Crazy CPU Temps at stock clocks

I have an Intel 3770, Corsair 500R, GTX 660 Ti, Asus P8Z77 V Pro

On my stock cooler i got idle temps of 40C and load temps of 89C!
I re-installed the cooler with new thermal paste and temps were the same...

Then I bought a CM Hyper 212 EVO. The day i installed it i got idle temps of 30C and load temps of 60C
I week after that i get Idle temps of 40C and load temps of 68C!

Why is this happening???

If i run the cpu cooler speed at max the load temps go down to 58C but its too loud.
And when i first installed to cooler, the CPU used to run at 1.6GHz idle (Speedstep) now it runs at 2.8Ghz (even when speedstep is enabled.

The things ive done since i installed the cooler are :
Re-install windows ( I was attacked by a virus that made my cpu to run a 100% all the time)
Updated to latest BIOS.

How can i fix this? Id my processor faulty???

What are your voltages set at?

unlikely that the processor is faulty. You should check voltages as rds has suggested. If i remember it right, 1.4 is the absolute limit and ideally you should be placed at .9 -1.14 during idling and somewhere around 1.22-1.25 at load.

check that your cooler is seated & tightened properly, today swapped my cpu and idle temps went from 33c --> 42c ( ninja 3 ) had no idea what was wrong, then i tightened the screws and idle went to 35c

Your temps are fine and safe.

load is 1.104 and idie is 0.960

speed step is enabled, and C states?

SpeedStep is Enabled... What is C States?

I tightened all the screws and now idle temps are 34C and load temps and load temps are 59C

But people get even lower than that on 212 EVO. They get 45C on load...

well you seem to have achieved better temps. C states are cpu power states and enabling them will result in cpu suspending some of its functions while idling to consume as little power as possible. for instance C0 is a power state when cpu is non idle and all cpu level functions are available. there are C1(halt) and C1E (extended halt).

but you need not look into that now that your processor temps are good. C states are available in BIOS.

good luck
