Hello Guys,

My Spec

i7 3770 3.4Ghz
AIGO RGB CPU Cooler ( Not a copper One)
16GB DDR3 1600
1TB Seagate HDD
GTX 970 Strix
Asrock B75M r2.0
Antec 550W PSU

I got this processor today (Its Pre Owned ), In processor ( at the middle Box Part ) 2 small middle pin ( or maybe circuit ) missing.. But Processor Working Fine..
Is This Will Be an Issue?
I stress tested My CPU with Prime95. Temps Goes to 95C
Idle 39C to 47C
When Gaming 80C to 85C
When Video Encoding 84C
If I Upgrade my cooler to hyper 212, will it reduce my cpu temp?
Help Me Guys
Thank You

(SORRY FOR MY BAD ENGLISH)

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

Are you referring to the CPU socket on the motherboard or the CPU's underside? Might want to include images of what you're seeing.

Include images of your build as well. Including a link to the AIGO AIO you're working with. You forgot to mention the make and model of your case as well.

I would return the cpu as defective.
No telling what function those capacitors might be protecting.

On cooling, downdraft coolers like the one you linked are not very effective.
Yes, a hyper212 would cool better.
But, there are better choices. I found hyper212 difficult to mount properly.
Such a cooler needs 160mm to be able to mount.

Golden Field Single Fan Liquid Cooler and Hyper 212 RGB are same price in my country.. is liquid cooling worth for 3rd gen cpu?
