Newbie here Questions about my temps

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone im new to the forms and new to the I7 processor

I have my system over clocked, i have the I7 930 chip, I am currently running it at 4.193 GHz, I am running a Cool Master N520 non water cooled system

system is running very stable, i upgraded my CMOS to the latest version, which what recommended by post on here.

heres my temps, I need to know is these are safe.

core 0 41
core 1 40
core 2 42
core 3 39 these are my idle temps

at 96% CPU use all 4 cpu's
the core temps are in the low 60's highest i have seen them is about 63

i had a friend tell me i was going to fry my cpu, and i have read a few mixxed reviews about these temps,

is it worth changing to a water cooled system?

and i also have one other question

I am running a xfx radeon hd 5770, is it worth it to add a 2nd card to my system? right now in WOW & LOTRO i am getting about 30 to 32 FPS i would like to increase that rate a bit, would a 2nd card get me up to 40 to 45?

Thank you

Mike

63C is fine. Most people with Intel CPU's try to stay in the 70's under full load

I wouldn't want them any higher, but that's fine

On OCN, the answer will always be 'yes' , in the same way, is it worth getting a 990x - of course it it... not necessary though.

I'd guess, yes. I'm on my iPod, but I'd guess you can find some comparisons on google. 2 x cards don't equal 2 x the GPU power. They don't scale perfectly. 2 x 5770 would be a pretty powerful gaming rig though. What settings give you 30-32fps? Dropping the AA a setting can give massive fps improvements with a barely noticable difference in quality.

on LORTO all the graphic settings are set to max, 1920x1080

on WOW most are set to high, a few settings on medium, i am running that at 1920x1080

i have this system hooked thru HDMI to a 32" sony Bravia tv


BTW this isn't my first build, BUT it is my first game machine build, and my very first mutli-core intel chip, and i do LOVE it

my other machine is a AMD Phenom II x4 810 with 8 gig memory and a so so videocard with 1 gig of ddr3 memory, it is a great maching for facebook games LOL,
