is 70's or 80s degree on 4770K while gaming/BF3 bad?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I sold my Corsair H80i and have to use the STOCK intel fan/heatsink atm.

I'm idling at 40's, but in load in games like BF3, I'm hitting mid/high 70's or even80s on some cores.

Is this OK until I get my new water cooler (swifttech h220) soon?

As long as you're only using the stock heat-sink for no more than a few weeks you should be just fine. Those temperatures are by no means ideal but after a few months parts of the CPU could start to degrade. I'm actually planning on selling my H80i and getting something a bit more ample.

As long as you don't cross the TJMax, it's fine. It might hurt lifespan by some incredibly miniscule amount, but really, it's not enough to care about.

Isn't the TJMax of the 4770k around 105C?

Not sure on the number, but it's very high.
