I'm seeing big temps from my 3770 while running bf3. I'm hitting 85 - 90 and I'm running a hyper212 evo. I was thinking about going to a h80 or h100. No desire to overclock as it is plenty for what i need for the moment. I play games like bf3 and going to uni soon and will be using it for designing on auto-cad programs. just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what i should do as this temp is too high for my liking. ambient temp is 30- 35 degrees most of the time and im running two 660 (non ti) in sli. please help!
hmm, whats your CPU load when playing BF3 ? also what cooler are you using ? you might have not applied your cooling paste well (or the cooler itself). While it is correct that Ivy Bridge can run about 20 degrees (!) higher than Sandy Bridge you should NOT be seeing those temperatures that fast.
Also, make sure your airflow is good! especially with an ambient temperature of 30-35 (which is very hot, im jelly lol).
