I'm seriously looking at a quality cooler. is there anything to look for?
any good models?
Chrisme52, the large range of temperatures is probably due to poor cooling (lower quality cpu cooler). What kind of cooler do you have now? Sometimes lapping both surfaces (HSF and IHS) can help out a lot. The biggest change would be in your full load temperatures. If the airflow in your case is poor then that can also effect your load temperatures.

Here's a cooler that I've been hearing good things about: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233003. I currently have a Thermalright SI-128 (lapped). It's a great cooler. It kept my Opteron 170 under 55C with a 26C room ambient.

Have a look at Everest. This is the one I use for everything.

Hope that helps

Ive just got a deepcool cheap one. It says on box that it will do an amd 5400.

Whats this lapping stuff?

I don't buy software unless i really have to (hence why i use linux), so do have an alternative to everest?

Chrisme52, here is the guide that I followed when I started lapping: http://www.overclock.net/air-cooling...ltake-big.html. If your current cooler has a poor surface (ie. if it's concave/convex or if the surface has scratches and dings) then lapping will get rid of those imperfections. This process is suppose to make the surface of your cooler flatter. Flatness means better contact with your processor which usually results in better temperatures. It's also recommended that you lap the IHS (integrated heatspreader). Lapping the IHS however will void your warranty.

Everest can be downloaded via Free trial for 30 days I believe. If you prefer free versions then have a look at Coretemp, Speedfan and HWMonitor.

How about your cable management? Poor cable management can weaken the flow of air inside your case. This can also result in "dead spots" as well.

Good luck

Chris, what are you ambient temps?

In regards to coolers, the one that thlnk3r posted up is a very good cooler. However, for the same price you could get a Scythe Mugen 2. It outperforms that other cooler.

In regards to temperature monitoring, use coretemp.

Also, lapping your CPU is the best way (IMO) to improve temps. Lapping is sanding your CPUs integrated heat sink (IHS) perfectly flat and very smooth to create better contact between the CPU and the heat sink (cooler). It'll go from looking like this to this.



Watch this guide.

chrisme52: Having owned one, I can tell you that an Athlon64 X2 5400+ is a much cooler-running processor than anything in the 939 flavor. To buttress Thlnk3r, the Thermalright SI-128 is a pretty decent cooler (the SI-128se is better though), if not a little pricy. On sale, I got mine for $45 without a fan, and then paid another $10 to get a bolt-down bracket rather than the stock clip.

CoreTemp might work in wine, I am not sure. Also, look into lm_sensors with gnome-applet-sensors. I have heard some good things about it, but I have not tried it myself. Furthermore, HWMon is similar*, and I believe HWMon is freeware. (It is also the program of choice for member "pez.")

Thlnk3r: Yep, Everest Ultimate is 30-day trialware. After 30 days, you either uninstall, or pay $20 to keep it. That $20 gets you all updates in the family. (You can update Everest 5.0 to 5.1 or 5.4 for free; but when they come out with 6.x, it is time for a new license.)
