  1. No its not normal. It should be at about 80C max. Consider that at 105 the pc will shut down due to overheating so your CPU wont be damaged.

    Make sure that your cooler is set correctly.

    Have you done any overclock or any other recent changes on the system?
    The temps went so high recently or you always remember having such high temps?
  2. nope i just got my system only and there is no overclocking done on it.

    The only thing that i was not sure was the installation of my cooler but i do see it running.

    For reference about the max and min

  3. 1- the cooler may be running, yes. but sometimes it is not well seated, or not enough thermal paste was applied.
    2- what is your case type?
    3- how many case fans do you have? which is intake and which is outtake?
  4. I am sure than the thermal paste was enough and it well sitted and my casing is fractal design R4
    front and bottom intake rear is the exhaust
  5. your CPU is Intel i5-4670 or Intel i5-4670K?
  6. that is not overclockable.
    anyway, am suspecting the CPU cooler, can you re-install it?

    i think you need new cooling system and make sure your case airflow is correct.

    i had same problem before 1 week and i noticed the airflow is wrong and my PC dirty inside so blow air inside to remove the dust check your airflow and check your cooling system system is cold inf.
  9. i found a fan in the wrong position and had it changed and now it is at 88 degrees max when gaming is this normal or its still hot and needs more fan

    If you can provide me with photos of your fans in the case i can help you more with the airflow :D Or give me your case name.
  11. Your airflow should be like this.

    Well 88 degrees is better than the previous one but still, something is wrong with either the airflow either the cooler.
  12. i reccommend you buy better fans there alot of new and cheap fans like 8$
