CPU idling (Not in game) 40-50-60 degrees celsius. Is this normal? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
My only experience is from a Phenom, and it idles at around 40 all the time. It's crammed in a small case in a hot room (85-90f) with a H60 cooling it but once it hits that 40 mark it never drops. That chip has always run warm though. I just figured it was normal for that series and, what is it, TDP? Wattage? Whatever, a 95w processor. My 65w intel runs much cooler but I figured the lower wattage is why.

Guys I reset my cpu settings through the bios and everything is good now smile.gif
It turned turbo off which I think was the problem but from what I hear my temps werent to bad for a six core with turbo. Maybe wrong?

Um, when you took the CPU and cooler out of that HP, did you clean off and replace the thermal grease? Re-using the grease is a huge no-no, it will leave large voids in the paste, gaps, bubbles, etc., and generally result in a poor thermal interface.

I'm surprised the BIOS defaults to Turbo mode being disabled.
