i dont think i can set my oven to 38 degrees. lowest setting is like 150

also, why are you touching your cpu, are you trying to break it?

No, just checking to see if it was hot or not... which it was...

38C is actually good for a CPU. They can handle 90C+ on most of them but the max temps vary from CPU to CPU. It would also help if you listed the the CPU you have as well.

Try using mayonnaise as your thermal compund, it will reduce it by 8C.

38C is about 100 degrees Fahrenheit. So it will be hot to the touch. However, there should be no way you could touch that, seeing as there should be a heatsink on it. 38C also is not hot for a CPU, and is far from hot enough to cook food. If you were able to touch it, that would mean there is no heatsink on it, which would mean that it would be well over 100C within moments of power getting applied to it. So you're either trolling or an idiot. Pick one
