Are this good temperatures?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This is my first computer build so I don't know about computer temperatures
I have a Thermaltake V3 case, a XFX 9800GT NVIDIA GPU, and an AMD Athlon x3 435 (2.9GHz)

The case has an included 120mm exhaust fan at the back, and I'm running on an aftermarket cooler which looks exactly the same as the stock AMD cooler.

I noticed that the GPU had the worst temperature out of all the parts of my computer, with 40-47c(113f) on idle on a low ambient temperature and going to like 50c(122f)-57c(134.6) on high ambient temperature.

So I added a 120mm fan I had on an old computer, it's a Scythe Slipstream 120mm fan, and I added it on the side panel as an intake fan, which blows air directly to the video card.

Doing that, temperatures didn't change much, with this temperatures right now at idle on low ambient temperature

Here's a screenshot of the temperatures

I tested FurMark to see what would happen, and temperatures immediatly went to 65c (149 f), and kept on rising until it went to 71c (160f) just after 30 seconds of it running and I closed it.

I don't know why the 120mm isn't doing anything, it's blowing the air directly to the GPU, and I think the fan is at 100% load (I can't seem to change the speed anywhere, speedfan doesn't change any fan speed, and it makes a REALLY loud noise)

Also, are the other temperatures ok?, and is the gpu really running hot or I'm just exaggerating? Any opinion? Build is on my sig for any other part information

For more accurate temperatures I would check out coretemp. People have had false readings with speedfan for the most part. Report back and see if the temps are the same.

Umm but that's for the CPU and I'm talking about the GPU, well I asked for general temperatures but specially the GPU because that's the highest one

If those temps are correct, yes, your fine.... at least for idle temps. You should use a program such as OpenHardwareMonitor and run a game you like to play for a while, leave OHM open in the back ground with it set to record highest temps. After a good gaming session post a screen of the open hardware monitor window and be sure to tell us what the ambiant/room temp is(as best you can) and we can help you to see if your temps are good or bad.

Idle temps mean nothing at all. Its all about the load temps.
