Hey Overclock.

First off, I am sorry if this is wrong place for this question.
I just today upgraded to a i7 4790k and did the thermal compound job myself (first time) so I am a little bit worried I didnt do a good enough job.

I'm running i7 4790k with a Corsair Hydro H60 V2 cooler and Arctic Silver 5 thermal compound and I am worried sick I might fry my CPU.

I tried running The Division on High quality and HWMonitor says my temps goes from 40-60c (Max says 64c (147F)) should I be worried?
During Idle its 30-35c with some random 1 second jumps to 42c.
Read up that Arctic Silver 5 takes around 200hours before it works the best but you guys think I did a good enough job to just roll with my current thermal goo job?

Thank you for reading and hopefully a response.

Thanks alot for the response and I am glad to hear that.
Guess I just have to hope for a little better after the cure time of the thermal compound.
