Hi, I'm kinda new to overclocking and Aftermarket coolers and I'm just wondering if these temps sound right.

As in the title I have a i7-3770k running at 4.2ghz at stock voltage and I'm hitting 80c at full load in IBT. I know this is still within safe temperatures but I feel like it's a bit high for what I'm running it at. I know the ivy bridge chips ramp up heat pretty quick though.

The CM Hyper 212 evo is is push/pull with 2 CM blademaster 120mm fans, and I used artic silver 5 TIM.

Reapply thermal paste and maybe change your load line calibration?
