Hello i just recently bought a rig from cyberpower pc
AMD Phenom II x4 BE 955
MSI 770 G45 mobo
MSI Geforce 250 GTS twin frozer OC (Coming in the mail today or tomorrow)
I also received a Asetec 510LC liquid cooling system
my case is a Xion AXP 600 Mid-Tower Gaming Case with 4 Fans AND a PCI card slot fan
not to mention a PSU and Video card fan from my 9600GT that is in it temporaily.
As i am typing now AMD overdrive and core temp reads my temp at 45 degrees celsius.
When i load my cpu with a game or a stress test it stays in the range of 50 to even 67 degrees celsius, Im not a professional or anything but that isn't normal is it. My old dual core could play L4D 2 with no overheating but this can't even play it for more than a hour or so before it hits the 60's??
I'm gaming from 1280x1024 to 1600x900 I've also noticed GTAIV runs very smooth up until i hit 62 degrees celsius then i get severe in game lag everytime so im convinced its the cpu temps and nothing else.
It basically steadily increases when i do much of any gaming. i even set L4D 2 to use 2 cores but the temp didnt go down.
my voltage is 1.325 my cpu which is slightly lower than stock isnt it?
its setting at 45 now.
btw i didnt install the liquid cooling myself it came installed by cyberpower pc im sure the paste is correctly applied assuming that cyberpowers staff are professionals.
personally i wonder if anyone else has this same cooling system with a quad core? If so maybe the 510LC simply isnt up to the task of cooling a quad core?
Should i get a new heat sink and ditch the 510LC if so what one can i get for under $40???
Cyberpower should inform you if the cooling system they offer isn't compatible with your cpu
