Hi guys my pc is now al right I think I have some questions I hope you can answers them

1 What is reliable programme for cpu temp I have now Realtemp but I don't trust it because in Bios the idle temp are around 40/39

2 Is 40 idle not to high?


Its a core i7 860 with Scythe Mugen 2 Rev. B cooling

You can use Coretemp64 as well as HWmonitor
is your cpu overclocked?
i have a 860 baseclocked and it idles at low 30's
if you have overclocked a bit 40 is pretty good
you can always add another scythe fan for push/pull and possibly lower temps another 2-5 degrees

No not overclocked around 35/36 with HWmonitor i have a small cast.

The cables al already attached together

What kind of case is that?
looks cramped to me and no cable management.considering you have a nice psu.
i think if you changed your case temps would improve.
An Antec 300 of CM 690II Basic would work.
i also don't like the look of your processor power wattage
all my processor voltages and wattage are the same on all 3 columns
my vcore is 1.20v all three
processor power is 108.34 all three
kinda weird
you have a better cooler then i do but it can only do so much in that enviroment
i think the temps are good considering the situation
they would drop 5 degrees celcius in a new case
your intake and exhaust fans are underpowered 800cfm
1200cfm would be ideal
if you have a top fan placement for exhaust that would help alot
looks like a nice build component wise
i would give them a new home

Ok i post later new cable management with little improvement. I think the case is to small ?

Here is the new cable management

what are you getting for temps on full load? 40c is a safe temp anyway, if you're noticing that you're getting up to high 70s, 80s with your set up, i'd definitely be concerned; but if your system's fans kick in during full load and you're below 70, i'd say you're sittin' pretty

Well that is definitely a cable improvement.
You have such great components they really do deserve a better home.
Best remedy is to buy a CM690II Basic when it goes on sale with free shipping or locally.
The worst you could do is match another Scythe fan and push/pull if you can.
Can't tell from pic though that Mugen 2 is such a beast in that case lol!

Yes best thing i could is buy a another case like you said. So I make from the current case a media center with althon e series

Your case is small, but more importantly it looks to have minimal case fans. Even the exhaust fan appears to be a single 120mm?

Being that you're on air cooling, your case is acting as an oven and raising the ambient case temp that the CPU is being cooled by.

If I dont over clocking its possible with these case for normal temp?

What kind of fans are in the front of that case, are there any side fans?
