    Hello,

    I'm running a Mac Pro 5.1 2010 model with 2x X5680's under Windows 10 doing heavy gaming with a RX 480 in Battlefield 1 gives me pretty high temperatures to my liking.

    It reaches temps as high as 99 degrees celcius on cpu 1 to 12, cpu 12 to 24 are around 30 to 50 degrees.

    CPU block A is very very hot, and can't be touched, CPU block B is warm but touchable.

    Used Artic Silver 5 as I have always done for 100+ systems, small dot/line.

    Are those temps normal or should I re-apply compound?

    The Mac Pro 4,1 and 5,1s were never designed for dual 130W CPUs. I think you should look to increase the fan RPMs.

    Do you know of any fan control app specific for the Mac Pro under Windows, I know there are alot of apps under OSX like MacFan, but haven't found any that works under Windows.
