Man am I nervous, I've been playing Black Light Retribution allot today and started to hear all my fans roaring and my temp reading on my case is saying 28°C and it usually is 23-24. so I was wondering why it was hotting then normal in the case so I check my cpu temp with Core temp and was shocked to see it reaching a max of 90°C and idling at 75+. My cpu is not oced and has the stock cooler when I close the game my temp goes back to 40°C-50°C. this is odd maybe that game is just really cpu intensive. what do you guys think? here a pic
I hope its good, when I leave my pc on just doing nothing its around 35-40c is that normal for stock cooler, when I'm encoding like I am now or playing games like Black light or gta 4 then it gets high like anywhere from 60-80 and it maxed at 90c. I am going to get a hyper 212 regardless though it seems to be a good thing to have. especially because its so easy to OC on my MOBO.
With overclocking, the Hyper 212 is decent but there are better ones for that. I have a Zalman 9900 Max and I have my 2500K at 4.5GHz with it peaking at 55c under gaming (including GTA 4 and Max Payne 3).
Of course its also a bit more expensive.
And yes, 35-40c is normal for the stock cooler when idle.
So, I went out today rode my bike a few miles in the rain , to the computer store and picked me up a hype 212 evo, Installed it, and wow am I happy I did. I just got off playing the same games for the same amount of time as before except with the hyper 212 I maxed at 42C, instead of 90C . so far this thing is working great. thanks for all your advice.
