3570k getting very hot? Tags: CPUs Cooling Thermal Compound Product Last response: December 14, 2012 5:19 AM in CPUs Share rewben2 December 14, 2012 3:08:09 AM I just installed my 3570k with stock cooling, all the fans are correctly operating but it's running at 37-40~ during idle and it hit 68 degrees on all cores only a few minutes after running prime95. What should I do? Undervolt my cpu so it's cooler? Get new thermal paste? Turn my cpu fan speed up? HELP! I also don't have much money to spare.
