Bro, medium settings for 40+ fps. i suggest to play the game in dx9 on 720p res for smooth gameplay. make sure installing the 1.9 update for better performance. ;)

I googled it ,My idle CPU's temp is higher than the normal temps mentioned on intel's site but my CPU doesn't overshoot the maximum.I'm thinking about applying the PRIME95 test to see my maximum temperature.

That's what I thought. It isn't enough. Well I take that back, it is ENOUGH, but it isn't going to keep it cool. I recommend getting a third party fan.

Man@Abd1996, If you use a aftermath cpu cooler[from cooler master] then your cpu temperature will drop significantly as it is better than stock cooler. Does your pc makes noise when playing games?

I'm going to say no. The max temp for your processor is 67C, but you are getting temps of 75C.


What is going to happen is your CPU will degrade a lot faster. I'd say do VERY light gaming for only an hour or so and then let the computer take a break for a while. Get a third party fan when you can!

I read that when gaming intel's processors can reach 90C and it still safe. Also what do you mean by "degrade a lot faster"?do you mean in performance?

Degrade meaning death. Your specific CPU's max temp is 67C BEFORE it begins to burn up. It won't be instant. It takes a while.
