heat pipes (how warm)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
how warm should the pipes be? if you put your finger on them while stressing with orthos, should you feel room temp warmth, slight warmth or would it be too hot touch?

i ask because i was stressing my cpu and TAT read 70C.. i know, thats like, super hot for my cpu, but when i felt the pipes, it was only slightly warm. there've been a bunch of posts regarding the legitimacy of TAT and really, i dont know what to believe anymore.

heres a picture of the heatpipes, just 'cus pictures make people happy

In my experience the pipes generally just get warm to the touch under loadtesting, this means there doing there job at transferring the heat to the fins and dissipitates it well.

If I remember correctly, you should take 15 degrees off your TAT temp for your actual temp on the L2 E6300s. It does not read correctly.

i read that too. the thing is, when it was stock (no overclocking whatsoever), TAT was reading 32-33 idle, which means i was near or below ambient temps. ive no a/c near my comp, just running a bunch of fans..

edit: i dont think having near or below temps idle is likely, is it?

Near is possible, but it's not possible to be below ambient temps on air cooling.

If your pipes are too hot to touch, then you should probably turn off your computer. Because by then the working fluid probably all evaporated already.
