Are my temperatures OK?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Key numbers are the max readings: 67c and 68c
Are these temperatures normal for an OCed i3-550?

BIOS Vcore is 1.36something with LLC ON.
GPUZ Vcore is 1.392.

I think they are too high. Or maybe I'm being too OCD about it. Do I need to reseat my heatsink? (Cooler master Hyper 212+)

I have it running on an open case lying flat. This is how I literally have the rig 24/7: http://i433.photobucket.com/albums/q...s/50d937b1.jpg

No that seems just fine, but what are your ambient temps?

Are those max temps after Prime95 blend stresstest? If so your ~70C is plenty fine.

Ambient temp is usually around 80-85f/29c.
Temps on the image are after about 3.5 minutes of p95 running blend.
