I just had to RMA my graphics card Radeon HD 7850. I was wondering if its SAFE to play with Intel HD 3000, till i can get my video card back in a month.

OCZ ZT Series 650W 80 PLUS Bronze
Intel Core i5-2500K
ASRock Z77 Extreme4
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB
5 X 120mm Fans

I am using Speedfan 4.49. I noticed CPU temps jumping to 70C-75C before i turned the game off. When i had the video card, the CPU would never get over 55C-60C.

Its going to run hotter as you're now putting more calculations through the CPU. Max temp for that processor is 95 degree's and it will slow itself down to stay under that temp. So you're fine.
