What is BIOS reporting? bf2player1978 December 18, 2011 12:05:16 AM hw monitor says 9c, mobo says 33c idle Related resources Heat and noise issue with my gaming PC - Forum Heat and noise issue . - Forum Heat /noise issue .

Get the answer rolli59 a c 789 à CPUs December 18, 2011 12:10:24 AM 33°C idle is a number I belief since most people keep their homes in the 20's C. Now the question is if your load temps were of as well! bf2player1978 December 18, 2011 12:12:45 AM both core temp and hw monitor say 52c under full load Best solution rolli59 a c 789 à CPUs December 18, 2011 12:16:58 AM Share That is a very believable temp! You should be able to OC that a bit but not much past 60°C under load. bf2player1978 December 18, 2011 12:20:33 AM Best answer selected by BF2PLAYER1978. bf2player1978 December 18, 2011 12:20:41 AM thanks man!
