I recently build a gaming pc and when i play a game it shows in real time that my cpu tempt is about 70 degree and 45 degree when doing normal browsing. Im using a stock heatsink. Is it safe or should i consider a aftermarket heatsink? Any recommandation?
Stock cooler blows. Get some proper cooler. I got I7-4770 non K and it runs 30c idle and 57ish load. That is with the averagish Arctic Freezer I30 cooler.
Of course you also should make sure your case is well ventilated. I put a little money towards N500 case from Cooler Master and slapped on 2 extra side fans in it and they do magic there, my Radeon 6990 lost a good 6-7c at load just from that and I'll stick another 3 fans in that case (simple 120mm fans cost a couple of bucks).
So what I am saying is get a better cooler and grab a couple of simple 120mm fans to boost your case vent and you will slash 10-15c there easy.
I use the coolermaster trooper black case. There are 2 fan in front, one big fan on top and one on the back. I dont get why its over 70. And im not overcloaking them. The case is quite spacey. Should i buy external fan to help reduce the heat?
