Hey Guys just swapped my computer into a new case, a Raidmax Smilodon. Im running a Thermaltake V1 fan (full speed) and 2 120mm fans, and 3 80mm fans.
My i5-3470 is running on average at 32 Celsius at idle (Skype and internet) and 42-48 Celsius at load (black ops 2 on high settings). Just wanted to check to see if the temps were at an ok range, still not sure what temp point its bad on the i5. Thanks in advance!

those temps are great. Core series processors are rated up to 90-95c before damage.

I take all 3rd gen series processors and take the silver heatsink off the top, and replace the compound from intel, its complete crap, and the replaced processor runs almost 15c cooler!

45c is great for load. My 4.5Ghz i5 runs 60c on load.
