(Near) Silent CPU Cooling for my AMD Phenom II X6 1075T? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
Installing, something just seems really off.
Having an idle temp of 23 / 35? No way.

This is after running Prime95 for about 5 minutes.


Where is it getting those temps from? The internal die? Does the fan controller that I'm using report temps?

I'm a little confused.

First, which is it, 23 or 35 for idle? And are you concerned that that is too low or high? Anywhere in that range seems about right. 45c after 5 minutes of Prime95 seems normal too, actually kindof on the low side. This processor has a max operating temp of about 60c so you are well within limits. Dont forget that Prime95 is going to stress your CPU way more than any real world situation so you are going to see much lower average temps with normal usage. I'm not sure exactly where the temperature readings are taken from but I do know that it's not your fan controller. Probably a sensor on the die or just below it on the mobo.

If you think the temps are too high, did you use the thermal paste that came with the cooler? The reason I dont like that paste is because there really isnt much thickness to it, so if you have a concave or convex IHS on your cpu, it doesnt fill that space well. It's why I suggested using Arctic Silver.

I was actually scared my temps were too low and it was misreporting them. smile.gif

Why is there a ten degree difference from CPU and Core? Should I offset the core temps by ten manually?

I would just follow the higher temp. Make sure that one stays below 60c. I have a 5 degree temp difference from core to chip on my 965 BE. To get a better idea of idle temps, look at the readout in BIOS.

What's the recommended maximum for my CPU model? And I'll look in the BIOS and compare it to the temps readout to get a better idea of what is more accurate. Thanks for your help!

You should consider the core temps, not the CPU Temp. Look this guide here.

The max core temp is 62C. Look this guide here.
