CPU load temps increase Tags: CPUs Games Last response: May 13, 2010 1:38 PM in CPUs Share Anonymous a b à CPUs May 13, 2010 9:18:39 AM Hello,I have a AMD x4 phenom 965 with its stock cooler installed. Before I would get 37-38C idle temps and when playing games etc it would go up to around 45-50C. But these past 2 days when I play games the temps increases to 60-61C straight away. If it was a dust/airflow problem than wouldn't the idle temps change aswell, the idle temps are still 37-38C. The games themselves seem to be running at higher rates aswell. Before it was 30-40% but now its 100%. I haven't done anything different (that I can remember anyway) Thanks Additional info: Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA770t-UD3 GPU: Sapphire 5850 1GB RAM: 4GB More about : cpu load temps increase mi1ez a b à CPUs May 13, 2010 1:38:42 PM It could still be dust. check any filters etc. My PC doesn't get much warmer at idle when clogged up but can get bad under load.
