hello all,

im running a core i5 3570k on a Gigabyte z77 ud3h mobo w/ stock fans. i havent overclocked my card and i have a crappy cpu case. my cpu temps goes up to 70-73c under load after hours of gaming like 6hrs+ or so. is this temp normally safe? or should i buy another case with better airflow?.

70 - 73 is a little warm but I wouldn't worry too much. If anything I would get a new CPU cooler like guitargod suggested. You shouldn't need a new case, but do make sure to clean out any dust from your PC and also make sure any cables are kept out of the way.

the I5-3570K is meant to operate at a max or 70'c i think but think it take go to higher temp but will just run slower.

if you getting high temps then an aftermarket HFS is needed as well as 1 or 2 extra case fans (or maybe a new case) to improve air flow and cooling

basically i have a case that only has 1 exhaust fan ( i know, that's why i called it crappy case ). would buying a case that has better airflow like http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/product.php?product_id=... lower my temps by good amount or i still have to buy an aftermarket cooler for my cpu. im still not planning on overclocking my cpu, will the stock fan be fine?. also i my friend recommended me to change my psu (550w good quality) into a 600-700w one. cause it may be one of the reasons my cpu temps go high cause my system is pushing my psu to do more power. i have a oc'd sapphire 7850 2gb @ 1050/1250 btw.

70C isnt warm. 85C+ would be alittle too warm. Chip will throttle itself at 100C

upgrading your case/cpu cooler will help. i would say try a new cooler. A power supply upgrade isnt necessary. However if you are fine with the not dangerous temps, nothing really needs to be done..
