I am running Prime95 and I am getting the following temperatures

Core0 92c
Core1 97C
Core 95C
Core 92C

I have an Intel I6 2700k 3.5ghz (not overclocked) with a H100 Liquid Cooling.

Is this normal after one minute of running Prime95?

Thanks in advance!! My first built computer and I am learning

maybe u not fastened the cooler on right? maybe u put to much thermal paste on? not enough cooling i would try taking off the pump and fasten it back on again. do u have the computer in a cupboard?

I noticed in my BIOS it was set to Power Saving Profile, so I changed this to normal.
I also changed my fan settings from silent mode to ultra and it seems to have helped.

This is my idle speed

At full load I am now hitting 50celcius and roughly 70 on the cores compared to the 90 before.

Is this still an acceptable level?
