Hi guys. I recently bought a Qx9650 and had it installed via a Pc shop so I could keep the warranty on my other parts. However after using Core temp to get the temperatures I have found that I have reached 72 degrees on core 1 and about 69 on the others. Is this ok? I am using a Zalman CNPS7000C-Cu. All help appreciated thanks.
If you are just worried about a bit of temp variation per core on load temps, that's nothing to worry about. Presuming that those are your load temps of course. The 70s would be quite high for idle temps
I have bought 2 case fans. One at the front blowing cool air in and one at the back sucking hot air out. They arrive tommorow so I am going to run prime 95 for 4 hours and see how hot it gets. Is the max reccomended temp for the cpu 65 degrees or is that max core temp?
Anyway yeah.. looking forward to seeing the difference.
I noticed a drop of around 5C when installing window fans, and they were only really to cool the GPU. I realised that it's not pushing cold air from outside the case right to the bottom of my CPU cooler, instead of the CPU cooler sucking hot air from the top of my SLI setup.
Mounted a 3800 rpm fan pretty much on top of the cpu. temps down to 56- 58 degrees under 100% load. This has satisfied me. as "critical" temp is 65 so I'm under that. I'm going to call this solved. Was a cheap 26 dollar (Nz) fix.
I don't want to take the cpu off as I didn't install that myself. No my fan is a silverstone Fm82. It sounds like a jet engine at 40 decibels but it keeps my cpu from going over critical so I'm happy. What I meant by (NZ)Fix is that it only cost 26 New Zealand dollars to fix this problem So I was happy.
