well i don't know about being a helpful thread but i was just wondering wich temps you guys have...

my scores

p4 prescott 3.0 using zalman 7000cu led
cpu temp idle 42
motherboard 35
gpu 60
processor fan 2250 rpm

More about : show temps

May 3, 2006 10:37:01 AM

Presscot P4 478PGA 3.2GHz standard heatsink with AS5 - 33'c idle, 50'c full load, fan speed 2450rpm

X800Pro - 45'c idle, 55-75'c high to full load, 70% fan speed.

Why? looking to compare.
What graphics card do you have?

Edit - room temp 25'c air con. year round. :D

this thread SUCKS BALLS!!!!




why?



because if you (threadstarter) were to come to my place you would have to put on an extra 10 degrees on your temps.

basically, none of youstated your location and ambient/room temperatures.

so if you're only pushing 40C load but you have ur pc in 15C room temps this thread won't show ur running worse then the guy living in the caribbean having 50C load at 30C room temp.

so basically state ur location on these type of threads for them to have any real guidance to the common folk.

mine:

Barton non mobile AthlonXP 2600+ @ 3200+ since march 2003
~35C idle. - 45C load - room temp: 31C
Coolermaster Jet7 lapped.

6600GT @ 575/1125 w modded Prescott coppercore HSF
idle 51C - 68C load

no arctic silver... just standad compound... :-/


anyway, if u compare temps on the internet, and not your neighbour, keep in mind that they may live in warmer/colder regions, doh. :lol: 
May 3, 2006 3:36:33 PM

P4 630 3GHz
32C idle, up to 45C on load - room temp: 20-22C
Stock fan, stock thermal paste.

(I saw some very different temps /higher but not OCed/ on other rigs - same cpu)... Why? Could it be that my Gigabyte temp monitoring is reporting lower temps? I'm suspicius because in bios cpu temp is around 42 Celsius!? Any ideas?

Also, in the same temp monitoring software (Gigabyte Easy Tune) I can't see any mobo temp? Mobo's chipset is 945p-g. Again, any ideas?

Gigabyte 6600GT @ 500/1000 on stock HSF
idle 43C, load - haven't checked yet :) 
May 3, 2006 6:18:03 PM

gigabyte has done temp increases and such on the past.

a certain bios flash since 2002 began showing a 10 degree increase in celsius for cpu temps for my motherboard (gigabyte's nf2 ultra400).

this was to safeguard overclockers.

google for your motherboard to see if a similar thing was done by gigabyte.
May 4, 2006 1:02:43 AM

P4 630 3Ghz with Artic Cooler Freezer Pro 7 and AS5 - 34C idle 48C load
Asus P5GDC Deluxe - 33C
Leadtek 6800GS OC 485/1100 47C idle 64C load
Room temp - 23C

Hey Markoni, I don't know about Gigbyte, but on the Asus FAQ it explains that it is normal for temps to be several degrees higher in the bios than idle in Windows:

Why the CPU temerature detected in BIOS H/W Monitor is a little higher than in Windows?

It is normal. When WIndows is idle, OS will put the CPU into the low-power states(C1,C2 or C3 state) .But in BIOS setup , the CPU cannot support these states. So the CPU temerature detected in BIOS H/W Monitor will be several Celsius Degrees higher than in Windows.

Edit: HS fan speed - 1997

Yes pplz should write down the room temp as well as CPU, NB Case temps etc.

BUT....... who has a thermometer in their room just to measure room temp? ok maybe some of you.....

NEXT.... who has calibrated any of the thermometers they have used? Are you sure its accurate does it read exactly 100 in boiling water (pure water)?

How accurate do you think those Temp readings are in BIOS? give or take a couple of degrees?

ANNYWAY!

P4 3.4 Prescot = 45 and under load is 67

He is using MBM. see here
Its kinda out of date since its no longer being developed.

I switched over to SpeedFan (here). It doesnt have a nice little display thing like that, but its still really good.

These idle temps are after 72 hours. I left them on since like Sunday night.

Use Arctic Silver, it seriously helps!

