    I7 4771 cooling


      I just replaced my motherboard and cpu and this is the first time I've ever had an intel cpu. I was immediately alarmed by how quiet my entire computer was even under heavy load. I decided to do a stress test and monitor my temps and they as soon as I began a stress test on prime95 they went from 23-30 to 70-80 in a matter of seconds. before I upgraded I could clearly hear my fans kicking in when the workload increased but now my entire computer is as quiet as a laptop even with 100% load on all 4 cores. the cpu is going over the maximum safe temp by a few degrees and the fans stay quiet, I have no idea if this is normal or not since I've never had intel hardware before. should I be concerned about 76-80 degrees during full load?
