  1. There is a fan filter on the front of the case? Remove it.

    After reading what you found I think your GPU temps are right where they should be. You can adjust the idle fan speeds in ilde and load using Rivatuner. I think at idle it's set at 40% speed, bump it to 60%.

    Honestly, try and run it under load. Use OCCT for the CPU and Furmark for the GPU. Let us know what you get.

    Maybe you need better case fans. Cutting the fan hole metal parts out of the front and back of the case would help as well as better fans.

    Load er'up and see what your temps are.
  2. I don't see anything particularly out of the ordinary here.

    Did stumble across this thread that you might be interested in for lowering your 4870 temps.

    +1 load er'up. Loads matter.

    can i just do this by using Rivatuner ??
    the idea is to adjust the idle fan speeds in all this steps .. i'm i right ?
  4. who cares what your idle temps are.

    what are you temps under load.

    Under load .. only 5min playing

  6. Playing. Nono. Use a load program. OCCT for the CPU, Furmark for the GPU.

    You have a stock CPU cooler to start with. You need to adjust your GPU fanspeeds with Rivatuner to higher settings. You also might look into updating your GPU bios, that might help.

    i updated my gpu bios

  8. 60 degree cpus and 85 degree gpus are fine.

    10 more degrees on your cpu, worry.

    10 more degrees on your gpu, worry.

    *edit* actually, now that i look at it, that cpu temp is high considering you arent overclocking, those are overclocking temps. they are within acceptable range... but dont leave you room to overclock.
  9. Get a better CPU cooler, temps aren't bad but not great. It's just about where it should be with the stock cooler now we saw load temps. Your GPU fan is only at 29% at idle, bump it up to 40% or so in idle.

    Replace your case fans, cut the back fan thing off with all the tiny holes, remove front filter, cut the tiny holes like the back.

    Not much else you can do beside a new CPU and GPU aftermarket cooler, and open up the case air flow.
  10. when i bump the fan speed control from 29% to 38% temp down from 70 to 53
    the problem is i want it to be Automatic start 38% (not working)

    and the topic spinny put is very old talk about the same idea becouse in that date there was no fan control in the ccc

    is their any solution to make the start fan level 38% !!

    if Rivatuner do this .. a little help in using because it's hard to manage
  11. i really dont understand why ati put such low idle fanspeeds on their 4800 series.

    everyone complains about it.
  12. ^ I dont see a problem with it, just adjust it manually. (=

    IF I DO that .. it will not rise up the speed limite i put
    or make 3 profiles with different speeds .. this is not Practical way :pfff:
  14. There may be a driver mod to do that.
  15. Rivatuner is complicated but it can do it, many have. I'm no versed much in that. I suggest you try the GPU forum and other forums scattered around the world.

    http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/index.php? Not a noob site, but great stickies
    http://www.over-clock.com/ivb/inde [...] opic=20277 A GREAT Europe site
    http://www.overclock.net/water-cooling/ Decent site

    Google is your friend. try typing rivatuner fan control. I have seen detailed guides on how to do it. Go find it.
  16. ill be honest. i glanced at rivatuner, blinked a couple times and closed it.

    im stupid and lazy. *sigh*

    18c ? Thats like somewhere around 64F ? Wow!, I'd hate to have to pay your electric bill. LOL

    Well errorloading, Time I saw the picture of your case I knew what I'd do to it.

    Remove the lower HDD carriage blocking your front intake fan, move your HDDs up into the 5 1/2" drive bay, you really don't need but one DVDRW anyway, get some 70+ CFM 120mm Cooling fans and get some serious airflow through that bad boy
    and you'll see an immediate difference.

    Your graphics card will have fresh ambient airflow directly to it and it will run cooler, you said (no fan in the cover), assuming you mean the 250mm fan, didn't it come with the case or was it extra?

    Edit; You were already advised to remove the front filter and I second that suggestion.

    Most of us are in and out of our cases so much dust removal is a way of life, you do not really need a intake filter anyway it just additionally restricts airflow.
