i'm also reading complaints of this cpu either running hot at idle, or "burning out" in time.
if you're using a stock cooler, you can debate getting a better one. at that point though, it might be worth considering upgrading.
after replacing thermal compound, re-check HWMonitor and you can better judge from there.
just watching youtube in regular mode, comments and all on my tiny 17 inch monitor @ 720p, it never lagged or got loud but it went up to 107C. i can run d2 with zero issues and never above 60C
havent had a chance to redo the thermal yet. perhaps this weekend. but my new monitor will be here within the next two days so might try to squeeze some time in on friday for changing the paste.This post was edited by n9neballking on Jan 21 2020 08:12pm
