Is it cool enough?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi all, new member here. I recently put together a system and I'm just wondering if the temps are with in acceptable limits compared to the norm.
Here's my setup:

Cooler Master HAF 932 black edition
4 fans + CPU fan:
1x200mm fan on the top which is connected directly to the PSU since i didn't have enough space on the MB to plug it in to.
3x120mm fans, one on the back of the case, 2 at the front (one of them installed behind the 5.25" drive covers)
Cooler Master V8 CPU cooler.

I haven't done any over clocking to the system and these are some of the numbers I've seen so far at idle and some light gaming: (Sorry if the picture is big, couldn't figure out how to make it smaller without loss of quality)



As you can see, HWMonitor Pro doesn't recognize 1 of my fans and the speeds don't go very high. I've tried a program called AMD OverDrive to change the speeds but no luck.

Anyway, that's not why I'm here. What I'd like to know is that according to the setup I have, are those temps ok? or should I be working to bringing them down more. A thought that I had was the 200mm fan on top of the case is messing up the air flow since it's spinning at full speed since it's connected directly to the PSU. Could that be a problem?

Try speedfan to monitor or adjust your fans.

whatever fans are connected to your motherboard you will have control over.

Thanks for the welcome and the quick replies. Good to know things are fine
I'm trying my hand at a few programs related to fan control and temp monitoring. Got lots to learn.

Thanks again

Speedfan and HWmonitor are my personal favorites.

Hi ffejrxx, I updated that list you linked the best I could. I don't know anything about voltages and such. I haven't touched them and probably won't until i get a firm grasp over the concept. What you see is what I got out of the box.

Not sure if this is relevant but in the motherboard manual it didn't mention my RAM as one of the compatible ones but there was one that was very close size and speed wise. Only difference was that My RAM needed 1.65Vs and in the manual it said 1.5v or something. But I popped them in and they ran without any problems.

I'll try searching the forums for some info on voltages, but any help with understanding why mine are high and how to fix'em will be appreciated.

its not too high, just dropping alot
its normal to drop some, .05-.1, but dropping .2 or more could cause problems

your psu is nice, same with the board, i dont see a reason for it do be doing that

amd says 1.125-1.4v, most phenom ii max around 1.55v tho
as long as it stays above 1.2v and temps are below 62c itll be fine
