Firstly bear with me please I'm not that techy and don't have a lot of knowledge on this stuff!
I have a PC with:
Windows 8.1 64-bit
Trinity 32nm Technology
8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 800MHz
Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. F2A55M-DS2 (P0)
1024MB ATI AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series (Gigabyte)
119GB SAMSUNG SSD 830 Series ATA Device (SSD)
ASUS DRW-24B5ST ATA Device
About a month ago it started to freeze up start shutting down on it's own so I emailed the retailers as it is still under warranty and told them it was going up to 74° and shutting down.
During service they replaced the mother board and returned it.
Firing it up again the last 24 hours it's still around 55° idle and if I just have a few Chrome tabs and an application running it shoots around 70-85°. I emailed them:
One quick question, my CPU temp is still pretty high. Idle it's sitting around 55 deg. But as soon as I do something like open up poker, a facebook game and open my email it shoot's straight up to 70-80c.
Is this safe long term or is something going to fry eventually?
And recieved back:
Those temperatures are perfectly fine for a full 100% load scenario.
Idle temps are a bit high but for an AMD its not really high at all.
AMD CPUs are notorious for running hot so do not fret, this is perfectly acceptable.
FYI if you are concerned and want to do something about it you could look into an aftermarket CPU cooler to help control temps better and prolong CPU life.
When it's hitting up around 80° I'm not exactly doing an extreme amount of stuff, playing on Pokerstars, checking emails at one point was 89° using 66% of my CPU...
Basically is this guy legit? Or am I right to assume these temps are way to high and will just fry my PC again.
Thanks, this stuff is over my head!
