It is high, read Intel Xeon e3-1230v3 too hot? [Solved] - Intel - CPUs

Quote:
Ideal temps:
30-40C idle 0-10% load.
40-45C browsing/ streaming 10-30% load
45-55C medium gaming/ video converting 30-60% load
55-65C heavy gaming/ vfx/ video rendering 60-80% load
65-72C super heavy usage 80-100%

Those are with a stock or very weak cooler, reduce 5C for a powerful CPU cooler. 10C for liquid cooling.
Check whether the heatsink is seated firmly and that the fan is spinning. Did you build this PC yourself? What was the temps before?

I dont know what the temps were before I just detached and reinstalled the heatsink however I dont have any thermal paste at the moment. Could the fact that there is no new thermal paste applyed to the heatsink cause issues. I checked the temps after trying to play a game and realizing it was going sluggish. I am going to try and play the same game and see what happens I just assumed it was the cpu temps that caused the lag in the game? When it gets hot can that cause changes in the smoothness of gameplay ?

Yes of course, high temperatures (every CPU model's high is different) will throttle the CPU in order to eliminate damage. Lack of a thermal paste will affect temps but shouldn't be as high as your case. Definitely try re-seating the heatsink.

Do download HWInfo and start with sensors-only. It will show you if any throttling occurs.

Do Not run your computer until you get some thermal compound applied properly and the cooler install properly. You will make a toaster out of your cpu and motherboard.

I booted up my pc this morning and here are my temps on idle with nothing open besides chrome. I am going to play around with it for a full day today and give you guys the results at the end of the day. I restocked or should I say reinstalled my heat sink yesterday. I noticed that when playing dota 2 my cpu would stay between 97-100 degrees and never went over 100. However I am sure that's unsafe going to start the day doing basic things like browsing, then move into some cg artwork then maybe a game or two to see what happens. Thanks for all the advice I have gotten so far it has really helped.
