Recently upgraded my PC to an AMD phenom ii x4 955 @ 3.2ghz. I am currently using the Artic cooler pro 7 rev.2, and im getting temps of 36c at idle, and up to 59c on full load, should I be worried? Im using the Elite 330 case, with a artic tricool 120mm at the back pushing air, and another artic tricool at the front pulling air. These tests have been done with the case open anyway so I would hate to see the results with the case sealed. Anyone have any ideas?
Hi, i dont understand your question (Grammer error, im not being funny or anything like that). Im currently running Prime95 as we speak and have bee for 20 minutes. Voltage is at 1.216 and ive just overclocked it to 3.4ghz. Hitting 51c atm.
Ha ha! Yea, it got to the stage where things went a little dippy, so ive stopped it and gone for a 1h auto test instead. Finally seeing my temps at 50c load has made me so happy, its horrible spending £200+ on new parts and then it not going to plan, ughh!
I think ill stick to OCCT, i dont think i need to go any higher than OCCT, as i doubt games will. As long as the system is stable, im happy. Tommorrow ill be buying another artic tricool, lovely and silent fans
I would also consider a better CPU cooler, the Be Quiet Dark Rock PRO or Advanced works very well on AMD CPUs.
BeQuiet Dark Rock Advanced CPU Cooler (Socket LGA 775 / 1155 / 1156 / 1366, AM2 / AM2+ / AM3 / 754 / 939 / 940)
BeQuiet Dark Rock Pro CPU Cooler (Socket LGA 775 / 1155 / 1156 / 1366, AM2 / AM2+ / AM3 / 754 / 939 / 940)
And dont forget to set up those system fans in a proper push pull configuration, so pulling cool air in the front of the case, pushing hot air out of the rear and or top of the case. Also Dust filters use them always.
OK, keep adding things, sorry last post, of course all the above is dependant on a Good Case with Good Airflow, and mine is all built into an Antec1200 v3, so a better Airflow case might also be another good upgrade option for you.
Hey uther, thanks for the recomendations, ive just setup a antrec tricool 120mm in the front of my case pushing air, and there is another antec tricool at the rear pulling air. I also have another coolermaster fan on the side pulling air out. Im keeping my case, as i dont really want to spend any more money, but I will be looking at purchasing a new XFX 5750 graphics card in the next few weeks/months. Im thinking that im going to have to upgrade my PSU when I do that too, so ill most likely go for a corsair 500w (Non-modular), would this PSU power my setup if I did go for it? thanks
