My quad core is 118f

Not overclocked at all just installed and checked the temp through the BIOS so I'm not even going to try to play any thing on it yet. It's an AMD Phenom 9650 64 quad, socket AM2+, 2.3ghz I really don't have the money to buy a water cooling system, is there anything else to do?

  1. 118F is around 48C, which is totally fine...
  2. Really? Wow that's weird because my computer shut down completely about an hour ago and when I turned it back on it said cpu reading too hot, running ubuntu btw
  3. 118F is very normal for a 1st gen Phenom they tend to run a little on the hot side. You will be fine as long as the temps stay below 70C (158F).

    In the bios under HW Monitior where it says your temps and fan speed is there a setting for auto shut down temps? The setting might be set to low which would cause it to shut down.
  5. Ok cool, I'll probably change my fans around a little and try to get air flow onto the mobo and off the cpu

    Hmm I'll try that ASAP as soon as I can.
