Im running an A64 3500 winnie with an XP120 and an Akasa Ultra Quiet 120mm Fan.
these are the temps:
idle cpu 37
load cpu 51
Do these temps sound a bit hot? I thought I would be getting lower temps with this hsf. Could it be due to the quiet fan? oh and cool n quiet is turned off.
Sounds like that fan is a bit feeble, but that's what you get with 'ultra-quiet' I guess.
For comparison, my rig (see below) has an XP-120, and my usual temps are 43C load (sys ~25C), but if I switch the fan down to 5V (I have switches for this) then my load temp goes up to around 55C.
I can't remember the make of the fan, but it's a 'normal' 120mm (not especially quiet or especially loud/high performing) with some UV LEDS (it was the only 120mm fan available from the same site when I got the XP-120 and I was in a hurry :smile: ). I <i>think</i> it's either ~80CFM or ~60CFM.
Do you know the CFM rating of that fan?
Mind you, these are temps with a 25% OC of course
Might be worth removing the HS, cleaning the CPU & HS base properly and re-seating with some AS5 or something.
Well...with my xp90 and my 3000+ @ 2.4ghz, i get 37c idle, 44c load...My 3500+ 130nm, was running load 52c @ 2.4ghz stock hs. Chipset runs 40-44c. My room temp runs about 80f...i have 5 80mm fans in the case tho too, not mentioning the 2 in the psu.
So yea, it's probably Reading high. Whether its actually running hot or not...i'd definately reseat it, and chk temps again.
