Not good..

Hi guys, recently my CPU has started to idle at around 86 degrees. Im running a 4770k at stock speeds... Really not happy with whats going on here as i feel somethings going to go bust soon... Any ideas?

Check your CPU cooler. Also, are you sure you're not looking at Fahrenheit readings? I know you're in the UK but.

and if you take the cooler off the chip, make sure to thoroughly clean the mating surface of the cooler w rubbing alcohol to get all the old TIM off, same with the top of the chip, then re apply with QUALITY thermal paste - prospor

Yes, it happened to me once and i was freaking out, but then i realized it was fahrenheit. It's not very likely that this happens but maybe it moved so try removing it and placing it again

Check to see if it's in Fareheight (I'm in the US so degrees F is normal, I'm getting 126 degrees on my CPU ATM), then try different software, and if that doesn't work remount the cooler.

OP, are you confusing Celcius with Farenheit?

 

Also, try another program.

 

RealTemp

Open Hardware Monitor

 

And on a final note, is your the fan on your cooler still spinning?

Check what BIOS says too. And if you want to take the real world test, run some semi-heavy software like some game and see how that temps goes. If you see over 110 temp reading, its gotta be Fahrenheit.

If it's not farenheit then the heatsink probably isn't making proper contact with the cpu.  Did you remove it recently?  If so when you reinstalled did you put new thermal paste on?
