I am not sure if I am making any mistake any where or if my BIOS (already updated) sends high voltage to CPU automatically. I didn't do any OCing yet.

However, the idle temperature of my E6600 is 43-44C. I know the fact that I have P180B which is more concentrated on quietness than airflow. But...43C is not what I would like to have. I changed the orientation of 9500 from horizontal to vertical. Kept P180B on the desk than near my feet. Result is nada.

Now I whined enough

I have two choices infront of me, so far
Tuniq Tower
Noctua NH-U12

What you suggest?

My X1900XT is running at 47C on stock cooler. I will whine about it later

C2D runs hot and if you are using TAT or coretemp to measure temps then your are ok. But if you are not get CoreTemp and tell us your temp from there.

Download it here

Thanks for the reply
I am using ATI tray tools as well temperaturer from BIOS to get the temperature.


Edit:
from Core Temp Beta

Core #0: 35C
Core #1: 39C
Tjunction: 85C <- *** is this?

Yeah, those CPUs do run hot. Those idle temps are about right.

You might consider making a few changes in that case though...
I removed the upper chamber HDD bracket (including the sliders) and mounted the thick 120mm from the bottom chamber as my intake fan. The image below is a bit older, since I made some changes since (including that 9500 cooler). I have two exhaust fans (one back, one top). Later, I removed the fan in the bottom chamber for easier cable management, and zip-tied a 92mm fan to the front of the case (on the inside) for air flow over my quad pack of hard drives.

The improved airflow with the intake fan really helped, esp. for the motherboard temperatures, but also for the CPU temps (about 5C for mobo, 2C for CPU - that was with my previous CPU (Opteron 170) and the BT)

I might say that you want your CPU cooler to exhaust through the back fan, which means (for the CNPS9500 only) that the fan should point towards your CD drives.

That is correct. Good one GonX. The fan pushes air though the cooler.

Thought my cooler was on wrong. Was going to try to change it's direction today. Now your rep is going to have to get messed up so more. You should stop giving such good advice.



Edit: It's sad to think of how much money the Zalman has made just by adding an LED to their heatsink....
