    i5 4570 temps

    Suporet

      Hello people, i have got a situation.

       

      I cleaned my i5 4570 with stock cooler yesterday since it had some dust and had been almost a year since the last time I cleaned it. I was curious about my CPU temps so I ran Core Temp. I was getting about 50 °C idle and +- 73 °C while playing The Withcher 3 1080p maxed for about and hour. I don’t have data before I cleaned my PC.

       

      I did not remove the cooler. GPU temps are fine. I also checked the BIOS and sad that CPU temp was at +- 31 °C while starting.

       

      Are this temperatures ok, or they are a little high? What should I do if those temps are to high?

          Hello, Suporet:

           

          The maximum temperature for your processor is 72.72°C, any number under that parameter is completely fine. Now, could you please take a screenshot of the Core Temp while playing the game?

           

          When was the last time you re-applied thermal grease to your processor?

          Are you setting your cooler to max speed?

           

          Regards,

          Amy.

            Thanks for your reply Amy.

             

            I bought this CPU 2 years ago and since then I have never re-applied the thermal paste. Currently the fan is running at turbo, the highest option available on Bios.

             

            I took 2 screen shot, one was taken 10 minutes after I started playing and I took the second one an hour after that.

            Please let me know if you need more information.

              Thank for the screenshots.

               

              Tj Max temperature for your processor is 100°C, the temperatures on the screenshots are expected, as long as they stay under 100°C your system would be fine.

              Regards,

              Amy.

                Thanks for your help.

                 

                Edit:

                If someone comes across this post and has the same "issue".

                 

                I re-applied the thermal paste on my computer's CPU today and my system temps lowered by about 10 °C. Looks like 2 years old thermal paste will never be as efficient as a brand new paste so please consider re-applying thermal paste to your CPU.
