Quick CPU and GPU temperature question

shenfreyshenfrey Member UncommonPosts: 114

Is under 50c on the GPU and CPU good while playing this game? It seems SO hot to me, I don't really know much about PCs and my friend came round and wanted to know about my new PC, I told him my temps and he seemed surprised. 

Should I be worried or are they fine?

    50c is fine on both counts.

    I would use some compressed air on your CPU/GPU heatsink if it is dusty at all.

    Lol I missed the "new PC" part :)

    That really depends on the model and speed of your CPU and your cooling system, but 50c while playing a game like GW2 look  ok to me......  My I7-980x is around 35c on  idle if I remember correctly, so 50c while playing  a game is perfectly normal.

    For a videocard to be under 50c while playing any game is very good, and same for the GPU

    but first tell us what is you Rig,

    Video Card

    Motherboard

    Processor,

    ram

    heatsink/cooler on the Cpu?

    How many fan and what the case you have,

    Any cooling on the cpu?,

    Overclocked always mean more heat, and you are under 50c

    You should not be worry ,

     

    I got gtx 770 and i am at 50c while playing GW2 and its not overclocked.

    My cpu is AMD FX-8350 and iam at 30c idle and around 40c While playing game. not overlocked.

    I am using a watercooler, its a loop one I believe. H100i

    So you most be around 35c idle ? while overclocked? I think you are good,

    Yeah, well around 25-30c. My GPU is around 30c.

    You are fine.

    If you want to reduce heat use frame limiter at 30 FPS, thats what i do, theres really no need to run at higher FPS and my temps are below 40 degrees on Phenom II @3,8GHz and R9 270x on air cooling (i started to really like frame limiters and use them in any game available).

    It under options tab.

    There are some exceptions, but for the most part:

    Anything under 90C is "acceptable" - most chips have an engineering limit of around 95-97C. You don't see this often except in laptops/really compact stuff, or people really pushing their overclocks to the limit.

    Anything under 70C is where most people are comfortable, and this is what most OEM manufacturers will aim their heatsinks and such for (like the stock one Intel includes).

    Anything under 50C while under full load is very good, and most people down around here are either shooting for a really quiet rig, or have a bit more room to bump up on the overclock.

    Mine run at 75ish (laptop) under heavy gaming load with the processor toned down via power settings so yeah 50 under load sounds perfect.
