I've just done a quite 60 Second test on my CPU Cores and they're reaching 90C by the end of the 60 Seconds... I only did 60 Seconds because I was scared I'd fry it... Is it normal for it to go that high at stock clock & Cooling? I Know Ivy bridge get really hot. But that hot?

Also. I don't have a GPU yet . So i'm Using Integrated Graphics. I don't think that could possibly be the problem. On idle both cores stand on 30-40C

It seems to me a bad installation when you installed the cpu on motherboard??
Are you using stock cooler??
which thermal paste are you using??

I installed it yesterday. How could I install it wrong? I am using the stock Cooler and stock Thermal paste until I can get my hands on some of it.

its a push pin design, they are notoriously liable to be installed wrong, each pin should be rock steady, so that pressure is being applied.

I'm going to Re-Install in that case.

Yes and since your reinstalling don't forget to clean off the old paste and apply new thermal paste.

Well basically... Don't install your fan the wrong way... Haha what a stupid mistake to make, Always install with the logo the way you'd read it funnily enough... I've ran some more tests and now I'm averaging 50-60 On heavy load. I installed the Fan the wrong way without thinking because that way I'd be able to connect it easier... But yeah , basically a noob mistake. Thanks anyways :)

If you ever plan on overclocking make sure you get a new cooler. The 212 Evo is a great budget friendly option, or the NH-D14 if you're looking to spend a bit more for best in class.
