I just started OCing my i5 2500k and whenever I run Prime95 my package temps jump right up to 80C and stay between 78-83C I have no idea why...I have two 120mm chasis fans and a CM Hyper 212 plus with arctic silver 5 thermal compund (All run at about 2000rpm)

I am trying to OC it to 4.5GHz, does anyone have any idea why my temps are so high?

Is it possible that too much thermal paste could be the cause for such a large heat issue?

Generally because it won't boot :-) or the O/s is unstable like you open a browser, the Cpu needs more power, if it isn't there for it the Bsod monkeys take over, clocking is a time investment to find the sweet spots on your parts, I think theres a Sb guide up top of this section though for some pointers
