Here are my numbers, is it worth changing anything?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 


So there are my numbers, I'm cooling on air. HWMonitor is mis-representing the CPU, it's an i3-3220. These are my early-summer temps after about an hour of typical gaming load. GPU rarely, if ever, goes above 60 Celsius. Should I bother bumping up to an AIO like the H60/Seidon120V/LQ310/H80i (best options in my area) or should I just not bother? I'm using an Accelaro cooler on the GTX 570, so noise is at an absolute minimum. I'm itching to go custom WC, but the cost just to get the rig *cough* pump noise *cough* to the same level as it currently is, well, it's going to cost A LOT (everything is basically going to be imported).

Inb4 "HDD's too hot", they aren't.


Thoughts?

I've changed back to the intel stock for ease of travelling to LAN's. Originally was under a Thermalright Macho-H02, but since I can't OC, don't go above 65C and it's a massive cooler, I switched back.
Just wondering in general if any of the numbers are off or if I should change/improve something. If I cannot get better noise/temps than the above with custom WC, should I even bother? This is just a by-the-numbers inquiry.

sigh.... just run the macho fanless if you aren't OCing... going back to stock cooler = dumb move

What psyclum said above. Mabye use the Macho fan and set the speed curve very slow..
