I just bought and installed an i7 2600K CPU with a BIOSTAR TP67XE motherboard.
When I first started up the comp, I went into the bios and and said that my CPU was at 79C and it kept climbing (within minutes) to 90 degrees.
What is the normal temp for an i7 2600K? Is this normal?
I am still worried about the heatsink mounting. It was very weird to install and gave you no clue as to weather it was done correctly.
I just bought a aftermarket heatsink (will be here in a few days) because I planed on overclocking.
Are these temperatures normal? With the temperature rising so fast within the BIOS, do you think that is a good indicator that the heatsink wasn't mounted properly?
