I just upgraded to an i7 4790k from an AMD FX 6100… my computer performance is now more than twice as good but, i do have a cpu temperature question.
My projects are typically in the electronic pop space… hence have loads of instrument and fx plugins.
My i7’s temperature (according to speedfan) ranges between 70 degrees Celsius when idle to 80 degrees while exporting a mix-down. Now I know the Intel literature says this is a safe temp to operate at. However, I have seen many reports on the net which suggest it shouldn’t be so high.
So, my question - is this temperature too high as it is constantly hovering at this level? Should I look at getting a cooling system? Or do you think its ok to operate at these levels.
Any inputs would be greatly appreciated.
