I7 2600 temps... are these ok?
Nov 20, 2011, 1:33 PM
Im running a i7 2600 w/ a Thermaltake FRIO fan...
I know these are under the max threshold, but I guess I was expecting to see cooler temps (this is the first system I've built in 5+ years so my train of thought could be distorted as well...)
Idle @ 30c / 87F
Load @ 42c / 109F
stock speeds.... no over clocking.
Load is actually while I'm playing BF3 for a bit, not sure if that is a very good "load" but it's a gaming machine and that is what I'm playing mostly.

Unless temps exceed 70C, don't worry about them.

Battlefield 3 puts most of the load on the gpu so you would probably better off using prime 95 to check your temps.
