My gaming rig is running really hot when I play normal games. It has started to get high when I got my new 3080Ti. Is 85-90C normal when under load for this setup? Ive read mixed things on the I9 running hot and what not but I don't think that high of temp is healthy for any CPU.

Intel I9 10900KF
RTC 3080Ti
Liquid Cooled w/ radiator fans.
IBUYPOWER case.

That's very hot for a liquid cooled PC.

I would take your cooler off, clean your CPU and re apply new thermal paste. If you bought pre built they may have been chincy on the paste.

90C is safe. Intel says the max temp is 100C: ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/a...0-ghz.html

Better cooling means better boost clocks on modern CPUs. The 10900K(F) can draw over 300w overclocked. Get a better cooler if you want more.

I upgraded to a corsair 240mm 2 fan water cooler and it significantly dropped my temps. I now run about 55-60 Celsius instead of 85-90. Apparently the IBuyPower water cooler has problems clogging up after about a year.
