    i3 4170 temps while gaming.

    Zuuu

      Hello guys, i just want to ask if my processor temp is ok or not, well while i was playing games (i.e nba 2k16, dota 2 etc) i noticed that my cpu temp reaches approximately 74-78 degrees i wonder if those temps are ok? because i've seen videos in youtube same set up as mine playing heavier games like witcher 3, gta v, shawos of mordor etc, and hes temp barely reach 70 maybe around 50-65 most of the time. and he said hes running it on stock cpu cooler. i have tried changing the thermal paste but improvement is almost negligible,. what should i do?

              Thank you for the reports.

               

              According to them your system is running fine, as long as the computer does not restart, enters in BSOD's or shutdowns itself should be fine. The fact that the temperature raised when you were running that test is normal, the processor will rise the temperature under heavy work load. You might try updating your BIOS to the latest, and setting the defaults in your configuration, but your system is working as expected.

                Hello, Zuuu:

                 

                I wanted to follow up your case.

                 

                Were you able to update the BIOS? Did the behavior continue?

                 

                Let me know your findings.

                 

                Regards,

                Amy.
