    its not x 1.6 because 0 celcius = 32*f... its double the celisus temp + 32...

    Formula

    °F = (°C * 9 / 5) + 32

    Therefore implies that:

    °C = (°F - 32) * 5 / 9

    My CPU idle temp's only 19.3 C

    Mind you, i've only a P 750...:)

    According to my calculations it is 14F (though I did it in my head, not on paper) and the formula is

    °F = (°C * 9 / 5) + 32

    Therefore implies that:

    °C = (°F - 32) * 5 / 9
    As eddy already stated.

    It is 14F

    Interesting note: -40°C=-40°F

    Nick and Veh - where did you come up with those methods :confused:

    Toasted CPU

    My CPU runs at 60°C idle. Thats very "cool" isn't it. I must get a bigger fan soon. [Athlon XP 2000+] w/ [300watt]

    Re: Toasted CPU

    My 2100+ idles at about 45°C and that had me worried. Doesn't quite make it to 60°C loaded (after CPU burn of Sisoft Sandra and some gaming) but my new Lian-Li case with some more low rpm fans to improve air flow (including a blowhole at the top where all the hot air rises to) should help lower the overall system temps a little. Well I hope it does, otherwise it will just make the PC look a little nicer ;)

    Please note that the temperature and humidity in Scotland probably explains why I have lower temperatures than you Eddy.

    Currently using the Coolermaster HHC-L61

    Although it doesn't seem to do much better than the aluminium coolermaster I had on it before hand :confused:

    I might put my Y-Tech 4200rpm fan on it and see if that improves its performance. Never putting the Delta 6500rpm fan back on anything ever... never putting up with that awful noise again :D

    Now if that HSF used an 80mm fan, then it would be worth it, Arris. Every try an adapter?

    That is wrong too Veh, 123F=50.555C.

    Edit: BTW, I checked this using the temp conversion on the MS Powertoy calculator(I didn't realize until now it had a temp conversion) and checked it against the temp conversion table of the Pocket Ref (a book which contains more info and formulas than any one person should ever need)

    Ah I didn't either SB - thanks for pointing that out.

    And 123F is 50.5C...

    1,6 = 1.6 = 9/5

    1.6 is not 9/5. 9/5=1.8

    9/5 is used only when converting from C to F. When converting from F to C, you use the reciprocal 5/9.

    C=5/9(F-32)
    F=9/5(C+32)

    Why is this concept so difficult for some of you to understand?

    Yeh oops my bad, its not that I don't understand the concept, I do. I just didn't think before I posted that last one. I've known how to convert these temperatures for quite some time now.

    For this confusion I apologise.

    ive always thought it was the number doubled... then 1.8 is close enough! =P

    Whoever taught you that?!?!

    The guy who started using Fahrenheit (yeah his name was Fahrenheit) must have been insane. Fahrenheit makes no sense at all.

    Kelvin is my choice. Now that was some good thinkin' on his part. Is it C-178=K? I have forgotten.

    Kelvin is not quite like the other two because it is, for one thing, not measured in degrees, but Kelvin Units or simply K, actually measures the Kenetic energy per molecule. It is mostly used for calculations involving perfect gases, if I remember correctly, 0k means that a perfect gas has lost all its energy. I can't remember much more about it than that, only that
    0K(or absolute zero)= -216.16C or -459.69F

    Well, I looked into a book here to find it and apparently it was wrong. Looking in another source, it says that it is -273.16C
    The -459.69F however is correct, I double checked it outside of my original reference just now to be sure.

    ok so is the thread going to be changed to " OMG! My math is uber~messed up." now?

    lol@iss.

    One thing that I did find interesting from this thread as while I was searchign for links to explain Kelvin I came across the idea that there may be temps colder than 0K, temps is even the wrong word, you really have to understand the definations of things but apparently it may be possible or is possible to have a "colder" than 0K. I dont' know its probably above my head, but I find stuff like that interesting.

    Mine was @ 25o yesterday... and for an Intel Quad core Extreme... pretty good?

    I'm pretty sure that zero kelvin is absolute zero. no heat no light no energy and darn near impossible to obtain.
