1 x Intel Core i5-3570K 3.40GHz (Ivybridge) Socket LGA1155 Processor (77W) - Retail £184.99

so i bought them two but i decided ill try to use heatsink provided by intel :)]
and now is the problem!!
I runed pc and didnt noticed that cpu fan/sink didnt started I instaled my windows my motherboard and nvidia drivers and i restarted my pc . than I runned bios and I noticed that cpu fan speed is zero and cpu temp 96*C .I started moving cables on heat sink and the fan started( bended cable) and now question is did i did any dmg to my cpu ? now on that intel heat sink it runs around 40-50'C (bios) ofcourse ill replace heat sink today(order it today) but THE QUESTION IS:) -----> did I done any damage to my CPU already?

I think your CPU will be fine, The CPU will throttle when temps get high.

I've been using the Intel heatsink with my 3570k on that board since July. Temps vary from 30 - 50c depending on what I am doing.

It's perfectly normal for standard use but if you want to OC or change appearance of cooling then buying aftermarket is best, not sure £20 h/s will be any better than what you have though. I'd save up and get something a little better in a few weeks maybe

I hardly notice mine, but I know it is still the noisiest part of my rig.

Just waiting for the money to buy an aftermarket one myself, however I have RipJaws memory so need the high profile h/s such as the Prolimatech
