I5-3570k overclocking + overheating issues

Hi there,
im fairly new to overclocking my desktop. But before i start overclocking i have a few issues on hand. Seems that my CPU is running on rather high temperature as running a stress test at 3.8ghz with 100 frequency causes my CPU to shoot over a 100 degrees. Running at idle conditions it hovers around 30-55 degrees. I have tried to under-volt my CPU but temperature is run on a fairly high 90+ degrees.

Any help would be appreciated (:


Here's a view of my comp's specs.

MOBO: Asus P8Z77-V
CPU: i5-3570k
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper T4
Ram: 12GB 1600
Hard Drive: 240GB Corsair GTX SSD

  1. Seems like maybe your cpu cooler is either not seated properly, or maybe you applied too much thermal paste? Have you tried reapplying?
