Hey guys sorry I have not posted here before if i am wrong by doing so i apologize.
I built my system not to long ago I5-2500K Corsair vengeance 2x4 1600mhz Asus P8z68-V Pro Gen3 Gtx 660 Coolermaster HAF 912 Coolermaster silent pro 850W
The problem im having is my cpu overheating. I ran prime95 and my cpu hit 201 degrees Fahrenheit which i can understand. But i when i play simple games like counter strike im at 145-165 degrees Fahrenheit. Cpu intense games like Sniper ghost warrior and arma run smoothly but still my cpu is at about the same temp.
Shed some light on the situation?

what CPU cooler are you using ?
Are you using the stock cooler that came with the cpu? Is so, then it sounds like it's time to invest in an aftermarket cooler that will take better care of your cpu.
I like this cooler. It keeps temps in the 30's even under heavy load, and is a snap to install. Also, don't be thrown by the name, it fits 1155 cpus also.
