ouch! the cpu shouldn't be that high if the case is that low.
normal temp can range between 35C to 70C for both areas concerned, but they both should fall under similar temps, i.e case:43C and cpu: 47C approx.
you better check that your HSF if fitted properly on the cpu before you do any damage to it.
it'll heat up even more when you start playing games and using other software that takes up a lot of cpu resources.
yea those temps are high, my system under full load (wich it always is cause I run SETI 24/7) runs case 36, CPU 44. More than likley the comp has a factory heatsink and fan, which are just enough so the pc doesn't melt down but are by far sub-standard for todays computing/gaming enviroment. I would look into upgrading these asap.
For MBM 5 if you goto their site they list many setup configs for different mobo's. So I would check that out and see if your mobo is listed and set MBM accordingly, if not then you have to use trial and error and see which settings are the closest to the Bios readings.
Not trying to be offensive, but many companies/folks play up the number of fans in their/a case, but the air-flow design means more than the number of fans. You could have 20 fans, but if the air flow design is poor, the cooling effect will be poor. Where as you could have 2 fans but an excellent air flow design that will keep a system much cooler than having those 20 fans.
I have 3 case fans plus the PSU dual fans, I spent alot of time working on the air flow design and it is still not as good as it could be.
Maveric, you sound just like me
I spent a while working out how to get best cooling, I have round cables etc to maximize it.
And to top it all off I have blue case lighting
I have a blue sound activated cold cathode tube, and my 3 case fans are blue too!
I dont know the model #.
I even dont have a internal pic.
I'll just desribe it.
1 fan on the side.(where you open the cpu to put hardware etc.)
1 fan below the power supply.
Power supply is above the cpu fan.
1 fan below the vid card.
1 fan at the back of the power supply.(the one that comes with it already)
