Which temps to use?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
To the point, CPU or "CPU Diode".

@stock, 1.35v 2.2ghz
CPU idle 26c, load 32c
CPU Diode idle 38c, load 42c

@2.75ghz 1.45v
CPU idle 28c, load 37c
CPU Diode idle 40c, load 46c

The temps are about 10c off from cpu to the diode, I know sensors can be up to 10c off or something.. I was wondering which one sounds more realistic, I recently went from stock cooling to this blue orb 2, 120mm fan 73cfm.

Stock cooler I was getting 32c idle and about 44c load on the "CPU" with 1.4v or 1.45v, didn't realize there was a CPU Diode reading until I recently downloaded everest ultimate.

CPU Diode always, those temps look reasonable, in fact I would push it a little harder but thats just me . You must of been cookin that Cpu on stock!!! Me<----aprox.50C Load

I supose I may remove the IHS or stick it out until I get an opty 165, then remove the IHS on it. I'll atleast reapply AS5 tonight or tomorrow, this heatsink is a B@$!% to get on. I may have smeared the AS5 to the one side when I was putting the heatsink on.

I'll update after I either take a razor blade to it or just reset AS5 on it.

Take the IHS off, It'll drop your temps 2C-5C..... 12 FANS?!?! HOW did you get all those in your case? I need some help deciding what way to face my fans could you help?

Well I have 7 80mm case fans, two 80mm fans in the PSU, fan on the heatsink, fan on the chipset and the fan on the video card makes 12.

I can suggest what would probably help, have your intake fans on the most bottom of your case, I have 4 80mm going in which are at the lowest position in my case. I have 3 case fans going out and the PSU fan going out, so thats 4 in 4 out (theres two in the PSU but one is blowing into the PSU and the other is blowing out the back of the PSU/Case).

Another thing I'd suggest to do is to have the same amount in as out, that way you don't get into any pressure issues. If the pressure inside the case is different than outside then some of your fans are going to be working harder than they should have to. That could lead to them dieing or start making noises etc.

Here's a diagram of what my case is set up like..

The CPU diode would be the best to trust IMO.
