    what is the standard heat for idle

    upgraded my cpu cooler to a AR06 from a stock cooler from intel. My idle heat for it is around 40-60 celsius, is this normal? Also when playing a game like CS:GO the heat is on 60-80 celsius, again is this normal.

    gtx 1060 with 500w psu

    I currently have a gtx 750ti gpu with a 500w psu. I have an asus 970 pro gaming/aura motherboard with an amd fx 8350 processor. Now my question is: would a 500w psu be able to support a gtx 1060 gpu with all those other components? (I also have a cpu fan, 3 case fans and an LG disc reader)
