so for some reason i've got high CPU temperature while playing bf1 and call of duty modern warfare 2019 for battlefield i've got 80 degress and COD i've got 70 is it stil fine?. i try to play another game such as War Thunder its below 70 is it something wrong with my cpu or is it because the game require high cpu? PS: and i just changed the termal paste
my PC spec :
CPU: i5-9400f (with stock fan)
GPU : MSI GTX 1050 ti
MOBO: Z390 A pro
RAM : 16gb
PSU : kinda forget i think is 500w
 
Reactions: sizzling

Your computer has to work harder, while gaming. Just like if you chop a pile wood when its 105 degrees out, compared to 65 degrees.

You can cool the room down, and add more cooling, with better air cooler if that has you worried. Or before you game you can turn all your fans to 100%, to see if that helps.

I don't think you have anything to worry about.

sorry for late to reply all of you guys first i just repaste it again the other day my friends said the thermal paste to liquidy(is this the correct terms)?, so i have to repaste it. so right now im only using one fan and i should add probably 2 more and if you guys talk about my room temp without fan or ac probably at 32-33 degrees celcius but if i use fan or AC prbably 18-24 idk is this help or not. i lived in southeast asia btw. and thank you for all the answer
 
Do not worry too much about cpu heat.
The processor monitors it's temperature and will slow down or shut off if it detects a dangerous temperature.
That is around 100c.
Monitor with HWinfo or similar.
It will show you the current, minimum, and maximum cpu temperatures.
If you see a max of 100c, you have a cooler issue and have throttled.

Nothing wrong with the stock intel cooler for a 9400f if you installed it properly.

----------------how to mount the stock Intel cooler--------------


The stock Intel cooler can be tricky to install.

A poor installation will result in higher cpu temperatures.

If properly mounted, you should expect temperatures at idle to be 10-15c. over ambient.


To mount the Intel stock cooler properly, place the motherboard on top of the foam or cardboard backing that was packed with the motherboard.

The stock cooler will come with paste pre applied, it looks like three grey strips.

The 4 push pins should come in the proper position for installation, that is with the pins rotated in the opposite direction of the arrow,(clockwise)

and pulled up as far as they can go.

Take the time to play with the pushpin mechanism until you know how they work.


Orient the 4 pins so that they are exactly over the motherboard holes.

If one is out of place, you will damage the pins which are delicate.

Push down on a DIAGONAL pair of pins at the same time. Then the other pair.


When you push down on the top black pins, it expands the white plastic pins to fix the cooler in place.


If you do them one at a time, you will not get the cooler on straight.

Lastly, look at the back of the motherboard to verify that all 4 pins are equally through the motherboard, and that the cooler is on firmly.

This last step must be done, which is why the motherboard should be out of the case to do the job. Or you need a case with a opening that lets you see the pins.

It is possible to mount the cooler with the motherboard mounted in the case, but you can then never be certain that the push pins are inserted properly

unless you can verify that the pins are through the motherboard and locked.


If you should need to remove the cooler, first run the cpu to heat it up and soften the paste before shutting down and powering off the pc. That makes it easy to unstick the old cooler.

Turn the pins counter clockwise to unlock them.

You will need to clean off the old paste and reapply new if you ever take the cooler off.

Clean off old paste with alcohol and a lint free paper like a coffee filter.

Apply new paste sparingly. A small rice sized drop in the center will spread our under heat and pressure.

Too much paste is bad, it will act as an insulator.

It is hard to use too little.
