I just upgraded from a P4 1.7 Ghz with an intel MB to a P4 3.2Ghz with an ASUS P4P800 E Deluxe MB. I used Motherboard Moniter occasionally with the old one, just to see what kind of temps I was getting. They were REALLY good, compared to what everybody on here usually posts theres at. It was 27-33C kinda range, with two 80mm case fans(1 side + 1 rear), where most ppl on here post 37-45C if I remember right. The problem is, is that my new cpu is at 43-47(depends if the window in my room is open) at idle, and up to 57-63C under load. As soon as I'm done my game, or what ever I happen to be doing it drops back down almost instantly. I'm just worried that I'm doing damage, because the little "warning" sheet that came with the processor says that it wont operate correctly above 57C. I got a new case along with the CPU/MB, that has a 120mm fan in the rear and a ventilation tube type thing that lines up over the CPU fan, to suck in fresh air. I dont see anywhere else obvious that I could put another fan(that would make a difference. Could put one in the top of the case, but I think my PSU (intake fan) has that area covered. I dont think this is a problem of airflow, as everything cools down almost instantly afterwards. Would a third party heat sink/ fan help, or thermal compound help, and if so how much do you think it would help. Thanks in advance Android412 P.S yes I change my MB model in MB moniter.
