85c is to hot in my opinion and so i'd definitely get the aftermarket cooler when funds allow. 70/75c is the most i'd want to see under full load.

A job well done and glad to hear that you are happy with how the build went  :thumbsup:

 

The maximum safe operating temp of the CPU is 72.72°C and so the computer should have shut down once it reached this (your cooling fan arrangement is spot on and internal cable management also looks good).

 

Couple of things for you to do;

 

Download and run IntelBurnTest 2.54 which you can obtain from here

 

Download Speedfan and install it.  Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows.  The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.

If you are running on a vista machine, please go to where you installed the program and run the program as administrator.

 (this is a screenshot from a vista machine)

 

 Download then run HWMonitor and post a screenshot so that we have a comparison to the Speedfan results, details from here

 

To capture and post a screenshot;

Click on the ALT key + PRT SCR key..its on the top row..right hand side..now click on start...all programs...accessories...paint....left click in the white area ...press CTRL + V...click on file...click on save...save it to your desktop...name it something related to the screen your capturing... BE SURE TO SAVE IT AS A .JPG ...otherwise it may be to big to upload... then after typing in any response you have... click on browse...desktop...find the screenshot..select it and click on the upload button...then on the lower left...after it says upload successful...click on add reply like you normally would.

 

Screenshot instructions are provided to assist those that may read this topic but are not yet aware of the “how to”.

No problem, terry or I will be around when you post back  :thumbsup:

 

Can I ask that when you next restart the computer you access the BIOS and make sure that the thermal shutdown setting is set below at least 70°C

ok I checked bios no settings to change shutdown temp. next I ran intelburn very scary computer got very hot without shutting down as you will see in pic. then I ran speedfan and hwmonitor here are the pics

Missing a lot of the HWMonitor information, can you provide individual expanded screenshots of HWMonitor + Speedfan and as detailed in my reply #36

temps and everything is fine at normal load, so i'd say your case cooling and build itself is good, the only problem is the stock heatsink is not up to the job of managing the temps when the cpu is stress tested at 100% load,

 

people rarely, if ever, run their cpu's at 100% load,

even when gaming i'd be very surprised if it got anywhere near that 100% load and reached those sort of temps again.

 

only time i can think of when the cpu is run under that much load, is when you run a distributed computing program like folding at home or are actually running a stress test program like prime 95 or some benchmarks.

 

i think thermal shutdown is 100C for intel cpu's

 

the only cure to keep the temps lower when cpu is stressed is to fit an aftermarket cooler.

 

run it as you normally would, keeping an eye on the temps, and i think you'll find your temps will never reach anywhere near those highs again.

of course personally i'd get the after marker cooler bought and fitted as soon as i was able. :D

Temps and voltages are fine and for your planned use you will only see an increase in these if you do decide to overclock the CPU.

 

FWIW the max TDP for CPUs differ and Intel state a maximum safe operating thermal temperature of 74.04°C for your CPU and CPU World peaked it at 72.72°C, see here and here

 

See how you go with the stock cooler under normal usage and if you do consider OCing the CPU check out the Intel OCers warranty.
