my cpu is a core i5 7400

cooler is cooler master gemini ii rgb 

on windows doing nothing i get 50 c 

on 50 percent usage i get 70 and on 100 usage i get up to 87 

is it ok?

i changed from intel stock to this cooler four months ago maybe i did too much thermal paste or sth and also the fan is like a bit loose cause its soo big and i couldnt get the last screw to go in

take off the cooler, clean off the cpu and cooler compltley, clean the fan out from dust, Install the cooler correctly with it making full contact with the cpu and you should be fine but otherwise no those temps are not normal

The Gemini is not so big a cooler, I'm not surprised. Still, those are perfectly safe operating temps

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B


Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.


Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)


EVGA G3 thread, Seasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explainedˢsͥˡ ͮuͤ ͬˢgͭ ͦᶰoͤ

It's still much better than the stock cooler which can easily keep temps in check for the 7400.


If by fan, you mean the cooler itself, then the cooler isn't properly installed. Reseat the cooler and make sure that it's evenly and gradually tightened in an X-pattern as opposed to one side before the other.

On a high side, those. What motherboard you have? You can easily lower temps by setting up manual voltage. I can almost bet that's one reason load temps are so high.
