    i5-6400 @ 30C - temperature malfunction?

    Sorry if this is posted in the wrong thread.
    I built this custom build a while back in October of 2016. My concern is that the cpu never goes over 60C even while playing games (skyrim/csgo).Also the cpu sits around 30C when browsing or doing some work (Office/chrome). Do I have a malfunctioning temperature sensor? My room temperature is around 25-30C.
    Everything in the system is running at stock speed. I am using the stock intel heatsink. Only using 1 case fan which sits right beside the heatsink.

    What type of cooling do you have on your CPU? What type of case do you have?

    You can bring those temps down, if you want to but that depends on what CPU cooler your have, what case you have and how many case fans and how they are configured.

    Those are completely normal temps for a "skylake" processor. We have a 6500 and it's the same way.

    He doesn't need more cooling. He's not thinking his CPU is hot, he thinks that's it's reporting being way too cool. Unless you overclock the crap out of these CPU's, the normal Intel fan is perfectly adequate.
