    i7 4790k high temps???

    DreadGTR

      The temperature of my Intel reaches a maximum of 80 degrees Celsius under heavy load.

      Playing GTA V at ultra settings results in an average of 70-80 degrees Celsius is this normal and safe for an i7 4790k? It also drops to 60 very quickly after going in windows mode. When I pause the game it drops to 65-70.

      I downloaded Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool and all tests passed.

      Also I am using the stock cooler on it and it works.

      Temps at idle are like 30-35 degrees

      Shall I upgrade my cooler to a better one?

      My case also has 4 vents and the airflow isn't bad at all, I think...

      The cpu frequency is 4,0, so it's not overclocked!
