Question

prime 95 temps seem high

i just wanted to test prime 95 on my 4790k,i have a corsair h80i....i have a push pull on the fans,they were running at roundabouts 2600 rpm,i ran it for 15 mins,i didn't shutdown....but my temps were running 96-100 Celsius,and i DID make sure i cleaned and reapplied TIM(used artic silver,not too much,about a 3/4 inch line in the middle) and the cooler and cpu have a solid contact....what would be another reason that the temps are high like that? is it the corsair 80 cant handle it? I've read that temps should run under 70 Celsius to be acceptable,and i didn't manually overclock,i do though in BIOS have it set for optimum performance(asus z97 ar) so usually i see 4.4 to 4.6 ghz.
Any thoughts?

Now we need to now the Delta T(empature)

To see if the temp is out of whack I need to measure the air temp around the CPU.

What is Delta T?

Still makes you wonder.

While it's nice a new version runs cooler it still points to future over heats. If you don't know the Delta T, then you left it open to some game that the CPU will climb that high again. Your choice to know this to the T.

I use an indoor outdoor themometer.

The outdoor probe is placed in the air where I want the reading. Be aware that the temps you are getting can be off. Let's say 10% or more.
