Hi, I've just built my first computer, and I'm obsessing over the temperature readings according to speedfan. I've got a 7200 RPM hard drive, and its avg temperature so far is around 55-56 C. I've read that this is normal for a 7200 rpm drive, but do you think I should still get a fan for the drive?
Also, which reading is my CPU reading? The speedfan readings are like:
ok cool thanks. I've got two 120 mm case fans currently, one front, one back. Both are blowing outwards though, I guess the front one is supposed to be blowing inwards onto the hard drive? The drive is located in the front too.
I don't got much gear inside, only 1 HD, 1 7900 gt, and the aforementioned processor. No OCing going on, either.
Also, what does PWM stand for?
edit: ok, the HD temp is now down to 50C, hopefully that's good enuff.
