That's one hot CPU!!
Ok... So I got everything up and running on my new build, but... I was quite alarmed to see my CPU temp in the bios was running at 75 degrees celsius and climbing!! As far as I know that is way too hot! I'm running an i5-2500k and have not installed windows yet to verify these temp readings. I'm afraid that it will overheat. What temp should I start worrying and shut it down? What could I have done wrong or what can I double check that might be causing this?! Any advice or good articles on the subject would be great. And yes I'm running a stock cooler but even still it shouldn't be that hot.

It's impossible to say what you could have done wrong with such little info, are you using the stock cooler? Are you using a different thermal paste? What are the fan speed settings at in the BIOS?

While 75C isn't dangerously hot, I wouldn't want my CPU running at 75C+ 24/7

Your CPU had an overheating protection feature, which will make it slow down or in the worse case scenario, simply shut down, if it detects that it's running at too high a temperature.

In any case, I'd re-install your stock cooler, you probably didn't do it right.

Andrew: everything is stock and default settings.

After testing to make sure all the hardware worked I started looking through my bios info and that's when I noticed the high temp. My next move is to reinstall the heatsink and hopefully that will fix it. I was just wondering what else it could possibly be. It couldn't be a defect could it? Going by memory but I think my CPU fan rpm was in the 2000 range. I will defanitly be getting an aftermarket cooler at some point I just want to make sure I don't have defective parts. Also while I'm in the bios what do you think a normal temp range is? I mean is it considered to be in an "idle" state or is there some load on the CPU?

RE: That's one hot CPU!!
It depends mainly on the room temperature. Somewhere in the 30s or 40s C in the BIOS is usually normal.
