When checking the H/W Monitor in BIOS, temps are:
cpu - 35*C idle -> 42*C minimal use for 10-20min
mobo - 29*C idle -> 35*C minimual use for 10-20min
When checking ASRock eXtreme Tuner (included utility w/ my mobo), temps are:
High 20s/Low 30s idle (*C) -> less than 35*C following benchmarks (PCMark7)
The case I am using is Fractal Design Define R3, a sound-dampening case. This contributes slightly to overall heat retention.
My concern is whether the cpu temps taken from these different measures are generally too high. A friend has built a system that typically runs in the low 30s *C.
I will continue running benchmarks and I will report back with the results for more gpu & cpu testing.
