It seems my temps are starting to climb up again as the days start to get warmer. Not sure but they seem a bit higher than last year.
Right now with about 10% cpu usage I am seeing temps in the low to mid 40's, where they used to be in the low 30's. My temps don't usually start creeping up like this until the summer when higher temps in the 80's and 90's hit. Those temps don't seem that bad because I do have my cpu OC'd at 4.2 ghz.
I replaced my thermal paste like 3 months ago with a system flush and refill because my temps seemed a bit high for the winter. Not sure if I should reapply the paste or look into getting a larger AIO (I use the 240-X with a heatkiller IV pro block on my cpu only) but I do not have the money for one right now. Though it could be my pump is starting to slow down.
I will run a bench or stress test and report back with the temp results in a few.
I am looking for suggestions on what I can do to hopefully improve my temps. I prefer the cheapest route possible because I am currently trying to save some money to upgrade my system.
Edit: I ran OCCT for about 20 mins and my CPU temps peaked at 70, and it has never gotten that high before on the same test. It usually goes no higher than about 63.
Edit 2: I ran Time Spy and it acted weird. My cpu never went above 27% usage and my GPU never went over 2% yet the GPU temp ran up to 54 deg. Which is high, but then when I ran Firestrike and the GPU hit 100% but it never went over 42 deg. The GPU is cooled by a H140 with a heatkiller IV pro block.
