When I first built this system, I was having a major heat issue which was causing bad performance while playing video games. I ended up taking the chip out, re-doing the thermal paste and reinstalling it. That took care of the problems I was having, idle temps were around 30 degrees.
Fast forward 5 months to tonight when I just randomly decided to check my temps and saw that both cores idle around 43-45 degrees...
When I play a game, it goes up to the high 60s. There have been no problems whatsoever, and if I hadn't looked I wouldn't have known the temps have been this high.
Question is, should I worry? Or should I not care as long as there are no apparent performance issues?
So cool, I blow out my case/motherboard/cpu etc and now the thing won't boot up. It started to, got to the desktop and shut itself off. Now it won't boot up at all (it starts to, but stops before anything even comes up on the screen).
No, I didn't shake the can as I was using it. No, I didn't see any liquid come out of the nozzle.
