Wasn't too sure where to post this but if a mod could move it if it's not suppose to be here please do.
So I have very similar readings from like 4 different temp reading programs
they're all giving me the same readings so I'm guessing that this is pretty accurate info
The CPU is a Phenom II x4 965
GPU is an XFX HD Radeon 6770
Under pressure gaming (The Witcher 2, Just Cause 2, Crysis all on high-max settings)
The stock case fan I have right now are very loud, I was wondering if those 2 components were hot ? The loud fans have me worried but I think it might just be because they're loud and not very good. I plan to get new ones soon but I'm just making sure my PC isn't overheating at all.
It's a Rosewill Blackbone Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
comes with two 120mm fans (one has a blue led that you can see from the front mesh paneling, it looks really cool)
the fans however are very loud and scream when I put my cpu and gpu under load. They are running normally but they just are very loud when they kick in so I plan on replacing both of them with 2 cooler master fans with LEDs.
are you saying that it's probably not my case fans making the noise ? What else would it be ? My PSU or heatsink ? I know it's not my GPU making that because I heard it separate when I was testing out some clock speeds.
Stock AMD HSF's (Heatsink/Fans) are NOTORIOUSLY loud. VERY loud.
mmm I see, any fix for it ? I'd hate to have to buy a new one because I'm scared of putting on the thermal paste..I fear I'll put on too much or use the wrong kind and ruin my CPU. I have a strong fear of reinstalling the heatsink ;x
check if the cooler is well fix to the board and that the fan in screw in place on the cooler that nothing is loose,using stock amd fan and did not ear it running case fan does more noise and yes DJDeCiBel suggest you a after market cooler that will help reduce the sound and cool the cpu also apply a good thermal paste,you could also add a fan below the graphic card on the side panel
