Safe temps for my i5 3570K?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello, my system specs are listed below.

My I5 Idles around 30-34c depending on the weather/room temperature.

Under full load 100% its goes up to 68c

Playing BF4 Beta today it hit 72c. Its never gone past that. My GPU hits 66c at full load 100%

My cooler is a Hyper 212+

So are these safe normal temps for a air cooled setup? Should i invest in a H100i? Also my i5 is overclocked to 4.4Ghz

Very safe temps.

Your cooling is adequate, no need to buy anything else unless you want to overclock further.

Stay under 80-85'C under load and you're good.

Yep, they're safe, you won't need better cooling unless you want to overclock higher, and even then, you might not need it, depending on how high you clock it and what the voltages are, your current cooler may be enough thumb.gif

I hear that BF4 is pretty CPU dependent, but I am curious what you consider "full load" that did not reach the same temp as your BF4 run. Are you using a stress test software like Prime95 or Intel Burn test?

BF4 is more GPU dependent

Even worse...how does he get higher CPU temps during BF4 on a single "GPU" then under "full load"? I just see a little discrepancy in his testing methods.
