Wondering if this temp is ok?

 Share

Just installed my new processor and was wondering if these temps are good when i'm gaming on heavy loads like overwatch on ultra it runs about 70-71c max and other games around 60c give or take. its a ryzen 2600x btw thanks for any input.

What CPU cooler do you have? Temps like that aren't ideal, but shouldn't damage the CPU at all.

70c is completely fine for a Ryzen chip. Is it overclocked? It seems higher than normal IF it's stock clocks, but. 

 

What cooler are you using?

what

 

CPUs are rated for 80C nowadays, that "never allow it to go over 60C" thing ended with the P4

ASUS X470-PRO • R7 1700 4GHz • Corsair H110i GT P/P • 2x MSI RX 480 8G • Corsair DP 2x8 @3466 • EVGA 750 G2 • Corsair 730T • Crucial MX500 250GB • WD 4TB

Yeah, you're good. Worry when you're at 90c.

any temp is fine as long as the cpu isn't thermal throttling

Not true, unsafe high temps can lead to degraded silicon, and early failure. Of course, if you sustain the temp. Hitting it and then coming down soon after isn't a big deal.

That's why the CPU thermal throttles before it reaches those unsafe high temps.

I disagree with you. But okay.

How can you disagree with me about a fact?

Silicon degradation is also not an opinion.

The cpu will thermal throttle (forcefully downclock) before temperatures rise to silicon degradation levels. 

 

If temperatures go even beyond thermal throttle levels, it will forcefully shut down the system. 

 

What are you not understanding? I'd be happy to explain.

Silicon degradation happens 24/7, 365, if the CPU is powered. I said he'll speed up the process. 

 

Read up, kid.
