I bought my PC recently, and I noticed that my system temperature is pretty high. I ran multiple tests with AIDA 64, HWInfo and HWMonitor and they all showed some problems which I do not know to solve on my own.
First of all, my CPU voltage is not stable and can go very very high. For example while playing some games, the voltage hits up to 1.5V and so the temp hits for about 72C. I'm using a stock Spire cooler so this is very dangerous. I tried to change my CPU voltage in my motherboard to 1.2V but to no avail. My PC started, it loaded up my config and the screen turned off while the EZ debug led lighted up.
I never tried overclocking but I changed the curve of my GPU fan speed, as it was also getting hot during gaming.
One last thing, a small red led is always lit up between my CPU socket and RAM. I asked about its purpose to a technician and he said to me that it shows that my motherboard is getting power. I thought it was a little bit ridiculous and I still don't know its purpose. Maybe it's an indicator for over voltage?
My specs: Ryzen 1500x with Spire cooler
GTX 1080 graphics card
8x2 2400 mhz ram
MSI b350 mortar motherboard
650w 80+ power supply
Windows 10 as OS
I can provide pictures of my system and its benchmarks/monitoring
I built my PC a couple days ago. I have:
i5 4690k (cm hyper 212 evo cooled)
GTX 970 (reference card)
I have been gaming on it pretty heavily since I've had it. I feel like I can get more out of the CPU because I did buy an
MSI Z97-G45 Motherboard and a 4690k.
So I overclocked it to about 4.4ghz with 1.2v
I've been running the stress test with aida64 trial and my temps are a bit confusing to me.
So Idle I have around High 30's to Low 40's (degrees Celsius)
But, with the stress test being running for about 17 minutes now i'm getting Mid to high 60's (66-69) It rarely hits 70
Oh and I don't think my fans are running too fast
So are these normal temps? How long should I keep this test going? And should I keep it overclocked? Thanks
