I am a little worried about the temperature of my PC. When sitting idle, everything is within 2-3 degrees C of 30. Which I am fine with. But often when in game my CPU reaches around 60 and my graphics card is around the same. I know this is well within the limits of my components, however this is in older games. When playing watch dogs earlier my CPU hit 75 degrees C. This is when I have the quiet profile loaded on corsair link, and have MSI Afterburner on auto change the gpu fan speed (which by the way, seems to stick to 48% constantly and never change no matter how hot it gets).
I have tried bumping up the speeds of fans, but then my PC becomes excessively loud, so loud in fact that I can hear it through my headphones and other people in the house can hear it, even downstairs. In fact, when the PC is in quiet mode it is still quite loud.
Do you think I am worrying unnecessarily? Are these temps fine? And should I keep my fans on quiet or bump them up?
Thanks for reading guys!
