I recently built a file server and I am concerned about the idle temps for the processor.
It has an Intel i3-4160 with the Seidon 120v liquid cooler, but my idle temps are around 45-50C. When the processor is under a load, even a small one the temp can spike up to 80-90c. The cooler can quickly get that back down to the mid 70s, but I am still concerned.
I haven't built a system in awhile, but these temps seem high to me.
Any insight would be much appreciated.
