Cpu overheating

i am having problem with my cpu

E5700 at 3.0 GHz with stock cooling

at idle the cores show these temps(measured with hwmonitor)

core 0 38 C
core 1 36 C

my room temp is around 28 to 32 C.

now the problem is when only playing video in youtube the temp goes upto 55-56 C and while playing games it goes up to
75-77 C in core 0 and 68-70 core 1 which is way over danger zone.

I ran prime95 and temp shoots up to 78 in about 5-6 minutes.

so i took the HSF ,cleaned it up and placed it again firmly(HSF doesn't wiggle a bit) but nothing changed. whenever i play games temp is around 74-75 C.

so what should i do next? checked other forums and threads but they all said to clean the HSF and place it firmly and properly(even applied thermal paste no luck :( )

i am using a crappy thermaltake V3 with only the rear exhaust fan that comes with the case(rpm around 1750)

and cpu fan around 2400 to 2870 rpm depending on load condition.

( checked the task manager no background program only running hwmonitor and firefox and writing this and temp is hovering at 53-58 C at core 0 and 47-55 C at core 1)

and no oc and vcore is 1.3v

thanks in advance :)

  1. Thats normal. My i5 2500k runs at 85 degrees with stock cooling. I dont use stock cooling, mind you, but the lesson is that its fine. I've seen a 24 hour prime 95 run at 101 degrees on a first gen i7.
  2. To get the temps down, you could buy a Frezzer Pro 13 that uses the normal push-pin mounting system or if for the best, remove the motherboard and fit a Hyper 212 EVO, both should cost £25-£30.

    I have the older Hyper 212+ on a E5400 overclocked to 3.6Ghz playing 1080 movies and the cpu fan never goes over 800rpm.

    max. allowed temp for E5700 is 74.1 C (intel website)
    that is my concern :??:

    a hyper 212 costs about 65 usd in my country :ouch: ( believe it or not)

    so don't you think it is absurd to use a $65 cooler on a $64 cpu? :heink:
