hey guys, Just upgraded my pc pretty drastically. I have a phantom 410 case, gtx 560ti, i5 3570k, p8z77 mobo, and 8 gigs of 1600MHZ ram. My question is, my cpu with default fan is running at around 50 C idle. When I used prime 95 it maxed out at 95C. I think the idle and max load temps are outrageously high. There are 4 fans in my comp and plenty of space, so I think airflow and cable management isn't an issue (maybe). I ordered a coolermaster 212 + cpu cooler, so I hope that would help a bit. Is this temp too high? Also, my 560ti idles at around 30 but can get to 83 C when on max load. Again, I have no idea why there is such a large jump, and I don't think this is normal. Any suggestions?
By the way, just out of curiosity, I run Speccy to see my temps and settings, and it says my ram is at 804 MHZ (9-9-9-24), when on my bios it says 1600MHZ. Is something weird here or is this normal? Thanks guys, I don't know too much about comps, so any suggestions/insight would be greatly appreciated.
It should be noted that Prime 95 temps and temps while gaming are two different things. After about an hour doing Prime 95, my 3570k at 4.5Ghz is about at 70 degrees, while it tops out at 45-50 after hours of gaming.
thanks for the reply. The Prime 95 test was going for 1 minute when it reached the 90s. When gaming it is normally 60-70C, but thats probably too hot. I heard the gtx 560 ti starts to melt the copper after 83C, so im a bit worried. The ventilation is perfectly fine in my case and the mobo is always 27-30C at all times. Is there a heatsink or something I should do/get for the gpu? I've never used thermal paste so I don't know if that will change anything.
