Solved Is my CPU running too hot? Tags: New Build CPUs Systems Last response: May 20, 2010 3:51 PM in Systems Share mgkunkel May 20, 2010 2:41:54 PM I just completed my first build, using an X2 555 and M4A79XTD EVO mb and stock heat sync. It is in an Antec 300 Illusion with 4 fans and a PowerColor 4850 1GB, 4GB HyperX RAM. Under no load, the CPU temp is 78F (26C) and MB temp is 71C (22C). When i play COD4, the CPU temp is 89F (not sure what it is celcius) right after I quit the game. That is hotter than room temp. IS that too hot? Thanks!

Best solution snowgoer1998 May 20, 2010 2:50:11 PM those temps are fine... generally speaking, under full load (with no overclock) it's best to see your CPU with temps under 60 C (140 F) with a CPU temp of 84 F (~30C) you're fine.
