Could this hurt the CPU in anyway? Like the way it preforms in games?
Heat will shorten the life of most components. The cooler your rig runs the longer it will last, so if I was you I would look into getting a better CPU cooler. My rig idles at 27-28 degrees and gaming it only goes to the high 40s at stock settings. Also the more air you have moving thru your case the cooler it will be.
