Hello guys, right now I'm running a Core i7 at stock speed with factory fan, and long story short I live in the middle of the desert and the temp here is about 28-30 ºC in my room (outside is like raininng fire), the question is how much above that temp could be considered as a normal operation temperature?? Right now I have almost 50ºC at iddle, is that ok?? or should I consider an after-market CPU fan and/or improve my case (Cosmos 1000) fans??
50C at 30C ambient is fairly average for a Core i7 with stock cooler. You don't need a cooler upgrade, but if you want one the Cogage True Spirit is significantly better than stock, inexpensive, and quiet.
