Core i7 975- Running too hot? Tags: CPUs Water Cooling Intel i7 Last response: February 9, 2010 12:59 AM in CPUs Share jraschke11 February 8, 2010 8:57:45 PM Hi, I have a Core i7 975 Extreme. Running stock speed, with liquid cooling. If I do nothing but sit here and play one computer game (World of Warcraft), the temps average 50*-55*C or higher sometimes. I know they run hot, but that is pretty extreme for having liquid cooling it seems?
