Core temps? Tags: CPUs Core Last response: November 15, 2011 8:53 AM in CPUs Share soultrip November 15, 2011 8:52:14 AM I just finished my first build with the following specs: mobo - asus p8z68 pro cpu - intel i5 2500k graphics - gtx 560 memory - 16 GB so far all is well and good as far as I can tell, but I was wondering what my core temps should be. I've looked around and seen vastly different numbers. I'm air cooling with a Zalman CNPS9900ALED in an Antec nine hundred with five fans and plenty of airflow. I'm using core temp to measure my temps and I'm getting around 30c-34c idle and about 48c-52c under full load. Does that sound decent? is there anything reasonable I can do to run cooler?
