I just recently redid my cpu cooler which was a dark rock 4, reset it and gave it some new thermal paste because i was getting 95c while playing games like anthem and battlefield. Im now sitting at a pretty steady 80c while playing these games and was just wondering if this is about what I should expect from air cooling this cpu. The cpu is turbo'd up to 4.9ghz when playing these intensive games. I would love to watercool but this is my only option and since im coming from an i5 6600k im not really sure what to expect in terms of tempatures from this.

ya you have that thing cranked @4.9 which is fine as your temps are reasonably safe, if you had an AIO or custom loop I think 5.0 might be doable after the delid
