    Is my CPU temperature getting too high?

    Alainr

      Hi,

       

      I recently built a new system (see speccs below), but ever since I upgraded my GPU from a nVidia GT220 to a Radeon HD6870 my CPU temperature spikes up to about 72 degrees Centigrade, sometimes even 77 when booting! This only seems to occur during gaming sessions and when I am booting my machine, does anyone have any idea what I can do to fix this problem?

       

      System speccs:
