Overheating when CPU is in use help! - Page 2

Even at it's age the UD5/920 is still a good system. Good luck!

Thanks mate. Cheers for your advice!

Wish I could afford £40-£70 on a good cooler! Moving house has been expensive. Will go with the £20 Arctic and maybe invest in the future. Let's hope this sorts the problem out for now!

Update: Okay I bought the Arctic 7 Pro today. The PC sits at 10-15 degrees cooler and under CPU running at 100% the temp sits at around 65-70!

This sound ok?

Yes, definitely. I'm surprised your chip wasn't 90C from day 1 ... it could very well be. Google for i7-920 HOT HOT HOT, lol that was what i did .. biggrin.gif

That's good! I always keep mine below 70c but some think it's safe hotter. Intel says Tcase is 67.9c

I'm wondering. I have never updated the bios on this board (5 years) can that make any difference at all in the way it handles fans etc?

It might. I use the CPU_fan socket to supply PWM to all my fans. The 4pin fan socket below PCI slot is not PWM.

What fans and how are they setup to cool your case? Might be able to lower our case temp and thereby lower your CPU temp.

Hi

Well I have the

standard fan on the arctic freezer pro 7
2x fans on PSU. One inside the case and one outside
Fan on graphics card.
Fan on the back of the case pulling air out (about 6cm)
Fan on side of the case I think pulling air out (about 8cm)
Have a 14cm fan at the front of the case pulling air in

Dont know exact sizes etc but that's what I have. The large fan at the front is a very powerful fan!

Is there anything else I should be doing to cool the case down?

Cheers
