Are these Hardware temps okay?


Recommended Posts



I am new to overclocking and Hackintosh in general. Here is my build:


Asus P9X79 Pro Motherboard

Intel 3930K i7 - overclocked 4.3GHz

Radeon HD 6870 2GB

SS-1050XM Power

4x8GB DDR3 1600 RAM



Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 140mm SSO CPU Cooler

3 each Noctua NF-P12-1300 120mm Case Fan

Antec P280 case with 3 built in Fans (2 x 120mm on top, 1 x 120mm rear)


I have noticed my CPU temps @ 4.3GHz are around 70- 78 C under stress test/ full load video encoding. I'm new to Overclocking and have read that this is getting into the too hot range and with summer approaching, I am getting worried. Are these temps okay or should I make changes?


I have attached a picture of my temps tonight while running handbrake. Ambient temperature at the time of the screenshot was around 80 F. Any help is greatly appreciated!
