Hi there I have built a new system consisting of the following:

AsRock H77 Pro4 MVP Motherboard
Intel core i5 3570
1.5TB SATA III hard drive (2 drives ---- 1 = 500GB. 1 = 1TB)
8GB corsair vengeance 1600 Mhz RAM
Geforce GTX 550 Ti Super clocked

It has a PCI wi fi card inside along with an extra usb 3.0 hub.


The temperature of the CPU as i am writing this review is 36-42 degrees with just Google chrome and Microsoft word open.
I have standard CPU cooler that came with the CPU.

Would anybody have any recommendations?

Thanks

Those temps are not a problem.

What temps are you getting under max load?

Yeah, those aren't even close to very high. If you were getting warnings, then I'd worry, but...

If you really, REALLY want to buy a cooler, don't spend more than about $25. The Hyper 212 + or EVO are the best in that range.

Your temps are very good and you have nothing to worry about.

I am curious about your temp under load if you do any gaming at all, unless you never really load it beyond browsing the internet and using standard applications.

I have just played a game of FIF13 and the temperature is 54 degrees.
Is that okay?

Im using CPUID HWmonitor to check the temperature.

Thanks guys

54 is Perfect. Nothing to worry about then.

Ya 54c at load is just fine. Don't think you have anything to worry about heat wise unless you're seeing abnormalities with your system.

You don't have to worry about your cpu temp.If you are still not sure about readings then try another temperature monitoring software like CoreTemp,RealTemp
