Is there something wrong with my CPU? Intel 4690k

I have recently installed a new Intel Core i5 4690k. It is having much higher temps then my previous processor though (4670k) i didn't have a OC on either. With my current CPU the idle temps are normal and fine, but when I try to run a game it gets very hot 60-80 degrees Celsius. Therefore i haven't played games very much yet. Is my best bet to get a Cooler Master 212 Evo? or do you think something is actually wrong with my CPU thanks!

PS-
Yes I cleaned and applied thermal paste.
Yes I made sure my stock Intel fan was installed correctly.

    your cpu is fine and the temps you have given are not that bad under load...and yes its best to buy an aftermarket cooler like 212 evo ....
  2. Agree^ With the stock cooler that is about the best you are going to get. If you want lower temps then yes I would look into a aftermarket cooler. The Cooler Master 212 EVO would do you just fine.
