I5 3570k temp and stress test?

Hello I just put together one of my first builds with a i5 3570k hyper 212 evo and a gigabyte z77x d3h. What should I do to make sure I did everything right? I downloaded hwmonitor and these are my temps.
Core#0 Value=33c Min=24c Max=44c
Core#1 Value=32c min=28c max=49c
core#2 value=33c min=25c max=47c
core#3 value=34c min=29c max=50c
Package value=36c min=30c max=50c
I also downloaded prime95 but not sure how to use it. I started a blend test for around 15 min but not sure how long I should run it. Do you have to stop it manually or does it run for a period of time. Also when I ran blend test cpu temps went to 59c. I haven't overclocked yet but I plan on. I also did a benchmark but not sure how to read it.

  1. let prime95 running for 4-5hours and see whats the max temp ur cpu gets.

    thats a good start to see ur max temps.

    Ok thank you. Should I run the blend test and will it stop itself or do I stop it?
  3. u run the cpu test or the blend test, just run it for a long time and than note maximum load temps :)
  4. I ran the blend test for about 4 hours and my cpu temps stayed around 58c 59c and never went above 61c. Is that good and is there any other tests I should do like benchmarking?
  5. Not bad, especially if you overclocked. I think Geekbench is good & free but Idk if it's for Windows.

    I haven't overclocked yet is that still good?
  7. It's alright, how much thermal paste did you use? And what brand?

    I used a pea sized dot then spread it(I didn't know what technique to use dot or spread).Also when I put the heatsink on I had trouble with the mounting brackets so I had to take it back off for a sec then I just put it back on the paste I had already spread. Could that have messed it up? I used the paste that came with the hyper 212 evo.
  9. not bad keep it up thuglife
  10. Also how tight should the heatsink be? Because when I installed into case I noticed a slight shift not by much but I shifted it back.
