Just built my first system. I ran Prime95 for about an hour and monitored the temperature using Core Temp. At idle the core temps are about 29-30C. During the Prime95 test the average temperature across all cores was 69C over the hour, with a max temp of 74C. Are these reasonable temperatures for a system using the stock Intel cooler? I've googled but I can't find much info on a stock system (lots on OC'd and systems with upgraded cooling).
The system is as follows:
Mobo: ASRock extreme4
GPU: Asus EAH6850
RAM: G Skill Ripjaw 1600 (2x2GB)
I don't plan on OC-ing without upgrading the cooling, but I just want to make sure that it's okay for running games, etc. as - is. Thanks for any help!
Those temps are fine. Especially since real world temps will never come close to Prime 95 temps. I idle in the high 20s low 30s and hit the upper 60s in Prime 95 overclocked to 4.5 but I have an amazing cooler and case airflow.
