Concerned about temps

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Last night I was tinkering around inside my case, moving wires around and adjusting fans when I got the idea to see if I could modify my AC Silencer64 to see if I could get it to clamp on tighter so I could take off my IHS(it's "off" but still on). Well I found out I can't because of the clamping system, so I decided to just take off the 87mm fan and zip-tie an extra 120mm fan I had lying around onto it.

Long story short, it started acting up to where I would load Windows, start loading MBM5 and it would just freeze. I reset my CMOS because when I tried to restart it wouldn't even post. I eventually concluded it was because of ClockGen. When I had it, it would cause my computer to lock up, and now that it's gone I get no problems.

Now the thing I'm worrying about is after I put on the bigger fan, reapplied AS5(yes I used the recommended amount) and had everything stock, it idles a little hotter(the AS5 has to cure, of course) but my load temps are unbelievable at stock settings. 46°C at CPU, 55°C at the CPU diode(used Everest to check). I've been running F@H since last night and during school, and when I got home the computer was fine, but I'm extremely worried about my load temps.

I've been waiting for my waterblock to come back from RMA from Thermaltake, which cracked after a WEEK of use(I caught before it did any damage though, thank god), and now that my radiator is screwed up. Which, by the way, why can't they just use the regular screw in barbs instead of this cheap crappy metal extender that broke off when I was trying to take off my tubing?

So again, sorry for the story, just venting right now(), but why would these temps be so crazy. My old settings(245x11 @ 1.55) never got this hot with the stock AC 87mm fan.

EDIT: Or, am I just paranoid?

Are your previous temps the one in your main rig's profile page ?
If they are, they're amazing, load temps lower than idle temps FTW ??
Well, maybe its the extra 120mm fan that creates turbulence in you case (it may disturb the general airflow in your case), but then again, it is quite weird...

Well the heatsink has the fins parallel to the ground so the escaping air goes straight to the back of the case and out through my Q-OTES fins. You could be right. I'm going to see what happens over the next couple of days seeing as I leave it on and see how the AS5 curing does.

And yeah about that.. Lol I wasn't paying attention.
