Guild Wars 2 and Temp

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I made a previous post about temperature and the issue was fixed. My cpu temp is now fairly normal with most games. The one exception today , which I noticed , was Guild Wars 2. It was making my i5 3570 k go up to 80 degrees Celsius, sometimes even 87, which I find extremely frightening. I'm also using the stock heat sink which came with the cpu. Now I know the game and most mmo's are pretty cpu intensive. Anyone else experience something like this?

Well I'm going to try applying new thermal paste and reapplying the heat sink.

Invest in a better cooler.

I didn't think it was necessary to have an after market cooler when I'm not overclocking ? Or is this because the cpu runs hotter then the older sandy bridge type?

I don't know if there is any difference between 1155 and 1156 mounts, but this is one awesome cooler for the price.

If your case is smaller, this one will definitely keep your temps down. I use it and it has been nothing short of amazing.

PS, I do a lot of 3D rendering which puts all cores/threads at 100% load for extended periods of time (12 hours non-stop, regularly). My temps are always good to go.

Also, make sure you have the correct air flow in your case. Make sure it isn't clogged with dust and that all fans are working properly. If you add your computer to your sig, people can help you a lot easier, too.

Hopefully others will chime in for some cooling options. I really haven't checked up on them in a while. Stock just doesn't cut it, sometimes - although you shouldn't be getting quite as hot as you are. It's really a worthwhile investment.
