddies!! I am looking to overclock and i think these temps are slightly high. Is this normal for haswell pcs?? Are these temps worth for my money??

Shit...How do i change this to cpu forums?

Your ambient is about 10 degrees higher than most lifting those temps. Prime will heat the CPU more than any other program will so you are alright.

Your ambient temperature is a bit high, accounting for your temps.

I like OCCT for stress testing.
It gives you a graph of temperatures, and will shut down at 85c.
Haswell actually runs cool until you need a high voltage.
I expect that you can oc to the 4.0+ level without a problem.
Do not worry about damage, the cpu will downclock or shut down at 100c or sio to prevent damage.

Thanks rolli59 and geofelt. I was afraid that these temps arent normal and i thought that there was a malfunction or something.
