So I just built my first ever system, worked fine the first time, so I was pretty proud. I went through and have been running RealTemp to see how it's holding up, and it seems to be idling really high temps (45-52c) and it says when i put it through some stress test that it went up to 79!!!..... Kinda scares me!
Yes I put thermal paste on, is it possible I put too much on? All the fans seem to be working on the case/gpu/cpu... Anything I should check??
