I just recently installed a Corsair H50 CPU cooler, my CPU is running @ 18-20º Celsius with no load, just sitting on Desktop with maybe Google Chrome open. Is that a good temp for idling?
I have never used Hydro cooling like this, and am used to seeing temps a lot higher. I just want to confirm that everything is installed correctly, and the system is cooling to a good temp. I haven't figured out a way to display CPU temp in game such as WoW, Black Ops, or Crysis 2 - anyone know of a good program to use that will give an on screen display or something to view this while gaming?
Just built it this last week, I haven't decided on a GPU yet. I had my old HD4670 in it from my last system (hence the open PCIe port on the back), but I sold my last system Saturday so I put the 4670 back in it.
One question, does the asus sound card have actual treble and bass controls(like the old sound blasters) or just equalizers?
Omnisome, I built a system for my brother with an X6 and onboard video, since he does not game or use it for dvd's just needs raw power for the price.
Thanks for the info, the room is pretty gold, about 65-70 degrees. which is right about the 18-20c mark
Here is the headphone UI for settings in the Xonar Xense, and I must say, coming with the Sennheiser PC350 Headset, the sound is outstanding.. best I have ever heard. I haven't used the digital or optical output yet, so I don't know if the UI changes in that, but as far as you can see, its all EQ with the exception of Flex Bass control which will boost certain frequencies. You can customize your own EQ settings and save them as well.
