Athlon 64 3400+ Venice temps

Hello, I have just built a rig using an Athlon 3400+ Venice and it appears to me the CPU is running very warm. This system is not overclocked in anyway.

The below are all idle temps using a COOLER MASTER DK8 hsf with Artic Silver 5 paste. The ambient temperature is around 23.5C.

Speedfan
System:37C
CPU:39C
AUX:45C
HD0:33C
Core:47C

Coretemp
Core #0 48C

Asus PC Probe II
CPU 38C

Are these temps high for this processor?

Thank you.

    u must test ur amd under load. 65c for ur model

    if it is 38 ur ok if it its 48c like CT says its high
  2. my A64 3000+ venice E6 (on stock AMD cooling) Oced to 2400Mhz @1.425vcore ran at 41c idle and 55c load on a room temp of 33c ..depending on your room temp, you can use this as a basis
  3. I guess that was another question I had. Which AMD temps should I be watching? I was concerned about the idle core temps reported by Speedfan and Coretemp.

    Speedfan
    Core:47C

    Coretemp
    Core #0 48C
  4. mpilchfamily, considering my idle temps are higher than your load temps then it appears this system is running warmer than it should. I will try and remount the hsf tonight.
