post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
The idle temps on my i7 are core1:42c Core2: 36c core3: 40c core4: 36c
when im playing games they raise to about 50c when playing LOL on max settings. Is this too high? I have a cool master V8...i live in nj and its kinda hot here now.

that looks perfectly normal, you need to get a better cooling and try to overclock it to 4100 or more. I have mine OC to 4150 with Offset its fast MOFO.

Well to my experience, how hot it is outside does affect the temp of your PC a bit, (if your room is a bit warmer than usual)

But processors can survive at 80C. Just get a water cooling kit, I have 1, and my processor doesnt go over 35

Your room must be really hot from 75 to 85? Thats why you got those Idles, but those looks normal.

If you want better then get some water cooling.
