CPU: i5 760

GPU: MSI GTX 460 Hawk 1gb

Case: Coolermaster 912

Resolution: 1920 x 1080

Just got my new rig and installed L4D2. Perma fps with everything maxed in settings, then after about 30 mins of playtime. I stopped, took a break and checked temps:

I don't think that's normal... is it? Everything else usually runs cool at idle ( http://img801.imageshack.us/img801/5704/temps.gif )

CPU at idle: http://img836.imageshack.us/img836/6468/cpu.gif

I'm still using the stock intel fan, is it that bad? or is this because of Turbo mode? I tried to fraps in game for a few minutes to see what my fps would be like, related or no? I don't know why the temps were so high.

Somewhat off topic but, here's a great, relatively cheap after market heatsink.

Right now:

As you can see, it was pretty much always ~97c throughout the entire testing. I stopped it after 32 mins.

Room temp is about 21c, doesn't feel hot at all in here, it's rather cold imo. As you can see the rest of the pc is doing well.

About the stock cooler installation, well... it doesn't move, it seems to be in place just fine so I don't know what could be wrong. How to determinate if it's not properly installed?

I did it outside of the case too, and no, no restarts. I looked behind as well to see if it was properly attached and I think it is, when I tried to move the cooler with my hand to see if it moves it didn't so I thought that was fine, and I plugged into CPU_FAN.

In the HWMonitor screenshot above, FANIN0 was about at 2050 RPM (as you can see 2096 is the max RPM it hit), maybe that's too low? I don't know where the problem is.

PSU is OCZ StealthXStream 2 600W

I just ran the test again to check and the +12v voltage seems to jump a lot, anywhere between 14.34v to 16v, so this isn't normal? I'm not too familiar with the bios so I'm not sure where this would be... the motherboard is a Gigabyte P55A-UD3. Could that be the reason?

Here's my temps under load with a simulated i5(stock heatsink, AS5 TIM), I didn't let it heat up all the way, but it only gets a few degrees hotter:

So with the heatsink on right, you would be getting good enough temps, this is with a 25C ambient(and a case that hasn't been cleaned out in awhile).

Also, those voltages seem very unstable, mine are rock solid at all times. Hopefully that doesn't cause any problems.

@ sportsfanboy: Nah, they're about the same. They drop between 1~4c in the 60s back and forth. The first screenshot was me pressing my not properly installed cooler and the second is properly installed, turns around 63-65c.

Edit:

@ Haserath: This is with the case upright and closed.
