Question about system temperature

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi
The system temperature is around 42 C right after start up
CPU stays around 28 C
while the ambient temperature is 20C
is the temperature a bit higher?

Ps, I have four 1G G.Kill 6400 memory, plus two 250G SATA HDD, maybe those increase the temperature..
How can I cool them? Thank you

You're fine until you pass 60c.

What are you using to monitor temps? What are your cooling methods?

1. Fill out your system specifications in User CP above
2. Use CoreTemp for temperatures

Thats kinda odd that your system temp is 22c hotter than ambient and yet your CPU is only 8c above. Is the temp being report the chipset temp?, because that would make way more sense.

Use HWMonitor to know all your primary temps, or even Everest which shows ALL temps and info.

Those temps look ok for your rig (estimate since no pix), although could be much improved by adding a 120mm intake somwhere.
