New PC overheating HELP

claygardner1
  • 7 months ago

So I'm really new to PC gaming (was a console player forever). I run fortnite and OBS on my PC which makes it very hot. I really don't want to ruin or kill this PC so any advice on how to make it run cooler or parts that would help make it more efficient would be awesome. Also I've only had this PC for 2 months now and have cleaned it a few times. My GPU runs from 60-80% and the "power usage" is at very high for both fortnite and OBS. The CPU usually never goes above 30%.

My build is: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/cyberpowerpc-gamer-master-gaming-desktop-amd-ryzen-7-2700x-16gb-memory-nvidia-rtx-2070-8gb-2tb-hdd-240gb-ssd-white/6315148.p?skuId=6315148

How hot are we talking here? How are you measuring the temps?

65-70 C through the ryzen monitor

Those are fine temperatures when the CPU is under load. As long as you are not seeing temps go into the 80° C territory you are fine.

so it being hot to the touch and making the room hot is ok?

That is normal. High end PC parts generate some heat.

What are the temps the usage looks fairly normal for a unoptimized game.
