AMD 945 (95 Watt)

Right now my temps are reading 17C with stock cooler at idol. Room temp is 20C

Is this a good temp?

I'm using CoreTemp

Load temp was 27C, btw

    I think CoreTemp is wrong!
  3. Can someone explain how I can link screen shot?
  4. Download HWmonitor and use it to check. I guarantee you that CoreTemp is reading wrong because it is physically impossible for your heatsink to be cooler than ambient temperature so use another program to monitor your temps instead.
  5. Ok, HD monitor says the same temp as CoreTemp.

    But . . I was wrong with the room temp. The cpu is idoling at 17c and the room temp is 17c

    Possible?
  6. are you an eskimo? 17C is about 63F which is damn cold for room temp. Your temp sensors were likely not calibrated properly. Also the chances of your CPU idling with a 0C temp delta are slim without it being super energy efficient and probably a high end water cooling setup.
  7. Ha, no I'm in Chicago and the outside temp is 18 degrees Fahrenheit, and the wind chill is about -10F

    Personally I find 63F a comfortable room temp, it's what I spent the last few years living in when I was in the basement.
