Frontech 400W PSU
Intel 946GZIS mobo
Intel C2D E4300 @ 1.8Ghz
1GB DDR2 RAM
iBall i612 Cabinet No 120/90/80 mm fan. (Guess my assembler made off with the 80mm fan, when I got the PC 2 years ago) No GPU. No PCI card.
My Core temperatures on full load, as tested using Prime95 & 3 utilities are:
My CPU is placed slightly above ground in a compartment, below the desk, in front of wall. PSU is at top. If I pull out the CPU from it's space the temperatures lower by about 3C. I have even removed my left cover of the cabinet & cleaned the PSU fan & CPU fan of the dust.
My CPU placement:
(L) Left-Side view (R) Front view
Any ideas why this is happening. Room temp can be 27-30C.
Well, they were the core temperatures, SpeedFan showed them to be higher than CPU temp. I only wonder what if I had installed a 5700 series GPU! My CPU would be fried before you could say "toaster".
Thanks btw, I do photoshop; paint was fun. Plus I had nothing better to do.
Coz I'm changing the rig. If it weren't for the Commonwealth Games here in Delhi, my motherboard's shipment wouldn't have been restricted & I'd be typing this from a Phenom II - X6 in a CM Chassis with 2x 120mm fans. ~Sigh~ Life is mean.
