Hi guys a just built my system a few days ago and i'm, wondering if my temps are too high.

in C*
idle-38-44
gaming-49-56
i havent tried prime 95 but i will when i get home

take a look at my system specs so you can tell me how i can lower my temps if they are higher than normal, also i'm thinking it might be the way i applied the TIM on my cooler, i just filled in the gaps on the cooler a bit and i used the pea method on the cpu, i heard its better to apply TIM on the heat pipes themselves instead of the cpu

Run Prime95 or LinX/IBT and report the maximum temps, as well as your ambients.

Make sure you aren't using auto for the vcore.

Also what vcore are you using?

Try 1.2v and check for stability.

What does auto put you at with cpuz.

Decide what OC if any you want for your CPU, then once you have it stable start lowering your Vcore until it is not stable, then put it back to the lowest stable setting

1.28 should be a good starting point, also download CPU-z and run it, post a screen shot of the CPUid page

(edit)
voltages varie from chip to chip, you could start with 1.2 or 1.25, my 930 needs 1.28 for 4ghz.
temps while folding -smp 70c. room temp about the same

You have the power saving settings on.

Just try 1.2v and see how it goes with temps and stability.

if so how?
also should i turn off hyperthreading?

no, leave the power savings on.

leave HT on too. Just set your vcore manually as auto can spike it up to 1.35v easily.

use 1.2v for starters. Goodluck
