Smithfield core Temps

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
For a Pentium D 830 with a Thermaltake "Big Typhoon" Heatsink/fan & AS5, does an Idle temp of 34/36 deg. C and 45 Deg. C max. running a Moderate high usage Game seem about right? I think it is ok, but I have seen a machine with a P4 640 & same heatsink/fan that is running 22/23 deg. C at Idle. This heatsink/fan is so heavy, that pull-away from CPU can occur if not well secured.

Those are good temps, I have a typhoon on mine max load temps are 42c.

CPU temps vary greatly, depending on ambient temps. For someone to be running at 22°C, their computer must be in a very cool room. Anyway, I wouldn't have any concerns about running your CPU at 45°C under load. That's very reasonable for any processor on air cooling, especially a dual core one. If you have concerns about the contact between the HS and CPU, you can try reseat the heatsink to see if that affects the temps. You could also potentially rig up something within your case to help take some of the physical load off of the retention clips on the motherboard.
