    I just the other day did a new Core i5 Ivy Bridge Build and I'm a little concerned about the Temps and was wondering if anyone could help me out.

    The Build is as Follows:
    Lanboy Air Case
    GTX460
    Corei5 3570k Overclocked to 4.2ghz 1.25v
    8GB Patriot RAM
    Samsung 830 SSD
    Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

    My Temps are as Follows:
    33C at idle and around 80C full load with prime95

    It may also might be relevant to note that my room temp is around 27-30C. Sometimes its cooler but being that its summer it can get a lil warm.

    Thanks so much for any help in advance. Cheers :toast:

    First welcome to TPU! :)

    Considering ambient temp, load seems OK. These chips run a tad warm when OCd & volt increase. If you can get ambient down to 24c you should see a nice drop in load temps.

    Have you tried remounting the HSF and/or reapplying TIM?

    If temps bug you that much delidding looks easy enough :eek:

    Also these have a 105c tjmax IIRC so you have a ways to go before it starts to throttle itself ;)

    Thanks,
    I do plan on reapplying TIM and remounting the cooler tonight to see if maybe it was an application error. I knew the chips ran hot but I wasn't able to find an exact threshold number and i thought that a 50C jump was a little extreme.
    I Do have a little ways to go until i get into liquid Nitrogen.
    Thanks for all the Help.
    -Cheers

    Your temps look fine to me. If you didn't apply TIM correctly it wouldn't idle 33c. That cooler is great, but is a lot better if you add another 120mm fan for a push/pull. Just using 1x 120mm fan those temps seem fine. :toast: I would buy 2x 120mm fans > 80cfm and add a fan control to adjust fan speeds when not gaming. :toast:

    EDIT: I use 2x Scythe SY1225SL12SH 120mm "Slipstream"
