My temps on my cpu are reaching as high as 85 degress celcius after one game of pubg. Is this safe/normal and if its not how to remedy it. I only have two case fans at the moment (one push one pull) but i plan on adding more once my fan hub arrives.

  1. Have you overclocked your CPU? If so you need to back down a little on it.

    If your CPU is not overclocked then take a look and make sure your cooler is set on the CPU properly and the thermal past is coated across the CPU.

  2. Not exactly the biggest cooler ever, you might consider undervolting to get reasonable temps.

  3. Not to worry... at least too much.
    If temperatures get too hot the cpu will throttle or shut down to prevent damage.
    That is around 100c.

    I would not worry if the temperature occasionally gets past 85c.
    If it is constantly there, worry a bit.

    The problem is that the cryorig C7 is not a particularly effective cooler. Top down coolers rarely are.
    You have only 100mm of cooler headroom so a typical tower type cooler is out.
    Probably the best cooler that will fit is the noctua NH-L12.
    Here is the noctua guidelines for that cooler:

    If you want better cooling, consider installing stronger front intake fans(at the cost of more noise)
    Try taking the case covers off and see how much that improves things.

    Would an AIO with maybe like a 240 rad help at all? I am pretty sure the corsair h100i will fit in my case.

    Yes, a AIO will help a lot. If you can fit it in your case, then go for it.

    I have the Corsair H115i which is the 280mm version and like it very much.
