Temp Question: Thermaltake Frio on i7-950

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a thermaltake frio on my i7 950 and i have been running the two fans in push/pull at 2500 rpms...and getting temps of 40C idle and 72C load at 4.2 Ghz 1.3 volts.

i moved the fans from 2500rpm to like 1300rpm and the temps dont change under load or at idle...

is that normal? lol and i also think my chip is running a little hot

If the radiator is cooling the coolant down to close ambient effectively at 1300rpm, a higher fanspeed wouldn't make that much of a difference.

Oh snap. Thought thermaltake specialized in liquid. Ah well.


Also, those temps are fine, quite similar to mine when I have my windows closed, seems like a fairly nice chip you have compared to a lot of the 950s I've seen on here that have required large voltages.
