I just purchased a new gaming pc from argos it comes with a i5 9600k and liquid cooler . The odd thing is that the temperature is at 76 degrees and thats without gaming or stress testing . i was planning on overclocking but as soon i saw the temperature theres no chance.Any advise would be much appreciated .

its a pre built pc with the following specs

i5 9600k ( 77 degrees at 3.7 ghz)
rtx 2060 ( i replaced it with a rtx 2080)
16gb ram
cooler master liquid cooler .

The only possible issue i can think of there might be some wrappers that are still attached to the cooler etc . but will do a check now and keep it updated .

thanks
 
Wait, are you saying it is idle at 76 degrees? Because that is very bad and indicates a failure in your cooling system. Under load that isn't a horrible temp, but if that it idle you need to get on the phone right now with the seller because they done screwed up.

Will run another stress test tomorrow on prime 95 version 26.6 as this is best and accurate version for stress testing , as anything higher then that will eat more.

Got this from a different source

“While non-AVX version 26.6 is a true 100% workload, later versions such as 27.7 through 29.4 will overload any processor with AVX2 Instruction Sets to nearly 130%, which imposes a brutal workload beyond any other test utility. Moreover, users have reported abnormally high "Auto" or "Adaptive" Vcore that was corrected with a BIOS flash. High Vcore combined with AVX can increase power consumption by over 25%, which in turn can increase Core temperatures by an unrealistic 20°C higher than version 26.6.“
