Hey everyone just put a new i7 6700k in my system and noticed that when I rendered a video the temps jumped to 100C. In idle they are anywhere from 29C-38C. Is it running hot?? I feel like it shouldn't do this.

I am running the Coolermaster Seidon 120V as a cooler and it worked really well for my 4790k which was at a 4.5 ghz overclock.

Right Its mounted right and the idle temps are good. I am more worried about load temps.
 


Your load temps suggest it isn't mounted right or one of the connections isn't right.

At 100C your PC should have hit the thermal wall and shut down.

Would it be that the temperature monitor is bad? I am using the MSI Afterburner software.
