Under 60C while gaming should be fine for i5 2500K, right?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just played a few matches of SC2 and according to HWMonitor, my max temp was around 56C for one of my core.

This should fine?

Also, I've noticed my CPU temps are a bit higher when watching online videos compared to my AMD CPU. Is it normal for Intel CPUs to run hotter?

Thanks!

Completely normal.

AMD's peak at about 62c while Intels peaks at about 90c.

Yeah, you're golden. My room has really bad ambients in 80+ weather, so my 2600k at 4.5 will reach in the 70s sometimes.

You're fine.
