Just got done building my new pc do these speeds seem normal or are they pretty high? Wanted to OC but temps seem high already,compared to my previous build that was using a HAF 922 AMD Phenom II X6 1055T, using a stock cooler idle was around 29c-35 load 50-60.

Just checked Touch Bios, PC Status says CPU temp 32°C ambient temp 29.4°C


Core Temp Tj max 98 core #0 35 core #1 32 core #2 40 core #3 40

Prime95 Tj max 98 core #0 60 core #1 61 core #2 66 core #3 68


Case HAF X
M/B GA-Z68XP-UD3P
i5-2500k
Corsair CMPSU-750HX
Evga GTX 470
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus

These temps are okay. The Prime 95 temps do seem a little bit on the high side, however this may have something to do with the way you installed your cooler. It may not be seated properly, or if you are using a thermal paste (such as Arctic Silver 5) you should give it additional time to be broken in. Some thermal pastes require as much as 200 hours to reach their best efficiency. The temps may drop by as many as 6 or 7 degrees yet. Due to the difference in temperatures between the first two cores and the second two, though, I would definitely check to make sure your cooler is seated right.
Hope this helped!
