Playing on a diff comp than usual. Resident Evil 6 takes my CPU's to 100% usage, GPU remains low usage and cool though. Game runs fine usually with light skips but with a GTX 560 that doesn't surprise me too much, I was curious is for 100% load MSI afterburner is showing my CPU's reaching a max temp of 1: 64. 2: 68 3: 67 4: 66. Should I avoid playing this game for any long periods of time or is this safe? Lol I dunno in the case of full load.

 

CPU: i5 2500K 3.3ghz

So your actual load is 100% or are you assuming it's full load because your temperatures are exceeding 60C? 60C is quite normal during gaming, however, it depends on what cooling you have.

Well, according to Afterburner they are. I dunno how accurate it is or isn't though. PSU being used is a 460 watt with the i5 2500K and GTX 560.(This is only temporary, though. Until my 750W arrives and I will upgrade to the GTX 760.)

Check your Task Manager if you're able. Also, what percentage are they at idling, or just during normal use?

First 3 are about 27%. 4th for some reason is 40%.

This is idle or current usage? Can you list what applications are running? If this is idle or just browser open, it's awfully high.

Well at this moment I got AVG, My Logitech G600 controller and Steam on top of Google Chrome. So, current usage. Wanted to see what the normal use was.

Oh, I also wanted to ask since you were helping me in the PSU topic also. This is the kind of GTX 760 they sent me..http://www.amazon.com/PNY-GeForce-DisplayPort-PCI-Express-VCGGTX7602XPB-OC/dp/B00F6EAMR6 NOt exactly what I wanted but I guess I did not specify not knowing how many different kinds there were. Would you say a 750W Corsair will keep this and the i5 2500K cool? Card is 500Min. =/

Max temp for that CPU is 72.6 Celsius, so your recorded temps are definitely in the danger zone, IMO.

750watt is more than enough for a 760 and the i5. The GPUs are the most wattage-sucking from your PSU, the CPU is not so much.

Ah. Also wanted to ask another one. Using my i7-4770/GTX 645 machine my temps are at 57C max (Other cores linger around the 50's anywhere from 50 to 57.) 25-27C idle. Is this good? 57 and such is when in RE6. Which is a game that takes my CPU's to high usage. Lol

=P I used to feel that way until lately my Comps have been trying to fry on me. Haha Of course MSI Afterburner also puts stress on the CPU. So, 57 isn't really it's natural temp either. So, I suppose I should be good.

Nah dude, if you're getting into the high 70s and 80s, then you may have a problem, but your idle and max temps are all good.
