I5-3570K hitting 105C w/no OC Tags: CPUs Battlefield Heat Core Temp ASrock Intel i5 Last response: November 30, 2012 3:48 PM in CPUs Share TokyoTom November 30, 2012 1:35:15 PM I just upgraded to a i5-3570K and ASRock Z77 Extreme 6. For now I'm using the stock heat sink and have not overclocked the machine yet. I did a 10 minute BF3 test run and checked my temps via Core Temp and saw that all four cores are hitting 105 degrees C. At idle I fluctuate between 32 -36 degrees. Any idea why the temps are so high straight out of the box?

Might want to crank it up there if the RPMs stay low. If you set a target of like 60C it will spin up to it's max to try and keep it there once you put it under load. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
