|I use CPUID's HW Monitor to keep an eye on temps in my system. CPU temp, fan speeds, GPU temp, and even hard drive temps are shown! |
Also with most custom-built systems, CPU thermal output is also shown. it's a little misleading, because you'd think it's power consumption. but it's not, it's thermal output because my CPU varies between 23 watts (thermal) and 151 watts (thermal), I've been keeping tabs on electrical use and between idle and full load there's only a 6 watt electrical use difference!
There might also be some gap between CPU temp and core temps. I don't know what to make of it. if I go by CPU temp (same as reflected in BIOS/HW Monitor) CPU temp is 10C less.
I go by the higher core temp.
your temps are better than mine- 45C during gaming is nothing to be concerned about. mine gets up to 52-55C.
idle temps are good too- 33C means you have good airflow and a good heatsink.
if you're using air cooling, temps will vary a little season to season- if your area has seasons. I'm in So Cali, there's hardly any seasons. in winter my CPU idles 28C load 48C. in summer it idles 30C load 55C. (room temp 70F in winter, 82F in summer) if I had seasons, like snow in the winter, during winter temps will be very low, during summer temps will on the high side, based on the temperature of the air in the room the computer's in.
