NOT OC - but overheating doesnt have a forum :P

So I'm not OC'ing my setup, but it's running hot, and I figure the OC guys know the most about watching/monitoring/adjusting temps.

So my stock i7 sandy 2600K runs fine sits between 30-35 even when playing any game, there's no issue at all, except under a stress test it gets up to 75 even 80 (at which point i just cancel the test)

I've put a coolermaster 212 plus on it, stock cooler I could maybe see temps that high (although still a little high) - but with the aftermaket heat sink I feel like maybe I installed it incorrectly somehow? Unless theres another thing I could check.

For the record I did pull it all back apart, verify everything step by step all over again, starting with step 1 made sure everything was securely fastened etc, made no change on another stress test afterward...

Thanks for any help
