Then again, the software might not be telling you the right temp.

Wow...with a 4000 RPM fan too. Everything is stock? Like you didn't put a custom heatsink or anything on it?

Do PCs usually start off with 46C? I think mine starts at around 35C. Can't remember.

If it isn't going to slow down till it reaches 140C then those temps don't seem so bad. Are they?? :eek:

Look at the numbers. The CPU cooler is fine. The problem is the case temp is through the roof. It should be in the 34-40 deg C range.

What is the room air temp? Your case will be 10-12 deg C above that with good cooling.

You need two inlet fans on the front pulling air in and an outlet fan in the rear exhausting air. Also the power supply has to have a decent fan in it to be the second exhaust fan.

If your case does not support these fans you need a new case period!

If your room ambient temp is too high you are screwed. It will drive the case temp which drives the CPU temp and there is nothing you can do about it (except vapor cycle coolers).

Tell us the room temp. and make sure your fans are all spinning and pointed the right direction. Also, blow out the power supply, fans and case interior if it is more than a year old.

The last item is air flow restrictions. Cheap small cases have ****ty small openings in the front and wide fan guards in the back. These must be opened up to let the fans pull the air through.

PS Pull off the side cover and point a table fan into the PC. See what the GPU and CPU temps are then.

for a first thing just take the side off the case and see what happens when its running, the innards should be the same temp as the general ambient temp then

maybe you mounted your cpu hsf wrong cuz those look like abnormal temps unless you live on the equator and have a computer case with no air vents whatsoever... try removing it and putting a bit of arctic silver 5 on there... and make sure you do everything right--- you should try this before you spend the big bucks modding your system ^_^

if you are building it compound, has a way better heat transfer. :)

What happened to the CPU & GPU temp when the case temp came down 15 deg C?

And yes, the 5800 Ultra is a notorius heat maker.
