E8400 temperature issue

I'm running an Intel C2D E8400 (not overclocked). After 2-3hrs of gaming the CPU temperature reaches 77-80 degree Celsius and the idle temperature is around 45-55 degrees. I'm using a stock cooler. I just wanted to know if it's getting too hot??

  1. That does seem a bit warm, try re-applying your thermal compound with something like AS5.

    Also try running the pc with the side off to see if it runs cooler, you may have a heat issue within the case.

    That is the core temperature, the CPU temperature is around 60 degrees. Generally which is taken into consideration??
  4. What monitoring prog are you using.

    Try Coretemp, Realtemp and HWMonitor to see what they report it as.
  5. Also try open up temp monitoring progs while running Prime95 or OCCT, this will give you a max load temp.
