    CPU Temp Questions

    Hi All

    I checked with RealTemp GT (believe is multi core part of it) was going up to the High 70's and 80's, Ambient Temp of apartment around 75F (room doesn't feel hot to myself, just comfy) Running Windows Defender for moment, (not sure if that could raise the temps or not) Was not running a full scan or nothing

    was Watching video on youtube, and using Secondlife game (Firestormx64 viewer)

    (Dust clean out done a month ago, and another planned for tomorrow morning)

    Power Plan: Balanced, so temp goes up and down based on load/turbos when needed I think

    Normal idle temps around 40-45C with my Intel I7 7700
    Load Temps seen around 70C-78C when gaming

    Video card unknown temp

    anything i should worry on?

    Temps have cooled down now, closed discord, and Netflix video app, maybe that was the cause, I got not much of a clue, as still new sorta to Intel Processors, (just had this system just over a year now).

    P.S. Hard to clean video card fan, as darn Asus bracket gets in the way

    I don't see anything there that rises to the level of "anything I should worry on". Mid 30s idle with few applications running. Maximums below 60 other than when gaming. You are a long way from TJ Max temps.

    I assume you are not the type who obsesses over temps for their own sake and believes that reducing temps from 43 to 39 is a worthwhile way to spend money and time. If you are such a type, then by all means get on with it.

    I have an Intel i5-6600K that idles in the high 20s in a warm 81 degree Fahrenheit room--6 degrees warmer than your room.

    Mine right run cooler than yours due to me having a 120 mm intake fan as well as 120 mm exhaust, not having a video card at all, and a case that may be more conducive to cooling than yours.

    And your CPU cooler is unknown and may be good, bad, or mediocre.

    Intel i7s might run a bit hotter than i5s also.

    You might download and use HWInfo64 to get a bit more granularity on temps, fan speeds, voltages, HD health, etc.

    80C is fairly high but still within Intel's 100C limit for the i7-7700.

    But as ignatzatsonic said, you would need to look at the long-term temperature trends. Just checking the max value doesn't tell you much because the temperature might have spiked to 80C for a few milliseconds but otherwise remained much lower.

    As I was writing this my laptop CPU hit a max of 89C but an sits at an average of 59C. From HWiNFO:

    Well Not Sure 100 percent what caused the temp spike, but did do dust clean out this morning, wasn't much Dust at all

    Processor heatsink is stock Heatsink whatever Asus used on the G11CD-K Desktop

    1 Exhaust Fan in addition to Power Supply Fan, Not sure if space for intake fan

    Large Side Vent

    Not the user that obessed with temps, just wanna make sure stays in normal ranges for my daily tasks and usage of the system

    You might try blocking the side venting.

    Or changing the exhaust fan.

    Or changing the stock cooler.

    Or confirming if you can add an intake.

    All of that depending on your level of concern and budget. Cooling generally requires experimentation, so you might be surprised at what helps, hurts, or has no discernible effect at all.

    Well Will check it out more, and go from there at this point...Hoping the cabling is strength up enough done best I can there with that, Case isn't the best, but wanted to go back to Intel when I got some money in August 2017, so by September picked out a Prebuilt with the right specs, and went for it.

    Hardware isn't really my strong point as yet, I know a little bit, but changing a Processor heatsink/fan setup i'd probably feel more comfortable having a local shop tackle that, who knows I might even have them install my future new video card at same time, Planning on Possibly Geforce 1070 or 2070 depending on price/budget (maybe blower card--but not positive on that yet)

    This is my first Intel based system I've used regularly since 2003, previously used AMD based systems up til September 2017

    Off the top of my head:

    If you intend to get a new video card, I'd probably re-evaluate after that.

    I wouldn't be concerned at all with your current temps.

    That appears to be a puny cooler, so you could likely knock 10 or 15 degrees off temps with a mid level single tower replacement cooler if your new video card increases temps beyond your comfort level. Cost probably under $75 plus whatever a shop charges for the installation.

    Thank you so much for your replies, Here is what HWinfo64 shows (Motherboard temp i think is maybe faulity sensor, not sure) always showed in the 100C range ever since got system--in September 2017)

    Possibly last post and considered this matter solved I think

    HWINFO has some way off readings obviously and likely can be ignored.
    Even cpu package there are two reading and only one is probably close the other can be up to 10c higher.

    RealTemp is good.
