25C always, error or awesome? - Page 2

it usually idles at 40-45 with 24% fan speed, so im assuming that the cpu is toasting up my whole box right now. there is a bit of heat emanating but every exhaust vent is ice cold. even the psu which in my experience is always the hottest.

I'm pretty sure that you have an error, but does sound like your rig is staying quite cool too.

By the way, you can make your rig appear in your sig like everyone else's by going to "User CP" --> "Add System" and put your rig info in there.

The 550 and 555 blacks run cool to begin with. Unlocking a duel core will give inaccurate readings. I would do as allikat has suggested to get within 5c of the readings.
My 550be after unlocking gave inaccurate readings and had to guesstimate using duel core readings.

when i first got this cpu, i immediately unlocked the cores and overclocked to ~3.5ghz using 215x16.5 and it ran stable in prime for almost 10 hours. then i tried to push it and mind you i never used any voltage adjustment, but since i pushed it past 3.6 i could never get it stable over 3.4 again, it seemed to lower my stable clock. is this common or could i have just slipped up somewhere? now i run it at 3.333 and that just finished a 10 hour run like a cake walk.
