Hey guys I just finished my first build and powered it up and noticed my CPU temps were way to high. Specs: 2500k CPU, as rock pro4 mobo, hyper 212 evo, evo thermal paste, diablotek mid atx case.
The room temp is currently 75f. The CPU maxed out at roughly 85f before I turned it off out of fear and it appeared to still be climbing. Only thing I may have done wrong is use too much thermal paste. If you need pics no problem, thanks for the help.
Looks like he said 85 Fahrenheit. If its 85 Celsius, then you have an issue. Try cleaning out the paste and reapplying only a pea sized amount in the center. Other possibilities include a bad chip, poor airflow inside case, etc.
