Hello, maybe a stupid question but I just bought a TBird 1.2 and I find it a little hot (46 celsius at full load). Is that a normal temperature or is it too much ? Thanks a lot in advance for your answer J-L
Hello First of all, thanks a lot for the answer, I spared a lot to buy this baby and feared to see it turn to ashes
To your question : the HSF is an Alpha PAL6035, the reseller told me it was a good one, I hope so, it was quiet expensive J-L
What is the temp of your case? I ask because I just ordered that HS/Fan and am wondering if I will get my temp down to 46. I have a case temp of 38C and my system runs around 55-59 under load, so 46C would be a big improvment for me. So like I asked above what is your case temp? I also heard that if you have a good HS/Fan and thermal paste (AS2) that your CPU should never go more than 10C over your case, anyone know if this is true?
Most of the time, the case temp is around 28/30° I used termal paste too (furnished with the fan) just didn't know exactly what is the "right" thickness so I choosed to make a quiet thin layer and I don't know if it was the right choice. J-L
Well, here it's usually around 21/22°C. I've a middle sized box with a fan front/down bringing the air inside and one rear/up bringing it out. I also tried as much as possible to make the inside as clean as possible (hard with two hard disk, a dvd and a burner, each on one controller ). But here the weather is still cold, this summer... J-L
