First off, I wanted to thank this community. I had 2 previous threads asking for input on my first gaming PC build. All of the feedback and input I received from you all helped me to build an amazing PC. Here are the specs -
This entire build was about $950, and I didn't have to pay for shipping because I utilized shoprunner (I live in Hawaii, and it works!!!).
I'm so stoked on this build, i'm pulling 160-198 FPS in Starcraft 2 with Extreme graphics and all Ultra settings!!! Also capturing with Bandicam with amazing quality.
So a couple questions, my CPU temp is about 60C (While i'm gaming and capturing). I'm wondering if this is a safe temperature, or if I should invest in an aftermarket Heatsink and fan. MOBO temp is around 40C. I'm using the stock heatsink, my GPU has 2 fans, and I have 4 chassis fans running.
I'm still a new at this, since this was my first build, so I don't know how to see my GPU temp. Any ideas?
I've been reading alot about Stress Testing newly built PCs. Is this really necessary? I haven't had any problems (knock on wood). If so, then can you guys/gals recommend which ones I should use?
60C is pretty good. Though, an aftermarket cooler will bring that down a lot, and let you overclock. If you want to see your GPU temp., open up Catalyst Control Center and look through the options. It will tell you. O r just use this:
