I have a AMD 1GHz with the ASUS K7V-133 borad. Motherboard Monitor 5 says the case temp is 33 degrees cels and the CPU 55 degrees. I use a Thermosonic ThermoEngine cooler but used a Thermaltake Silver ORB before with the same results. Also I use Arctic Silver thermal paste instead of the standard pads. No overclocking or other tricks.
Question, isn't this too high for this type of setup? If so, what could be the reason, ie. what could I check?
I HAVE A 1.2 OVERCLOCKED TO 1.33. MY TEMP RUNS AS HIGH AS 55 CELCIUS WITH THE STANDARD AMD FAN (BOXED VERSION). I WAS TOLD BY A TECH THAT THIS IS OK. CHANGED CASES, ETC WITH NO IMPROVEMENT. HEARD GOOD THINGS ABOUT SOME OF THE HIGH PRICED FANS, BUT WHY SPEND $45-80 ON A FAN. YOU CAN REPLACE YOUR CPU FOR THAT PRICE.
