    Is my 4790k defective? Insanely hot temperatures at stock speed + Noctua cooler

      Hey guys,

       

       

      I just got a new 4790k and am getting some really awful temperatures at *stock* speeds.

      Using the latest Prime95 blend test, my temps will break 98C!!!

      I've remounted the HSF and reapplied the thermal paste multiple times and have installed these countless times in the past without issue so it's not a mounting problem.

      I'm using a Noctua D-14 HSF with my case fans loudly blowing a ton of air through the case...
