Hey guys

I have got my build up and running but I am concerned about the temps and speed of my CPU

I have an i7 3770k with stock heatsink.

Heres a pic of coretemp and CPU-Z while running prime95.



I would like to know if these temps are okay and I dont know if my CPU is overclocked or not.
I might upgrade CPU fan soo though

Thanks :D

Your idle temps are good but your load temps are bad (60oC difference), apparently your CPU is overclocked either 700MHz or 300MHz (from turbo boost speed).

I would get a after market cooler for ivy bridges, they aren't as cool as sandy bridges.

Stock heatsink might not be enough running Prime so what is it on normal load? As said above if you are overclocking it you will need an after market cooler.

Normal load, as in gaming and stuff?

Around 50 degrees
