New builder.
I am currently running PRIME 95 at my stock speeds for now. I am getting max 54C on my cpu, is this a normal temp for my setup?

thanks

Well..

There are a few things you need to consider here, If you haven't set your vcore the chances are the motherboard is throwing miles too much voltage through. So if you drop that you could get some better temps.

The CM 212 is a nice budget cooler, but it's certainly not great with the amount of heat the i7's pump out. I get about 70c on load on my current OC.

But yeah, I'd say check Intel burn test and make sure you set the threads to 8 and not 4 since you have hyperthreading.

54C temps is nothing special, considering your on stock settings. 54 at high clocks however is pretty amazing
