Why is my haswell running this hot?

Just built out an i7-4770K on an ASUS Z87-Pro. Used Corsair H80i cooler. It has two Radeon 7750 cards. Front intake fan, rear intake fans on either side of the radiator, and two fans exhaust out of the top.

When I overclock this to 4.0GHz from the 3.5GHz stock, it pushes about 95 Celsius when doing a stress test that lasts about 5 minutes.

Now, I am running quiet mode on the H80i, but even when I change it to max fan, it will still max out about 85-90 celsius. This seems too hot to me for the minimal OC'ing I'm doing. The case is not streamlined on the inside really because there's just nowhere to put these cables (it's a Corsair 200R and not designed for extreme stuff), but I have zip-tied the cables and there seems to be decent airflow. 75 degrees I can understand--but 90?

When i installed the H80i, I did my best to ensure smooth, even contact with the CPU--the h80i came with thermal paste on it, and so this should not be an issue. I know haswells run hotter than their predecessors, but c'mon...

Any idea on what's going on here?

Take the case off and put a box fan blowing on it.

If it's cooler then the issue is exhaust.

I run my rigs on a custom tray (not a case) open air, easy to do work on and they are stackable.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

I've always thought about overclocking and water cooling but never gotten around to it; neon lights is as far as I've gone . Thought the water cooling would bring down the temp considerably. These are my temps with the stock i7-4770K:

What utility are you using that tracks all those temps?

This is an excellent question -- I'll check it when I get to the office tomorrow.. what conclusions would you draw in either scenario (whether it's relatively cool, or relatively hot)?

Good suggestion Mike -- unfortunately I can't run it open air, but I will do your fan experiment (probably this weekend) and report the results.

Thanks for the data -- good to see your core 1 is running warmer than core 4, as mine is as well and was curious as to whether this was an anomaly or not.

Maybe a bad contact between the rad and the cpu, bad or no thermic grease.
I setup for one of my kids friend a PC with the parts I was using 5 or 6 years ago, a dual Opteron dual cores, 2.4 Ghz. With basic rads the temp was around 72C during stress tests, which is very hot but normal according to this kind of old processors, fan type and case size, but 95C on an i7-4770k, something is wrong!

Like wrote previously, the good test to be done is to check the cpu and the mobo T with cpu idle, then with the stock frequency during a stress test, and then overclocked.
