CPU: Intel i5 750 Quad Core 2.67Ghz
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti
RAM: 8 GB


I'm using Core Temp and it's saying that my temperatures are ~32°C with just Google Chrome open, and if I play Global Agenda: Free Agent it says that I run between ~63°C and ~72°C.

I was wondering those temperatures are too high, and if I need to reapply some thermal paste to my CPU?

What heatsink do you use? Those temps are about right for the stock Intel heatsink.

Yeah I do believe its a Intel heatsink. Are those temperatures too hot? Do I need to get a aftermarket heatsink?

It's up to you; you're ok up to 72c, according to Intel. The hyper 212 is popular for an upgrade; newegg had them for $20 after rebate recently. But personally, I would leave it alone; Intel will cover the cpu for 3 years; you'll probably change it out before then.

If it's a stock heatsink that's perfectly normal

Temperatures below 80 degrees wont significantly affect the processor's lifespan

On the hot side but not dangerous. Just keep an eye on it and make sure it doesn't spike up higher.
