Yesterday, after having my computer on all day in a somewhat hot room and playing Crysis 2 15 minutes before, my CPU was hovering around 48-52 Celsius. Is that too hot or does it take awhile to cool after playing a game?

i7-4770K not over clocked with stock fan.

Should I probably stop using it until I get a better fan?

Pretty cold for temps under load. Pretty hot for temps not under load.

You shouldn't get worried before it gets close to 70, ~40-50 is fine, even for idle, especially during the summer.

I installed a new fan today and it's even worse. Just sitting on the main menu of Crysis 2, my temp is 67-72. My case has very good airflow and I applied the thermal grease according to the instructions. What should I do?

I switched it out because it was reaching 72 Celsius when I was playing Crysis with the old fan.

With this new one, I'm hitting 76 while playing Crysis 2.

You get into the 70s and are worried? Hell when I video edit and its using 100% of my CPU it goes up to like 90 C and I don't break a sweat.
