My bad, I meant MCP. My mobo is usually 28C. I live in Melbourne, yer i took a 60mm fan from athlon pc i found in the garage and cable tied it on Northbridge. The attachment I'm giving you has the IDLE temperatures. The AUX fan speed is my CPU Fan Speed... the cpu fan has a 3pin thing. The one problem I get when my CPU is under load is that the Scythe Infinity gets hotter so the northbridge gets the hot air from it which it blows onto my GPU backplate... I would love some help or some ideas to why the CPU hits 80C.
Edit:- I have just clocked my Q6600 @ 3.2Ghz and under Prime95 Blend the temps are at the 65C mark.
This is directly quoted from another website:
"My suggestion would be ditch the cooler [FYI It was an Arctic freezer Pro 7] you have and get an Thermalright Ultimate 120 Extreme with two high CFM fans. In comparison I have a Q6600 at 3.6 and my temps under Prime 95 on each core never hit above 55c."
Is that likely to be true and if so, would i see similar temperatures if I mounted another fan onto my scythe infinity?
