Core temperatures

  1. Hello all. One of my case fans died so I bought another. Same size as previous but I have noticed that my system is running hotter now than it did before. Before hand it at idle it stayed around 52c to 55c at idle, probably a little high I know. Now it idles around 55c to 58c. I also noticed my cpu voltage had increased as well from 1.32 to 1.39. Other than wiping out some dust from the case and putting in the new fan, nothing else has changed. Shouldn't adding the new fan make the system cooler instead of hotter?

    I'm running.....

    Asus M4A79 Deluxe
    AMD Phenom II x3 720 BE
    2gb RAM
    NVIDIA GeForce 9800 gtx

    You should try lowering the voltage back down to 1.32

    Old fan dies.
    Replaced fan.
    It should be cooler now?
    Fan speeds are not mentioned, so its hard to say.

    It is rather high though.

    Those temperatures look high. They shouldn't be idling anywhere over 40C. You need to ensure that the HSF is attached securely on the CPU. Also consider applying some fresh thermal paste.

    I set the cpu voltage to 1.325 instead of on its default "auto" setting. Now my temps seem to be idling around 38c, which is alot better than it was. I intend to add an extra exhaust fan and apply new thermal paste soon. Thanks for the help :D
