So I just put together my system and after dealing with me not properly seating my cpu heat sink I finally got it seated. I'm checking temps through my bios right now and I'm curious if I had applied the thermal paste properly
at idle in the bios the cpu is sitting at 42c /107.5f is this a normal range? and I also had issues applying thermal to my northbridge heatsink on my board its currently sitting at 36c/96.5f

I'm just wondering normal operating temperature to make sure once I do a stress test I am not going to damage anything. Sorry for all the noob questions second build and still am trying to be perfect

thanks everyone for the time!!

42 is a bit warm, but if you'd applied the thermal paste incorrectly you'd probably be seeing much higher temps, upwards of 80 possibly.

As far as a danger zone goes, I would only get worried if it starts going above ~85-90. Do a stress test, and if you see the temps get into the high 80s or 90s, stop the test.

Also, what do you intend to use the computer for? What are the temperatures where you live?

I will be using the computer for gaming mostly, and some video rendering. I live in ohio it is about 75 degrees in my house currently.

So ambient heat isn't an issue here. As I said, download a temperature monitoring program, such as Core Temp or Speedfan and do a stress test. If temps get too high, stop the test and do some more research. That's what I would do in your situation.

Okay I am going to start that and go from there, I have heard that applying new thermal paste takes a while for it to cure and to harden and as this happens over time temps go down but this still seems warm to me. I am going to run a test if it stays to warm I will just redo the thermal paste. thanks for your reply on this

Currently running a prime95 torture test, while viewing my temps with core temp on full load it is staying at 51c maximum was 52c is there a good program to monitor my mobo heat on the northbridge? and is this level acceptable?

The CPU will almost always be significantly hotter than the mobo, so I wouldn't be too concerned. As for temps, 52 is almost suspiciously low. I would try Speed Fan too and see if they show the same temps. Honestly, I wouldn't get worried about heat until the high 80s to 90s.

54c using coretemp and hwmonitor, that's doing the torture test for the last 3 hours max was 55c
So I'm thinking at this point i'm good. It fluctuates 1-2 c with these various programs. Now as far as motherboard goes It does not work on any of the given programs the only place I was able to accurately test it was in my bios. I'm curious as to why.

Speed fan and I downloaded asus probe are showing 60c

Best solution

It won't show the mobo heat because it really doesn't matter that much, it's the processor that will get hotter than the motherboard. I really wouldn't be that concerned about it. I mean odds are your mobo's temp will increase maybe 5-10 degrees if your CPU is at full load. Besides, your motherboard should never get hotter than the CPU.

Anyways, I would leave your 4130 on overnight with the torture test running just to make sure it's 100% stable.

Will do, only reason I was worried about the motherboard was because of my little accident on knocking the northbridge heatsink off the board and having to reapply thermal to it as well. I will let the cpu go overnight hopefully it stays where it is now and I can sleep :)  thanks!
