I'm new to the PC world so I get nervous at little things. Recently my CPU temps have started to get a little higher than I normally see which does worry me but other say it shouldn't. Underload my temps are 35-50 and whilst gaming can go from 60-75. When I take the side panel off whilst gaming the temps go all the way back down to the 50s-60s. I'm using the Cooler Master - Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler aswell. I would just like to ease this off of me, thanks haha :D

As logain said, add some case fans. 75C for gaming, while fine, is still not great because if you put your CPU under 100% load at all, your temps will spike above dangerous levels.

If adding case fans doesn't work, I'd upgrade the CPU cooler to something a bit beefier like a Dark Rock Pro 4.

Agreed with the comments thus far. They're not great temps, but not horrible either.
If removing the side panel drops your temps by a good ~15'C, then you have an airflow issue. Depending on your case, adding intake fans may/may not help.

Equally, if you're ok with a bit more noise, you could increase the fan speed on your CPU cooler too....

Alright thanks both of you for that, when you say underload 100% do you mean 100% cpu usage in task manager? Because it never hits over 60% usage unless I bench/stress it with cpuz. But Ill look at that cooler also thanks.

Thanks, I was also thinking of upgrading to a better airflow case but don't wanna be spending to much.
