Hey Everyone!
My cpu is currently running at 45C/113F
And my sys is running at 32C/89F

Does this seem acceptable? This was taken after an overnight idle...

Thanks!
-Mike

Damn that's warm for a Intel CPU. My T-Bird runs ~40 C Idle with my system at ~27 C. Make sure you have good contact with your CPU to the HSF. Thermal pad = BAD. AS2=GOOD.

That seems high for a PIII, but I don't know for sure. You might want to research what that baby's rated at.

I am using this program too...lol since i posted it. I noticed that my cpu and system temps were backwards, dead on accurate, just backwards. So I thought it was a bug in the program, so I posted vcool's forum.

It turns out if you go to vcools options, you can change it there. This is the only thing I havent liked about this program. Anyways, in the options In the upper left, you probably have CPU 1 and System 2. Change those to CPU 2 and System 1. Wierd! But effective.

My current temps on asus A7V 1ghz T-Bird:

CPU 35c
System 25c

:p

dear you.. my 1ghz t-bird used to run 50c at idle or full load. So I would say you might be alittle hot but not overboard. I am currently experimenting (3 days) with some software that takes power away from the cpu during the idle state, therefore lowers the temp. This is why mine is so low at 35c. The software seems to be working well, i havent had any performance gain or loss from it. I started using it because at 50c I felt it too hot (personally).

There have been some discussions of whether this software is good for the cpu or bad. I have emailed AMD to ask that question and I have yet to hear back from them on a firm answer (been 2 days). They are probably laughing at me...hehehe Anyways, when I hear an answer, I am going to post there email.

If you want the free software, goto www.vcool.de and download it. This website has pretty good documentation of their software and their own forum to ask questions and things about their software. I recommend you read through the website and try to make your best educational guess on whether to use it or not. I can only say it has dropped me 15c for what I use my computer for (internet/office - no games).

Hope this helps!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
