Intel i7 3770 overheat problems

so i just build a new pc
stats are
i7 3770
corasir 8 gig ram
ati 6950
asus p8z77-lk motherboard
corasir 750 watt psu

my cpu on stock heat sink runs idle at around 40-50 degrees and on games like battlefields it heats up fast to around 60-75 degrees, i have not overclocked the processor. was wondering if there was anything i've done wrong when building the pc,
any advice or help would be greatly appreciated

    Don't worry If the CPU not more than 77W because i7 3770 supports max 77W temperature, But if it go further then contact with vendor. Re-adjust the heat-sink first.

  4. Everything is fine. 3770 has max temp of 105c. As long as max load temps are below 85c you will not have any CPU degradation for a 24/7 use.
  5. plus its an ivy bridge so it will run a bit hotter than the sandy bridges as some reviews on toms also suggest, but just like swolern says it has a max temp of 105C.

    One thing though, intel suggests that full load temps for most core processors must be below 75 C...I know this for sandy bridges but may stand corrected

    Yes IB has been proven to be more heat resistant than SB. http://www.overclock.net/t/1247413/ivy-bridge-overclocking-guide-with-ln2-guide-at-the-end

    Great guide if you want to OC later.

    would a aftermarket heatsink help me lower the temps

    Did u reply to yourself? LOL. Yes aftermarket cooling is better than stock cooling.
