New CPU Cooler - Page 4

post #31 of 37
honestly at this point i dont think there is much more you can do other than rechecking your thermal paste application but im sure thats fine. Maybe your CPU simply runs that temp end of story.
They arent dangerouse though so no worry.

ok.... i mean the temperature here is pretty high in the day and stays relatively high in the night so higher computer temperatures are to be expected..... (summer in Australia not fun).. So these temps are probably going to be the hottest each year.....
kinda the reason i wanted a cpu cooler is because the stock cooler wasnt really hacking it at these temps and it doesn't help that its in the oven like room

Also shouldn't having a better cpu cooler cool the whole system and other components a bit?

no the cpu cooler wouldnt make much difference to any other components in the case. Very rarely there are some that will blow air over the RAM slots but thats about it. Even then it doesnt really do too much.

When air cooling here is the general rule. You can never get below room temurature, no matter how good the cooler is. You can only get realatively close to room tempurature.

even water cooling wont ever go below room temps, they just do a better job of keeping it near room tempurature under high load.

The physics of cooling is actualy a strange interest of mine :3


So basicly if you room tempurature is around 30 C and your idle temps are about 35 C that will be nominal no matter how good the cooler. Its your stress temps that will count when comparing coolers.

well whats the best way of determining ambient temp or room temp? so i can know what to try and get my cpu around because if the room temp is 25 and I'm idling at like 40 i dont think that is good

a normal thermometer will do. ambient temps are the temps INSIDE your case when all the doors are closed.

So if you buy 2 cheap thermometers and put one inside your case and one outside your case near the intake fan(s) you can determine both the room tempurature and the ambient tempurature.

They make components do do the same thing that you can install into your computer. if you have the time/funds to do that and it seems like somthing you want to get into by all means go for it, but if not go with the cheap thermometer rout.

ok thanks.... i dont really have the funds so will probably just have to go with a cheapo thermometer

It probbably wouldnt matterTOO much as long as the air is blowing out the top. Theoreticly though(on a microscopic scale) if you had the fan on the bottom blowing air up and out, the top exhaust fan may create a mini slipstream of air bettween the cpu cooler and the top fan which would aid the airflow.
I may see if it will fit next time I reseat, unless I happen to be reseating a new, bigger cooler. Right now, though, I have the rear top exhaust fan blocked off. What's funny is that all of the different airflow arrangements I've tried so far have made zero difference.
