Safe temps for an i7 7700K

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all,


I just have a quick question about my i7. So I have an AIO Corsair H100 V2, and some of these temperatures are making me nervous. I do know that the Kaby Lake series tends to run a bit hot, but I just want to make sure that these are safe temperatures.


Right now, I have Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, XD, Mozilla Firefox and Windows Explorer open and these are my temps (Linked in picture).


Sometimes when I am using Unity, my CPU ramps up pretty hot, mid 80's I'd say, and to be fair, the project I'm working on is pretty hefty. Are these safe temperatures? Should I think about upgrading my cooler?

80s is ok, the cpu throttles at 100C, most people like to keep it under 80 at full load, but 85ish won't murder it any time soon
