I built a system with the following config. The case has 3 fans in it and I bought a CPU cooler that came highly recommended. My BIOS Hardware monitor shows my CPU at 97-99 F. Wondering if I can get input on what is a safe temperature.
- ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 MOBO
- i7 920 Proc
-Seagate Barracuda 1.5 TB drive
-NZXT Lexa S case
-ATI Radeon 5770 HD
-OCZ Gold 12 GB mem
-Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme-1366 RT Rev. C CPU Heatsink (Socket LGA 1366)
well the confusing part is he referenced farenheit temps not celsius...not sure if that is a mistake or not.
I should have provided the Celsius as I see that is the convention with CPU temps. So I am at about 37.5 C. From what I have read so far this quite safe. Also, I read an article that says that there is wide variation ~ 10C deoending on the binning.
99 F (37 C) is a reasonable temp on Core 1 .... 37, 34, 35, 34 would be a typical set of core temps at idle .... but CPU temp would be about 26C with those core readings so, make sure we talking same thing.
