I5 2500k 80ºC temp in torture test

Hi everyone
I recently buy a new i5 2500k processor
It's not OC and i'm using the stock cooler but temps i get after 4-5 minutes of a stress test (System Stability Test AIDA64 or Prime95) are past 80ºC. I think if i run the test more time temps will past 85ºC but i don't want to try it
Idle temps are 43-44º C

  1. Then don't run stress tests. Especially on the STOCK cooler. REMEMBER the stock cooler is minimal cooling, if you want better cooling and expandability for overclocking, you will buy a aftermarket cooler. The Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO is a good choice.

    Thanks for the advice :) Probably i buy the Hyper 212 EVO in the future
    However i've read many users having stock cooler with temps over 70ºC at max load (stress test i guess) and 35-37ºC idle which is quite less
    What do you think? Could that be a reason to return it?
  3. There is nothing wrong remember you won't get those temperatures during REAL WORLD Usage!
