My first build is up and running! Need your thoughts! Tags: CPUs Build Intel i5 Temperature Last response: December 26, 2011 12:57 PM in CPUs Share fsujoseph December 25, 2011 10:24:25 PM So I FINALLY got my first build up and running! I just need a quick question, and yes I know it has been answered before, but want to see recent thoughts. My i5 is downloading a game right now, so I don't know if it is under stress, but right now the temperature is idling at 45c average. I'm running an i5 2500k, is this a good or bad temperature? THANKS!

If it stays under 70C your fine. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
