Intel i5 3570k Temperature Question

Hello,

My CPU, Intel i5 3570k, is running at stock speeds with the stock cooler. When playing games, the temperatures are about 50 degrees Celsius, which I'm perfectly fine with. But when I render a video in Windows Live Movie Maker, the CPU hits full load and goes up to 70-80 degrees Celsius. Should I be concerned? I'm worried I'll burn out my CPU by rendering a video for about 30 minutes and having it sit that high for that long.

  1. That's normal temps. It'll auto shutoff at 105C or so to save itself. It'll start to throttle at I believe 95C.
  2. Those temps are not anything to be worried about, but they do seem a bit high. Try putting in some new thermal paste.
  3. Depends on the room temp, but they aren't high for the stock cooler. It is pretty loud though so even a cheap $30 cooler like a 212 evo will be a lot quieter and temps will only go to the 50's.
