Just noticed my MOBO CPU temp alarm went off while playing Far Cry 3. The alarm beeps when it reaches 60C, I got to 64C. This summer heat is killing my overclocking! I already lowered the core speed by 100MHZ to 4.4GHZ. Now I had to increase my cpu fan speed a bit too.
after, I ran prime and furmark. I was reaching 69C core, and 85 with my GPU(overclocked too)
Of course this is like the worst possible heat scenario for a pc, but still, its only 75F(94% humidity so it feels really hot) outside, and when I did this 2 months ago my max temps were below 55C for core. Thats with my case fans on silent though, with turbo it lowers everything about 4C, and is still quieter than the fan in my window. The GPU is always fine temp wise, nothing works it as hard as furmark, so I expect high reading, even though before it was 10C cooler
All in all is doing ok though for a moded stock cooler, with the stock 70mm fan ripped out, a 120mm cooler master fan zip tied on, and aluminum foil to channel the air...
