I got a new cooler master tx3i to replace my i7 3770's stock cooler yesterday. I am noticing when i open up chrome or steam, until the process is complete, my temps go up to a point where my cpu speeds up the fans for 2-3 seconds. It has gotten very annoying. I idle around 35-40 and it goes to 75-ish under full load. Though, prime95 managed to bring it up to 95 itself. I am sure i applied the thermal paste correct, i used the pea method and it's covering a very sizable portion of the cpu.
I am kinda lost because i have no experience with coolers. Everything looks okay after a quick exam but it obviously isn't.
I know my hdd is faulty as it bottlenecks with every small task (Disk at %100), could that be the reason?
Intel i7 3770 (non k)
Strix r9 380
8 gigs of Ram
Edit: Checked what's going on in OCCT. The temp really quickly reaches 55ish levels and then the fans fasten. I decided to play modded minecraft and the cpu usage was at %100 and the fans were not maxed but loud the entire time. I don't know if minecraft used %100 for me before because i never checked, but it sure as hell didn't speed up my fans this much with my stock cooler
