Hi, i need some help with this situation
I've changed my case and my thermal paste today, but temp doesn't seem to be right to me.
The case is a Cit G-force, the thermal paste noctua nt-nh1.
Temps in idle are 38-41 C
Temps in the witcher 3 are around 65-70 C!!
During intel burn test at very high settings, with 10 tests, temps never reach more then 71C.
Temps in my town (Naples) are around 25C
Is this normal? I can't say what temps where before... :( Help !

The intel website is confusing. Actual maximum temperature is 100°C, but CPU starts automatically powering down above 90

If you still worry... Try taking the side off your computer case and playing Witcher. If your temperatures are lower with the side off, you need a better case fan

My i5 hits 78°C on core 2 during stress testing. (other cores are cooler)
This is about the sensible maximum.
Therefore you are OK.
But occasionally check your temperatures, because you don't want to get any hotter than me...

They are lower indeed..... My case can utilize up to 6 vents, two in front already installed and the classic one on the back. I'll try to put some that put wind from the bottom to the top, and one at the top?