Im not using A/C right now here Chicago. Save some bills. But eventually this summer when it hits really hot then I'm gonna have to flip on the switch. I got me a lot of electronic stuff in my 10'x14' room that is why it's warm, it's not that hot really I'm kind of use to it. :D 

Phreejack:

Nice system cooling by the way. Way off my budget. :) 
May 11, 2006 5:55:03 AM

Thanks Chuck.

It's not something I built all at once but over the course of the last year piece by piece. It is rather expensive if you consider the total investment but it does it's job well. I am especially pleased with the ViperVenom III GPU peltier. It was custom designed and built by ViperJohn, a well known and well respected authority on Peltier cooling

Wow I got the same room temp but Pentium D 805 51C idle / reach 70C full load.
May 11, 2006 6:19:22 AM

I am still very new to the whole overclocking scene and have way much to learn so I don't really overclock much right now (at least not my CPU) as I don't know (or understand) all the parameters involved in OCing (voltages and such). My 7900GTX I have set at 800mhz core clock frequency and 900mhz memory clock frequency at the temps I displayed earlier in my reply.
May 11, 2006 6:44:06 AM

Wow, you're hitting 70c at full load, that doesn't sound good. Pentium 805 can run hot but it is better to get that temps around 60c full load. What kind of cooling do you have on the cpu?

Before my water cooling I have the Thermaltake Big Typhoon on my 840 and at 32c room temp with the help of Artic Silver 5 thermal paste, it gives me 45c idle and 56c full load. Although it's an alright operating temps for the cpu still I want it to be cooler, so I got the water cooling.

Since you're experience with Peltiers do you think I could install one for my cpu. I already got the water cooling all I need is the peltier pad itself like the ones sold at FrozenCpu.com. Do you think it would be a good set up? And what can of advice you can give looking at peltier cooling? I'm not familiar with it, and I have hear that a good one can under freezing point like of yours, which makes me worry about condensation and water along my system.
May 11, 2006 7:26:07 AM

My experience over the last year with Peltier coolers has shown me that if you have an effective watercooling system set up (with cooling off the peltier in mind) that really nice temps can be involved here. It takes more than just a thermoelectric module though as you must have a waterblock configured for its use (i.e waterblock, cold plate, etc.). Of course there are other considerations such as the extra powersource needed for the system. This is needed because, while there are some low pwered modules that many etail sites sell, they are woefully incapable of handling the heat loads of the newer CPUs and GPUs (especially the newest ATI cards which are considered solar furnaces compared to the heat an Invidia card generates).

I can tell you what I have in my system and how I have it set up so that you can get an idea what I am dealing with - although please don't ask me about the physics involved (dmax, qmax and such because I am still learning that part myself).

I am using a Meanwell SE 600-12 600 watt powersource to pwer 2 thermoelectric modlues in 2 different waterblocks. The CPU waterblock is a 226watt Swiftech unit (those guys over at swiftech are awesome btw). My GPU waterblock, a ViperVenom III, uses a 226watt (maybe slightly higher as it was a custom job done by ViperJohn). Together, both thermoelectric units generate a TREMENDOUS amount of heat on the hotside of the modules and I needed a sufficient watercooling system to help aleviate that. To that end I set up (as per advice from ViperJohn - who is the God of peltier cooling).

The case I use is a Coolermaster Stacker 810 RC-810-SSN1 Silver. I use 2 Swiftech MCP655 pumps, 2 Danger Den Black Ice Xtreme II Dual 120mm Radiators each mounted externally with 4 120mm fans on each in a "push-pull" configuration and a Typhoon Dual 5.25" Bay Reservoir.

The setup goes as follows:

Typhoon Reservoir -

Pump 1 - Swiftech waterblock (peltier) - radiator (mounted externally in the rear of the case) - back to the reservoir

Pump 2 - ViperVenom III waterblock (peltier) - radiator (mounted externally on top and backwards of the case) - back to the reservoir

I mounted the radiators externally because I wanted to maximize the radiators cooling ability. I did alot of custom work modding the case to achieve this setup.

I use an XG duro 900 powersource in the case for all my lights, the 2 pumps and equiptment.

