CPU temps on the rise

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
i recently started checking my CPU temps, and im pretty shocked because it's winter right now and my CPU is 34C at idle and 40-45C on load.

im looking at my data that i added after i finished building my PC, and it was:

Idle: 27C
Load: 30-35C

that is a huge increase. i have sprayed out my computer with air and took out all the dusts and stuff. but it doesnt seem to affect the temp.

whats going on?

Which stepping is your Q6600?

Also did you try reseating your heatsink, clean old paste w/ alcohol based product, and reapply paste?

Remember it is a quad core.

Those temps are norm for that processor. Your heatsink probably set in after you finished your rig(idk). Have you moved your case location since you finished your pc? How about airflow? Are your fans dirty/dusty? What about cable management? You could try reseating your heatsink but I dont think its necessary.

the airflow i say isnt the best...the intake can only push around 40CFM..but i found a solution for it...http://canadacomputers.com/index.php...287&cid=FN.505

it can push about 70CFM at 18dBa. i read reviews around newegg and the majority of the reviews said at full speed it is quiet like advertised. but the rest said it gave out 35dBa worth of noise. im still gonna get it to try it out, i might also trying switching my Big Typhoon's fan with this since the stock fan on the BT has only 53CFM.
