    Default HIgh CPU temps

    I just got a new machine, went with the I7, 10700K chip.

    Been flying around NYC and the visuals are great! The problem is, my CPU has been running hot (air cooled only), I have 2 fans, one in front and the one in the back, so my air flow is good.

    My temps have spiked to 85 C (which I know is not good). I am not getting around 50% utilization.

    What can I do to lower the temps (besides NOT flying in NYC), lol

    I just googled "I7 gen 10700K temperature" and 85 C is normal for these CPU's, they're known to run hot.

    Thanks Tim!

    I had thought (dangerous), that anything above 80 C was bad. Just don't want to burn up the new machine

    I believe the max temp for this CPU is 100 C.

    Thx Paul, I've also noticed that it hits these temps in spikes, then settles down. It is not staying constant.

    Is there built in protection to cause the CPU to throttle down if it's get too hot?

    I use the same processor and msfs with almost all at Ultra.
    I think 85c is rather high. Click image for larger version.

    Are you liquid or air cooled?

    Edit-just noticed is that your GPU numbers?

    Air cooled in a 19C room
    This is a screenshot from the free app GPU-z but it shows CPU temp also.
    I include a screenshot of the app, previous was a little unclear.

    I have the same CPU but it's water cooled. My temps run in the mid 20's idle and the top end temp on the hardest working core in MSFS (seems to be core 4) has yet to hit 80c as reported on Core Temp.

    When I'm monitoring the temps during a sim session I rarely see them even in the 60's. That's with ambient temps 20-24 C (high 60's mid 70's F). Right now as I'm typing this I don't have a single core over 29 C.

    My system case has a ton of fans though. It came with 5. One for the PS which is an intake on the bottom of the case, two intakes on the front and two exhaust on the top which are attached to the radiator. I added two more, one more intake on the front and a rear exhaust. That actually took the temps down another 4-5 C, plus brought the GPU temps down as well.

    The CPU and GPU may be rated for much higher temps but the cooler you can keep all the components the more stable they will run and with improved longevity too.

    Thanks! I was wondering what app you were using, will try that out.
