Default i3770k Temperature help

Hi, I recently build a new rig. Spent quite some cash on it. Everything seems to be running perfectly fine. However, just want to be safe about my cpu temperatures.

CPU is an i3770k. I have not overclocked it and I think it has turbo-boost auto enabled if that's needed to be known.. Usually at idle my temps are as shown below, is this considered safe or normal? I have seen many users of i3770k claim their temps are like 28-30(C) at idle, how come mine is already total of 38(C) at idle?



Also when I game such as playing bf3 @ ultra on 1680x1050 64 players., the 4 cores can go up to 58(c), 60(c), 61(c), 57(c) for example in no order.. is this also considered ok for load temperature? I really am afraid I may over heat my cpu and sometimes do game long.

I am using a CPU cooler which is the Cooler Master RR-T812-24PK-R1 TPC 812 Vapour Chamber, is this ok for the cpu and can it control its heat well? Not really a tech genius here in terms of monitoring my hardware. Your help is really appriecated,thanks!

I have the same cpu and cooler as you. Let me check what my temps are tonight when I get home and I'll post them for you. In the meantime you could remount your cooler, making sure to apply just a small cooked grain of rice sized blob in the centre of the chip.

edit: your temps seem a little bit warm for stock speeds, but they are safe. You should be able reduce them though.

Hi guys thanks for both of your replies. I am using a cooler master HAF 932 casing with 3 fans running.
In what way could I reduce the temp? As for the rice grain suggestion I think it would not be possible for me to do that as I have no clue on fixing my hardware, asked a friend for help. Could you also share what settings you changed to over clock to 4.6ghz or tell me a guide as I am really new to oc'ing. I would love to try it out as well just to see my temps. Kind of disappointed that with a cpu cooler the temps are still high without oc.

Thanks much appreciated

If you don't know how to change your thermal paste I really don't suggest overclocking.

If that's the case I think I wouldn't overclock then. It seems strange that even with a cpu cooler and a big casing I am having high temps on idle.. Were the parts not fit properly?

Are you able to provide a picture of the inside of your case so we can see how your case fans and TPC-812 are configured?
