Looking for some info for first build

It's a Cyrorig H7 XD  I'm getting about 27-35 C, though I prefer to use F.  Basically, my rig is cooler than I am.  Not to mention, I have 5 case fans running XD 2 intake and 3 outake.  She's always humming next to me but that's ok.

Yeah, all Americans do, but if you say "my PC idles at 85F", no one will know what you're talking about. Also, most software programs use celsius.

Well everyone I've come across has given a choice.    Regardless, I've done some playing and right now, with MSI Afterburner telling me my GPU is pretty much is maxed and my CPU around 40% playing S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky with maxed out settings, I'm getting about 71 on my GPU and 39.5 on my CPU and after about 5 minutes of sitting there.
(For everyone's apparent convenience I'll use the communist metric system :P)

@Cereal5 Sorry, forgot to tag you in my last reply.  I can also say that after a while longer, my GPU till reach 73-74.

Hey, I love the stars and bars as much as the next guy, but for convenience sake I use Celsius. Those temps seem pretty normal. If you start seeing temps in the 80s, then I would try to find ways to keep the card cooler, be it upping the fans, undervolting, lowing clocks, whatever. But at 74C, that's pretty good.

 

Good news over all. You have the RX 580, right? If your CPU usage is around 40%, I would say you have a pretty well balanced system.

@Cereal5  That's good to hear.  I believe my fans automatically speed up when there's more heat because as I start games, it sounds like they rev up.  They're not PWMs, except for the fan on the H7, so I'm not entirely sure.  I think the placement of my fans helps to keep the GPU cool because my case has two mountings on the case panel that blow air directly onto it.  They were annoying to wire up as all my fans were.  Only problem I have with my side fans is them sucking the smoke right off the end of my cigarettes.  I do try and keep my smoke away from my 850 dollar system, usually by blowing it directly into a gap between my desk and the wall.  I was also taken aback by just how dusty systems get.  There's already a good layer of dust on my PSU but I plan on cleaning it out about every 1-2 weeks.

Yeah, I should probably dust out my computer... It's been 2.5 years... when I built it xD as for fans, 3 or 4 pin will both ramp up when temps increase.

Yeah, I'd definitely do that.  My laptop hadn't ever been cleaned and when I finally was able to tear it apart, I found two dust bunnys the size of my thumb in the fan that actually had caused it to stop spinning.  One of them was completely opaque.  Plus I got to see the damage after I'd spilled ham juice on it a few years back.  No wonder it was so crappy XD  It did seem to work a little better but I'm still glad I got this system.  Also I'm gonna upload my build video tonight to Youtube.  It's two hours long XD It took so long that you can see as it gets lighter outside in the background lol

@Cereal5 I do wonder what temps I'd get if I took my system and set it outside.  It's currently -4 C (24 F) outside XD

When you bring it back in it'll kill itself from condensation lol, it's a one way trip.

Oh I know.  Still, wonder how it would heat up lol Also I finally got that build video done.  Here's the link

@Cereal5 Hey man, it's me.  Been a while but I recently developed a question and you've been the most helpful guy here.  So my RX 580 has two HDMI ports and two DisplayPort ports.  Could I plug two monitors via HDMI into my 580 and have them mirror each other?  So I could have a monitor for myself and then another that I could place elsewhere so my friend and brother don't have to look over my shoulder or I have to sit weird so they can see my screen.  I can do a similar thing with my Chromebook if I plug it into a monitor via HDMI where what's on my Chromebook's screen is mirrored on the monitor/TV and I was hoping I might be able to do the same thing with my PC on two different monitors.

Yup. Just right-click your desktop (assuming you're on windows) and select display settings, or search under the start menu, then select the display you want to mirror your main monitor, and under "multiple displays" select "duplicate on x and x"

 

edit: Feel free to PM me, though @-ing me here is fine too, doesn't matter.
