    i7 4790K high temps on MSI Gaming 3 Z97 Motherboard Need help with the XTU.


      I have changed from an I5 4690k to an I7 4790k and having issue with the high temps when I am rendering or using stress test applications as the temps seems to be too high than normal at 70'c to 80'c


      Before getting the i7 4790k, My i5 4690k was fine with temps but i cleared the CMOS before installing the i7 4790k


      I would like to make this clear that I have reapplied thermal paste, reseated the Corsair h100i, cleared the cmos and updated to the latest BIOS but didn't solve anything.


      I did have a look at this forum Troubleshooting Intel® Core™ i7-4790K / i5-4690K overheating but I am not sure how to adjust the setting to match the correct BIOS setting of my MSI Gaming 3 Z97 Motherboard of the Intel specification.


      Can someone please guide me how to apply the settings?
