Core i5 heat problem...

Last response: in Overclocking

I have Intel i5, and I have heat problems... I'm using the intel stock cooler...(for now)

On ideal the temps are 47c, and on load it goes up to 80c and more... till I get sudden shutdown...
I replaced the paste and got to 47c (It was 52c)

All my test were done with the case open, closing the case caused a raise of 10c...

I can't play games, and can't stress the CPU... what to do??!?!? anyone?

Well, it's pretty obvious, buy an aftermarket cooler. $20-30 if you don't want to OC too much $50-70 if you want a good one.

OK, I've found the problem...
I have a 1600MHz memory from GSkill and the Motherboard from GigaByte that doesn't supprt 1600MHz by default. so the store had to tweek the BIOS settings so they had to speed it up, speeding the CPU caused it to worm so much...

They changed the BIOS setting to work with the memory in 1333MHz speed, and the CPU speed was also increased (again) but didn't caused it to worm...

I don't understand overclocking so much, but it seems that the CPU speed is the same now (About 2770MHz) and the memory on 1333MHz, and it doesn't make it worm, something with multipliers, BUS Speed etc.
