Is 65C a typical temp during gaming on an i5-2500k?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I haven't even overclocked it

Installed with stock cooler and temp is 39C idle 65C in demanding games (Witcher 2 in particular)

Is this abnormally warm? Haven't even tried Prime95 yet.

Sounds about right for stock cooler.

Depends on yer ambient ofcourse but it's about right.

Mine runs 65c gaming as well but then again, I run 5.3Ghz tongue.gif

Even at stock, with the turbo mode it overclock itself, though it's not an uncommon temp. The stock cooler is realy bad. You might be able to get a lower temp (60 ich) with some decent case ventilation. and a lot more with a proper cooler.
