Is My CPU Temp Good?

My CPU runs at 25C Idle and 30C when running games. I have Hyper 212 Evo on my i5 2500k. No OC. The room temperature is 23C. My tower also sits on the carpet. Everything is in cased by a Zalam Z9 plus, which no extra fans have been added to, just have the defaults on. Is this CPU temp good for right now? I might be overclocking it soon.

    Yup looks like your cpu is very cool ;)
  3. 30C when running games? Which games, and how did you measure the cpu temps?

    It is too good to be true, I would double check it, specially when the room temperature is 23C.

    HWMonitor is a very good and free software you can use to get cpu temps http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
  4. at stock 30C sounds normal in a 23C room, specially if the game hes running isn't even using the CPU much.
  5. Sorry I meant around 21C, My case comes with a CPU Temp display on it (Zalman Z9 Plus). I play games from Sleeping dog, skyrim, mass effect 3, border lands 2 and dead island which are all maxed out.
  6. 21C Room temp
  7. they are not completely unfeasible temps. does startup look right, i.e. just above ambient (maybe from suspend?) but that is a good cooler.
  8. It doesn´t seem you have a cpu temp issue, however I would check it with a different program.

    Core Temp http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/
    Real temp http://www.techpowerup.com/realtemp/
    HWMonitor http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html

  9. Thanks for all the reply. I was just want to ask this one thing. What temp would be a bad temp that something could go wrong when Overclocking?
  10. 72.6°C
  11. Thank you very much :)
  12. You are very welcome! :)
  13. By the way, never use more than 2 softwares to measure the temps at once. You can use several, but use just one each time.
  14. ok thanks for the advice. I used a trusted software and im getting the same results, maybe 1 degree higher or lower. Does this mean that i have really good temperatures?
  15. I don´t believe you have any temp issue within your build, actually your temps are excellent as your room temp is quite warm.
