Default My e8400 temps...

Hey guys, I was just wondering if my e8400 is running hotter then it should be...



I want to get this thing 24/7 4ghz but my temperatures are getting a little high.

I'm using an OCZ Vendetta 2 cooler in a CM Centurion 5 case.

Is this cpu running hotter then it should be?

Any tips?

I would be more concerned about your gpu. no your temps are fine as long as your max temps there where done with prime95 or occt?

I have a 4850 from the first ish wave with the bad coolers so the gpu's heat isn't a problem. The max temp was found using IntelBurn Test, an alternative cpu stress tester.

the way i would run it is anything below tjmax 20c or lower is not good. so it looks like you can go for more try and see what your temps go to and what you comfortable with
