Stock Cooling Temps - Page 3

post #21 of 28
Jester, even running mid 40's with your cpu i think its too hot, ive got the same cpu and idle i run 26 and load 38, this is with stock hsf and that pre applied thermal pad, aaand overclocked to 2.3ghz, so there must be something seriously wrong!

Remember everybody, it also depends on your mobo sensor and HOW it measures temps. Heck, it may be broken to begin with!

For me and my Zalman 9500, in a rather cozy room, idle is 36C and full load is 47C. I'm betting my temp is whacked off, cuz I'm only using a Venice 3000+, but wtv...as long as it works.

i believe it's 200 hours for AS5, not sure what stuff you used.

ok - i found out that the AX8 lies about its CPU's temperature. It seems to report the temperatures wrong even in the BIOS. So it turns out my CPU may not be running at 39 idle but infact 29 idle. What would you guys recommend be a safe margin (eg: current temp - 15 celcius) etc

atm - speed fan reports the temperature to be 49 but the HS feels not even warm - about the same as room. Also - the temperatures in speed fan rapidly fluxuate - could this be a sign of the false readings?

sorry to triple post - im running Prime95 with it on the hottest stress test (cant remember what its called) ill leave it a good half hour and see how hot the heat sink is then. If its still not even warm then i think i can conclude that my mobo is lying to me.

well then there you have it...your mobo is lying about the temps...i doubt that they were really as high as it was showing..im sure you've got nothing to worry about...and 29 idle is a great temp...and i think with the venice you should start to worry when you hit around 50-55 degrees.

the 30 mins is up and the base of the HS isnt even in the 30's

Speedfan still reports the temp to be at 60+ but i reckon its more like upper 30's

ill have a look around in the chemist for a digital thermometer and ill place it in between then heat sinks fins - ill make sure it touches the bottom.

I reckon i can get this to 2.5 safely
