I recently changed both my mb and cpu, my specs are in the spoiler, and I'm wondering if the cpu is ok or if it is malfunctioning.
My cooler is a simple Cooler Master Hyper 212EVO and my case is a Itek ITGCR03. I have added to the case a back fan (out mode) and a lateral fan (in mode), the cooler fan is blowing the air to the back fan
I'm not an heavy gamer but I'll use the pc for some machine learning during the next month, nothing too big but I will train some networks and the process takes hours. I already tested a simple training and my CPU temperature went around a stable value of 70°C (+-10C). The fact is that during this training sessions, the cpu usage isn't even at 100% and both MB and GC (wich is useed too) are at least around 10 degrees less (actually even in idle my processor has higher temperatures then MB and GC).
A big factor that I should mention is that one of the cooler's screw isn't working (the case nut is broken), could this be a big factor (to me it seems that the cooler is well pushed down even with 3/4 screws but I could be wrong)? I can't really find online a replace to fix it (I haven't found the nut and the inner screw dimensions) and to get a liquid cooler I would have to change the case too, I'm willing to do it but only if necessary.
The screenshot I posted is from a 30 minutes IDLE (just browsing) with AI SUITE 3 on Power Saving mode (I use the software to control my fans)
To recap, is the temperature too high (do you need more tests/data)? If so, what do you think is the cause?
PS: I initially used not a lot of thermal paste, then noticed the next morning high temperatures during the mentioned training and so I increased the quantity, but I can't really see a difference
PPS: my room temperature is around 27-28 degrees
PPPS: in the screenshot the highest spike is around 70°C for temperature and 5GHz for max core fr
