    How are your temps so low......Do you live in antarctica or something??

    BTW the your temps aren't are good enough and wont affect your cpu at all. If you still have doubts then try and run a benchmark and compare it with others with similar cpus online...:)
  2. Well that can be due to your temp sensor is giving incorrect readings. Do you still have the stock heatsink? Also do you get any temp errors in game or in a temp program? If not then your cpu might be running at that low of temps. Anything above 85-90 will start to hinder performance and cause worries, but lower temps typically dont cause issues.
  3. I think it is from 60 C and lower you can suffer from the "coldbug"

    A cold bug needs much lower temps.....Cold bugs usually occur at temps below -20 C....So he isn't suffering from one

    Yeah his temps arent low enough to cause issues like that, I'm running at 55C and am looking into a new cooler because that is actually starting to get on the higher end.
  6. I'm using a CPU Cooler Hyper N520 I was using the Intel stock fan and I had literally 65-75c at full load
  7. Well that might be a faulty sensor or you are one of the luck few who can run at that level. You can try yo use RealTemp and run that while playing a game to get a data set, if it shows the same then you have some serious overclockability
  8. BTW what are your specs???
  9. Oh i ment -60 C
  10. What program are you using - and does bios say the same temp?
