i have i7 7700k 4.2 ghz processor with gtx 1070 graphic card and 16gb ddr 4 ram.. I recently started playing COD Warzone and i saw that i am not getting the optimum frames that i should be getting so someone told me to record gpu/cpu temperature.. my gpu temperature was quite normal averaging around 73-74 average but my processor temperature is going quite high averaging 93-94.. what should i do in such a situation ? please tell me all the possible solutions.

Thankyou.

Check in Bios settings that the integrated GPU - Intel HD Graphics 630 is disabled and the NVIDIA adapter is enabled.

  1. Yes, looks that your NVIDIA card is enabled and is disabled. Those are correct settings.
  2. The temperature shown in Bios are not reflecting the CPU temperatures under load.
  3. I can't help you more, except to advise you to check the cooling fan if is working correctly and if it is clean from dust (so, the air inlets and outlets).

Intel will tell you that these temperatures are perfectly normal and acceptable when stressing the system.

 

As Leon indicated, never go by the temperatures you see in BIOS Setup. This environment is radically In BIOS Setup, all power management features of the processor are disabled and the processor is simply spinning in a loop when it has nothing to do

 

I wonder if these temperatures are the result of Software Rendering being enabled. Check the configuration for your game and make sure that GPU Rendering is enabled.

When the temperature is 94c, what is the fan doing? It *should* be spinning at full speed. If it's *not* spinning at full speed, then you know that the problem is that the fan response is improperly configured (you configure set this in BIOS Setup). If, on the other hand, the fan *is* running at full speed, then you know that it's not being effective. In this case, since you've removed what dust you can, it is time to remove the heatsink-fan unit and replace the TIM.

Hope this helps,