I hope this gives you some idea as to what is involved.
May 11, 2006 7:45:02 AM

I see there's an somewhat inexpensive version of it. I only want something that could cool down the cpu to -20 idle. Im not gonna go extreme right away and go below zero, what I want is an entry level peltier cooling.

I saw a website that sell power supply and peltier pad with low wattage and can be installed with my current set up. My question is how much heat can this thing generates? Is there a way I could control the temps so that I don't go overboard with the temps?
May 11, 2006 7:57:24 AM

The problem with the newer CPUs (from, generally Prescott - like the 3.73EE single core - and up to current) is that they generate a tremendous amount of heat and anything less than a 226watt module just can't handle the heat generated by the CPU itself. Oddly enough, as much a reputation for heat generation as the 3.73 EE single core has, my newer 3.46 Presler seems to generate even more heat than it. To go to -20 idle you'd pretty much have to go the phase change route (or, perhaps, a much stronger thermoelectric module but, then again there is the heat and power requirements involved) and as expensive as thermoelectric cooling is, phase change is much more expensive. With the various thermoelectric kits offerred (especially those that are premade like the Freezone product, my advice is to scan the web and check out the various reviews of that (and any) item that you may potentially invest in.
May 11, 2006 8:15:47 AM

Phreejack, Im very sorry for I have made a mistake. What I mean is 20c at idle not -20c below zero. :oops:  Sorry.

Right now my idle is 35c but I want to experience peltier cooling for a start and it seems that I could purchase a low end kit for less than $200. So is there any good website I could see some affordable version of this thermoelectric cooling kits.

Anyways I saw this web.

Also what do I need to make a peltier cooling kit?

I am not sure where you can get an entire peltier cooling kit (that is effective) for $200. For as much business as I do online, I have found that FrozenCPU.com has the biggest collection of cooling parts. If you look under "watercooling kits" there you will find various thermoelectric kits. They also sell the Freezone there.

Sidewinder computers is also an excellent site and I was able to purchase the Swiftech Kit (for LGA775) for about $150 less than what FrozenCPU sells it for (I did have to phone in to place the order and the guy there worked with me.

20c is certainly manageable but I am just not aware of where you can get the necessary components (i.e rads, tubing, powersource, waterblock/peltier, powersource relay kit, etc.) for $200. The Freezone product is about as cheap as I can see everything put together for an entire kit but I am unaware as to its effectiveness.

Off the top of my head, if you were using a 226watt waterblock, you would need:

radiator - either 2 single 120 rads or 1 double 120 rad. If you intend on adding other waterblocks into the loop (like northbridge chipset, GPU or harddrive) then I recommend (at the minimum) 1 double 120 rad and 1 single 120 rad.

SE 320-12 Meanwell powercource

Radbox mounting kits for both rads (assuming you are mounting the rads externally)

1/2 tubing (I have foun that the Tygon 1/2in. ID 11/16in. OD Laboratory Tubing #R3603 over at Sidewinder Computers is best for my use)

Reservoir

226 watt waterblock (Swiftech thermoelectric waterblocks have never let me down)

powersource relay switch kit (also at Sidewinder Computers)

Conformal Coating spray (for condensation prevention)

Dielectric Grease (for condensation prevention around the CPU)

Standard nick-nacks for any watercooling setup

It is a bit tedious intalling the kit because there are always some unforseen issues involved (like having to mod your case for something) but it is nice when it all comes together. Now, as I have my kit running in my case, it is easy to switch out parts and change various components because of the experience I've garnered (and, the knowledgte imparted to me by the gurus of peltier cooling like ViperJohn)

jesterx, I live by the beach and during the summer here on Long Island it does get quite hot. Since I like to leave the windows open and enjoy the "beach air" I thought it prudent to somehow keep the important components of my computer cooler. While researching this over the past 2 years I got intrigued by the whole peltier cooling idea and it just stuck with me. I am not interested in phase change cooling - it's just a personal interest that I have stuck with thermoelectric cooling and it has served me well. I don't usually overclock my CPU but I do overclock my GPU most times (as of now I am running my XFX GeForce 7900GTX from it's stock 690mhz clock and 1.75 ghz memory clock to 800mhz clock and 1.8 ghz memory clock).

I just enjoy tinkering with the whole peltier cooling concept...
