temps...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
ok.....so I had my system stable at 2.5GHz with RAM using 2:1.33 divider (196.2MHz) and Vcore@1.55V

this runs stable and cool (max 45C during the day)

I switched my RAM back to my original generic value RAM and actually found that I could run it faster than mum's Geil RAM that I was using originally.

so now I have my RAM running at 232MHz but my system is not stable unless I run the Vcore@1.65V (have also increased Vdimm to 2.8V)

this runs nice and stable but temp gets to 52C during the day under full load using stock hsf.....I plan on getting better cooling but I just thought I'd get some feedback on using this config considering the daytime temp and considering that the AMD website lists the max. temp. for a Sempron 3100 as 69C.

Is it ok to use the higher RAM setting or am I better off running RAM lower with lower Vcore and temps.

there's about 3sec diff in Super-pi@1M

Best to keep the CPU's full load max @ 50°c or below.

any ideas on how much a big typhoon would reduce my temps???

looking for cheaper cooling options before I consider water

The TT BT works very well, especially if you get a better fan and use some AS5.
Actual temp reduction... couldn't say for sure but extra case fans to get the cool in the bottom/side out the back/top helps too!

I have 12cm fan going out the back and 8cm intake on the side..

I can fit another 12cm on the front as well...or an 8cm.

My other thought was maybe one of these (pic attached)

THERMALTAKE SONIC TOWER
MODEL : CL-P0071
FEATURES
Designed for LGA775, K8, P4 and K7
High performance fanless CPU cooler, 0dB cooling solution, reduce total system noise
Heatpipe technology, transfer the heat quickly
More surface area gives good heat dissipation
Aluminum fin soldered to copper base, perfect contact to ensure the best performance
Special designed fan holder can secure the optional 12 cm fan

Price $ 55

I almost got that cooler instead of the BT (Fry's had it for $30.00US), but then I realized that it's specifications are considerably lower compared to the BT. The BT has twice the number of heatpipes and several more fins (it feels heavier too). Both are good coolers, but my vote goes for the BT. I have seen some reviews were they compared the BT to entry level water systems like the Big Water and the BT managed to keep up rather well.

Ok so I had an 8cm side fan (in) and a rear 12cm fan (out)......I just went and bought a Thermaltake 4-channel fan kit with 2x8cm and 2x12cm with speed controls in a 3.5" bay.....but now my system is running about 5C hotter. and all I've added is a 12cm front intake.

I did remove the fan on my hsf hoping one of my new ones would fit but no joy......I may have unseated the heatsink??...and if I dont put the fan on in the exact same position would that affect it??

Make sure you've configured your fans for optimal air flow direction. Often times it is easy to get the flow direction on a fan confused. Another good guide to read would be this.

I personally use the front / side in and back / top out and it works wonderfully. System's currently running at 200 x 10 @ 1.400v @ 26 C Case / 36 C CPU Load .

I've heard nothing but good things about the Big Typhoon, although I personally don't have experience with it.

Also be sure to use AS5 properly.

Guides are included on the links.

Process:90nm SOI = SDAAIO3BA /SDAAIO3BO /SDAAIO3BX 69-70degrees cel. max

Thin and Light Notebooks = SMSBOX2LB = max temp is 95derees cel. max
130nm:
SDAAIP3AX/ Full-Size Notebooks = 95degrees cel max.
with a max proc temp like that i reall wouldnt worry too much, and if its a unlidded proc i would probly just go with a vapo chill micro.
