I'm running on an AMD FX 8530 Eight-Core, it has not yet been overclocked. In idle, CPU stands somewhere between 30/C to 45/C, but whenever I am playing any graphics demanding games, e.g. Dead Space 3, Need for Speed Most Wanted (2012), Assassin's Creed Revelations, in full specs of course, and others, according to a Temp check I performed, the CPU is going as high as 72/C, and the motherboard up to 57/C. I would like to know if this is normal, I tried using Real Temp to get more accurate information but it said my processor was not supported, instead, I used HW Monitor, which based on what I saw, fans seem to be working only at 36-38%, but then again I don't really know if that's what it meant. I would like to know if there's anything I have to worry about, I just recently built this PC and I wouldn't want anything to go wrong.
I did try it, the values you're looking at were thrown by it as I stated, I was thinking on purchasing a bigger fan cooler given the fact the case is quite big and it can support it. More importantly, 70/C is a little excessive right? I mean, that has got to wear the CPU down giving it prolonged usage, given the fact that I'm playing different games all day long that oughtta cause something, right?
