    Thanks alot Lonman :)

    I was kinda wondering that maybe its too high since my crappy Duron 800 was only 36-40c

    What dya think I should set the CPU Thermal alarm threshhold to?
  4. Lonman

    Lonman Bleh!

    65 Celcius. I typically get mine as warm as 70-72 and haven't had any problems. If you get up to 65 you might want to consider getting some quick silver or something... that's what i need to do.

    That means no game playing or anything that would require the CPU to actually work.....:p

    Does that Lian-Li case have a "blow hole"??

    don't you guys use cpuidle? my temps are never more than 40C! I have gotten below 30C when idle... and I only have a midrange hs/fan and an athlon 1.2! try cpuidle.. it works miracles!

    Under full load my CPU reaches 62c. Is this ok?
    I got a Volcano 7+ in the medium setting (5000RPM)

    62 should be fine, I believe XP are rated as high as 90Celsius

    also nobody ever seems to ask if about the location of comp...

    such as is it airconditoned room?(62 then would be high)
    mexico,death valley,sahara(62 would be low)

    use the highest rpm too:) arent those hsf loud as hell?

    62C is high dude, I've got a AMD 1900+ and at full load it's never gone higher than 45C, Room temp around 24C usually, I'd do like what [CpK]Bastid turn up that fan, get that temp down.

    What dya think it would drop down to if I upped my fans speed to HIGH (7000RPM)? Will it drop to 50c under full load?
  17. Gouk

    Gouk Guest

    90c!! Isnt that near boiling point :eek: LOLz!
  18. [CpK]Bastid

    ya i wouldnt want my cpu reaching 90.....but it says clearly on amd website:)....i dont wanna test that temp out tho:)....my board shuts off at 70:).......just thought i'd post that since so many people have questions about amd temps:)

    it might drop it down that far, but I doubt it, do u have the puter in a confined location, because it sounds from that temp u do, and the heat has nowhere to go.

    I hate those computer desks where u put the puter inside a confined area, those are just asking for trouble. ;)

    7000rpm will cool it down a lot though :eek:

    No, i got my PC on a workstation but there is a wall behind which is 12CM away from the rear of the PC base unit.

    Can that be the cause of the high cpu heat?
