So I've recently (today) cleaned my PC a bit and changed the CPU thermal paste, cleaned the dust in the cooler etc. When installing it back, put Thermal Paste in a straight line about 5/6 of the CPU width and then installed the cooler. There might have been a tiny bit more paste than necessary. When installing the cooler though, it played a bit since it's not that easy to install. It covers the whole CPU though. Now I've got a little load on it in a RenPy game strictly to test the temps. 5-20% usage, all cores 4.1 - 4.25 GHz, jumping between 47-55 degrees (not freedom degrees, just your average Celsius). Is it ok? Should I be worried it might fry in a game such as AC Origins at max? The GPU is at between 1 - 20 % as well, 1400-1800MHz and sitting at around 44-47 degrees.

CPU: Ryzen 5 2600x
GPU: Zotac AMP! Edition GTX 1080
Cooler: be Quiet! Dark Rock 4

Normal, what's max temp you see at full load ?

About 77 - 80 degrees with Prime95 full load on all 12 threads.


When I built the PC it was running at 25-30 degrees at idle and about 55-65 degrees on full load....would a bad installation lead to such a high increase?
