AMD proccesor to hot?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just put together this new system, now I am wanting to make sure I have the cooling part setup correctly.


My setup is.

Corsair XMS3 4GB PC10666 DDR3 1333MHz 4096MB x2
MSI 785GM-P45 Motherboard
AMD Athlon II X4 630 Quad Core CPU
Cooler Master Elite 310 Mid-Tower Case
Corsair TX650W 650W Power Supply
Corsair Hydro H50 CPU Liquid Cooler
EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SE 1GB GDDR5 PCIe


Now on partial load my reading are this.

Video Card is Running at 41c min - 59c Max
Core 1/2/3/4 Min 31c max 39c
Tempatures TMPIN0 29cmin - 35c Max
TMPIN2 40c min - 47c Max

Now, I have the fan on the back connected to the raditor blowing in to keep the proccesor cooler - I have a fan in the front behind the panel sucking air out, I have a fan underneath the video card, sucking air out from the room and onto the video card (even tho the card already has a fan) - now I can fit a 180mm fan on the panel.. should I have the air come in or go out on the side? or does my setup need changed?

Ignore the horrible wiring, i just put it together im not finished lol.

There are two main aspects here.
1. if you use the panel fan to blow cool air in (using a dust filter of course), you will have positive air pressure which performs quite well and the inside will attract less dust.

2. The radiator fan is blowing in cool air, which is getting warmer by the radiator and thus increasing the ambient temp. It is recommended to blow the air out. So now it seems the opposite fitting of the panel fan might be useful.

If yours was a bigger case, the solution would have been simple. But in case a elite310 you will have to manually set the panel fan both ways and find out which config gives you better results. In your case, I suspect both will be equal.

It is running a little hot. Flip around the radiator so that the pipes are on top and you should see a performance increase. Also put the side fan so that it blows in that will help cool it down.

EDIT:You could also purchase super performance fans that sound like a jet but cool things down amazingly.

3+1 VRMs + 95W processor + no VRM cooling + tower cooler = no proper airflow radiation = hot VRMs = heat inefficiently spreads to CPU block = this heat added on

You may want to add some VRM heatsinks/cooling (i.e a fan) to keep that heat at bay. MSI VRMs are also known to get so hot that they blow up, but with 95W and keeping at stock [and with proper VRM cooling] you should be okay.

That and you should really manage the cables. That might actually be contributing a lot to the heat.
