Hello, so I just want to know if these temperatures are normal for my CPU.

I have an i5-3470, GT 1030, and a 240w psu.

So when I'm idle, my CPU temperature is around 50-60c.

When I'm gaming, my CPU temperature is around 70-85c.

Is this normal?

UPDATE: So I cleaned my PC and when I play games or I'm idle, I get around 50-60c

What games are you taxing the system with? Those temps at idle don't look right and the taxed system temps don't look right either when you look at the GPU and PSU used.

240W PSU? Are you shoehorning a discrete GPU in a small form factor prebuilt like the Dell's OptiPlex? If so, please revert back to a non discrete setup since you will be damaging the entire system.

1. I mostly play Roblox and SCP: Secret Laboratory.

2. Lenovo M92p SFF

Also, I'm thinking of upgrading to a 300-350w PSU, still doing research.
