  1. 70C under 100% load is the high side of okay. I wouldn't want it to rise much more than that though.

    I quietly panic inside when my temps hit 60C :)
  2. Hello TheNobleNinja;

    That's a good result while running Prime95 and safe temps.
    You're actual gaming and usual workloads will be less.

    thanks will it be safe to run prime 95 for a full 24 hours with those temps
  4. Yes it will.
  5. If you use HWMonitor will it report the highest temp encountered during that run session.

  7. You didn't mention which CPU cooler you're using - but which ever one you have - you have it setup pretty good.
