I have a Intel Core i5 3350p and when i'm playing BF3 the temps go up to a hundred and i am using a stock cooler and i only have 2 case fans (both exhaust on the top) and it is up on a table and the side is open.

Usually while idling it can range from 73 to 75 if i do nothing and usually at 80 if i'm just doing web browsing.

If you are talking about 100 Fahrenheit then yes, its a perfectly safe temperature. No need to worry.

I pray to god he is talking in Fahrenheit.

I had an old graphics card that hit 120 Celcius, the Dust melted onto the GPU.

at some point pick up a evo 212 or a clone type tower cooler. they work better then the stock cooler if your going to game.

yep get yourself a 3rd party cooler if you want lower temps. the 212 EVO with decent fluid dynamic bearing fan will turn a good cooler into a great 1. the reason for the fan change is the stock 1 is way noisy to load.

You should be worried when you start hitting 50°C - 55°C on Idle and 60°C - 65°C on Load
