at idle mb is 40 degrees celsius, and cpu is 44 degrees. I have two 120 mm fans, i hooked them up to power supplies fan 4 pin molex, maybe i should hook them up to regular 4 pin molex for more power? Any suggestions? btw, i got temps in the asus probe. Mike

ive done research and found that they do run a lil warm, I really want to get some more as5 and reseat the hsf to see if that works.

That does seem a little warm considering mine full load is lower then that. Have you checked their website to see if there is a bios update to recalibrate the sensors?

How was the HS surface? Was it rough and did you lap it?

and how hot is it in the room your pc is in. ambient temps mean everything. if its 80f in your room, you will have a fun time getting your temps down.

You could try removing your IHS if you are feeling a little adventurous. There is a really good guide to it on the site. I did it the other day and my CPU idles at 26*C with stock voltage and ambient temperatures of about 70*F or about 21*C.

You stated you wanted to use <b>more </b>as5, how much did you put on in the first place? You might have put on too much and the heat transfer is crap.

Also, those "Fan Connectors" on your PSU are pretty much worthless, unless you want a quieter pc. I have that same PSU, and plug your fans into "normal" 4 pin connectors, because the "fan connecters" REALLY SLOW DOWN your fans, trust me. My pc is loud now, but my temps dropped liek 6C from plugging them into normal 4pin psu connectors.

yes i was looking into that phantom, and on the topic of as5, only a pea size drop in the middle, i meant if i put more as5 on, im gonna clean the thermal paste off, lap my hsf, then reapply. Not put extra on haha. Mike

well i just did some serious cable managment, the psu only has one non fan 4 pin molex, so i just hooked up both fans and hd to that linking to each other. The pc still sounds the same, so I dunno if it worked or not. The next items I'll be getting is 1 more 120mm fan for the front intake and a fan controller. Hopefully running the fan controller will let me adjust fan even if i have to use the blue fan connector.

well temps seem to be a little better, gonna let it run and see if they stay. They are now around 30-33 degrees for the cpu and 35 degrees celsius for the system temps. Mike
