Question Cpu i7 temp ok?

8700k did not come with stock cooler.
8700 did but was not very good.(nice words for the kiddies)
You may have a stock cooler but we do not know what CPU it came with.
Idle in bios is one thing when it comes to temps. But when you load it to 100% temps will skyrocket and the fan will get very loud.
The processor will down clock itself until the cooler can keep it at 100c +/- a few degrees.
It will not be good. (more nice words)

The math is a no brainer. The bigger the cpu, the bigger the cooler needs to be. That i7-8700k is as big as it got for that generation, it's not going to work out well using the stock cooling solutions, especially an intel E97375-003 which was built for the lower wattage i3/i5 cpus but often shipped with the i7-6700T/7700T/8700T. Never the i7 K cpus.

Thanks for looking up the part numbers on the cooler.
Now we know it definitely cant handle his CPU. IT WILL always be throttling under load.
