My fan has just fail,and i want to buy a good fan and i don't have the money right now is it safe to play games with the cpu on passive cooling from the hyper 212+ radiator ?
After 10 min of prime 95 the temps reached 81 degrees
Well, those chips wont run that hot when you game normally, but it is above the comfort zone definitely, so I would get a fan ASAP. You can help the temps by providing better cable management in your case and better airflow towards the 212 plus wherever possible.
