3770k heat problems please help.thanks Tags: CPUs Heat Last response: February 21, 2013 4:18 AM in CPUs Share El3ctr0nicz February 21, 2013 2:01:44 AM Hey guys I am new here. I have just got into overclocking and have a few questions. 1: when monitoring the heat of my cpu should I be monitoring the core temp or over all cpu temp. 2: Under load my core temps are 60-75 degrees C and the CPU itself is about 40 degrees C. (btw I am using hw monitor to monitor the heat, is this a good software to use? is it accurate?) Would you guys tell me if those temps are ok and if not what temps should they be? Thanks guy, I really appreciate it.
