I'm new to the forum so please forgive my newbness.
I wanted to get some insight on my current temps. On stock CPU and RAM settings I'm getting 30C idle and 70C load temps about about a minute using prime95. My ambient temp is 20C. I have tried to resit my heatsink fan many times and this is the lowest temps I can get.
I overclocked my RAM using the XMP setting in my Bios which increased my idle to about 45C and my load to 70C +, I havent pushed it further as I just turn off prime95. I then overclocked my CPU to 3.6ghz using Turbo Evo (I know its not recommended but I tried it as I have tried to read and research how to manually overclock the CPU in bios but it is very confusing to me). Since these temps are way too hot from what I read online I have appropriately set everything back to default settings in my bios.
Does anyone know what can be the problem with my current temps and how I can fix them so I can overclock my rig?
Also, I have the fans running at 100% through all the tests as I don't mind the noise levels in order to get lower temps. My case currently has 3 Fans (2 on top, 1 on the back)
Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated! :cool:
