Closed I5 3570k Safe Temperature & TCase Tags: CPUs Battlefield Temperature Intel i5 Last response: November 7, 2012 2:43 PM in CPUs Share aaa187 November 7, 2012 3:09:02 AM So I just got done testing out Battlefield 3, and my CPU i5 3570k running stock fan. had a constant CPU frequency of 3.71 Ghz, and Utilization of 60 percent and temperature of 68-72c Now, I went and looked at Intel websites and it mentions Tcase of 67c for i5 3570k. http://ark.intel.com/products/65520/Intel-Core-i5-3570K... What is Tcase? is that the safest temp for it? and also, are these temps okay or should I not play Battlefield 3 at all until I get a cooler?

This isn't the recommend temperature you should be at for gaming/Prime95 by any means, however. Generally speaking, 70-80C on average is what I see for 3570k's. **EDIT** Darnit I was late Score 0 Related resources Core i5 3570k safe temperature - Forum Safe Temperature for an OC i5 3570k? - Tech Support intel 3570k safe temperature stock speed - Tech Support Maximum safe temperature of an i5 4570 - Tech Support I5 3570K temperature with evo 212 hyper - Tech Support Can't find your answer ?
