My temps are scaring me, is it safe?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi, I am gaming and my temps are really high and the stock GPU/CPU fans are making a lot of noise. Is my temps safe to keep gaming? I'm playing BF4 at the moment.

Safe? Yes, but it is still pretty high. Considering you are still using the stock cooler it's probably fine. What kind of airflow do you have in your case? Getting a bit more cool air in and hot air out might help you, but the stock HSF is pretty junky.

Those temps are fine on a 2500k.

Stock coolers aren't the best in general.
You could check if it is seated properly.
While doing that, you could re-apply thermal compound if you have any.
Might want to consider buying an aftermarket cooler at some stage.

Well I'm using a HAF 912 with two 120 mm fans, one in the lower front near the HDD, and the other on the upper rare, both exhaust.

There's your problem... Turn the front fan around so that it sucks cold air inside the case.
Check the temps again afterwards and see if it makes a difference.

if you are running the Stock cooler that comes with the 25k it will gives you the High temp. Looks like you don't have any OC on that CPU so for a Stock core clock temp is High.

From any intel stock cooler upgrade with low cash I would recommend this Hyper 212Evo It is chep0 and does the job and if you have a bit more cash get this Thermal paste here
GC-Extreme or IC Diamond

The the Hyper and any of those Thermal above will cut your temp down. but keep in mind air flow in your Case must be good like pass through front to back. Another good thing to do is keep the side panel out. just slap it back on for pics. wink.gif

Thank you. With the Hyper 212Evo, should I replace the front 122 mm fan with a MegaFlow 200 mm and add a second 200 mm fan on the very top? Would this make a huge different or just add more noise?

HAF 912 is a big case, you should certainly have more than 2 fans. IIRC you should have 2 in the front, 2 on top, and 1 on the back. If you are using that case with 1 120 intake and 1 120 exhaust, that is the reason that your temps are high....other than the stock Intel provided cooler. Make your 2 fronts intake and the top/back exhaust.

still trying to find the part about high temp... 78C is a perfectly good temp for a 2500k... especially considering he's using stock cooler biggrin.gif IIRC throttling for a 2500k is somewhere around 85-90C. and thermal shutdown is at 105C
CAN he use more cool air intake? sure.
should he get an aftermarket cooler? definitely.
but... is 78C hurting his system? nope biggrin.gif
