Is this too hot for a cpu?

So I do record for youtube which makes me edit. I edit with sony vegas and I was wondering if for a Intel Core i3-4130 an max of 65 degrees (celsius) is too much for the cpu. The intel website says it will start slowing down to prevent itself from dying at 72 degrees (Celsius). I am also rendering with OpenCL which I think is a bit of the graphics card. I have a 140mm fan on the top of my case and a 120mm fan on the side. The cpu fan doesn't seem to go too fast bc it isn't making a loud noise. It is very quite to be honest. Thanks in advance!

    That temp is fine, but you might be able to make it cooler.
    You can use SpeedFan, or other applications to set the speed for your cooler fan.
    Also, what cooler do you have on your CPU? If you have some extra $, you can go for some better cooling, like the Noctua NH-D14, or Corsair H100i.

    Forgot to mention that sorry, I am using the stock cooler with came with it I also have msi afterburner which also allows you to control your fan speed I have it on auto right now. So far it hasn't gone any higher than 68 degrees C but it has an average of around 65-66 degrees C. Thank you for the fast reply and I'll check to see if I can get one of these new coolers but as long as those temps are ok then I'll be fine.
  3. Dear,

    using i3 for video editing at max 65 is a way normal temp and you should be thankful to your CPU for being like this :) No need to worry. Temp is oki.

    Thank you for the answer that is a relief but thats the average max is 68 but I don't think that will do much of a difference :)
  5. Dear, there is a logical reason behind this behavior. You are into vid editing task, for which i7/Xeon is recommended. But you are doing all this stuff on i3 that's why I wrote that you should be thankful to your CPU :)

    Hitting 68 or even 70 can be expected because vid editing is too much CPU consuming task.
