Is 60c-65c under full load okay/safe?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I game alot, and I love my pc, I don't want to risk damaging it.

Would 60-65 range be safe for long gaming sessions?

I currently have an I5 3570k @4.2


Thanks for the help biggrin.gif

Specs-
I5 3570k
Hyper 212 Evo
EVGA FTW GTX 680 SLI
8gb DDR3
128 vertex 4 ssd
2tb HDD

You're safe up to 90*C load temperatures. Yes, you're just fine. (15*C under the thermal throttle limit of 105*C).

I suppose it would be safe, but those temps seem pretty high for what should be a pretty mild overclock..
Did you get those temps actually gaming, or running prime95? Cause that makes a world of difference.

Are those gaming temps, or stress testing temps?

If they're gaming temps, they're a bit on the high side, but still well under the max. If they're eg: Prime95 temps then they're good.

I got those temps from gaming for about 5 hours. I was thinking of just buying a better cooler, something like a noctua nh d-14

I can wholeheartedly recommend the nh-d14, been using it in my builds for years.
One thing you'll want to make sure of, though, is that your case is wide enough to clear the heatsink, as it's quite high smile.gif
That being said, despite being on the high side, those temps shouldn't cause you to worry too much, really.

No point man, you might shave off 5 or even 10 degrees but it's not gonna matter one bit.
I replaced my TRUE with a SB-E, just because I felt like spending some cash not because of a immense decrease in temps.

Hyper 212 evo is a pretty good cooler and according to many reviews, it easily competes and even surpasses the more expensive coolers. In my opinion, direct heat-pipe contact is always better than copper bottom plate.

So, I'll say that you really won't notice any difference in terms of temperature wise if you buy nh-d14.

I have the Evo slapped with my w3520 and it does an excellent job at keeping it cool.

I'm not sure if it matters or not, but I bought my pc from cyberpower, minus the graphics cards. My pc came with a really hard Styrofoam to protect the insides during shipping. When I removed the hard Styrofoam, the tips of my 212 evo were sort of smashed, I'm not sure if that has anything to do with my poor temps or not.

This is where most of the damage is. (it's not the actual pic, I'm just using this one as an example tongue.gif)
