Your temps will probably never reach those temps under real world conditions. Anything under 75-80 C is ok for stress testing with the 2500K m 0 l Bigmac80 a b K Overclocking April 19, 2011 2:20:55 AM Those temps are ok for the cooler master 212 plus...do you only have 1 fan on the heatsink? if not it'll drop the temps a bit more if you add a 2nd fan...I get around around between 50-60c on prime 95 torture test... my setup: i5 2500k 4.2ghz 1.210volts MSI P67A GD65 Motherboard Prolimatech Armageddon heatsink 2 140mm 80cfm Gelid fans in push pull setup. I'm also thinking of going back to stock settings because i don't notice the difference while gaming between 3.3ghz and 4.2ghz... But if you don't have a 2nd fan i suggest you get a 2nd one it'll drop the temps by atleast 5c if not more in some cases... m 0 l Related resources i5 4670K & CM Hyper 212 EVO Temperatures Seem High - Forum I5 2500k not oc with cooler master 212 high temperatures - Forum I5 2500k + hyper 212 evo too high temps - Forum I5 2500k temps with hyper 212+ too high? - Forum I5 2500k temperatures too high? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
