Hello everyone I just bought a system not to long ago my Intel i5 3570k with G1 Sniper m3 motherboard & I have been getting heat problems with stock heatsink that came with it temps was getting at 69 when gaming on battlefield 3!!!!! I come across todayy when I got new internet service I look at my pc & messed with heatsink one of them was not snapped in all the way for some reason is this good or bad on my cpu right now??? I have been running the cpu for bout over a week now... Will I be ok or whatt?
the exact same thing happened to me and my went all the way up to 100 c. youll be fine just the heatsink out and put it back it to make sure all the pins are down and snapped. if one isnt snapped then the heatsink isnt making enough contact causing high temperatures
