Hi there folks, new to this forum but I'm hoping someone can help me out. I recently built myself a new computer with a 3570k and went ahead and overclocked to 4.5GHz @ 1.225v and ran a few sweeps of prime. I noticed the temps immediately shot up to mid/high 80s. I am using a corsair h100i which I understood was a good cooler, so did I get a particularly bad or hot processor?
You run really hot, did you put thermal paste on your CPU when you had apply the cooler/pump assembly ??
PS: i get 80 on air @ 4.83ghz so you're really too hot for an H100i
the h100i came with pretty good thermal compound pre applied, but my only guess on why the temps are so high is that I didn't attach the block straight. I will buy some thermal paste and redo it and see if it helps. Thanks for the reply though
