Venice 3200+ Temps

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Please forgive me if this belongs in cooling but i thought it was more or less of a general knowledge question.

My current Stable Overclock is as follows

FSB 270
Multi X10
Voltage 1.75

I recently moved my PC from a cool basment to a carpeted up stairs room. In the basment my idle temps where 26-28c and load was no more the 42c. Upstairs room idle is 30-31c and load peeks at 49c. Now, considering im on stock Heat sink with 4 80mm fans in case, is this expected or normal? I thought it seemed a little high. If it is high, should i think about reapplying the thermal compond?

Any help or advice would be much apprciated.

Hot air is much lighter than cold air and, as such, your room upstairs is relatively hotter than the basement. So the increase in both idle and load temperatures is normal.
Heck I lowered my computer by 1 meter and the temps dropped 2C ! It was on a table and I put it on the floor.
If I'm not mistaken the maximum temperature allowed for a Venice core is around 67C so you're still in the safe range.

55c is a better mark to go by

55c is the exterem... 50c is recommended.
Your fine under full load at 49c but with a stock FHS with that much voltage! You are either very fortunate or the temps may be reporting inaccuratly.

I did relize there would be a decent temp increase but just wondered if this was natural. Yup, stock cooling still fairs pretty well with overclocking. Idealy i would lower temps maybe 5c degrees but..............

You'll be able to go higher if you pick up something like the Zalman 7700, 9500, or something else similar from another company (Thermaltake Big Typhoon, Thermalright XP series, etc.).

If your case/mobo can accomodate it then I suggest you go for Thermaltake's Big Typhoon. It's one of the best air coolers out there and it's relatively cheap. Combine it with Arctic Silver 5 and it should give you some pretty decent temps.
