Extra cooler for Pentium Dual-core Tags: CPUs Pentium Cooling Last response: May 11, 2011 7:30 PM in CPUs Share mubin a b à CPUs May 11, 2011 6:45:20 PM Hi, my dual core cpu's temp is 43c in ideal but nearly 68c or 69c when playing games at high setting. Is it safe & Do i need to use exrta cpu cooler? Will it reduce my cpu performance during gameply? My cpu model is Pentium Dual-core E5400 2.70 Ghz. If this temp is okey & no need to buy a cpu cooler, then i will spend more money to upgrade my gpu. I want to upgrade hd4650 to hd5770 gpu. Thank you.
