Is my CPU too hot?

I'm not familiar with the 4770k but I would say that's hot for stock clocks on a hyper 212 but its not damaging.

Sounds like you used too much thermal paste, have bad heat sink/IHS contact, mounted it wrong and induced air bubbles, or the new fan pushes less air through the heat sink. Could be a combination of the above.

Tighter fin arrangements usually do better with higher pressure fans, looser arrangements tend to favour higher airflow.

You get into the 70s and are worried? Hell when I video edit and its using 100% of my CPU it goes up to like 90 C and I don't break a sweat.


And it'll probably die a premature heat death.

I installed a new fan today and it's even worse. Just sitting on the main menu of Crysis 2, my temp is 67-72. My case has very good airflow and I applied the thermal grease according to the instructions. What should I do?


Well first, I would panic and throw my hands up in the air, and run around in circles.

It only gets to 90 after being at 100% in all cores for like 5+ min. I doubt its avoidable to keep it much lower without spending a ton of money.

The odd thing is that the idle temps are in the mid-thirties, much better than my other fan which hovered around 45 idling.

And your processor will probably die a premature heat death because of it.
That's, like, 13c past what you should use as a maximum sustained temperature.

My 4670K regularly hits 80c during gaming sessions. I should probably upgrade from this crappy Hyper T4 considering that the max safe temp for Haswell is 74...

That sounds on the hot side for that cooler. I struggled to break 65c in the middle of summer on my 3570k and that was after I OC'd it to 4.4GHz
