I have an i7-8700k, with a cooler master hyper 212x heatsink. There is a game in particular that puts the cpu at 85-90% and with peaks of 85º. Do I have to worry? THANKS A LOT!!!

Hello JTASC1

 

Thank you for posting in the Intel Community.

 

The Intel® Core™ i7-8700K Processor has a TDP of 100°C, for the temperature that you are reporting it should be fine, nevertheless, you can take a look at overheating symptoms and troubleshooting for Intel® Boxed Processors.
