    4790k box cooler - thermal throttling

    User456

      Guys, idk what to do, my cpu is thermal throttling with default bios settings using a box cooler. I found this topic, ( Troubleshooting Intel® Core™ i7-4790K / i5-4690K overheating ) but I did not find answer for my problem there.

      I am worried about using AVX which will increase temps much much higher. My mobo is maximus vi hero with the newest bios.

       

      It is sightly overheating, cooler is well placed. Do I have to RMA it?

       

      I also tried to reseat cooler and use a noctua thermal paste instead the original.
