Oooh it's amazing what happens when you flip your CPU heatsink around to match the flow of air through the case. (Didn't realize it until I tested it)


Dropped 10C off my max temp with all the fans turned down and the front intake turned off.

my CPU is at about 53C idle and goes up to 95C after 2 minutes load with OCCT even after cleaning+underclocking.. is it toast?


What are you cooling it with?

What's the ambient air temperature?

Have you replaced the thermal grease?

If you have, how old was the tube you used?

Is your fan working? (Or radiator fan if you're liquid)


All things to consider.

yeah its summer here and late evening. During winters it hangs around 26degree idle :)

I've notices it 10 degree more than the room temp. So i reckon its normal
