High temps using Corsair H60 unit!!!

Hi, I am currently running core i5 2500k @ 4.5GHz at 1.34v and while running intel burn test I reach up to 80C and the idle is around 45-50. My ambient temp is around 23c-25c so you guys think this are the correct temps for this cooling unit or there is something wrong.

As for the H60 it is running how it should at full pump speed so i duno if its just me or the temps are little too high. I tested with a cheap 15 pound heat sink and fan I was getting the same temp so what real advantage is this achieving

Change the Stock fans to aftermarket fans with better speed push /pull you should see better temps and check your alightment on the heatsink of the pump

At that voltage and frequency, those temps are probably about right on IBZT from what I have heard of the H60. What version of IBT (prob has AVX which will really heat up your CPU)?

I have two fans installed on it and they both decent fans not stock and they are exhausting the air out. As for IBT I am running version 2.54 on standard settings and please note that during normal use such as intense gaming it does around 60-70 depending on ambient temps. As I am living in the UK the ambient temps don't rack up to 25 or above all the time so today this morning the ambient is around 20 and the max temp using IBT came to core 0 63, core 1 74, core 2 74 and core 3 75. I duno why that first core run at good temps not the others.

That sounds a bit high to me.....how old is the H60? is it worth rechecking the thermal paste?

Which software are you using to monitor temperature? Try HWInfo as per this link:

CPU - Stress Test Using IntelBurnTest

Its a new system so the CPU and the H60 are brand new and I am using HWinfo to check my temperatures.

The stock fan is designed for high pressure , best to have 2 of the corsair fans.
Ideally, you want to blow into the case, so you get the cooler outside air to flow across the radiator.

My 3770k @ 4.4ghz hits 70* with prime95. I'm using the stock fan and one another I happened to have lying around.
