What is a too high temp for i5 4670k?

I am wondering what is a too high temp, i only have a stock cooler, but im looking at a corsair watercooling, but my CPU gets to 82c max. Is that too high? its only that for when i am rendering a video - like maybe anywhere from 20 minutes to a hour.

    haswell cpu has a bit more power consumption compared to ivy bridge but max temp for 4670k is more than 90C.I'd recommend getting the coarser hydro sries copper collers or cooler master seidon copper coolers

    alright, i just rendered out a video, which took 1 hour and the highest temp it got to was 87c, and it was around 83c most of the time.

    So get the watercooling stuff quickly for securing your cpu

  5. Get the H60 hydro series and you will see a decrease in temperatures. Get the Evo 212 and you see even cooler temperatures. You certainly need an after market CPU cooler as 82c is too high and way to near the TJ Max. It all comes down to personal preference if you like air cooling and don't want that possibility of a water cooler busting up then get the Hyper evo 212 or the Noctua NH-D14, if you want the idea of a quiet and cool system get a liquid cooler.
  6. Will u please inform me with your budget for the aftermarket cooler

    Yes best aftermarket cooler better than the H40
  8. You should get the Evo 212, it performs as good as the H60 which is $15 more.
