I was just messing around and I brought up a screen that showed my computer temps.
This is what the cpu temperature is with just google chrome open: 41C, 107F That seems HOT The mobo temps are: 32C, 89F
I don't think those are normal temperatures, I'd hate to see what they are playing games..
Please tell me if my temps are ok. I'm not trying to ruin 300+$ obviously.
Using the stock cooler with the Intel® Core™ i5-3570K you are right at what I would expect.
Here is a little trick for you to make sure that you have the stock HSF (heatsink/fan) seated right. Simply reach into the case and pull each of the 4 twist clips straight up. If you can pull any of them up then they were not seated well and can leader to a little higher temperatures then you are use to. Re-seat them and enjoy your system.
Before you overclock the system make sure that you add in a good 3rd party HSF. Something like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo can work well without paying an arm and a leg for it.
Hi, not to hi-jack the thread but I too had a quick question regarding my CPU temps. First off, it's i7-3770K not OC'd and stock Intel cooler. From what I understand the TCase for the i7 is 67°C but I've seen my temps creep over 70°C but under 80°C on a full load (idle is around 32°C). Is this OK for the CPU over the long term or should I get better cooling? This is my video editing machine and so rendering periods may run over an hour at a time.
