Any body know what kind of settings I should have on for this i3-3225 sandy to stop heating so much. It automatically starts at low 70s then within an hours time 100s. I had it fine for about a month that's when it would automatically turn off due to overheating, it fried something in the mobo so I had to get a new H77 MVP/Pro (ASRock). Currently don't have the shitty stock cooler on it - the one the cpu came with because I just didn't know if it would just hurt it more. I have plenty of fans inside the rest of the computer is at a cool 30.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

RECEMENT the heatsink...NO WAY it should idle at 70....
All the best Brett
Installed it, giving it an hour and seeing how well the temperature changes. BTW there are arrows on the sink/fan plugs to the mobo. Should I turn them in the direction they are going to lock? Or what are the arrows for?
