Default Temp. after 10min of gaming

I have a Q9650 processor with Vendetta 2 cooler (stock speed, not overclocked) with GTX 260 video card.

I have just played 10 min of Farcry2 at 1280x1024 very high and i got those temp in
Realtemp 3.0.

CPU : +/- 50 deg.
GPU : +- 70 deg.

is those temp normal for 10 min of gaming...

At idle the program show around 35deg for Cpu and 50deg for Gpu.

I am NO expert, but on stock cooling those look about right... nothing wrong with that. Start to look for better cooling if your gpu goes above around 90, or your cpu goes above 60 (anything higher and you may jeperdize life time on the cpu, dont know if that is a factor for you).

Why do you feel this is true? If the cpu is close to getting damage from heat, it will throttle, and if that isn't sufficent, it will shut the system down, provided you haven't bypassed those protections in bios.

Remember that under stock cooling, in summer, 60 isn't just the norm...it's expected! Nevermind that BOTH cpu and gpu are silicon...why would there be any temperature difference in the maximums they can handle?

Applying better TIM on the GPU's core would help reduce your GPU's temp since the stock TIM on most video cards is crap.

Use OCCT for like 15 minutes to find the max temps of your CPU.

Look at most stock computers (ones you buy from the store). Its not like they have any good ventilation, or fans, and they use the stock heatsink.. they'll get above 60*C.

As I said, I am no expert, and Im just passing on information that I recieved myself. If they can go higher, then dangit, let them go higher . I am only speaking from personal knowledge banks. It was recommended that I keep my CPU under 60 degrees to be sure it doesn't affect the life of the CPU, so thats what I do :)

Well, that info to keep under 60C is whne you've increased voltage a fair amount. I like to keep the same standard...60c-65c, but I'm running 1.45v through my E8400...stock voltage, or 1.3625v and less, I don't think temps should be so much of a concern. 65nm, 1.55v or less...
