How to lower CPU temps?
I have an Intel core i7 @7700hz. I have recently upgraded my GPU from a GTX 1070 to an EVGA 2070 Super. In doing so, I’ve noticed that under certain loads (specifically when playing Horizon Zero Dawn) my CPU temps can reach the mid to high 80’s Celsius. The cooling system is a standard water cooling system that came stop with the PC (from Cyber Power PC). I have tried lowering graphic settings in this game, and underclocking the new GPU, but with no results. I have assured that there is plenty of temperature gel applied to the CPU, and the cooling system is installed and working properly. Is there anything else I could do to reduce the max temps of the CPU under this heavy load? How effective would installing a newer cooling system be in this situation?
Thank you very much for any responses.
