    Oh Dear,

    Just got MBM and doesn't look too good!

    Ignore the text above the temperatures they are guesses, my system had been up since about 9am to bout 5pm when I took that screenshot on low load running basics - MSN - KaZaA - ZoneAlarm - AVG.

    Now where is that 82 Degrees taken from? it has never overheated or smelled bad.

    It had 3 80mm Case Fans, a Dual PCI Fan Sucking heat from the components and a dual HD Fan with a system temperature monitor and a evercool heatsink.

    Can someone tell me if that sensor is rite?

    My Spec:
    Athlon 1700XP
    256DDR RAM
    GeForce 2 MX
    Soundblaster 16 PCI
    ISDN Fritz!

    My System is not overclocked!

    Cheers

    Adam :(

    If your system was really 50C you should be able to warm your house of it, When using the PC at high levels I have no heating on and monitor the temps closely. I did once have to reapply the HSF to get it to work correctly.

    Those RPM readings are still wrong. 67500? I'm not sure a plastic fan can stay in the form of a fan at that speed if you know what I mean. ;) Jet engine! I'd believe 6750 though.

    Mine's running at 54 degrees right now, which is a little above normal, but Athlons running in the 50s are nothing to worry about...it's pretty normal. Also depends on how the ambient room temperature is. If it's about 60 degrees, then I'd worry, but until then, try investing in a better hsf and some artic silver 3. I'm just using the stock cooler now, but plan on upgrading later.

    HELL YEA

    Caution - Extemely Low System Temp!!!

    Just move my pc onto my desk and wooohooo check out the new temps :D

    Ignore the 82 Degress that is a broken sensor, if i put ice on that sensor it goes to minus 55 degrees lol.


    Adam :p

    Check it:
