My i5 3570k is 50 Degrees idle.

Just started playing bf3 and it was going for around 60 - 70 degrees

This was alarming. I have a Coolermaster CPU cooler...

This has not been overclocked or tampered with.

  1. Reapply your thermal paste and makes sure your heatsink is on correctly. What cooler do you have?

    60-70 degrees on that cooler doesnt seem unusual

    50 degrees on idle is not normal. 60-70 on load is normal though.
