Just for Reference my build:
i5 4590 3.3 ghz
8 gb of 2400 mhz ram
Nvidia GTX 980
Simplified: cpu idles at 80 degrees celsius and goes over 100 degrees celsius during gaming. Is it my stock cooler or the cpu that is the problem?
Hey guys, I've been having some really bad performance issues pertaining to gaming on my computer, like ridiculously bad for the build I have. So I took my computer in to a repair shop and they told me that my performance issues stemmed from my CPU overheating to over 100 degrees celsius when playing any kind of game and idling at around 80 degrees celsius which is as equally as ridiculous. So they told me the solution was to purchase a new heatsink that is better than the intel stock cooler and that the problem should subside but I was wondering if maybe that it's not the cooler but the CPU because reaching 80 degrees celsius while idling is completely ridiculous and does not make a lot of sense to blame it completely on the stock cooler.
