i7 4770k same temps stock-4.2GHz!?!?!

Just as what the title says, the temps for my 4770k stay the same from stock clocks and turbos to 4.2 fixed clocked. It even got hotter using stock!?!? What's happening? Is this a black magic CPU? Will my temps get lower the higher I clock? It's ridiculous, no joke.
I use real temp GT but that's probably not the problem

  1. temps wont generally rise unless you add more voltage.
  2. I am also getting a strange occurrence.
    99% load: 50c
    100% load: 80c
    This normal too!?

    Well my temps got lower when I added more voltage to the CPU. Stock which is around like 1.1v got to 80c
    4.2GHz around 1.32v got around 75c

    Seems like bad software, use CoreTemp. Very good.
  5. if your using the stock cooler id recommand you change it for less noice and better cooling performance and system temps

    oh alright id remove the cooler. remove the thermalpaste with 80% rubbing alcohol. reapply thermal paste and secure the cooler again should fix ur problem

    Ooops I accidentally picked this as the good answer but I already did that and still. Temps were high. I might plan on delidding but I don't rely on that
