CPU Temperatures Tags: Homebuilt CPUs Systems Last response: June 27, 2012 6:55 AM in Systems Share JoshuaCreed June 27, 2012 5:13:21 AM Hi, Tom's Hardware. I'd like to ask about the overall temperature of my CPU and my cooling. On loads, for example such as running a game at maximum settings my temperature utility is showing this: http://i50.tinypic.com/256wyhi.png System Reference/My build: - CPU (Processor): Intel i7 950 (Not Overclocked). - Thermal Solution: Corsair Hydro Series H100 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler Liquid cooling system. - Fans: 120mm (4) - PSU (Power Supply): 1200watt ATX - Motherboard: EVGA X58 FTW3 (1366) - GPU (Video Card): EVGA Nvidia GTX 570 (1) - Case: Corsair 800D Obsidian I have two questions: 1. Are these temperatures in the above image optimal for my system? 2. Since my motherboard only had 4 fan connectors, and I have 2 extra fans, is there a way I can add more? P.S. This is my first build.
