Thanks for taking the time to come over and take a look at my thread.
So here is the specs I am running:
AMD FX 8350 Stock Speeds 4.0
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO dual fans for push and pull
Thermaltake Core V71 Chassis
ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0
PNY GTX 770 2GB OC
Thermaltake 1200W Toughpower
240GB PNY XLR8 PRO SSD
Seagate 500GB HD
So I've had this build for a while. I recently upgraded my case and cpu fan and did a transplant yesterday. Everything has booted up fine and I was able to play BF4 yesterday for about 2 hours. On and off, a full hour probably. I didn't run PRIME95 because to be honest, I've never used it and I don't think I need to at this point.
But here is the situation. I remember my stock cpu cooler in my old case (ANTEC 1200), and it wasn't too bad. On this case and setup currently, I am getting about 32-34 idle. On load while playing BF4, I've seen it get anywhere below 50c.
I just wanted to ask you guys if you think my temps are not what they are supposed to be. I've seen people get much lower temps with this setup. Could someone please assist? I also made sure that everything was put on tight and secure, including the new installed cpu cooler.
I will attach a photo for everyone to see my temps currently. The ambient temperature right now I don't have precise, but lets just say its pretty damn hot outside and the house had no airflow or ac turned on for the whole day till about 30 minutes ago.
actually i would say there to cool if the load temps. so cool in fact they are likely being read wrong.
try different apps like core temp/real temp and speed fan. also if there idle temps then dont worry about them unless they are running very hot. the only temps you need worry about really are load temps.
so load up the system and check them rather than these.
I actually live in California. LA. It was about 84 today. Felt like 90 though. But here is a pic of my HWmonitor after playing BioShock Infinite. I know its an older game but I wanted to do some single player campaign so that I could beat the game. I'm about to play some GuildWars 2 and post another pic after that. Thanks again for everyone's time and assistance!
Thanks for the reply dacquesta1. Thank you everyone. I am posting another screen shot below of me playing GuildWars 2 for about 2 hours. I turned the AC off or a little higher. So ambient temps are a little higher. Are these temps okay? Sorry for the multiple posts and questions. I just want to make sure everything is in order with my new setup. As always, thanks again everyone!
for living in cali at the hight of summer. there good.
especially on air. so as long as there below the max recommended of 72 on the socket 62 on the core your fine. if your temps suddenly start going up close to 60 then clean the fans and heatsync fins of dust and they should fall again but other than that its all good.
Thats awesome news HEXiT. Thank you for replying. So on HWmonitor I know the CPU temp is obviously where it says "CPU" under temperature. Or am I wrong? So which one is my socket? I'm sorry but I am kinda new at reading this stuff. The only thing I really know for certain is the video card temp.
