I recently built a new system using a Socket 775 Pentium 520 2.8GHz CPU and an ECS 915P-A Socket 775 motherboard.
My question is what are normal temps for the Pentium 520 2.8GHz? I am currently seeing 44*C idle with the stock heatsink/thermal pad and a high speed(I think it's 4000 max RPM)Thermaltake rear 90mm fan. When running a game the temp goes up to around 51-52*C.
I am worried because it is fall here in NC, 55*F outside, and it's probably in the mid 60's inside. I hate to ask what it will be in the Summer time
Should I take the heatsink off, remove the thermal pad and apply some thermal grease instead?
Well dang....problem with the temps is that sometimes it gets pretty hot inside during the summer time. Half of the time my parents don't even run the A/C......but for now it's fall/winter and I can just open the window to control the room temp.
I need to go to a 4 year college so I can get out of here...=D
