Tags: Homebuilt Thermal Compound New Build Systems Last response: December 2, 2009 3:11 PM in Systems Share firewing December 2, 2009 1:08:43 PM ...and my x3 720 is idling between 42-44C. Is this normal? I'm using the stock HSF and no additional thermal paste or anything. Thanks for the help! More about : turned build Rustyy117 December 2, 2009 3:00:13 PM I take it the stock cooler had thermal paste pre-applied? would be useful to know your ambient temp, and also the case your using, also what other hardware your using. So pretty much more info please! Those temps don't seem too high for stock cooling, but its alittle hard to say without important infomation. powerfuel December 2, 2009 3:11:10 PM If you're not happy with the temps, get a new HSF or reinstal the thermal paste (use alcohol to remove the paste with Q-tips). These idle are high if you're running at stock speed. Check your load temps - easier to tell if your temps a abnormal. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
