Intel 2500k Temps With Hyper Evo 212

Hi guys.
I recently put together my new machine and ran my first stress test with Prime95(default settings) and I'm not sure if my temps are normal or not.

Here are the temps:
Ambient Temperature: 28c
Core 1: 54c
Core 2: 58c
Core 3: 55c
Core 4: 55c
Load 100%
100.33 x 34
Core Voltage 1.200 V

My System:
Case: Corsair 600t Graphite SE White
Mobo: P8z68-v Pro Gen3
CPU Intel 2500k (stock speed, selected standard in bios, no tweaks)
RAM: 8gb Corsair Vengeance 1600 cl9
Cooler: CM 212 Hyper Evo

I put this system together with the intention of running the CPU at 4.5ghz full-time.
Please let me know if these temperatures are acceptable for 3.4ghz on a 2500k.

I forgot to mention that my fan is pulling only, I had read that you get better results like that instead of having a push fan.

Looks pretty good to me. You should be able to hit 4.5Ghz easily as long as you don't go crazy on the voltage.

You should also buy another fan for push pull. Though your voltage seems high for a stock i5-2500k.

Nope, that standard voltage. My 2500k goes up to 1.22v.

Your ambient temps are kinda high. That always affects cooling performance.

Try it with the fan the other way around and see if you DO get better results. Im thinking you will.
The MFGR could have suggested running it the way you have it now - but there is probably a reason they didn't.

Yep, those temps look fine. I have about 8-10C higher temps (66C on the hottest core) at 4.5 @ 1.280V (load) with my 212 Evo at 23C ambient, just for a comparison.

I keep thinking about the 2600k, even though I also own a 2500k rig :/  2600k runs at 1.1v stock.

Wow! That is really good! I wonder why that is so much different that the average Sandy Bridge.

Actually those voltages are quite high for stock. That's most likely because you have it set to auto. I promise you if you set it manually to around 1.09 - 1.15 v you will be stable and have lower temperatures.
