Concerning my temps

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
okay, so i got my PC up and running today, and installed all my drivers (finally got my OS installed after many months later, thx to my school taking forever on getting their negotiations done with microsoft)

i am atm using stock fans still, (just two that came with my corsair 200r)

however, my temps are really really low. (NO OC on any components, all stock hardware)

my CPU temps at idle is 30 'C min and 36 'C max
with my GPU temp at 28 "C min and 32 "C max
NOTE: (again, this is idle)

my room temp is ~~ 73 - 75 ' F (~~ 25'C)

I watched a video saying that if you have your system temps to low, (compared to ambient temps) it isnt good, since condensation can occur inside the rig.

is my temps to low? and why is it so low?

NOTE: i will test my PC during gameplay tomorrow, took me all day to instal drivers, windows updates, games. etc etc

Condensation will only occur if you are using some kind of chilled system where the heatsink is colder than the ambient temps. You won't get condensation from any regular air or water cooling.

At idle the CPU (and GPU, depending on model) is in a low power/low voltage state drawing very little power, so the temps can be very close to ambient in that situation.

You've got nothing to worry about.
