Hello. I just owned the 4790k and with the stock cooler, it stays 35-40 C in idle but when I doing Intel Extreme Tuning Utility's stress test, the printscreen is this:

I just bought a Seidon 120V Plus, in 3 days it will came but is this normal with the stock cooler? My mb is Gigabyte Z97N-WIFI. I downgraded the CPU Vcore to 1.120 v but it's still the same.

You are seeing 4.1Ghz. With the stock cooler, thermal overload protection keeps throttling the CPU back at 100C.

It seems normal (although I'd not ever have tried this with a Stock cooler since I don't like running my CPU at that temperature.

I went to the service. They fitted the stock cooler in turned other position. The problem is solved, Intel Extreme Tuning Utility stress test is in max. 78 C now. Thanks.
