  1. So I made my first custom build pc recently and my specs:
    Motherboard: Z97 GAMING 5
    CPU: Intel 17-4790k
    GPU: Gigabyte Geforce G1 GTX 970 4GB
    Ram: 16gb ddr3

    In my MSI software (MSI Command center) it goes around the 85 degrees when I play Battlefield 4 on ultra.
    Is the motherboard temp the same as the CPU temp? and is 85 degrees too much?
    I do use the stock cpu cooler.
    Also I have a 200mm front and a 140mm in the back.

    Download HWiNFO64 and use this software to compare temps. Not saying there is anything wrong with the MSI software, but there is always a possibility that it is not reading the correct temps.
    Also, do you overclock? Overclocking will affect the temps, especially if you are still using stock coolers.
