I put together my system and the CPU is hitting temps as high as 77 degrees when even just web browsing. I've got into the BIOS and set all fans to max and even changed the power management to allow the CPU to run only at a max of 10% and the temperature idles at 50-56 degrees. I removed the heatsink and applied Arctic MX-4 thermal paste and still no change. I'm about to buy a Cooler Master Hyper 212 but I'd like to know if these kinds of temps are normal for this chip and if not any idea why. Also I have two case fans, one being a 120MM mounted on the side directly across from the heat sink. Thanks!
