Can you post a pic of the inside of your case? Might be case airflow.

I have an AC 7 Pro on my 2160 @ 2.9ghz and I idle around 24C.

The 7 series chipset runs processors very hot. Don't expect temps to be as miraculous as those with an intel chipset. With side panel off, I get 56C load on my 3.4 GHz e8400, and with it on, 60C.

Deal with it.

Whoa

I agree it might be your case airflow.

I have the same mobo, case, vid card and cpu. I was getting pretty hot temps to so i checked out the case.

I noticed that the top and rear fans were both exhaust.

The the way the AC7 faces the 2 fans were fighting each other. Try turning the rear fan around so it acts as an intake and it will assist the ac7 fan and blow twice the air over the cpu.

or eve try adding an intake fan in the fron of the case to add more airflow. those stay pretty quite with the door closed.

hopefully that helps because it dropped a few degrees c. just when i flipped that rear fan around.

I'm about 41c 41c now with an ambient of about 80f.

How did you have your fan facing? The fan on my AC7 is facing the front of the case. That means it is exhausting toward the back of the case. Do you have the fan on your NorthBridge?

Here is the pic of my case. You should see everything.

I have the AC7 fan towards the back of the case (i know its backwards) and the rear case fan blows in the same direction so i have quite a bit more flow through the AC7 fins.

the 120mm fan on the top pulls all the hot air right out.

i do have the NB fan on since the pic. I was wondering what that was for when i saw it in the box

In the mobo manual they say only to use it if you have a passive cooling setup and that using it with air cooling will interfere with the airflow and cooling. Has it helped the temps in your case?

Another question. I am now thinking of returning my P5N-D and getting a Gigabyte EP35C-DS3R, Abit IP35 or a good P35 board. What are your thoughts? I have heard that the Intel chips are more stable and run cooler. Is that right? I am also thinking of returning my 8800GT and gettting a 8800GTS 512. I figure I dont really need SLI because I run @ 1440 x 900, is that right? I figure if I get a dual slot vid card it will be cooler but how is the noise? When my system is idle right now it is very quiet but I would like to be able to overclock. Thanks for the responses.
