So ok, either my ambient temps are too high, the stock cooler is crap, or there is something wrong with my CPU. Got my PC a year ago, specs as below :
Asus P55D-E LX
8GM 1333MHz RAM
Been reading tons of pages here, but at 138 pages it's just a little too much to read >.<<br />
I live in Malaysia, where daytime temps go from 31-35 Celcius and about 26-28 Celcius at night.
I've tried overclocking, and I've gotten stable 3.6GHz easily, but the temps are really really high.
Heck, even at default BIOS settings, IBT kick my temps into the mid 90's Celcius at Standard stress setting..
Idle temps at stock is about 45 Celcius, Gaming is about 70.
Got 3 case fans. One side fan, one front intake and 1 back exhaust. All 120mm. Got space for 2 more 120mm fans at the top but that doesn't seem to make any difference cos right now I have my PC on its side, side open and the ambient temp around my CPU isn't that hot, and not something that would raise my temps that high.
Is this just normal, or is something wrong?
