Area-51 R7, how hot should my cpu and gpu get?

When I’m gaming on my Area 51 the cpu typically goes from 85c-95c does that seem normal? Also does it matter how long I’m playing for? I haven’t played for over an hour yet.

Re: How hot should my cpu and gpu get?

Well depending on your config it should get hot but not to 97c which means it's about to thermal throttle. Set the fans to full speed and elevate the laptop on a cooling pad and remove any overclocks you've done to the cpu and gpu.

That should help.

It's a desktop if that matters at all? How do I adjust the fan speed? Also I haven't done any overclocks on the computer at all.

is the cpu cooler fan working properly?

you should be able to monitor it  and other parameters from within windows using something like hardware monitor.

Oh, I thought it was the laptop because you had posted on the Laptops board. I see that Dell has moved this thread to the correct Desktops board. I’d recommend checking for dust and replacing the thermal paste as those get problematic after a while.
