e6600 temp?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ok this is an updated post. My cpu idles at 53-56 c this is maybe when I am running firefox only or just have nothing on my computer. At load it goes to 60-63. I did not overclock my cpu I have a cooler master cpu fan (heres the link http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103031) and I have an asus mobo (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813131142). My case is an apevia (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16811144058), but it doesnt have the window on the side. I have a total of 4 fans. My room gets pretty hot in the summer because I have little to no air conditioning. I have my computer under my desk and I believe that summons it up... Please give me some info!

I forgot I am using speedfan to determine the temperature and I just checked my temperature when I alt tabbed from Counter Strike: Source and it said it was 70-74 in both cores, but it dropped immediately back down to 59-64 area when I was on my desktop.

Seems like the coolermaster is not doing a great job.

I have a Tuniq Tower and sometimes the room I have the PC in, gets up to 77f and the CPU idles at 34c whereas in winter it idles at around 30-31c. But full loads are never above 43-44c.

If you have a Mid-Tower? They're not "that" good IMO. I used to have a CoolerMaster Mid-Tower and the Tuniq Tower 120 did a little bit of a good job in keeping the temps down in my 2nd rig but....

Once I switched from Mid to Full-Tower, temps went down considerably. It's the way the air flows inside your case that makes the difference.

Anyhow, I'm going to guess it's some bad air-flow in your case or the HSF hasn't been set properly.
