Question i9 11900K High Temperature?

Oct 24, 2022
Hi, I have an Intel Core i9 11900K and I would like to know if the temperatures it has are normal, I use that CPU in conjunction with a RTX 3060 Ti. It is worth mentioning that I have it on a Gigabyte B560M DS3H V2 motherboard, I did not buy a motherboard with Z chipset because I already had that motherboard and I thought it would work for me, since I do not plan to Overclock.

When the computer is idle the temperature is at 45 - 50° and when I am playing some demanding game the temperature goes up to 65 - 70°. My cooler is a Cooler Master MasterAir MA410M.

I have tried Undervolt but it always crashes the system, even if I set -0.050 or -0.020 on the offset voltage. Does it affect that my motherboard has no Z chipset?

I have tried lowering the TDP with Intel XTU to 90W - 110W (turbo boost power max - turbo boost short power max) and sometimes it crashes games but not the system.

What can I do to lower the CPU temperature or is normal?
