Heh, I just cant stop modding my case! The best cooler I got was free and involved a trip into the garage. I decided the plastic bottle cut in half and stuck onto my hsf wasnt enough...
I found a long peice of tube that was used on the dryer, very smooth and insulated, just right for the job. I stuck one end of that in my case and put it over the fan on the heat sink and placed the other end out the window...lol My temps dropped 3-6c over my original design. Now idling at 38C with fan on full and 44C loaded.
Overall going from 51C idle and 56 loaded without mods, ive got my self one hell of a cooler!
Well..tell you something
my Palomino 2000+ is 55C idle, and go up to 67~68C full loading, cuz it's SUMMER...geez..
it uses to 50C idel and 60C full load at Winter time
and my pc is at basement..I can't imagine what will happen if my pc is upstair..will it get burned?? lol
Exactly, that's not only too high for your taste, but to my taste as well, I don't like it, but what can I say? since it's stable, I guess it's fine too
I used to open CPU cooling program when i'm not doing things intensive, so the cpu temperature drops down to ~43C
but again, when I have to play 3D games, I have to turn that program off, otherwise it will usually crash.
When I come back from gaming, it goes up to 65C..
I never play a game long like 3 hours, I don't know what would happen if it stays at such high temperature for 3 hours? Reboot?
