Solved CPU Temps High? Tags: Computers Intel i7 CPUs Intel Last response: August 23, 2014 3:50 PM in CPUs Share Sixthmemory August 23, 2014 3:25:07 PM I just built a new computer: Intel i7-4790k (OC to 4.4GHz) EVGA Geforce GTX Titan Black x2 Gigabyte GA-Z97X-Gaming G1 WIFI-BK EVGA 1000w Supernova PSU Samsung 850 pro 256GB SSD Seagate Barracuda 3TB HDD I also water cooled the entire system. I'm not sure what safe temps for the 4790k are, but when running prime95 blend tests, the CPU can reach 100C. Is this safe? Edit: I should also probably mention the monitor i'm using is an ASUS PB287q 4k monitor.

You should aim for mid to high 80s at most, what are your temps under load in gaming/video work?
