Windows 7: My new i7 4790 is overheating at stock speed

Your temps at or above 80C at 1.03V in my opinion is way to high.

You don't add cooling because of the normal things one does on a computer. You put better cooling in a computer for the things one does above and beyond the normal things.
It's your computer; if you are happy with 80C at 1.038 vcore just leave the cooling as is.
I recommend protecting your investment with better cooling.

100% stress test is 75-80C @ 1.038v (back then 92C @ 1.228v/1.194v)
Rendering is about 66-74C @ 1.030v (then 86C @ 1.15v)

Well I don't stress test 24/7, I just did it for watching the temps. I think 65-70C while rendering at 90-100% processor load is pretty good for stock cooler and stuff. It only went 75C after 10 minutes of both converting and rendering a video at the same time plus watching videos (just for testing and it's 100% real load not maxed out full load).
Yes I'm happy with these temps. It starts to be unconfortable over 80C for me, but in the mid 70s and high 60s, it's perfect for rendering. I7 tjunction is 100C, it can handle high temps.
Btw my laptop for no reason (no I know because of dust and I solved that too with spraying compressed gas to the vents) in the last 2 years went to 100C while rendering and playing games and idled at 75C with cooling pad. Now it's back to normal idles at 50C and goes to 80C too when rendering. But it's been working fine for 4,5 years with those ultra high temps with 1st gen i7 so I don't see any problem with my low 70s temps. I don't think it would harm the system below 90C.

Vistangel I give you my opinion. I'm not going to argue about it.

If you like your temperatures that is fine with me.
Just mark the thread solved and enjoy your computer.

Oh I don't want to argue. I just said my opinion too. I like these temps I think these are perfect in my case so yeah the problem is solved for me maybe some people wouldn't like it and want lower temps but I like it.
One thing I don't understand is why the stock cooler is so bad for i7. I tried disabling Hyperthreading just to see how much performance I gain when it's enabled and the CPU went to 60C when rendering (so another 10C less). Maybe this cooler is good for a stock i5 but it's really on the edge for an i7 with Hyperthreading. I think people buy i7 for reasons so serious usage is expected.
And coil whine is gone with the lower voltage. Even at 100% rendering, it has no sound at all.
