Just build my computer, do i need diagnostics?
Jun 1, 2011, 7:28 PM
I just built my new desktop and I am not sure if everything is working correctly...but they are working! I havent had a desktop in years so your help is appreciated!
I was told to do some diagnostics by my friends, but I do not know how to read them/not sure if the results are good.
I have done PCMARK 7 and got a 3016
I ran Prime95 for 30 minutes-max over the four cores are 49c, 55c, 52c,51c(I think the temp here is high since i am not overclocking.
What else do I need to do to make sure my comp is in tip top shape? I also did the memory tester in bios
Relevant parts (i think):
CPU: intel i5 2500k
cpu cooler: Xigmatek Dark Knight
mobo: MSI P67a-G43
gpu: Asus EAH6850
Thank you all!

Those temps are fine if thats at load,
if your stable running P95 you should be fine,

Okay, bc I've heard of people oc'ing to 4.2 or so and have low 60 temps so I got slightly worried.
I thought a non-stock cooler would get me much better temps! Oh well. I'll see what I can do to make it run quieter now.
