  1. Hi :)

    What temps ?

    All the best Brett :)
  2. i dont know the cpu temp..but at idle,the gpu temp is around 38 degrees..the gpu's fan speed is 28%..
  3. Use Hwmonitor to monitor temps. Is the cooler installed correctly, as to answer your initial question: Heat rises, so putting a gpu that has heat rise, that heat will get into your cpu heatsink. Thus raising temperatures.
  4. which cooler?? then what can i do?
