New rig too hot??

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone...Im all new to this. Finally i could work out my upgrade...bought a Foxconn P45A-S, Intel E8400 E0 and 4Gs of PC2-6400 Kingston Valueram and replaced them in my old PC.

Now when i run prime95 CoreTemp shows me 72C after 30mins RealTemp shows 68C max and Fox ONE (came with my mobo) shows it as 82C. Can somebody tell me which is more likely to be true?

I have a big ATX casing with front fan and side fan with cone both running @ full 2500RPM, and im pretty sure the stock cooling i use, perfectly fitted in(with the nice clicking sound) Room temp is around 32-34C (pretty hot at daytime)

Please help me with this? what is the max safe temp for my chip? is there anything i can do with my room temps without going for expensive coolers? I thought of getting into OC, but with this setup i dont think so Hope someone can help. Thank you!

if realtemp or coretemp says the tjunciton is 100C then its accurate. set them to 100C and they will give accurate temps.

Those temps are not dangerous, but if your chip is running at stock the temps are way above what they should be.

If you are running at stock I would go into the bios and undervolt the CPU until you can get a better cooler, try 1.15V...should be plenty of voltage for the stock frequency.

Definitely buy a better cooler...if you are on a very tight budget look into the Arctic Freezer 7

What is tjunciton. How can you set them on those programs? So do u think Fox ONE is inaccurate? sorry for asking

What is the safe lowest voltage for my CPU? is undervolting safe? sorry again for the lot of questions? Also i dont think i can buy a cooler, they are not available where i live
