Back to the unanswered part of his original question - I think the cpu temp is allright.
Yeah its just alright thats the problem.....I never use a stock HSF.....You want cooling you buy an aftermarket HSF and Thermal Paste. I achieve just at 8 degrees celcius above ambient idle and 18 degrees celcius above ambient @ 100% thats with overvolting and overclocking C n Q disabled... BTW my system has never seen above 45 degrees celcius... My ambient temp are between 26 celcius and 29 celcius
That's certainly nice. I'm just saying I don't think he has to be worried.
No he doesn't, your right. I was just saying if he wants it chilly hes got to pay the piper
The stock Athlon II x3 fan is a delta 10,000 RPM fan so the speed you saw was probably rite.
I see. Thanks for the info people. I'm thinking of getting an Artic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro.
I actually have one intake and one exahust fan. Plus the PSU has a really big 120mm fan too.
Because it's cool!
Yeah man its so cool, you just got to get an aftermarket one.....no please chico stick with the stock one. 60 degrees is perfect in 30 degree ambient<sarcasm>. Go ahead and turn the clock up a bit too, it'll be fine. I am sure your CPU vendor will be happy to sell you another processor after this one goes into meltdown mode.
I'll maybe get one if I OC but for now I'll have to settle with the stock one. It idles at 31c now...
Plus budget was compromised with a new PSU, web cam, and a case fan.
