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.

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

at stock 30C sounds normal in a 23C room, specially if the game hes running isn't even using the CPU much.

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.

they are not completely unfeasible temps. does startup look right, i.e. just above ambient (maybe from suspend?) but that is a good cooler.

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?

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.

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?

I don´t believe you have any temp issue within your build, actually your temps are excellent as your room temp is quite warm.
