I'm checking the Core temperature using CoreTemp utility in Windows while gaming (GTA4, Batman Arkham City 2) on the following hardware:
- Intel i7 2600 (LGA 1155)
- Asus P8Z68 PRO/GEN-3 Mobo
- 8×2 GB Corsair DDR3 RAM
- Gigabyte Nvidia Geforce GTX 570 1.25 GB DDR5 Graphics Card
- Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 600W PSU
A few minutes into a graphics heavy application or game, Coretemp reports maximum temperatures of each core reaching a maximum of 98 Degrees Celsius. After that while still gaming, it slowly comes down and each core stabilizes at temperatures between 75 to 90 Degrees celsius depending on the usage.
Are these temperatures normal ?
