I have a problem with my system. I just purchased this system on eBay recently. Everything going smoothly regarding overall performance. But there's a problem. The idle and full load temps are really high! Idle's around 50's while Load's around 80's I've uploaded the pictures here for reference. The only setting that I changed in the bios is the CPU multiplier which is x29. I'm wondering if the CPU block is the problem or if I should put some new thermal paste. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
If your ambient temperature is 25c(77f.), it would be normal if your idle temp were 40-45c. or thereabouts.
Check the airflow direction of the radiator fan. Dangle some tissue in front of the fan and see if it is sucked in, or blown out.
You should be able to flip the fan over to reverse the direction. For best cpu cooling, it is best to give the radiator fresh outside air to work with.
But, this will be at the expense of heating up the interior of the case. That, in torn will give the graphics cards hotter air to work with.
Still, graphics cards are built to tolerate hot running.
