I'm pretty new to the forum, so, excuse any of my errors. I plan to become an avid member as I have been getting more and more into my new custom computer lately. I recently purchased a custom computer from CyberPowerPC (I know, I should have just built it myself, next time) and I upon playing BF3 on max settings I run into some hot temps. Now, I know that BF3 stresses your system but I don't think that the temps should be this high.
CPU- i7 4790k 4.0GHZ (Not OC)
Cooler- Asetek 510LC 120mm, Single Enermax Enlobal Silent High Performance 120MM Fan
I also have 4 other case fans, very large and open case, cool room, and fans on high.
My cores were as follows- 66,66,74,74 degrees. 74 was my max. I'm about to test again to see if it will get any hotter.
Is my cooler insufficient? Could it be installed incorrectly? Or are these temps normal for a game such as BF3? Should I be worried about playing with these temps for a long period of time?
Sorry for all the questions, I just spent a lot of money on this computer and I plan to take great care of it. Anyone who answers all of these questions deserves a damn award. Thank you
I just played again and received temps from 73-79. On the intel site it says that the CPU shuts down at 72.72 degrees. Could my monitoring program be not reading it right? II'm using Open Hardware Monitor, seems reliable.
