Hi guys have a quick question. I am not a pc professional when it comes to pc components regarding normal operating levels (heat)
but does my system look normal for the heat readings?



Thanks for your time.

CPU runs a bit hot, if that's the idle. My idle temps on CPU runs at 32-36 C. I think the max for CPU's are around 95 C, so make sure it stays under that on heavy load. My max temps on max load is 63 C for comparison.

Thanks for the feedback. so just tested with Wreckfest loaded with a  24 car grid, and my cpu heat maxed out at 54 C. looks like I am safe.  :)

Oh yes, nothing to worry about. But remember, you need to test the temps by playing for some time, the temps always tend to climb up slowly into the point, where the CPU cooler either wins the battle or loses. Just briefly starting games is not enough, you need to stress the CPU for like 15 mins at least.  8)

Do video cards run that cool these days, 29 C? I take it that not with Wreckfest running.

The standard temp for video cards is 70 some C. If getting into the high 80s C, could be a sign of a problem.

Yes, in idle. In gaming, they usually ran anything between 60-85 C (air-cooled GPU's), some even dare to let them go beyond 90 C.
