Although when I use to use my stock heatsink cooler it was 50-55c and idleing at 40c the highest so yours is kind of hot.What's the idle tempature?It might need some new thermal paste or the fan isn't working correctly.
Pretty much what he said. I think the PC overall (heat inside) should be around 65F (not C) or so. Otherwise if it stays hot too long, the PC will shut-down automatically to stop you from burning out your PC.
Im gonna give my PC for cleaning up the dirt and if my pc still gets like 50 degrees normal heat i`ll save money for new cooling system
50 degrees F isn't really all that high if you're playing a game. It's when it gets to the high 70's is or even really low 80's is when it's really too high. My machine was giving me beeps when it started hitting 82F. I usually had to stop the game (because the stupid buzzer was becoming super annoying and at first I thought it was a stupid virus warning buzzer everytime I tried playing Skyrim), but it was really the heat buzzer yelling at me because my room was too hot. So I have to open my window during the day and turn on a box fan to cool my room down during the afternoon, or my room will turn into an oven, and that's not good for your PC.
I will also say that keeping your room at 68F is a good idea. Preferably without an air conditioner like I have to do it.
