I5 3570K Temperatures

I've had an i5 3570k processor for around 3 months now and I am starting to become quite worried with the temperatures. While running Prime95, the CPU temperature will reach around 50-55C whereas Core 0, 1, 2 and 3 will reach around 80-85C. I have an Arctic Cooling Freezer Xtreme Rev.2 CPU Cooler installed. I think that I might have installed it incorrectly because other people with this cooler can run this processor with the core temps only reaching around 60C at clocks of around 4.2 GHz. I am only running at a max of 3.8 GHz.

  1. in may not be the cooler fault. check the core voltage that the mb has set it may be close to the cpu max voltage. if it is try setting it lower. lower voltage will be less heat from the cpu cores.
  2. Vcore voltage is currently at 1.2v and I've tried downclocking it to try to reduce the temperatures but to no avail...
  3. If you think you didn't install it correctly, remove it, clean it & the processor of thermal paste, put fresh paste on the CPU, and then sit the heatsink onto the processor, following the instructions it comes with and make sure it's all the way down, with pressure on the CPU's heat spreader.
